A belated blog post on going to the opening of the exhibit MoCCA has up on Will Eisner’s work. Amazing how the museum can put up so much in a relatively small space. There’s a wealth of gorgeous originals from full color paintings to comics pages in B&W by him that are awesome. Also very […]

Back in the UK

I’ve had a lot of contacts with Scotland recently, which is nice when I’m so far away. Most recent thing is that my old university just did a piece on me and will commission a comic about my time there for their magazine: http://www.gcu.ac.uk/alumni/newsevents/news/bydate/2011/1/name,21501,en.html But hey – I went to Edinburgh University too, and no […]

A Scotsman talks…

Just to extend on what I noted already regarding our recent lecture talk in Glasgow, me, Chie and Paul Gravett, involving pages from THE STORY OF LEE: I enjoyed that talk – it was odd to have my VOICE only appear back in my home country, while my BODY remained in Japan! But why not… […]
