Speed Racer love!

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

I finally saw Speed Racer (IMAX) and I loved it! I am sad about all the bad reviews – those haters! Please see it if you get the chance, it needs to be experienced on the big screen. I loved the colors, campiness, and giant heads floating back and forth across the screen. Giant heads! Plus cute guys and girls ^_^ The whole movie was delicious eye candy. I also loved the car racing, which I wasn’t expecting to like. Swoon!

The City Sweet Tooth!

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

I’m thrilled to announce my latest project – The City Sweet Tooth!
It’s a column in comic strip format that will feature profiles of New York City’s finest pastry shops, bakeries, cafes, and unique treats. One of the best things about living in New York is the availability of one of a kind (sometimes legendary) desserts and snacks. The column will cover places both new and old, famous and less well-known. Those who know me know I love New York and I love sweets, so this a dream project!
The strip is on The L Magazine’s website and a shorter version is in today’s issue of the print magazine available for free all over New York City. Just look for the little orange boxes with a letter L on on it, it’s “The Free Issue”.

Update : Madeleine Patisserie has added a lot of new seating and table service!

I’ve been remiss in posting about this and it’s last minute, but May 14 is the cut-off for Lulu Award nominations!

Anyone can nominate just go here:

gURL Comix is a good contender for Lulu of the Year, they post loads of comics by female cartoonists including myself (2007 Lulu of the Year ^_^) and last year’s Kim Yale award winner Rachel Nabors.

Manic D Press is also a good choice, as is editor Jennifer Joseph for “Women of Distinction”. There are a lot of awesome ladies out there deserving of your votes!
