And! Bonus: Farel Dalrymple was there! Didn’t even know that was happening. So I got a copy of The Wrenchies and this great sketch! Farel is real nice and we got to chat about trailer park boys and their excellent use of the word “greasy”

When asked to sketch in someone’s convention sketchbook, I sometimes like to make an addition to another artist’s earlier sketch.  This weekend at SPX I drew one of my FUNGUS dudes onto a sketch by Farel Dalrymple.

IGNATZ AWARDS HONOR INDIE CREATORS AND ALTERNATIVE WORK WITH 2014 NOMINATIONS
By Zainab Akhtrar
The Small Press Expo (SPX) announced the full list of nominees for the 2014 Ignatz Awards this week; with an aim to celebrate outstanding achievements in independent and alternative comics and cartooning, the awards are named after George Herriman’s brick-wielding mouse from his Krazy Kat comic strip, recognising exceptional work within the medium. Nominees are determined by a panel of cartoonists, this year comprised of Whit Taylor, Melissa Mendes, Thien Pham, Darryl Ayo, and Austin English, with votes cast only by attendees during SPX to decide the eventual winners.
This year’s slate of nominees is a pretty wide range of books and authors, which is an indicator of how encompassing the terms and area of independent and alternative comics have become. I’m especially pleased to see Sophie Goldstein recognised for the superb House of Women, Sophie Yanow for War of Streets and Houses, John Martz’s Destination X (which I thought had gone largely unnoticed upon release last September), Cathy G. Johnston in the promising new talent category, Jason Shiga for his online comic, Demon -- which is simply one of the best comics this year and you should be reading — and Farel Dalrymple‘s It Will All Hurt #2. This One Summer by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki makes the list, too — I expect that book to win a whole host of awards — along with Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoet, as it’s the only 2014 book about which I’ve heard unanimously good to excellent things across the board.
Regardless of what you think about awards, the one thing I love about them is that they always introduce me to a host of new artists and work, and I’d urge you to check out at least a couple of the excellent authors and books from the complete list of nominees.
COMPLETE IGNATZ NOMINEES LIST

We hope you’re right about Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki’s amazing This One Summer!

In honor of the big Replacements show on Saturday, my friend Pat Ganley and I whipped up this map of the Mats’ beginnings in Minneapolis in the early 1980s. Click to read the high-res version.
