So, yeah, HOLY SHIT, we won BEST NEW SERIES at the Eisner Awards Friday night. The Eisner committee had to engrave the words “SEX CRIMINALS” on two of their trophies. I have hidden it in my home for when they realize what they’ve done and come to take it away from me.

It was a fantastic, nerve-wracking night, and jeez louise ain’t Matt Fraction the best? If it weren’t for him and his brilliant brain I’d be doodling dicks on cocktail napkins for spare change. I love that guy and can’t stress enough how great it’s been to work on this with him. He’s a great collaborator and a great friend and NO, YOU have something in your eye.

Oh, and issue seven is at the printers, printing away. No ads, all story and giant letters column. COMICS WOOOO

Love,
Chip

Don’t wait for permission to make something that’s interesting or amusing to you. Just do it now. Don’t wait. Find a story idea, start making it, give yourself a deadline, show it to people who’ll give you notes to make it better. Don’t wait till you’re older, or in some better job than you have now. Don’t wait for anything. Don’t wait till some magical story idea drops into your lap. That’s not where ideas come from. Go looking for an idea and it’ll show up. Begin now. Be a fucking soldier about it and be tough.

Quick tip for things to do immediately post-interview:

When I come out of an interview, I jot down the things I remember as being my favorite moments. For an hour-long interview usually it’s just four or five moments, but if out I’m reporting all day, I’ll spend over an hour at night typing out every favorite thing that happened. This is handier than you might think. Often this short list of favorite things will provide the backbone to the structure to my story.

Read through for the gear This American Life uses and its editing process.

This is really good advice, and worth keeping!

The Little Boxes: Brian Michael Bendis at TEDxCLE

http://www.tedxcle.com/brian-michael-bendis/

It seems that many of you over the weekend had a chance to watch this because my ask box is just filled with your lovely thoughts about this. and not one that you made fun of my wrinkled shirt.

 though I can’t answer all of them, I have read all of them, and I wholeheartedly thank you and for those of you who said you are getting off of your butt now and making some comics. I can’t wait to see what you do.

 create boldly. create honestly.
