Family in town!
Mike's cousins from Oregon came to Mazatlán! We actually had family visit us abroad (this really never happens for us so I'm a bit stunned.)
This is Alan and Debbie visiting from Portland, Oregon and yes, a terrible shot of me as I jumped in at the last second. They were staying at a resort nearby and we actually went over and spent some time there!
It was so strange for me to see so many English speaking, white people all in one place. They told us that a lot of these people never leave the resort, which is honestly so odd. I mean they came all the way to Mexico, why not rent a hotel room across town in their own city and hide out there?
Anyway Debbie and Alan toured the whole city and really loved Mazatlán. It was great to get to know them (and also use the hot tub as we haven't had hot water for several weeks and cold showers get old fast!)
Mike and I have been running a crowdfunding campaign for his new art book of compiled sketchbook art. I have been laying out the book over the last two weeks and it looks fantastic. The Kickstarter has fully funded and did really well for such a short term fundraiser and I'm really excited to get this book in my hands soon!
In other exciting news my new comic book has won first place in the Comics and Graphic novels category of the Firebird Book Awards for their quarterly competition! I'm so thrilled to get this honor!
