Screw men. Can’t live with’em, can’t kill’em.
heh. naaah… I love men. 😉
Just made my accreditation-thingie for Angoulême and had a sneak peak at the celeb-guests that will be attending this years festival.
Crumb is gonna be there. He’s cool.
That guy who illustrated The league of extraordinary gentlemen will attend. (he’s apparently quite young. Under thirty if I remember correctly. Impressive. To get to work with Moore at such a young age…)
One of the guys who illustrated Harvey Pekars American Splendor will be there too.

It was simply… brilliantly cut.
If you have’nt seen the film, you really should. Great actors, lovely music and lot’s of nnnierrrds. ^_^
I’ve got my fanzines/mini-comics halfway finished. They’re ready for printing, just gotta figure out what to do with the cover… Glitter? Hand coloring?

I’m gonna miss this part of comic creating when I get printed on a bigger scale.
But, heeey! I’ll allways be me. I’m still gonna draw and write letters and notes with my crafty knick-knackery and manic expressions of love for people I like. ^_^
And remember my dear friends:
Life is like a box of
