More Randomnessitude and Query

Another day tagging along with the Adventures in Nature camp at the Natural History Museum. This week my son is in the “Prehistoric Pals” class and we went up to the mysterious “staff only” fourth floor where the Paleontology lab is. Pretty cool stuff up there. We had a look at how they clean fossils & whatnot. Currently, most of the team is off in Montana digging up a T-Rex. How cool is that? It’s fun to see this stuff through the eyes of the kids.

In comics news, I am almost finished thumbnailing my Tokyopop project. Looks like it is shaping up to be about 170 pages long. Once this stage is done, I finally will move ahead with drawing the actual book! I should be able to post some preview pages pretty soon. I think I’m supposed to wait until they ‘officially’ announce the book before I start showing stuff or giving away details. The book is on the schedule for next July, in case anyone is wondering.

I guess that's all. Not the most interesting blog post, to be sure. I end with one question:

HOW COME EVERYONE IS MOVING TO PORTLAND? Every time I turn around, someone else I know is moving there. I'm afraid that I'll need to follow if this keeps up. I once was very seriously planning on moving to Seattle, but then I met the woman who is now my wife. That changed things. Now, we have a family and some important roots that would make it difficult to make such a move, but I can't help but wonder what the appeal of Portland is. Never been there, myself. Perhaps I ought to take a trip. Meanwhile, can anyone out there shed some light?

I've been to Portland. It's a beautiful, well-managed, progressive city with a vibrant comics scene. I've thought about moving there as well. For me the appeal is the thought that there might be peoplen there to hang out with who are into the same sort of things that I am into. There's nobody here in Boise, that's fer sure!

My friend Kieron says it is extremely liveable and that there is a " huge art, and specifically comic art, community there."

Who knew?

Anyone else want to drop some knowledge my way?

"On NPR on Marketplace, they talked to United Van Lines, who said the most popular state to move to is...

...Oregon."


I guess that PROVES it.
