If you're in Chicago tonight you should come check out this show. It's got a bunch of good stuff in it, not least Mark Booth (below) and Deb Sokolow (below that) who both rule. It's in Pilsen near 18th and Halsted. It's also a benefit for Open Books which might be the best bookstore in the city, and is also a non-profit promoting literacy. Curated by the coincidentally named Sara Drake and Becka Mallard.

breaking news from the interbleb

This interview I did went up a week or so ago at The Long & Shortbox of It, a comics blog.

-Finishing Big Questions
-What you get when you cross Tintin with Daniel Higgs
-A fully painted strip I'm about to self-publish (more on that soon)
-the New Chicago Comics show that was at the MCA in January

Also blogged recently at D&Q was a deeply satisfying comparison between the upcoming, aforementioned Big Questions and Yoshihiro Tatsumi's A Drifting Life, John Porcellino's King-Cat Classix, and the Chicago Manual of Style.

And lastly, here is a post at Busy Beaver Buttons' blog about another button mural I did recently in a private residence, using about a century's worth of family photos as material.
