This week we meet our three celebrity judges who will decide who is this week’s winner, and who will be eliminated on the 24 Hour Comic Reality TV show hosted by Eisner-award nominated graphic novelist and perspective expert David Chelsea:

IN THE STUDIO: Raster Vs. Vector!

podcastcover-small

Another episode of the ongoing podcast I do with Jacob Mercy just dropped on iTunes. In this installment, Jacob and I talk shop about the virtues and drawbacks of several computer drawing programs, most notably Adobe Illustrator and Clip Studio Paint (the software mysteriously formerly known as Manga Studio). We also get a preview of David’s new instructional book PERSPECTIVE IN ACTION, a discussion of cartoon dogs and what makes them funny, and some incidental chatter about Winsor McCay’s possible influence on Peter Max. Geek out!!

Rebecca Talks Socks

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-2-47-29-pm

In case you missed Tuesday’s edition of PORTLAND TODAY, here is a link for you to watch Rebecca talking with the hosts Drew Carney and Cathy Marshall, and Sock It To Me Design Director Alicia Reese about her third-place-winning sock design for the Design-A-Sock Contest from last year, by way of promoting this year’s contest. Rebecca is at the right in the photograph above, wearing her own pair of Penguin-festooned socks. Unfortunately, you’ll miss all the ads and the live reports from Powell’s Bookstore interviewing people standing in line to have their picture taken with Bruce Springsteen, but you can’t have everything!

By the way, you can order Rebecca’s socks by using the link below. If enough people use my website link, I get a payment which will benefit the Feed And Clothe Ben And Rebecca Fund!

In The Studio With Jacob And David

Ever wish you could eavesdrop on the chatter between me and my sometime assistant Jacob Mercy? Well the first of what promises to be many episode of our new tandem podcast is up on iTunes. The talk ranges from Tim’s Vermeer to Milo Manara to Thomas Eakins’s habit of tracing from photographs, but the overall stress is on comics. Lend an ear!

Show them off to your friends and family- you are sure to have the coolest slidy penguin socks around.

Scrambled egg,
My baby used to cook me scrambled egg,
But now it seems that I’ve come down a peg,
Oh, how I miss her scrambled egg…..
