Jeff is interviewed by Ed Piskor, Jim Rugg, & Jasen Lex for Episode 007 of Boing Boing’s, Tell Me Something I Don’t Know. It’s an interview podcast featuring artists, writers, filmmakers, and other creative people discussing their work, ideas, and the reality/business side of how they do what they do.
Ed Piskor recently spent a month in Columbus as the Graphic Novelist in Residence at the Thurber House, childhood home of James Thurber. Ed is the cartoonist who drew the comic, Wizzywig, and draws the Brain Rot/ Hip Hop Family Tree comic strip, soon to be collected by Fantagraphics Books.
The Cotsen Children’s Library is a very special library within the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections at Princeton University Library. Their international research collection of illustrated children’s books, manuscripts, original artwork, prints, and educational toys from the 15th century to the present day.
BiblioFiles is a podcast put out by the Cotsen Children’s Library.

Very busy here at Cartoon Books. Final adjustments are being made to the full color RASL hardcover. We received our proofs and review copies from the printer and if all goes well, we’ll ship the final document off this weekend!
The only thing I’ll say now, is that after much handwringing and trepidation , the rich, dark colors by Steve Hamaker takes to the paper beautifully! We will share some pages in June, so stay tuned.
For now, the above is a video shot during WonderCon with Kiel Phegley for CBR. We talk about RASL, reworking and repackaging BONE, and a bit about my next project: Tuki Save the Humans.
