Tom Spurgeon said it best on Twitter: “I would empty my wallet for Jim Woodring were he to walk up to me and ask, so of course I’ll give something to this…”
I’m always excited by a new Woodring book, but when I can tell that Jim himself is especially excited about a book, that’s an event in the making. Let’s help make it happen, shall we?

Good luck to all the artists at this year’s 24 Hour BD event in conjunction with the international comics festival in Angoulême.
451 Participants… Yikes!

I’m going to continue to be in Hibernation much of this year while working on the book, but as long as the entire Internet rolled over and growled this morning, you can add my growl to the chorus.
Have a great 2012!

Things are pretty quiet here, while I concentrate on my graphic novel in the coming months.
Did want to take a moment though to acknowledge the unspeakably sad news that cartoonists Tom Hart and Leela Corman have lost their little girl, Rosalie Lightning. There’s a fund to contribute to, if you’d like to help with the practical aspects of the coming weeks, and of course, the condolences have been pouring in. This note by their old friend and mine Jon Lewis feels about right to me. These are deeply loved members of our community, and with good reason. Their beautiful family deserved a better road.

The legendary Todd Klein (quite probably comics’ best all-time letterer, and an old pal of mine from my DC production department days) and artist Shawn McManus have released a truly unique comics gift for the upcoming holidays: A Freelancer Game Board!
Order yours here, learn more about the creation of the board here, and get a closer look here.

The story of Steve Jobs and Apple is more complicated than most news outlets would lead you to believe, and there were plenty of great minds that led to the original Mac and that contributed to all that followed.
But anyone who thinks that Jobs’ contributions to society can somehow be reduced to “marketing” or “fashion” betrays a complete ignorance of the power and importance of great design.
Great design can and does change the world. Poor design can and does ruin lives.
To Steve Jobs, and to everyone trying every day to put their own dent in the universe, thank you.
