Accepted to CCS

Our reactions to me getting accepted at the Center for Cartoon Studies, which, if you have not heard, is where I will be attending to get my MFA starting this fall.

Still does not feel real. We are moving across the country, almost as far as it is possible to go, in 2 months. And I still can't believe it. They believe it at work though. Preparations are being made. My job is dwindling away before my very eyes. I kind of wish it had been more abrupt. This is brutal. I gave 5 months notice!

Abe's monkey dance? He does that whenever he is really excited. This is not the first time I have seen it.

Yay! A real comic! Took me long enough. I have a bunch, but getting them digitized is a problem. Especially with the gray was, as you can see.
Well, if you are in Seattle area, I hope you can come to the Burke museum tonight, June 24, because from 6 to 9, we will have our natural science illustration art show or my class. The guy on this pillow is part of my piece. That is a pillow that you can buy and have in your house. :O
But I think this is the best thing in my shop right now: a corgi iPhone case!

Situation: dumb

I forgot to prep an image for today. So you get this angst filled drawing from yesterday instead of the real comic you were supposed to get. I did something dumb but fortunately a classmate caught it. OK, OK. I forgot to update Alyssa's biography in our class anthology and it had already been printed. But it is fixed now.

Tapir dress

So June 24, Tuesday, is the art opening for my class's show at the Burke museum in Seattle. 6 to 9. If you are in the area, come check it out. It should be awesome. My classmates are so talented. If you can't make it, the show will be up until October.

But I have been thinking about what I want to wear. Ideally, this would be it. But it doesn't exist. So I'm thinking a nice dress and some knee high socks with whales.

Rabid Squirrel

And I scare all the clients because I am right next to the door of the training room. In our old building, I was hidden away in a corner.

Swimming dodos

Actually swimming suit dodos. Next maybe actually swimming dodos.

Leaning Tower of Tea Bags

I finally did stop this. Enough people thought I was gross to influence my behavior. (Apparently that number is three.) But I do like looking at them. I drink black tea at work - mostly Irish breakfast - and I love the color of the dry tea bags. Beautiful reds and browns. No one understands me.

Here's what I actually intended to post last Thursday. This might not seem super amazing, but this is the cover of the comic I did as part of my MFA application to the Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont. The awesome part is, I got in! We are all moving to Vermont in August sometime. I hope to be able to keep up this comic. I don't plan to have a regular job while going to school. It is going to be a lot of work, but I think I should be able to do both.
Anyways, you can read the whole comic online.
