What are the haps my friends

February 2nd, 2011: Remember the Canadian usage-based billing petition I linked to yesterday? The Prime Minister has ordered a review of the decision to make Canada's internet access extremely terrible, due March 1st, which is great. We've still got to keep pressure on till then, but this is a really good sign! If you're Canadian I'd encourage you to sign the petition.

Yesterday I signed 160 books for people and I'm doing the same thing today! Popular clothing requests include top hat (NICE) and Batman costumes (NICE). T-Rex is a classy guy, especially when I draw him in those fancy duds! Unfortunately the signed book option is gone now as I have to go back to Canada tomorrow.


Hey, my new book Romeo and/or Juliet comes out in less than a month! It's my choose-your-own-path version of the Shakespeare play featuring tons of great illustrations. To celebrate - and to also convince you to purchase it! - I've posted the first page, and every day we vote on which option to follow. We're doing a LET'S PLAY ROMEO AND/OR JULIET and you should totally join us!

One year ago today: anyone who argues the moon landings were faked is someone who is arguing that bags of poop aren't orbiting around us THIS VERY INSTANT. i ask you: do you REALLY want to be friends with such a person??
