"A silly man’s life doesn’t have any less meaning than a serious man’s life. Both have the same struggles, the same sorts of hurdles to overcome, the same sorts joys and failures and triumphs."

— Quoting myself.  The newspaper Seven Days wrote an article about my letter to my teenage self.

A comic strip about the cold snap.  Drawn as a sci-fi space fantasy starring my Glorkian Warrior character.  This ran this week in my local paper, Seven Days.

SURFING.
I was in Waitsfield, VT yesterday… teaching a comics class to some kids at the church next to the Library.  Afterwards the family and I went to The Mad Taco.
I was so pleased to see my comic strip hanging next to the counter in the restaurant.  A huge wave of happiness hit me.  Followed by a instant crushing sadness, mourning the end of my strip all over again.

All year I’ve been running this weekly comic strip FUNGUS in Seven Days (the local paper here in Burlington, VT).
I’m serializing short stories starring a variety of different fungal creatures.  Most are about partying, computers, or God.
The first Fungus book (which precedes the weekly strip) is available for download.  Or you can get the physical book.  Some of the serialized stories from the weekly strip have ended up in anthologies, including Alternative Comics #4 and Beach Girls.

The guy I wrote about in this old episode of American Elf wrote a story about what it meant to him to appear in the strip.  And to him I say… Thank you so much for being a part of my giant crazy project in your own small way.  (Strip cut out from our local paper, Seven Days.)

For the last decade my comic strip American Elf has run in my local weekly paper, Seven Days. I drew it as a daily, and picked three strips each week to use in the newspaper. Now of course, American Elf has ended. I quit drawing it on December 31 but the last strip appeared in the paper this week, actually. If the strip meant something to you over the years, why not write a letter to editor, expressing yourself! Thanks.
(A new strip by me starts in the paper next week.)

This is the first interview I’ve done about quitting American Elf… in my hometown paper, Seven Days.  Oh, and they mentioned SuperF*ckers!  You know the world is coming to an end when they mention SuperF*ckers in the newspaper.
