Friday Odds and Ends
Here’s a new comic from the relentlessly strange and consistently intriguing cartoonist Brett Harder. I’ve mentioned Harder on Twitter a few times, but not here on the blog, so time to rectify that.
Returned from New York last night, following yesterday’s Doodle 4 Google award ceremony. The kids wore t-shirts with their doodles on them and were all super-adorable (and a bit nervous!).
Big congratulations to grand prize winner Matteo Lopez, his three winnners circle companions, as well as all 40 finalists. You were awesome.
The festivities were MC’d by the legendary Marissa Mayer along with doodle masters Ryan Germick, Sophia Foster-Dimino, Mike Dutton (who did the great final art for the Eisner doodle), and Jennifer Hom. I also had fun talking to fellow judges Jeff (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) Kinney, figure skater Evan Lysacek, and the Whitney Museum’s Kathryn Potts.
And yes, the food at Google’s new New York offices is just as good as Mountain View’s.
Regarding Tuesday’s post, You can read more about (and of) The Influencing Machine on Slate today. Check it out.
Finally, regarding Monday’s post, yes there is a comics writer named Stuart Moore, but no, this is a different guy.
Have a great weekend!
Wow, what an honor! Thanks Scott!! Honestly, I never realize how bizarre my stuff is until someone points it out.
