You know that James Kochalka was recently named the country’s first Cartoonist Laureate, right?

This is for real. James Kochalka is the prolific creator of American Elf, Johnny Boo, Dragon Puncher, Monkey vs Robot and about a billion other books and music albums and he’s currently making another billion books and teaching at the Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont (also for real!). James’ work has always been a blast to read and he’s been a great source for technical help when I’ve asked for it.

All the big comics news sites and blogs have covered the event pretty thoroughly and it was exciting to find this great post on how Pat Barrett designed the official seal for the crowning of our friend and first Cartoonist Laureate.
