After accidentally buying a house (don't ask, unless you like long-winded babbling), I was forced to put all of my projects on hiatus for about eight months. I always find it hard to get projects restarted after such a long lapse, so I was looking for something to kick-start my enthusiasm.

I'm now settled into my new basement studio, dubbed "The Speakeasy" by everyone who sees it. There is a full wet bar in the same room as my drafting table. Oh, and also, a very classy WC complete with a urinal. I have the best stereo setup I've had in ages, with my vinyl collection actually in the same room as my turntable. I could not be happier with my work space, but that is not enough to bring my enthusiasm back to the level it was pre-house.

That's where SPX comes in. A full weekend surrounded by very personable independent cartoonists and comics fans helped me remember that the world wasn't so bad after all. It certainly wasn't all leaky plumbing and busted chimney linings. There are stories to tell and people to tell them to. Sometimes when I am holed up in my isolated studio, I forget that. I would like to thank everybody I talked to at the Expo, you were all so enthusiastic about comics, and that enthusiasm is just the medicine I needed.

I will be restarting updates on Kitty's Cats on October 31st.

I will start uploading more of my vintage MadCurry comics as soon as possible.

I am a Philadelphia based cartoonist. I am currently story boarding a short film starring Anonimous Rat. I am also developing comics and animation series about cats living in a boarding house during the second great depression. Someday I may return to human characters, but right now it is all about Cats and rats!

Hi, Chris! I've been doing well, and am very busy getting back into comics. Just had a blast at SPX 2014. How have you been?

Hey Mad! I tracked you down here from the Funny Animals Comic Group on Facebook. The world needs more funny animal comics!

Thanks for the watch! I am busy trying to keep my funny animal comics going! I's a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. I think the world needs a lot of things that older style comics and cartoons have to offer. Not just in reprints of old stuff, but in new cartoons as well.

I wholeheartedly agree. I don't think funny animal comics will ever take over the industry, but it sure would be nice to at least have the option of reading some. The closest thing we have now is Usagi Yojimbo, My Little Pony, and it's even more of a stretch but Spongebob.
