I have been pathetically lax in keeping up with this blog, I confess. Big things have happened. The documentary about my husband Wayne White's work and life (which includes me and our children) , Beauty is Embarrassing , came out last year and now it's all over the Netflix etc. We never could have predicted the enormous response of the public to this film! It's been a wild and humbling ride. Wayne and I were honored and thrilled to have been chosen to be month-long residents at the Robert Rauschenberg Residency on Captiva Island, Fla, this past February and March. Following that I just spent 11 days with Wayne while he finished up a month in Oklahoma City working on a gigantic cardboard cubist cowboy installation for the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. And the fruits of these travels are that, when I leave town I am able to get tons of work done on my graphic novel, "Over Easy" which I am still toiling over for pre-emininent Montreal graphic novel publisher, Drawn and Quarterly. Part one of Over Easy, which will be about 260 pages, comes out next spring. Our son, Woodrow White, will be a senior at my alma mater, California College of the Arts, this fall. Our daughter, Lulu White, has been accepted at Cooper Union in the fall, in apparently the last class in Cooper's 154-year history to get free tution.
And, oh yeah, I changed my hair color. But besides that, I am almost finished with my very first exclusive web comic, which I promise to debut here in the next day or so, as soon as I figure out a clever title.
