So here’s an homage of sorts to Scott McClouds UNDERSTANDING COMICS (http://scottmccloud.com/) I did for last years POTTY HUMOR sideshow at LUTEFISK SUSHI (www.cartoonistconspiracy.com/sushi). As you may have guessed, the POTTY HUMOR sideshow takes place in the bathroom of the gallery. Anyway, back in 2000 Scott McCloud came to town and gave a big talk about how one day comics and the internet would be one, and OH! how I scoffed!!! So, for the record: McCloud-1, Danno-zero.
On a side note, my buddy RYAN DOW (http://ryandow.com/ic) is currently loaning me his copy of the graphic novel THE FRONT by JERZY DROZD (http://www.indyplanet.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=473), and I just wanted to assure him that his comic is still dry and in one piece…..for now.
Also, if you find yourself in Northeast Minneapolis tonight(Thursday, June 25th), stop by from 6pm to 9pm at the 331 CLUB (331 13th Ave NE) and take part in DRINKING LIBERALLY (http://thecuckingstool.blogspot.com/2009/06/cartooning-at-drinking-liberally.html). The spotlighted drunken political rabbler-rouser of night will be my buddy KEN AVIDOR (http://dumpbachmann.blogspot.com/) who recently did the cover for FALSE WITNESS: THE MICHELE BACHMANN STORY comic that I also did work on (and YOU can order for yourself at www.biasedliberalmedia.com) . Ken, myself, and DANIEL J OLSON (http://bewilderedkid.com/blog) will be on hand to chat and happily sign that copy of FALSE WITNESS you will be able to buy from us in person. Hope to see you there!
Heres that lovely cover to FALSE WITNESS Ken did:
