My BF and I are in the 2nd of 14 days of self-isolation, so we can safely meet my brother (who is doing the same at his end) later this month.

So I get an order for Xmas cards via PayPal from someone I don't know, in my town. I tell them I can do contactless porch pickup and refund the shipping charge.

They say, just put it in the mail...I emailed that I won't be able to go to the PO till 12/15. I may have lost a sale.

I’m one of eight Boston-area cartoonists who have work in this biographical online exhibit put on by the Massachusetts Historical society. Don’t forget to click on all the links so you can see more information on the artists, as well as Nast’s life and art. masshist.org/features/thomasna

I've got a political cartoon in the "Contemporary Connection" section of "Who Counts? A Look at Voter Rights through Political Cartoons", an online exhibition of the Massachusetts Historical Society. masshist.org/features/whocount

This cartoon of mine (gag by Columbine Phoenix [sunspotdesigns.com/]) was published (in black and white) in this month's Funny Times.

Drowned Town Press now has an online store at itch.io. It includes not only all the current DTP publication list (except the Ling Master books, which are soon to come), but a number of comics that have gone out of print. See drownedtownpress.itch.io/ for the full library of PDFs. .io

Camberville peeps! This Thursday’s Cambridge Chronicle contains a recently-drawn, COVID-related editorial cartoon I illustrated, with gag by Roslindale-based Kenneth Hjulstrom.

The Chronicle is a broadhseet-sized weekly newspaper available for free at a number of outlets all over Cambridge, including supermarkets, drugstores, and convenience stores. A few sandwich shops as well, under normal circumstances, although they might only be open for takeout/delivery.

I neglected to post the link to this interview a few weeks back. My colleague from NYC, Michele Witchipoo, was visiting me during MICE 2019 last October. So now I'm on the same recording with power hitters Diane Noomin and Jaime Hernandez. podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/

The last works that Wayne and I produced together – his scripts, my art. All three of these are framed and ready to hang. Get in touch with me at art@ejbarnes.com if you want any of them; 50% the proceeds will go to Wayne’s estate (which, with the funerary expenses out of the way, is most likely to be one of several charities including a family homeless shelter in Williamsport, PA).

This 1992 comic was written by the late Wayne R. Smith, penciled by me, and inked (after rearranging the panels) by Myke Maldonado, another member of our APA. Myke has the originals; these are photos of copies.

Though DuoShade was popular with illustrators in the early ‘90s, it died out before Zip-a-Tone did, because it ages faster. As I recall, I LOVED penciling that filthy bathroom.

Content warning: Toilet use, head injury, groin injury, inconvenient truths.

Email me at art@ejbarnes.com if you'd like it. Once I know you're interested, donate to the fund and I'll mail it off to you.
