The Blog of Gene Luen Yang
Colorado Language Arts Society and CSU Sacramento 
Life has once again gotten the best of me and I have fallen behind on my blog updates. In a couple of hours, I'll be speaking about how COMICS ARE INVADING AMERICA! at the Colorado Language Arts Society conference. I'm sitting in the swanky Inverness Hotel right now looking over my notes. I'm looking forward to it, but I wish I had posted about it earlier. Oh well.

On Tuesday 11/16, I'll be doing a presentation at 3pm at Cal State University, Sacramento. I'll post more details when I have them. Hopefully.

Ohio State University's Festival of Cartoon Art 

In just two days, Ohio State's 2010 Festival of Cartoon Art begins! The festival's already sold out, but I thought I'd mention it anyway. I'll be speaking there on Saturday about American Born Chinese. There are going to be many, many awesome aspiring and professional cartoonists there, including Art Spiegelman, James Sturm, and Matt Groening!

Details and schedule here.

Wanna Own A Page of Pure Awesomeness? 

Derek Kirk Kim has put some pages from The Eternal Smile up for sale. They look gorgeous in the book, but the originals are absolutely breath-taking. Something about watercolor doesn't scan quite right, so you really have to see these in person to get the full effect. They're pure 100% awesomeness.

Monkey King T-Shirts 

I got these t-shirts made right before Comic-Con this year, but a friend of mine has finally helped me put them up on the web for sale.

The shirt was designed by my brother-in-law and features the Monkey King as he appears in American Born Chinese.

Available in all adult sizes for $18.50 each, shipping included!
