A trip to San Diego and a sweltering summer
A few weeks ago was San Diego Comic Con and Mike and I made the journey north to attend the show.
This is the two of us waiting in a massive line at the Tijuana International Border. It took 2 hours to get across (which is the longest we've ever waited.)
Mike spent the entire show working at the Forbidden Futures booth with a brief hour or two off.
Probably the best part of going to SDCC was seeing people. Socializing can be challenging in Mexico and suddenly being around SO many people who understand every word I'm saying was thrilling and maybe a little terrifying...
Since we've been home we've been trying to get back to work and survive the heat and humidity. It's been probably the hottest summer I've ever experienced here. Just a few minutes outside and I'm covered in sweat. Today I took three showers to wash it all off and, yes, it's a cold shower every time!
This week a wonderful children's book I had the honor of illustrating was just released. This is The Adventures of Goodie and Kookie Sugar-Ant by RH Bynum:
Anywhere you see a patch of grass, a world exists within it. The “Forest of Obstruction” as it has been named, is a part of that world, and it is where you may see “Giants”. Excitement and danger await the Sugar-Ant brothers while they are in the “Outside World” beyond the ant colony. There are lots of questions and so much to learn. Will the big brother step up and teach his little brother everything he needs to know to survive in their world?
Anyway it seems to be hot everywhere right now, so be sure to stay cool where ever you are!
