Despite the nuclear first strike launched at my career by the corporate honchos at VVM — I kid, of course! I’m sure the economy will rebound any moment now and they’ll once again be able to afford the literally tens of dollars it costs to run my work! — at any rate, despite the late unpleasantness, I am momentarily swamped with deadlines. The usual weekly cartoon, of course, but also a couple of other longer-term projects about which I’ll be able to announce at least a little bit of good news sometime soon. But the point is, everything’s happening at once, so for the time being, this blog will continue to suck. My apologies for that, and for any unanswered email.
