three things

April 27th, 2007

1. My visit to Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh has been rescheduled for this Monday, the 30th, at 7pm.

2. Fun Home was nominated for two Eisner awards. One in the “Best Graphic Album-New” category, and one in “Best Reality-Based Work” (Ellen Forney’s I Love Led Zeppelin and Brian Fies’ Mom’s Cancer are also up for this). The Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards are big deal in the comics world, so I’m very happy about that.

3. I know there’s something deeply wrong about putting my amateurish home movies up on the blog, and I’m sure I’ll regret it one day, but just now I can’t seem to stop myself. I’m thinking that if I just give in to the urge, I’ll get it out of my system. Just like how I stopped posting PhotoBooth pictures of myself. (Well, slowed down, anyway) So here’s a short film I shot of the wildflowers in my woods this afternoon. After I made it I learned that the kind of trillium pictured is trillium erectum, and now the whole movie kind of looks like wildflower porn to me.
