I really love your tape but I hate your inventions

One of the coolest guys I met down in San Diego was Jason Sigala. Four out of five doctors agree that Jason is the leading cause of Niego. On Wednesday, Niego hit its 100th hillarity-filled strip. Sounds like an epidemic!

I also finally got to meet the infamous Ryan Estrada. He wasn't exactly how I had pictured him, but that's probably because I pictured him as the spitting image of his cartoon avatar: rubbery, spastic and constantly over-emoting. By comparisson, the real man is actually pretty laid back! But really, who wouldn't be?

The plain nicest artist I met at the convention was Girly's Josh Lesnick. I think the man excretes earnestness from his pores. I'd heard he was shy, but either that was just a rumour, or my calculated brand of abrasive friendliness frightened him out of it. Another one of the many cartoonists I wish I'd had more time to talk to. I guess there is always next year!

I will eat your family

When you read my comics about Noosehead, you might get the impression that I have it in for metal music. That's not true at all! I like a lot of metal bands... although, the only recent metal band that I have any interest in is System of a Down, and I probably shouldn't call them a metal band unless I want a load of emails aiming to educate me about what "real" metal is. (I don't, really.)

So, last week I was busy registering and paying for next year's Comic-Con booth. You can expect to see the same Dayfree Press crew representing next year, and believe me, that is a good thing. I couldn't have asked for better booth mates! Kent and Scott, Pontus and Christian, Steven and Jeph, and friendly outsider Eric from Radioactive Panda... I'd never met any of these guys in person before, but we all had a great time together. I hope I get the chance to meet the other Dayfree members in person some day, too!

Dropped off in a culture counter-clockwise turned around

If you're not from Canada you may not know this, but up here, today is one of my favourite holidays: "Everyone-wanted-an-arbitrary-day-off-in-August" day. Across the nation, we all take the day off to reflect on... I guess on what a gyp it was back when there were no national holidays between July 1st and Labour Day. I could definitely use some time to collapse into an exhausted pile, so I'm going to try to make the most of the day by not making the most of the day. Maybe I will sleep through the whole thing!

I've got plenty to do when I return. I still haven't addressed any of that growing virtual pile of email. I also need to figure out the best way to safely mail the remaining copies of the Sam and Fuzzy Comic-Con book, so that I can start taking orders for them online. I don't know if I have enough of these to satisfy the demand, but if not I'll try to get some more printed up.
