Super Dinosaur's Barber Spaceape

I was having fun using GooleMaps to doodle the French landscapes - granted only the sights that are roadside. I was pleased with how the car pictures came out - drawing vehicles has never been a strong point of mine.

I'm a little embarrassed that I'm so far behind in these updates on the blog - I mean this page was published back in June, 2011 - almost a half year ago. No matter - check out the link while you've got the chance, there's lots to check out there - read more at Stretch My Legs!

Graphic Novel News
In the graphic novel news, find out what link Garfield has to Bonnie Barber, the source of inspiration of Super Dinosaur #1 and read how hipper people than I are using graphic novels to put pictures to their music.

Bonnie Barber
This summer, on July 14, the public library in Carrollton, Texas, will host an innovative 39 Clues-themed tween event. They’ll also incorporate the audience’s love for graphic novels and manga into the daylong event, which is being coordinated by youth services librarian Bonnie Barber. We talked to Bonnie about her love of comics. (For more information on the upcoming event, check the library’s website here.)

Kode9 & The Spaceape: Under the Black Sun
Bram E. Gieben

The videos from Memories were very impressive – who are you working with on the visual art and videos for Black Sun and why did you choose them?
Kode9: We developed a mini graphic novel with a friend of mine Raz Mesinai [also a musician under the name Badawi] which tells the back story of the album in picture form. And we worked with Manny Optigram of Citinite, who does most of the Hyperdub artwork, to do the cover.
