What are the haps my friends

August 16th, 2007: Guys the latest news on Jurassic Park IV seems totally awesome. They are giving the dinosaurs guns. There will be velociraptors holding submachine guns. Randall is going to die when he sees it. The guy in the article I linked to is all down on the idea and I really can't figure out why. If I met him I would say, hey, the question mark in your headline should be an exclamation mark! For serious.

So hey, Toronto readers will be PLEASED to pick up Now Magazine this week, because there's a feature called "My Style" there in with colour photo of me talking about the clothes I wear and where I got them and for how much. GUYS, IT IS SO EMBARRASSING. Oh my goodness. It's a good article but I defy anyone to have a picture of themselves in print like that all over a city and not to feel what I will characterize only as "unending shame". It does have a nice mention of the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend though! It'll be rad. You should come!

YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?

One year ago today: suddenly: comics!
