Cat Cover!

I've submitted four cover layouts for the next Warriors book. Which one did the 'Powers that be' choose?

Neighborhood Watch

One of the interesting things about working freelance is that you get used to the rhythms of your neighborhood.The same cars that park in the same place, when the neighbors do the sweep the porch and that kind of thing. Yesterday, I noticed a summons on the gate in front of the empty lot next door. That empty lot has caused nothing but trouble. I have blamed the rat infestation on the lot and the owner does not show any interest in cleaning it. I hope whomever owns the property, gets arrested.

But getting back to the rats. I have put traps outside and they are working.

False Alarm

I got a knock at the door on Friday. I opened it to find two detectives and one of them had a subpoena for me. What? Right away, I thought that there must have been a mistake. After calling the contact coordinator that day, she wanted to double-check and get back to me on Monday. False alarm! I had never seen any crime and it was a mistake. I'm happy not to take to whole day for nothing.

Cat Sketch Fever

I have not posted in a while. I have been busy with work and when I am not working, I am busy with other things. I have started on the second issue of the Warriors Cat book! I think everyone will like the first issue when it comes out this fall. So take a look at a couple of layouts!

Transformer Chatter

I have read Steve's blog and Simon's blog and I like the various comments on the page I inked.

Basketball Monday

I got into an argument with a guy tonight. I guess with all the testostorone flying around it was bound to happen. I am still learning the game and everybody loves to hand out advice and I am a little annoyed.

OK! Leave me alone! It's not my ball, but I'm taking it and leaving anyway. I have a low tolerence for nonsense!

My View

I am working at home these days which means my view changes very little. I don't mind it. I joked with a friend recently that I could be happy here under house arrest. Six months staring at the same walls? No problem.

My drawing table faces my tiny front yard and the wooden wall that protects my privacy. It was bare when I moved in and I quickly put my mark on it. Any poster I can get my hands on will make it onto the wall. The line up usually changes with every rainstorm as the paper shreds, and there have been a nice mix. Every time I look up from the drawing board, there's something nice to see.

New Music

A special shout out to Babyphat523! When I mentioned in an earlier blog that I really enjoyed getting mix tapes and CDs from friends, she sent me one! Really good music that's on regular rotation in my car. I also got a package of CDs from Marie, a variety of great music! Thanks!

My Gift

My girlfriend got me a gift for Valentines Day. This is a first! We are both coffee drinkers and she kind of surprised me with coffee, a pair of cool mugs, a bottle of Hazelnut syrup and a card. That's cool. She's the best.

Everybody call San Diego!

I can't take the yearly San Diego hotel drama. But luckily it turned out well for me today. I got nice room really close to the con so I won't gripe about it. Instead, check out a previous post.

It's been a long ting since i've bought High-top Sneakers. When you have a size 14 foot, your options are limited. Except when it comes to Basketball sneakers! If I wanted to continue playing basketball on Mondays, I knew I had to buy appropriate footwear. The blisters I got last week were murder. So I bought a nice pair of Addidas shoes on Saturday and I broke them in over the weekend. I think my game improved! Thank you footwear!

I am really happy that the NY Giants won the Super Bowl yesterday. The team had a slow start to thier season but kept fighting and beat Dallas and Green Bay on the road. I love watching football and the only thing that will keep me from going crazy until September is... Nope. I'll just go crazy.

Ready for The Summer?

The January 21-27 issue of VARIETY has a list of movies coming out this summer. Many of them are either Comicbook or Sci-fi based. I think that's great! It's an inspiration to all the Comic creators out there with an idea. I say that because there are dozens of talented creators out there (Including myself) ,who are drawing the next great graphic novel that could be turned into a screenplay.

These dates are subject to change, but you should plan your summer around these movies!
