BIG NEWS:Fellowship at CCS

Hello hello, readers and friends and foes,

I have something new that I am honored and thrilledto report:
I have been appointed as The 2013/14 Fellow at the Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont!

Next school year, I will pack up my polyester dresses and head to White River Junction for a snowy year of drawing.

BUT- You know I will return to Portland.
Because this is where I live. It is my home.
So what I'm saying is, don't worry- Clutch McBastard and I will be reunited sooner than you know it.

Missing Beija Georges

Dear Readers, strangers and friends,

It has been a very busy two months (with touring and everything) , and now that I am home the loss of the dogs is hitting hard.
If you have a request, or an order, and it takes me a little while to respond, please understand.
And if you are someone who generously donated when Beija had cancer this fall, thank you again so very much. We appreciated the extra time together.

Take care,

LISTEN TO ME on my favorite podcasts.

Greetings, people of Earth. I write to you from slate-skied Portland, Oregon, where I am home from tour and absorbing the feeling of being in a dogless home for the first time in my adult life. It is heavy. 
Now that I have bummed you out, let me offer you a few things that I've done lately:

1. I was on my favorite podcast, "How Was Your Week" with Julie Klausner. 
You can listen to it here, or on iTunes.

2. I was on my other favorite podcast, Porchlight. I performed live at the Verdi Club with Michael Ian Black, April Richardson & Dave Hill  during SF Sketchfest, and while M.I.B. is not on the podcast, you have to just take my word for it. What a thrill! 
Here is the Libsyn link and the iTunes link to listen to the podcast.

you can listen to me on Livewire! radio on OPB, with guests The Dandy Warhols and basketball player Bryan Grant, who got a standing ovation in the theater.
