I spent the afternoon doing a major revamp of the website. If you notice anything off, please let me know.

In other news:

  • The Seattle Art Museum invited me to lead a “My Favorite Things” tour of their “Graphic Masters” exhibit last week. I had a blast sharing with the group who joined me what excites me about Rembrandt’s “Saint Jerome Beside a Pollard Willow,” Hogarth’s Harlot’s Progress series, and Plate 32 from Goya’s Los Caprichos. I also had some choice words for Picasso.
  • The 7th annual Comics and Medicine conference happened this past weekend in Dundee, Scotland. From what I can tell, it was another incredible meeting. Needless to say, I was devastated not to be there and am eager to check out the conference archive as soon as it goes online.
  • Chin up: I am excited to announce that, together with Meredith Li-Vollmer (King County Public Health) and Jose Alaniz (University of Washington, Disability Studies Program), I will be welcoming the 8th annual Comics and Medicine conference here to Seattle. The 2017 conference will take place June 15th-17th. Titled “Access Points,” the theme will broadly address issues related to the intersections between comics and health access/accessibility. Announcements about guest speakers etc. forthcoming.
  • Exhibitor applications for Short Run Seattle close on the 15th. Get your applications in if you haven’t already!

Thanks for stopping in. Hopefully more soon. With love, me.
