Portland is Yay!

I was just in Portland visiting my brother-in-law Craig. He is an author and artist who has written some amazing graphic novels. See the link to his blogĀ Doot Doot on the right.

Here are some pics:

Craig had a bunch of chick pamphlets in his bathroom which highly amused me, so he broke out his entire stash. We were feeling kinda goofy so we made this virgin-mary-like halo of chick pamphlets surrounding Craig.

Both Craig and his brother Jon (AKA Phil = his middle name) are artists and grew up drawing together. They resurrected some childhood comic heros for a new comeback adventure. You can see that on Craig's Blog.



Lastly, we went surfing - well Craig, Jon and our friend Dan did. It was too cold for me and Dan's wife; we went to a coffee shop and had delicious homemade curry carrot soup.

Sorry for the slow response! I'm afraid I have no tips for getting published as a comic artist. I am quite possibly the world's most untalented drawer.

I actually know little of Craig's success story; not much beyond he was born with a giant load of talent and a crazy work ethic. I suggest she email Craig through his blog for more advice- sorry I can't be of more help!

I checked out your daughters blog and her drawings are really great!
