Big year behind, big year ahead

Happy New Year! Between finally finishing my PhD, moving back to California to start at research fellowship at UCSD, and being featured in a Discover Magazine article, 2012 was a big year. However, 2013 looks to be even bigger...

First off, this Fall will see the release of my book, The Visual Language of Comics: Introduction to the Structure and Cognition of Sequential Images, by Bloomsbury. I'm very excited about it, because it finally lays out the full foundation of my theories of visual language.

The other main event is that later this year I plan to fully relaunch my website and blog, including a new web address. If you want to plan ahead, the new url for emaki.net will become www.visuallanguagelab.com (currently a redirect). The blog will maintain it's main url (www.thevisuallinguist.com), and I will retain the RSS feed via feedburner. The new site will better reflect the changes that have occurred in my research over the last few years, and prep the site for when I set up a real lab as a professor, hopefully in a few years.
