So, I was asked to purchase an ad in the local high school yearbook.
What the heck, why not.
It looked so pretty, I had to get a photo before I rammed a knife into it and made a total mess.
What you don’t see was my wife squashing a mixture of melted butter and spices all up under it’s skin and then toothpicking the hide down at 5:30 this morning. Not as easy as the recipe made it sound. Plus, your arm looks really, really, really nasty when you’re done squishing and smooshing butter goop under there. Really nasty. You don’t wanna know.
At first, I couldn’t think of what I’d like to put on the site for the Fourth Anniversary.
There’s no tradition to pull from, as I utterly forgot the anniversary every time before this.
So I settled, after scrolling through some photos I keep “For putting on the website someday”, on some shots of the tables I’ve displayed Hubris stuff (and other silliness)on since starting this experiment.
Here you go:
So there you go. The evolution of the Hubris Public Awareness Campaign Thus Far. I’ve already had a few requests from you guys to attend Cons in your area. I’d love to. Often, though, transportation is going to be the bugaboo. Salt Lake City is one I’d like to do, but driving all this stuff out there is looking iffy, and flying/shipping is pricey. Maybe I need to finish up the new Hubris books and do a Kickstarter just for Con Appearances. Shall I bring the unicycle, do you think?
Sean Kleefeld has been in the Hubris strip… and he has a blog. It’s about cartooning!
(He’s not the only one, of course. TSOJ makes an appearance or two or more in the strip and he has a blog.)
Sean’s blog mentions me in passing this week. So you can CLICK HERE and go read it, and then, if you can rise to his cartoonin’ trivia challenge, leave him an answer in the comment section.
…And as for TSOJ’s blog… it’s all filled with Japanese stuff, and only some of it has cartoony aspects. I’m not saying that’s a downside- it’s just… y’know… MORE cartoony stuff is goodly.
Maybe he could start translating Hubris into Japanese for his blog! Yeah!! Hey, TSOJ! Manga Hubris!
