Ben Katchor and Seth

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

Today, my friend Eric and I made the quick journey to Columbus, Ohio for the 2nd annual Cartoon Crossroads Columbus! It was a great show and we started off the day by sitting in on a conversation between cartoonists Seth and Ben Katchor, hosted by Tom Spurgeon (swell folk all)! While they talked, I sketched them.

Even though Seth said a lot of interesting things, I failed to jot down any quotes from him…so here’s a sketch I did of his sweet kicks!

If you didn’t get the chance to attend this year’s show I highly recommend checking it out next year.

C-3P0

There’s a Star Wars comic book that came out recently chronicling the adventure C3P0 went through to end up with that red arm he’s sporting in Force Awakens.

Although I have yet to read the comic, I’m pretty sure the story has nothing to do with him riding around on a My Little Pony, but I drew this image for my friend Reagan (age 4 and a half) to color as she’s a big fan of both properties.

This morning I hung out at DATV while my friend Matt Brassfield did some video editing for his horror show Baron Von Porkchop’s Terrifying Tales of the Macabre!

Matt talks about werewolves almost every time I see him… which is awesome.

If you’d like to read his thoughts on all manner of subject (including werewolves) visit his fantastic blog Rotten Ink.

This is a sketch I did today at We Care Arts. Homer was a magnificent painter who worked with watercolor and oil and even did some printmaking in his time. What a fellow!

This past weekend was one of the best weekends I’ve had in decades. I spent it at Camp Joy volunteering as a buddy for grieving teens through Hospice of Dayton’s Camp Pathways program and it couldn’t have been better!

I met so many awesome people this weekend. Even though some had lost someone very close to them as recently as two weeks ago all were eager to make connections and learn to cope with their particular loss.

It rained most of the time we were there but it didn’t put a damper on anyone’s attitude. Fun was had by all!

We also all got the chance to open up about our losses. Some of you may know that it’s coming up on exactly one year since I lost a good friend and it helped me to be with others who can empathize.

Above are some of the sketches I was able to do between our numerous activities (which included swimming, canoeing, fishing, high ropes walking, sketch comedy, various indoor sports, eating, walking, singing, hugging and crying).

If you or anyone you know have a grieving child (from ages 7 through 17) that you think could benefit from some outside support among those who may be able to relate to their situation, I highly recommend this amazing program!

I’m already looking forward to volunteering there next year.
