Frank and Ollie were right.
And I have a new blog on Substack. Why? Well, I might want to sell something there eventually. You can never tell.
I was interviewed for this podcast and they asked excellent questions. Look at some of the others, too, it's a very interesting site.
The picture of me was my official Disney portrait, taken in 1995. If you look carefully at my shirt, you will see little Mickey Mouse hands and feet and pants in the pattern. Subtle.
If you aren't visiting the Animation World Network site regularly, you should be. It covers 'worldwide' animation, not just the usual suspects. There are articles, reviews, and blogs...and today, there's this: along with a review.
Writing a book or making a film and showing either one publicly means you listen to people who say its mom wrote it funny. (I left out the ugly part, and I want people to think I wrote it funny.)
So, we'll see what develops.
The book launched on October 1, and since it is the weekend, some things only will appear on Monday.
The first: Shipping. This is already happening, or so I am told. Good. The second: Ebooks. Now, I know very little about the latter object, but they are the modern way to read a book. So, they are available. They are also listed at two different prices on ebook sites. This is a mistake. The higher price is the correct one. Just so you know. Ah, Mondays.
There are fifty 'diary entries' and four Pandemic Postage Stamps in How I Finally Got to Live A Cat's Life. I drew more than fifty cartoons during the past two years. Many more. There wasn't a whole lot else to do, and not all the scary stories involved viruses.
I started drawing cartoons in the winter of 2020 to cheer up family and friends as we adjusted to the new 'normal' in 2020 and 2021.
The cats took over the book because they insisted on helping. And they cheered everyone up.
A neighbor asked for printouts of each cartoon and assembled them in a sort of book. I saw that there was actual continuity, and the neighbor loved the cartoons, so I decided that maybe this could actually become a book.
But no publisher wanted it. So I did it myself. 'Little Red Hen Editions' is a good joke if you know the story.
HOW I FINALLY GOT TO LIVE A CAT'S LIFE is available from online booksellers worldwide. Ebooks will be available on google play and apple in the near future.
And there's my new website.
