I’ve been sick as a dog with a summer cold (no fun, not pretty) all weekend, but feeling a little better. Let me show ya some items from the interwebs I’ve been occupying my time with…
- This morning’s Sunday Interview over at The Comics Reporter features a conversation with American Born Chinese author Gene Luen Yang. The aforementioned book was the first graphic novel to have been nominated for a National Book Award and the interview focuses heavily on Prime Baby, which appeared in The New York Times Magazine. The man’s got credentials and some interesting things to say, and Mr. Spurgeon’s interviews always shine. Read it here.
- If unconfirmed and unsubstantiated scuttlebutt is your thing, check out this rumor from Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool regarding a new shop coming to the little isle we call Manhattan. This rumor- and I stress RUMOR– was mentioned to me the other night at Jim Woodring’s original art show opening (a quick jaunt away in Brooklyn at Scott Eder’s Gallery and running through July 16th) and was the first I’d heard about it. After further investigation, and reserving opinion and conjecture for anther time and place (track me down in public or something for the time being), the most telling line in this piece is from Rich himself: “If you have any ideas about venue, name or owner, do let Bleeding Cool know.”
- But feel free to bombard the thread’s comments section with FP testimonials.
- Did you know about this? www.teefury.com “TeeFury was started in 2008 by a bunch of artists who love limited edition t-shirts. At TeeFury you will find a new amazing tee every 24 hours for just $9 [!!!!, ed.]. Each of our tees are super limited-edition, being sold for only 24 hours or until sold out, which ever happens first. After 24 hours the t-shirt is removed from teefury.com, never to be made available for sale again (at least through teefury.com – artists retain full rights to their artwork and may choose to make the piece available at a future date).
This was today’s limited edition tee:
