Inspired by Ryan North’s To Be Or Not To Be, the chose-your-adventure-style version of Hamlet (which I was lucky enough to do some illustrations for), I wrote my own Waiting For Godot inspired game story: The Further Adventures of Didi and Gogo. Go read/play it now for maximum fun times.
And even more intense, I have spent the last several months programming, doing the art, music, and story for a VIDEO GAME!!! It’s based on the book as well. So when you’re done with the text adventure, play The Further Adventures of Didi and Gogo, the video game!
The book launch weekend for my new OWLKids book, DRAW OUT THE STORY: Ten Secrets to Creating Your Own Comics was fantastic. Little Island Comics hosted a formal launch and comic workshop and the following day I was at Word on the Street Toronto, doing a talk on character design with my pal Scott Chantler, and then signing and sketching at the OwlKids booth. We sold out of books at WOTS! Woot! My wife was awesome enough to make the dough for these shortbread cookies so I could decorate them. Big thanks to Andrew at Little Island, the marketing team at Owl, and Liz and everyone at WOTS!
