I Skipped Lunch at the Comic-Con, but not the Lunch Lady!

Just got back from the yearly trip to the Comic-Con where I got to see the terrific Jarrett Krosoczka and get the two first volumes of his brand new kids graphic novel... Lunch Lady: Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute and Lunch Lady and the League of Librarians! I haven't read them yet, but they smell good!

Have a taste for yourself with this video!

A Midsummer Night's Dream in a Canyon

As a comic artist who draws settings populated with characters acting out emotions , I love seeing a good play. This weekend, a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream stole my heart! It exploded with energy, creativity, fun, and intelligence. The actors were athletic, bold, and versatile. They gave heart to their lines. One minute they made you think, the next they made you laugh. And the setting for this play couldn’t have been better: a theater in a canyon, where the hillside merges with the stage, with trees everywhere, even center-stage. A 10-year old girl sitting nearby told me that it was her first Shakespeare’s play and that she had loved it. If you’re in the Los Angeles region, go see it! It’s at the Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum (schedule) and tickets start at $10. Totally worth it for great fun and greater inspiration!
