Look! Minty Lewis drew a Freddy strip! Minty is the author of the HILARIOUS book P.S. Comics, and the awesome comic Salad Days. She and her husband Damien Jay (also an amazing cartoonist) and their baby Sally are one of my favorite families ever.
She has inspired me also to start these up again. At the moment I'm working on Lou #2.
In other news, you can now buy Freddy Stories on Amazon!
And I've decided to do a new fun project, something totally and completely for fun. Chuck and I have been watching Friday Night Lights, and I know it's kind of old now but, it's absolutely one of my favorite shows ever in the world. Actually, it might be my #1 favorite. I have grown so attached to the characters, and the family dynamics in it are so complicated and well developed, and there is this overarching sense of fairness, justice and hope that I love. Plus, Taylor Kitsch is a babe.
We aren't done watching the show yet, we're on season 4 still, so don't give me any spoilers. BUT I've decided that I want to print a Friday Night Lights fanzine! I think I'll probably call it "Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose", but not sure yet...
The page size will be 8.5" x 11" folded in half (so 4.25 x 5.5). I'm looking for anything that has to do with FNL; comics, art, writing, girly collages with hearts, whatever!
it will be all black and white. Please send bitmaps or 600 grayscale tiff files to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I haven't decided on a deadline yet.
I'll keep you posted, it's possible I'll be starting a tumblr for this!
