Guest artist: Christopher Baldwin of Spacetrawler!

Spaaaaaace!!

Today’s guest episode of Wondermark is by my comics colleague Christopher Baldwin!

Christopher is the talented artist of a number of comics, notably Spacetrawler (a sci-fi adventure strip) and Little Dee (an all-ages humor strip).

Thanks, Christopher! Check out his stuff!!

Hummingbirbs I have known

watta birb!!!

A few months ago, we saw a hummingbirb making a nest outside our bedroom window.

She laid some eggs and then there were BABY BIRBS and they were VERY CUTE.

Here are some of the pictures my wife and I took of them!

(I am embedding these as tweets mainly so the videos play, but if you can’t see the pictures in your email or feed, visit this post on the site instead, maybe that’ll work!)

That’s my little boy up there!! He is TEN DAYS OLD and he is extremely small still. His main interests right now are:

1. Snoozing
2. Slurping down liquid
3. Wiggling

I am told this is normal.

Comics will continue at an irregular pace!! Make sure you’re on the email list or Facebook page or Twitter feed or RSS feed.

Thank you very much for the well wishes you have sent as well! Mom and baby are fine and so am I.

Our baby is coming!

The time has come! (Comic updates may be intermittent for a bit, thanks for understanding!)

Audio of “Unusual Obsessions” panel from ECCC!

At the Emerald City Comicon last weekend, I participated in this panel with Wolf Fan Dylan Meconis, Adventure Cartoonist Lucy Bellwood, and Dinosaur Nerd Kory Bing:

The Power Was In You All Along: How to Turn your Weird Talents and Unusual Obsessions into Authentic, Original Art

The creative world is full of copycats and trend-followers. It’s tempting to go with the crowd, but what if the real secret to success is…originality? And what if your best ideas lie hidden in your weirdest skills and most unusual passions?

Lucy was savvy enough to record the panel in its entirety (as she always does) and so here it is, for your listening pleasure!

It’s full of anecdotes from fun people, and I even learned stuff from it too. Thanks to Dylan for putting it together, and to those who attended in person for laughing in all the right places.

UPDATED TO ADD: Dylan has posted the slides too!

THIS WEEKEND: Emerald City Comicon – Panel schedule!

I'M GOING TO wish they had a better promo image

It’s time once again for Seattle’s loveliest comic convention! Come visit me on the skybridge connecting the convention center with the conference center annex across the street.

I will be at the TopatoCo booth (#1102) per usual, all four days, standing DIRECTLY OVER the traffic on Pike Street. HOPE NOTHING HAPPENS LOL

I’ll have a variety of attractive wares for sale, and I will also be doing Roll-a-Sketches!
