Odori Park on Woody After Hours, part 1
By an interesting confluence of happenstance, I and Odori Park are all over the Web today. Covering the bases:

  • Colin & Arisa have been invited to “appear” on Woody After Hours, the webcomic late-night talk show by Ben Carter and Paul Westover, to teach Woody rude Japanese phrases! I started talking with Paul & Ben about the idea a couple months ago, and it’s all kinds of fun to see our characters finally interacting. Check out the first strip of the storyline here:
  • Tony Esteves, creator of Legendary Woodsman, surprised me earlier this week to ask if I wouldn’t mind him drawing up one of my characters for his “Fan Fun Friday” feature (to which I, naturally, said heck, yeah). Little did I expect… Super Sentai Colin!
  • This past weekend, I joined a trek to the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, where I ran into some webcomicking friends, like Paul Westover and Meghan Murphy of Kawaii Not. A fun surprise was seeing Adriana Blake of Fall On Me behind a booth. We took a photo to commemorate. (And next show I attend, I’m going to read the guest list more carefully.) :)

True to form, I’m a bit slow on these notices, but there’s still a little time left for both, so please consider participating in the following:

My buddy Tony Esteves, creator of the much fun Legendary Woodsman, is offering a print of a special Bean and Bobert comic strip to support the charity Steps for Life. Sales of the print go to the charity, which supports and advocates for victims of workplace tragedy. Having worked in an office that was once evacuated under threat of a gunman on-site, not to mention just understanding the importance of keeping your day job from burning you out, I can certainly get behind this drive. In addition, Tony will be walking in the Steps for Life walk event tomorrow, Saturday, May 5th, and is also taking traditional donations for that. If you’d like to help him, please make your purchases or donations soon! (click here)

Second order of business: Last week (I think… time evades me…) I learned that Spike from Julie’s Gems is running a raffle leading up to World Book Night 2012. If you pop over to his site here, you can get the email address to make your entry, which puts you in the running for a copy of Good Omens, by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman (!), as well as a copy of The Time-Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger. The deadline for entries is this Sunday, May 6th, so get on the stick if you like free good books!
