I just came back from meeting Josh, the author of Caffeinated Toothpaste,  and artist Johan at the wonderful Cheese Mountain Tragedy studio. They were both incredibly welcoming and accommodating despite my totally out-of-the-blue email. I had stumbled upon Josh's diary-style webcomic Caffeinated Toothpaste by chance a few months ago and I've been a fan ever since. I had a really awesome time talking to Josh about his favourite artists, his new book, and his experiences as an artist working up to this point. He even gave me his first book, which I read on the U-bahn on the way home...

Thanks again Josh and Johan, and see you again soon!


  1. The guy falling asleep is so cute! And I like Caffeinated Toothpaste too. :) It would be nice if I could visit comic conventions here to meet people and get their books (signed)! That's so brave of you to contact them and meet up with them, by the way.

  2. Thanks T! :)
    It was really inspiring to meet someone who does something I love doing! Come to think of it, I don't know a single other cartoon artist in person. It kind of reconfirmed my love for comics and all things was so nice! :D
