Well, I was hoping to post this last friday, but as I was nearly done
out this elaborate, epic blog, my page refreshed and I lost everything. I
known better. Anyway, I'll try to do a better job of posting this on
blogger or livejournal as well as on myspace. A lot of people complain
that I post on myspace...
hmm... It's been a while since I last posted. Frankly, the more time passes
(between blogs)the less I feel like posting. Shit, I think the last time
was before summer kicked off.
I'd write about my summer, but there was far too much going on.
From the gazillion freelance projects I took on, to my California trip,
Uberjam, Wizard World and after party.. and so on. At this point I
really can't think of everything that happened...
I do have a bunch of new artwork. Most of what I've been working
on you will probably won't see any time soon. But It'll be worth the wait.
I've noticed the blog has been getting quite a few hits although
the updates have been lacking. Awresome!
I've been feeling a little burnt again. I'm not
salty. Just a little tired. Honestly,
I'm really excited about what I've been working
on. Next year is what's up.
Trying not to push it too much, but I gotta make up for
the meager output of the last few years.
So, on to the art.
A little theme music, please?
I'll start with some commissions done at Wizard World.
I was set up with Mike Huddleston, Mike Bianco, and
Jim Mahfood. My crew is better than yours.

Polar bear X Penguins on mini canvas
Before the convention, I started working on drawings to sell
at my table (since I didn't have any print material available)
Douchebag from The Wizard
Mario Bros. 2
The afterparties we held this year (Friday at Darkroom,
Saturday at The Black Beetle) were off the chain. This
thing gets bigger every year. Thanks to everybody who came
through to kick off the dance party.
Big up- Pickel, Intel, Elevation, J.Lee, Mahf
Huddleston, Food One, Bianco, Carl, Blaylock
If you weren't there, you missed the debut of
a/k/a Cluepeezy, ?Pac, Cloopdog, Cloopay Fyasko, Macluevelli
back from the dead to solve mysteries.
on the dj table....
Don't want to get into it just yet, but I just wanted to
show off designs from a couple original
concepts I'm working on...
Sheila, Scott, Johnny, Mr. Cruz and Carl
Davey Wurst and Afro-Brites
I'll keep you posted as news develops
(plus a few additional weeks/months/years)
AAAnd lastly, I'm sure you all remember
The first chapter will be done soon (I swear!)
Rather than putting out a 168 page black and white graphic novel,
I will be serializing it (about quarterly) over the next couple years.
It will be in full color. And as it stands, free.
Online. Unless somebody offers a deal I can't refuse.
I'm dying to get this story done and out. I jut couldn't deal with rushing
this out just to meet a deadline (and for little to no cash)
When I started working on it in 04, I found myself having to cut
much of the story in order to meet the deadline/page count.
I've had more ideas since then, so a limitless page count is exactly
what I need at this point....

Right click and save while supplies last!!!!!!
Teen Heaven will be serialized in .Smileytower.,
an online mag that will also feature Deeds and
other art/stories from me.
I'm hoping to launch it January 1st, 2008.
no. I WILL launch it 01/01/08
I'll keep you in the know. Cuz I love you.
If you check this blog from time to time, please subscribe.
it's free, it's one click, and you'll be notified everytime
I've got something to say. er, show.
Hope all's good with you, catch you on the flipsides!!!!

Chweet dreams are maitre'de (s)...
in other news- Ugh. I'm tired. I have this new routine (at least for the
next couple weeks) where I get up, go to work, come home around
5:30, go to sleep til 8-8:30, get up and get to work(at home). This
project romantic story is doing a number on me, but it is bringing
back the passion for drawing/coloring/et al... I just can't wait until
Not looking foward to doing the whole tax thing next week. every
year I swear I'm gonna get them shits done early, and I never do...
To everybody that's e-mailed, called, texted, etc...sorry if I haven't
replied yet. I'm slow. I'm trying to stay in this work mode right now,
that's why I'm not going out for coffee and all that shee-eie-yot. I'll
probably break out tomorrow night, hit the beetle (as usual). Just
trying to save some dough, plus stay close to home. Once this story
is all wrapped up I'll be oot and aboot again.
Oh! New ish of Mad Kids (Zack & Cody (w.t.fuck?) cover) should
be out. Go get it. If it's not out, buy the last issue (I'm sure none of
you test tube babies got it yet!)

Oh, and here's what live painting at the Metro is like, for those who don't know.
Taken during a show with MF Doom.
My friend Terry Barth came over last night and jammed with me on a couple new pieces. I'm trying to get into live art mode, so I don't embarrass myself at the Metro in a couple weeks. These are acrylic fabric paints on a type of hardboard panelling I scored at Home Despot. We whupped both of these up in a couple hours.

Dark Horse has a 4 page preview from the new Jingle Belle series I've been working on
Jingle Belle #1 preview
It's a four issue, full color mini series that runs from Nov 04 to Feb 05.
This first issue drops November 24th, and it features a Polly Green back up story drawn by Stephanie Gladden. I'm mos proud!
Now it's back to work on issue 2, almost in the can and looking better than issue #1
Oh, and I also posted an impromptu preview of "Is This The End Of Teen Heaven" my next project after JB. It will be a massive graphic novel (clocking in around 200 pages or so)dealing with the BREAK UP of Teen Heaven. It will be out next summer. More news at 11.
