It's a Sketchy New Year!

In case you thought my silence meant that nothing much was happening in Sketch World, behold the amazing happenings so far in this 12-day-old new year!

Our first foray into television was followed by a feature in the New York Press, a feature in the Los Angeles Times, and two great pieces written by John and Molly on LargeHeartedBoy's BookNotes blog. Molly and I even got our picture in Publisher's Weekly!

And the hits just keep on rolling. . . . Look for Dr. Sketchy's in the March issue of VENUS ZINE, an upcoming review in Time Out New York, and Molly just did a photo shoot with the Associated Press for an Arts feature.

I am also quite pleased to announce that Last Gasp has agreed to carry Dr. Sketchy's and will have it listed very soon in their catalog (which I encourage you to check out because Last Gasp kicks ass!). If you can't wait that long to get a copy of Dr. Sketchy's, the book is now available at, Powell's Books, and as always at

As if that weren't enough, Molly is also going on TOUR this spring. In February she'll be in Boston MA, Washington DC, Richmond VA, Greensboro NC, Norfolk VA, Durham NC, and Baltimore MD. Whew! In March she hits the road again (or the skies, actually) to Portland OR, San Francisco CA, Los Angeles CA, Las Vegas NV, and Phoenix AZ. For dates, times, and locations, see her tour schedule here.
And lastly, in an un-Sketchy-related piece of bad news, many of you are probably unaware that major cornerstone of independent publishing called AMS (the owner of book distributor Publishers Group West) filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy recently leaving a number of small, independent presses hurting, including some good friends of our at Soft Skull Press. Soft Skull was a huge help and inspiration in making Sepulculture possible, so please support our fellow Brooklyn indie press. Soft Skull's books are incredible, and I invite you all to order some from their site right now. I personally recommend Sam Brown's Amazing Rain. You won't regret it!
Okay friends, until next time, be well.

I thought I wasn't going to like what you had to say. You lied to me, Scott.
