Last minute announcement! I’ll be at the Mocca Arts Festival in New York City tomorrow because it’s 10 blocks from my apartment. I won’t have a table or anything. Rather, I’ll just be rambling from display to display and getting in adventures like the wandering cartoonists of old. If you want to chat you’ll just to recognize me by my famously penetrating stare/shabby clothing. Above image is from a comic I’ve been working on. More art/comics/announcements to come soon! I swear!
I’ve finished my novel!
It’s called Dates Worse Than Fate. The Premise: terrible dates combined with terrible moments in human history! Would you like to read it? I would also like you to read it. But that requires a literary agent or publisher. Are you one of these people/entities? If so, well, confession: I love you. Please contact me! My info is on this page. I’ve only met one literary agent once. It was five years ago after I did a reading on the Lower East Side. She gave me her card, which I subsequently lost. Are you that particular literary agent? Well, confession: I love you– no, seriously, you were very beautiful!
Are you not a literary agent/publisher? Yeah, me either! But you can still help! I created a Facebook group in the hope that if many people joined it, the published book would spontaneously materialize from our collective desire. Please join it here! If you don’t have Facebook, then you’re a stronger person than I will ever be– just comment below this post if you would like to see the book in print!
Thank you, by the way, to all the posters in the comments sections who have said kind and encouraging things about my work. And also thank you to all the posters who have just said, like, really insane things that are sort of creepy in that way that only the internet is creepy. Confession: I love you most of all.
UPDATE (4/20/11): I’ve created a site for the book where you can read excerpts!
Wendell Luckow, a film student at Colorado University in Boulder Colorado, has adapted A Lesson Is Learned Episode 10 “NOW WE ARE POOR AGAIN” into a melancholic short film for the Boulder 24 Hour Shootout, a shoot-a-film-in-24-hours contest (which must involve a shooting). Ok, well I made that last rule up. Find it here!
If I remember correctly, this is the third film student film adaptation of A Lesson is Learned comic, but bears the distinction of being the first one posted on the internet. However, we’re well on our way to a total Star Wars Uncut-esque recreation of the run!
