I've been calming my nerves by drawing to the audio-recording of "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. It's a gruesome story but somehow comforting - in the way that everything has been stripped down to what is essential...simplified into black and white, all choices based on instinct and faith.
Just got back from a cartoonists' group that meets in Berkeley. I've lived here three years and had no idea, but thanks to my ACA bud Dave Kiersh and his friend Jen Tong, I met some good local people and got good comics feedback. Looking forward to more. Thanks Dave!
