Anyway this in from Bob Heer @ Gunk'l'dunk:
“A while ago I went to Scott McCloud's local signing for MAKING COMICS,
and he mentioned you to the guy two places ahead of me, so I mentioned that the
reason I brought ZOT #31 for him to sign was that it was my first issue, bought
after seeing the book recommending in BEANWORLD and Scott's intro to the first
book, and how much I loved the little Beanworld reference he had in that
issue. I also asked him if he knew if you were still cartooning, and if he
could talk you into publishing again, and he mentioned your interest in Duchamp
and how Duchamp surprised everyone by suddenly having a major work done in
secret long after everyone thought he was out of the art game.”
Scott McCloud is a very wise fellow indeed. The McCloud Family is going to roll into Phoenix this Friday and I unfortunately will not be in town that day. So I will have to see them at Comicon or SD07 as the trendy bloggers seem to be calling it nowadays.
Now, it is true, I am working. I never actually STOPPED working…I just got very, very, verrrrry slow. Glacially slow. But never stopped.
Well, that was then and this is now.
As far as Scott’s mention of Duchamp, well, all I have to say is…this!
One of these days I'll get around to talking about "What Marcel Duchamp means to the Beanworld." But not today.
