The Plot Thickens…

Okay, it’s a bit short on details, but why do I get the feeling that things are about to get very interesting out there?

Back home from our first-ever visit to New Zealand and the family (Ivy, Sky, and I, with the role of Winter being played by Sky’s friend Kendra) had a fantastic time.

Webstock was top notch. Hung out with and loved performances by Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley, met great brains like David McCandless, Peter Sunde, and Tom Coates, played Werewolf for the first time (Go, Villagers!), and had lots of good food and good conversations.

Wellington is a beautiful city. We’re so adding it to The List (our friends will know what I mean).

Big shout out to the 40 or so wonderful cartoonists we met this weekend in both Wellington and Auckland. You guys rock.

And thanks of course to Dylan Horrocks, ambassador for the Kiwi comics nation, our host in Auckland with his adorable family, and one of our favorite people in all of comics.

Back to the drawing board!

    My employers from Symplicit were at Webstock and heard you speak, Scott. Said you were great, then got you to sign my copies of Understanding Comics and Reinventing Comics. So I thanks you too!

    So how was the Land Down Under? Where women glow and men plunder? Can you hear the thunder? You’d better run, you’d better take cover.

  6. Jem says:

    Thanks so much for visiting New Zealand, Scott! You made my Webstock. Glad you enjoyed Wellington, it’s a pretty special city.

    You met Amanda Palmer? I hear she’s really nice. And cute. I hear she’s cute. Any chance of an introduction?
