No Monster Paradise this week, because I am in San Diego for the National Cartoonists Society’s Reubens Awards! I haven’t been to San Diego since Comic Con 2007, a mentally exhausting affair.
I’m really looking forward to this trip! I’ve been working hard lately, doing a LOT of contracting work for Cartoon Network. While challenging, my day job consumes a big chunk of creative energy and cuts into my precious GOMP time. So I hope to fire up that creative spark by communing with my fellow cartoonists and return home rested and excited to draw more girls and monsters! And, of course, some refreshment at the infamous Bali Hai won’t hurt, either. 🙂
Oh, and for those wondering just what the heck the girls are doing, they’re imitating the Reubens statue, as designed by Rube Goldberg. Maybe someday GOMP will get a nomination! *sigh* A girl cartoonist can dream…
Wishing you all a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend!
