This week I joined the staff at Grist, where I’ll be writing and drawing daily environmental news. I’ll still have updates here on other projects, but the bulk of regular Susie updates will now live there, so please follow!

I’ve just returned from two weeks in France, and there is so much blogging to catch up on. I did a short interview with the Seattle Times’ Seattle Sketcher columnist Gabi Campanario — Gabi’s work is really lovely, and I hope to see more jobs like this at other traditional media properties in the US. (I saw quite a bit of it in France, ahem.)
I’ve got five new comics lined up for the upcoming weeks, including a report on my trip with Cartooning for Peace, but for now perhaps you can sate yourselves with this follow-up to my Education in For-Profit Education — the Incredible Shrinking Pell Grant.
In case you missed them over there in the sidebar, I also did a two-parter on the Bay to Breakers race in San Francisco for 7×7 Magazine, and a comic for American Prospect on our impending debt ceiling doom — still impending!

I did an interview yesterday with Brian Heater of the celebrated indie comics blog the Daily Crosshatch, and to my surprise and amazement, that overachiever posted the thing but a few short hours later. I gotta say, that’s faster than I’ve ever transcribed interview tape.
I’m not sure if I answered anyones’ pressing questions, though Brian did talk some about my father, plus there are lots of [laughs].

It’s been so long since I did one of these that I forgot to compensate for the Flickr wash-out with my watercolors, so it’s a little light ‘n bright. Two more on the drawing board, then I can finally get to some TIWCM updates.

Me: It’s like Chicken Fucking Little over here. I’m planting my seeds and sifting my flour and no one’s around til I’m done baking my bread.
My mom: Um, it’s the Little Red Hen, dear.
Me: Oh. Well. Whatever.
My mom: (laughter) Chicken Little was the one who said the sky is falling.
Me: Oh the Little Red Hen had a pessimistic kid and everyone was surprised??
This will be a comic when I’m done with the diaries I’m sure. Four more, so keep your pants on! I know I am!
