I did an interview with a freelance writer earlier this year and we talked about my book GG+OS. It was for and I thought that it would run in late November. Here it is late December and it's better late than never! It's a cool piece and the reader comments are real nice. Visit!

Hey kids! Let's draw!

Do you remember when Brent Anderson started on Astro City? When he inked himself, he had such energy and he could use a pen as well as a brush with skill. I did a few sketches with a brush today and I noticed that I did a few lines that reminded me of the astro city stuff. I wish I could work on that book. That would be cool.

Gone but not forgotten!

Today I got a Christmas card from Image Comics. I get my fair share of holiday mail, so no big deal. The thing is that I haven't had anything to do with the company since 1999 when I published Forever Amber with them. I'm sure that I'm on some ancient list and the people who signed the card have no idea who I am. The card reminded me that I'm still included in a cool community. Comic book creators. I think that's cool. I hope they remember me next year!

Marie Javins

I have recently read a blog called 'No Hurry in Africa' by Marie Javins. I consider her a world traveler and she has made friends all over the world and walked roads that Magellan could not have imagined. I think that Marie is one of the bravest people I know because she has been through lorry crack-ups, riots and more shifty border guards than James Bond. After reading her latest blog of Dec. 06, I am thinking that maybe she has had some grave doubts about the direction of her life.

I would not want her to continue just to entertain me. I enjoy the blog it's true, but I would say this: Does traveling in this way make you happy? Would you give up a nomadic lifestyle to return to a nine to five? I have known Marie for a long time and I say that she would be miserable.

Hey kids! Let's draw!

I had a great time at the Mid-Ohio Con! I had a chance to walk around and take advantage of the cool deals. While searching the 50 cent box I found a beat up copy of Ms. Marvel #22. I had to get it! They had changed her costume to a tight black outfit with thigh boots and black arm length gloves! The best was the blond, Farrah Fawcett hair. I should point out that after her makeover, she started hanging out with the Avengers! I am a big fan of Carol Danvers aka Ms. Marvel, so I did some sketches.
