Marv Newland is the Best!

Just got this letter from my old teacher from Vancouver Film School, the infamous Marv Newland. I can't tell you how important this man was to me as a fledgling cartoonist. I sent him some books and a query about me visiting my old school to do a comics talk. I love his drawing of Erika and Neptune.

Marv has some many amazing films, most recently, from the NFB. CMYK looks amazing. He's probably most famous for Bambi Meets Godzilla and Tales from the Far Side. If you're never seen Black Hula, you are in for a treat...

Also he's got a series of postcard experiments going on over on his tumblr, Marv Cards.

In his letter, the foul language he's referring to comes from Big Plans, a book which has not been published in French. Neptune has, but here's to hoping. Maybe the collection will. Yes, there is a collection happening. Very, very soon. It's at the printer in Quebec as we speak. More info. coming soon.

I just made this display for the super friendly Portland toy store, Polliwog. They also have a nice selection of great modern and classic children's books. Check them out.

Mr. Wolf page 44

If you want to follow my Mr. Wolf comics in one easy place check out Mr. Wolf. Help spread the word if you like it, and especially if you're a teacher. I'd like to continue the comic and will but it'll help me put them out faster if people want them.
