The always interestin’ J.T. Dockery just posted an informal interview with yers truly on his blog. Click th’ pitchur to give it a gander, an’ be sure to browse around while yer there. J.T. makes some fine cartoons and rants some wild rants about comics, whiskey, and the few other things that matter in this godforsaken world.
If you (like me) didn’t git a chance to go to MoCCA this year, you kin still read th’ Cartoon Crier in th’ comfort of yer own cave. Now no one will see you weepin’. Mind yer keyboard.
Click th’ cover or RIGHT HERE, sweet hearts.
I recently had th’ somewhat dubious honor o’ co-editing (with R. Sikoryak and James Sturm) a collection of the saddest strips we could cull from the communities of The National Cartoonists Society and The Center for Cartoon Studies. It’s now off to the presses.
The Cartoon Crier is printed on newsprint in the tabloid format, and packed to the brim with morose and melancholic cartoons (old and new) from:
Ivan Brunetti, Patrick McDonnell, James Kochalka, Lynn Johnston, Bill Griffith, Michael Kupperman, Greg and Mort Walker, Anders Nilsen, Brendan Burford, Jim Rugg, Tom Gammill, Jeffrey Brown, Greg Evans, Melissa Mendes, Blaise Larmee, Bil Keane, James Sturm, R. Sikoryak, yours truly, and many other members of the NCS and CCS communities. It’s a sadstravaganza! Gitcher cryin’ pants on and join the pity party!

The Cartoon Crier will be available first (and free) at MoCCA on April 28th. It will also be available as a free download on May 1 from the website of The Center for Cartoon Studies. Whoot.
Still gettin’ th’ hang o’ this Tumblr thang.
Here’s a cartoon essay I did on “Naughty Pete” that The Comics Journal was kind enough to run on their blog back in November.
