My good friend Dave Kellett took this week off from the drawing duties on Sheldon to enjoy his newborn daughter. He was able to enlist some immensely talented cartoonists to create guest strips for him. And then I guess he needed to fill another day, so he got me.
This strip is notable for being the first strip I've inked with a brush in about four years. I did this because Dave draws Sheldon by hand, and I wanted to convey a sense of his style.
Unshelved was sponsored this week by Book Expo America 2008 in Los Angeles, where the world gathers to get a great read on the industry. BEA will be in New York next year and D.C. in 2010, so if you're from the West coast this is a great time to go.
And of course not only will Unshelved be there in force, but we've teamed up with BEA to give prizes to some of the lucky folks who register through our Unshelved@BEA page. We'll be drawing winners next week and then twice more before the show begin. Sign up now to have the most chances to win!
