I checked in with my publisher, Karen Syed of Echelon Press, today in order to purchase more books as I’ve run out. It was a fortuitous instance, as she let me know that our contract is up at the end of this month and she’s moving to Florida. So with the idea that she needs to make her move easier, she’s offered too sell me the remaining books. Now, I’ve sold through for her – which means that she’s made her money back. And there’s Read More +
So Saturday night the daughter units and I were kicked out of the house for my wife’s bookclub. The DUs invited a few friends to go out to dinner and see a movie with us. Not a lot they wanted to see, so we looked around at where we wanted to see a movie and settled on the theater near the Creperie on Clark Street, where Jane Eyre was playing. Not my first choice for a movie, but it was great (even if you if Read More +
I think so, not sure of course. But, I’ve updated the theme, added all the comics I could, played with the navigation and added a couple of be events. And yesterday I wrote six new pages. Tomorrow, I might draw one. We’ll see, it’s been pretty obvious I’ve tried to do too much before. But I’m starting to feel a bit caught up.
Been a while, but it’s a good sign that I’m doodling again.
A long overdue site update. It’s been almost a year since I sat down and drew a new page. I think that drought may be near to ending. First, though, I’m going to upload all my strips here. Haven’t figured out what to do about book 1 though – it’s an odd size. I may end up coding that as HTML by hand.
Well, for some reason my evil plan didn’t work. My twitter posts were supposed to update my blog but I got busy and haven’t checked in here lately. So all those 140-or-less character thoughts about toenail clippings are lost to the ether. Alas. Any way, I’m working on the mechanics of the blog with some help and you should see some changes around here in a few weeks. Including an updating cartoon.
Decided to go a bit abstract this year.

It’s been a pretty good con – very well attended and sales have been good. Lot’s of people have been pleasantly surprised at the turnout and feel this con has the potential to turn into a real Indy-friendly event. And I have to say – kudos to the Wizard World staff. Friendly, helpful and a great experience. Here’s Dirk, Brian and Alisa who have been alongside me the whole time:
And it’s the same thing: I have what we believe to be the last two boxes of the Twilight Tales editon of Something to build upon. I’ll be selling there in Artist’s Alley all weekend, at table 3102, so stop by. And definitely visit the Jordan’s at Crimespree’s booth. In other news, summer has been great and full of things going on – work and family. Comics, and you can guess, not so much. The daughter units graduated from 8th grade and are entering high Read More +
