See old gems like this:

I’ll be hanging around until early August. So if anyone in the Bay Area wants to hire me for speaking, now’s the time to save big!

  1. Just to say I saw Sita sings the Blues when it was shown by the Groovy Movie Picture House at Glastonbury Festival [UK] a couple of weeks ago. Very well received by those in the tent. Shame you were shafted by copyright for the film – bought the DVD it was that good!

  2. I’m afraid I’ll be in San Diego during the showings in San Francisco and Santa Cruz. Oh well, I’ve seen the film courtesy of the San Jose Public Library, which has it in stock. Loved it, as I loved your strip work. I’m sorry it looks like I will miss seeing you in person.

  3. After seeing your EFF cartoon, I was led to “Sita Sings the Blues”. I haven’t seen it yet; it is still downloading. But based on the EFF cartoon and what few of your strips I have seen, I am pretty sure I will enjoy it. And even in the unlikely case that I do not, I still applaud your attitude and your work.

    Even though your artistic style is very different in many ways, some of your strips (as in Nina’s Adventures, above) remind me a lot of R. Crumb. Take that in any way you wish, but I mean it as a compliment.

    Looking forward to Sita.

  4. Hi. Sorry to post off topic in your comments thread, but just figured I’d mention that I got booted off Facebook over that issue I messaged you about. And so it begins.

    Anyway, glad to hear of the upcoming SF show, I hope to be able to make it.
