What amazes me about your one year of daily blogging is that almost all of it was pretty goddamned good stuff.

Congratulations!

Well cheers Eddie, I enjoyed it, even if I did stop responding more recently. Purely a bookshop-xmas-comes-early-and-busy thing, nothing else, I've read religiously.

Dear god, is that really a year? Every single day?

Oh look, post 5 was "not a graphic novel, percy". I may not achieve lasting fame for anything else, but that's a start.

And it has been eleven months since my little Eddie Campbell original got lost in the post.

You know, for a blog, i really shouldn't have just lost fifteen minutes going back and re-reading the early stuff. This internet shit is supposed to be ephemeral, dammit. I'm only not going all the way through because I have to work tomorrow.

Best, Marcus

Thank you Eddie for a very nice year with a lot of interesting topics! Things that come to mind fast are the insides to court sketchings, deepening understandings about From Hell, Bacchus layouts, company insides, when you registred yourself as a one-man company to make that Batman thing...and much more.
Hope to hear from you soon again!

I can't believe it's been a year already. It's been great to have something I could rely on to provoke and challenge for that long.

Cheers,

Cheers, Mr. Campbell, sir. Have a guest appearance in a strip by an utter nobody: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mnemonic_boxes/2068126504/

And thanks for your persistence, online & in print. It's been one hell of an education, and it ain't even over yet...

Greetings Mr. Campbell:

I travelled to the UK for the first time this past summer, and it's a beautiful country.

I never quite understood the root of Scottish-English tensions, but after taking the Westminster Abbey and Tower of London tours and getting a full glimpse of everything the English have thieved from their neighbors (not the least of which being the Coronation Stone) I understand why the Limeys are not well loved.

That aside, it's encouraging to see that the comic arts are thriving for their own sake over seas. The fad here in the States is to develop comics only as a vehicle for developing films, and while that can be a boon for creators it can also lead to a lot of dumb, loud uninspired comic art that's well... Only destined to be an action film.

Kudos to you and the phenomenal body of work you've developed over the years. It's wonderful to know that literary comic art still has a place in the world.

Best,
Andy Tafelski

A question. Did you go off-line because you recognized that it's difficult to reconcile your image as a serious literary "author" with that of a noise making blogger?

The day I was mistaken for an author:

somebody explain to me why the picture at top has a turquoise shirt in the small version but when you click through to the larger one it becomes yellow.

Raymond Briggs letters the whole book first:

"First you write it, then you design the typography and lay out the hand lettering. This gives you some idea of the space you are going to need, so you can then design the format, the pagination and the grid. This will show what space is left for illustrations. You light-box off the grid on to 50 or more sheets of watercolour paper and paste up the type and lettering. This gives you the layout. Now you can start."

Phew.

When I click on the picture I don't even get a yellow shirt but just "[having+a+rest3.jpg]", which I think is my browser's doing, most likely.
