Port port port
I am still in Portland, and boy, am I meeting some talented cartoonists in this town! Just in Periscope Studio alone, there are a veritable bevy of amazingly talented folks from indie and mainstream print and web comics. And they've been kind enough to let me come work in their shared space while I'm down here -- which is a big change for someone like me who is used to working in a home studio in relative isolation. Being surrounded by so many great writers and artists while I'm working has been fun as heck, and a great motivator to boot. I am going to miss it!
And hey... if you are a Portlander yourself and want to support a local comic book store and a non-local cartoonist, the Floating World and Cosmic Monkey comic book stores now both have a limited number of signed-and-sketched-in copies of Sam and Fuzzy on their shelves! (EDIT: It sounds like Floating World might be out... I will try to get them some more tomorrow!)
