Virgin Project Vol. 2 Release! (and an excellent weekend)
Nick and I spent the weekend in Seattle to celebrate the fresh-off-the-press release of the Virgin Project Vol. 2!! Get yours here: Virgin Project 2!
Kevin and Grace threw an awesome book release party full of friends, family, Caribbean food and free-flowing wine. I got to meet some great people including Donna Barr, creator of the Desert Peach series, who wrote a wonderful review of the book here.
Kevin and I hosted a workshop at the Seattle Erotic Art Festival on Saturday, talked about the processes of story-collecting, editing, publication, and the social implications.
Later that evening we attended the Cartoonist’s Northwest Toonie Award Banquet.
“Authors KD Boze and Stasia Kato were honored to be recognized as Cartoonists of the Year for The Virgin Project at the annual awards ceremony of Cartoonists Northwest on May 1. They shared the Golden Toonie Award with Mark Monlux of Stick Man and Comic Critic fame . The Virgin Project also was named the Graphic Novel of the Year. And KD Boze also received the 2009 Best of the Northwest Award for individual cartoons. Thanks to all of our CNW friends!”
