our latest project

As most of you have probably noticed, Evan and I tend to keep quiet about our projects until we feel confident enough to announce them. We've been working on a pretty major collaboration for some time now, and keeping it quiet hasn't been easy, let me tell you. But, we're pretty confident that we'll be making our expected ship date this December so we feel it's high time to let you all in on what we've been working on. So, we're happy to finally announce our latest (and by far greatest) House of Fun project -- our daughter, due right before Christmas this year!

Yes, that's right, we're adding a new little staff member to the House of Fun studio. I'm just about 6 months along now, and she's super-healthy and doing great. I'm doing very well too, at least these days. If any of you remember, I was really ill this spring -- yup, that was because of this baby. I was severely ill with pregnancy sickness (let's not call it morning sickness because it was 24-hours-a-day sickness) for about the first 3-1/2 months, but thank goodness things have gone well ever since that finally ended.

But now you all know why we have been so scattered, stressed and overworked this year. (Not to mention getting rid of things as fast as we can -- this house is small!) I expect this pattern will be continuing for quite some time. Don't worry, I won't be boring everyone to death with the details of my crib comparison shopping or decisions over how many onesies one baby really needs. But since that sort of nonsense does take up quite a bit of my time these days, you can expect a lame posting frequency from me -- sorry about that!

Anyway, so that's what has really been going on around here for most of 2004. Many mysteries are becoming clear, aren't they? ^_^ Thanks to everyone who has been supportive and just generally nice to us this year (and always) -- it all helped us get through the tough days!

Lovely things people have had to say:

Thats great news! Congratulations to both of you.



Wow! Congratulations! I'm glad that you are feeling better, and thanks for sharing your exciting news! Rest assured that you do have some moms in your reading audience, and we won't object to posts about babies and baby stuff! *grin*
Best wishes from a long-time fan.

Whoa! I haven't been keeping up with anything on anyone's blogs in quite some time and the first thing I read is this news...I wish the both of you the best and congratulations on everything!

Are you glad you aren't in FL? We keep getting these damn hurricanes.


Congrats!!! I am so excited for you both. :)

finally! a kid!

i am very happy for the both of you and especially happy and excited for the little one in sarah's belly.

bryan matthew m.

p.s. i hope evan got my baby goat joke from months back. i stole it from the malcom x biography.

Best wishes! Exciting news, and looking forward to the occasional "onesie" post.

Ah, it all makes sense now...

CONGRATS!!! Woo hoo!! That kid will have so much fun growing up with you guys. You'll be AWESOME parents.

Wow! Amazing news! Congratulations!

Got a name picked out yet?

Hooray Sarah!! Wonderful news! Will give you a big hug in person on Saturday at the Expo...

Don't know what to say on this thing.
As soon as that thing pops out put a brush in its had since it should have some fine arty genes from between you two.

Woooow! A baby Dyerdorkin of 2004! That means she's gonna go to OUTER SPACE someday! Here's to baby's health! Wooohooo!


I'm so happy for both of you! That's great.


Excellent news!

Mazel tov!

You cannot have too many onesies.

Also, any clothes you really like you should get no smaller than a size 1, because kids grow so fast.


Congratulations. Best wishes for all 3 of you. Stock up on your sleep now while you can.

So, uh, there going to be a limited dealer edition with gold foil cover? :)

If you'd put a wok over my scalp and whanged it repeatedly with a wooden spoon, you would have surprised me one nth of the amount I am surprised by this news. And I certainly wouldn't be as happy about it. Congratulations, you two cool cats. Soon be three!

All these comments and no one thinks to ask about names. Got any? Too many? How about a naming contest?



Big super happy congratulations!

Hey, Congratulation. A Parent is you! ;-)

CONGRATS! That's awesome news!

Geez!!! This is great news!! Where can we send presents?!?

I'm so very, very happy for the two of you, Sarah. And you guys already keep the sort of hours that will be perfect for those night-long crying jags. And once Evan's done with those, there's the baby's as well.

Can't wait to see her working the table at MoCCA next year.


Now Evan will have an inker!

wow, congratulations! i'm sure your baby will be quite possibly one of the coolest and most talented people ever, as she'll come from such cool and talented parents. ^^

Holy good gravy! A baby!

Miss Sarah, I am so proud and happy for you. That's great! Amy and I had pondered a few times if you two were ever going to have a child. I'm excited to see how pretty she'll be. You'll def have to post pictures.

Oh, and I can't wait to see Evan's rendition of the delivery day in one of his comics ^_^.

Congratulations, kids!!

That's awesome. Congratulations to both of you.

milk and cheese baby bibs and onesies in the future product line?!

congrats on the little one!!

Congratulations! That's awesome.

CONGRATS.. that's so awesome. :)

Now i have to feel bad if i miss an issue of your stuff. "BUT THEY HAVE A CHILD TO FEED!!!" thanks. thanks a freakin' lot. :)

WOO HOO!! I'm SOOOOOO surprised! ::wink wink:: I'm so happy for you too, as I've already told you, and relieved that I no longer have to keep this a secret anymore! When's the shower?!?! I'll get working on a mini-Action Girl costume... ;)

So Dyer-Dorkin or Dorkin-Dyer????

That's great news and I wish you all the best.
