So the last couple of days I’ve been working towards some button designs. There’s a bunch up on the site & a few more coming. I just have to get to the point where I am actually going to places to sell them & putting them up on ebay & such. But for now, you can see them on the Silber Button Factory page.
The Sequential Underground podcast I’m on is up. Listen if you feel the need to hear cartoonists ramble & go off topic.
I actually did some work on comics. I think I finished drawing my semi-secret UVDS:Bunny! comic & I started writing a new issue of REH. Good to be semi-productive.
I did a little brewing. In four weeks I should have some beer & three new meads ready. Kinda exciting.
I got a letter from Dave Sim where I’d told him about the problems I’d had with Kickstarters for music compared to comics & he speculated that part of the problem is that the music industry is kinda built around a mystique of how much money things cost & how much money people have, where with comics pretty much everyone knows there’s not much money & almost any creator can be approached if you go to the right convention. Which is an interesting thing to think about. I think music is still a bit about the mystique of glamour more-so than pretty much any other artistic career. You never really hear about america’s ten wealthieast sculptors. So maybe if I want music backers I need to sell my rock & roll party lifestyle instead of my sad-sack cartoonist lifestyle.
Here’s a video from the Small Life Form show a couple weeks ago:

Last Night’s Dream:
I’m at a historic battleground in Texas with rolling hills littered with tombstones. Walking along the hills I see the ocean in the distance. It’s a darker blue than I’ve ever seen it & it’s moving slowly, like it’s made of honey.
