This Just In. Matt Groening to Appear at ICON7.

This reporter has learned through reliable sources, on deep background, and totally off the record that *wink wink*, a certain Matt Groening will be Lynda Barry’s “super secret, special guest” for the Friday night Artist as Cartoonist keynote at this year’s ICON7, The  Illustration Conference.  I can also report that Ms. Barry and Mr. Groening go way back, meeting at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA in the 1970′s. Maybe they’ll talk about that, maybe they won’t. I don’t know. You’ll have to show up and do your own reportage. And please, whatever you do don’t tell anyone on Twitter or Facebook you heard it from me. Tell them you heard it on TMZ or something.

This much I can tell you, ICON7 will take place in a place called Providence, RI on June 13-16, 2012.
