Cornish Crest



Heyyyy blog,

I won that t-shirt contest and they'll be printing whatever it is that they're printing over the break. I'm not sure what they're going to do with it yet.

Two of Cory's designs won too. One them is going to be applied to sweatpants, which is... interesting.

The moral of the story is that sometimes you put yourself out there and it's a good thing. I still have to pick up my winnings from Student Affairs. Blog, I am excited about next semester and seeing dudes wearing a shirt I designed. That's kind of what it's all about.

My main inspiration was John Porcellino's King-Cat shirt. I'm patiently waiting for my own, but he was out of small and he was on tour and hasn't gotten around to printing some smalls or something. They're printed on organic cotton, which makes me happy. John P is a beautiful dude and pretty much my hero. You should get a shirt while you can and celebrate 20 years of comics.



I also recently got a King-Cat subscription and I love it. Getting mail is one of my favorite things and the comics are such a perfect length. If you don't know John P, I have some books that I would be more than happy to let you borrow. Diary of a Mosquito Abatement Man, Perfect Example, King-Cat Classix, Map of My Heart. And then issue #70 of King-Cat.

Mare: (a) Congratulations on the T-shirt contest! I wish I went to Cornish so I could order one (b) I realized that for a long while I had been linking to onebrother.blogspot.com - was that ever your blog name? T/F? Because it is now a 10-year-old Spanish boy: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_QZXklC2RiR0/SysFywSevdI/AAAAAAAAAAU/f6eB3oFhd3I/s320/IMG_0119.JPG

Mind boggling!

Haha. I used to be onebrother but then I changed it so it'd be consistent with most of the rest of my web presence.

I'm surprised at how quickly that username got snatched up. The same thing happened to my old twitter account: ghostpoop. But I feel like that's more understandable.

Anyway, thanks!
