New Momentum

Whether it’s the whitish-grey curtain (sky) hanging over our frozen city, the medical issues I’ve been grappling with recently, or the latest work aspirations I’ve thrown into the mix…I’ve been feeling pretty darn reflective and melancholy lately.

I don’t think this is a bad thing. Notice I didn’t say “malaise” or “depressed.” I’m actually oddly excited and enthused on top of everything. Let me provide some context.

In-house editors

Recently, a reader asked me how my family reacts to my strips and their opinion of my work. I get asked this a lot.

Here it is in a nutshell:

I run every strip by my family. My husband helps me select the strongest ideas. He also offers suggestions sometimes.

My kids read them, too. They’ll only offer feedback if there’s something they strongly object to. Also, my younger daughter has a good eye — she’s actually caught quite a few mistakes that have slipped by us.

I’m very excited to be part of the Cleveland Mandel JCC Jewish Book Festival’s “Local Author Day” on Sunday, November 16, 2:00 pm -3:30 pm. You can purchase tickets here. I’ll speak briefly about my two latest books, “The Pajama Diaries: Having It All” and “The Pajama Diaries: Bat-Zilla.” There will also be a book signing following the panel (psst, great gifts for the holidays!)

Kenosha Festival of Cartooning

I’ll be presenting next Saturday, September 27, at the Kenosha Festival of Cartooning. If you live near the area (yes, I’m also talking to you, Chicagoans), come join us! There’s an incredible lineup of speakers among other great events, like a live charity auction, comics exhibits, receptions, panel discussions, and kids’ cartooning classes. Best of all, the events are FREE. Check it out here.

Benched, Part 2

It pains me — really pains me — that I can’t publish this rough strip. But I pretty much knew it as soon as I wrote it.

As my editor and I talked, he pointed out that the first two panels are fine. Same-sex parenting can (and should, in my opinion) be discussed. It’s the third panel that kind of reduces the whole thing. I get that.

A cupple of things…

Two exciting events to throw your way: The first is the upcoming Kenosha Festival of Cartooning, Sept 25-27, 2014. There will be a lineup of great speakers, including yours truly. There is also a wonderful gallery exhibit happening now (see below):

Benched.

So not every strip I write makes it to print. Each month, I write for about a week straight, with the goal of accumulating 45-50 strips. I then edit carefully, narrowing them down to the 30 or so funniest or most pertinent ones. These get published for a particular month (for example, I just wrote my December comics).
