Convention season is here (already?) again. The first event that started
my convention schedule was Lutefisk Sushi, an art show showcasing the
finest cartoonists around Minnesota. I have 2 original pieces of Uptown
Girl art for sale at the gallery.
Next up is this weekend, with APE! APE is Alternative Press Expo, which
takes place in San Francisco.
And of course, at the end of April, we have Microcon, at the State
Fairgrounds in St. Paul.

‘Uptown Girl-the animated series' is really taking off! I got to see the
first pieces of animation last week, and it was just amazing to see
Rocketman dance and Uptown Girl move. I can't wait to show this off.
Brian Bastian ( www.tommychicago.com ) is hard at work writing fresh stories
for the series.
The animated series is being developed by Monkey with a Moustache
( http://www.monkeytheater.com/ ).
Ok, that's all for now. Thank you all for your support and for reading
