January 15, 2009 Launches

Today is the “launch” of! Garge (as his fellow cartoonist TAD used to “call” him) is my favorite cartoonist! Putting together this “tribute” is a dream come true. What you “see” on the site is just the beginning. There will be “lots more” rare art and “ephemera”, much of it never before seen, as we move ahead. I want this to be very interactive, so “please” let us know of cool stuff from “your” collection or things you’ve spotted, your ideas for the “site” (and products, too) and any thoughts you might have. BTW speaking of “product” please order your Krazy Kat goodies through (we even have some “exclusives”). It will “help” in a small way to defray the expenses of doing this and enable us to “do” more. And tell your friends, “blog” readers and the “world” about this Kat konclave!

George Herriman and Michael Tisserand

tisserandI enjoyed meeting Michael Tisserand at the last MoCCA fest. The talented Michael told me that he’s writing a biography of George Herriman, which is contracted with HarperCollins. The New Orleans-based author is “humbly seeking advice, suggestions, counsel or conversation on this audacious project.”

Tisserand reports that “the book begins with the extended Herriman clan in New Orleans and then follows George Herriman’s immediate family to California, and continues on with George Herriman’s amazing life and career, as well as examines his great contribution to comics, art, literature and the world.”

Tisserand says he can be reached “most easily at his email — michaeltisserand [at] yahoo [dot] com.” Tisserand goes on to say, “I’ll appreciate any ideas and leads, and I’d also be very happy to answer any general questions about the direction and scope of my work.”
