|Comics starring ME... but not BY me!

I have been ON THE ROAD for a whole week!|
Mark and I drove from the midwest to Toronto last week, for the Toronto Comic Arts Fest. I didn't get any photos this time, because I forgot my camera and plus it was crayzee. But I hear tell there are some here!
There is a comic on Mark's Livejournal, by Mark, about our first few hours in Toronto (I'm in it, too). We stayed in three separate hostels over the course of our weekend, so the next few pages of this comic are going to ROCK.
We nomad-ed around town with Erika Moen, who's comic this week ALSO features me! She discusses the quirks of John's and my recent trip to visit her and do the Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland, OR. The air mattress and creepily empty strip-club I didn't mind so much as the hungover bike odyssey or the lady who apparently wanted me to pee in front of her...
Read alllll about it at Erika's Dar Comic Page!
TCAF was great fun. I was so delighted to meet a great bunch of people who kindly came up to introduce themselves or say hi! One such awesome encounter gifted me with an original comic, starring MEEE. Gawd, the path to my heart is so easily trodden. Beto Gomez gave me this amazing gem, scanned and posted without permission (sorry and thank you, Beto!) HERE.
Now I'm in Vermont at the Center for Cartoon Studies, awaiting my graduation on Saturday. I passed my thesis review (yay!) and I'll be walking across the stage to pick up my MASTERS of FINE ARTS. Hurray!
Mark and I have spent much of the week in Vermont sleeping off the 18 hours in the car, combined with the hectic convention weekend previous. We have another 3 hour drive in store after the ceremony, to attend the Maine Comic Arts Festival on Sunday, followed by 18 hours back to the flatlands of the cornfed. Phew!
We've also been doodling a whole bunch while we rest up.
These first few are from my entries to a traveling sketchbook.
This one stemmed from a discussion I had with Mark about what our super-villain would be.
I thought, "What do I love to do that is terrible?"
The rest of these are just dewdles, complete with cryptic little notes to myself.
Funnel hat on Foie Grasist = WIN!!!
