Cartoonist Studio Shortlist

Just found this: "A Fire Story" had been shortlisted for the 2018 Cartoonist Studio Prize for Best Webcomic by Slate Book Review and the Center for Cartoon Studies. That's a real nice honor. I appreciate it! Winners to be announced March 30.

UPDATE: Didn't win. But still a nice recognition. Congratulations to Michael De Forge for "Leaving Richard's Valley," which I look forward to reading.

On Display at the NLM

The National Library of Medicine opened its Graphic Medicine art exhibition today with a panel featuring three smart people I know and like, Michael Green, MK Czerwiec and Ellen Forney. I just learned the panel was webcasted and am sorry I missed it, but it sounds like it was recorded for later viewing.

I found this Twitter feed photo of the event by Samarth Swarup, who I hope won't mind me borrowing it because it shows my stuff. I believe this is one of three pages of original art from Mom's Cancer still in existence; the other two are in friends' good hands. I will get it back someday when the museum is done with it, and my page and I will toast its survival.
