9 to 5- The Musical!

The good news is that 9 to 5 The musical is near identical to the movie with the theme song featured in the opening sequence. It's an enjoyable show! The bad news is I lost my sunglasses, stepped on a discarded pint carton of rotten milk and I did not make my Tokyopop signing at the West Hollywood Book Fair. Oh well.

Start the Grill!

I stared up the barbecue grill at 7:00 this morning. Someone knocked on my door 15 minutes later! It was the girlfriend of my upstairs neighbor and they woke up from all the charcoal smoke. I'll have to make it up to them.

Saturday Signing!

The signing was a lot of fun! It felt a lot like a comic convention actually, but with more kids and no costumed adults. I tried to entertain everyone with quick sketches and I did a bunch for some nice kids. I started before 2:00 and the nice people at Barnes and Noble really made me feel welcome. If you are reading this, you should have been there!
UPDATE! I was able to take the Book Standee home with me!

My Jeep Commercial

In 1995, I was working freelance in NYC when I got a call from a commercial production company. They wanted me to be a part of a JEEP AD where I would draw figures and backgrounds. It was an 'Adventure Days' promotion for the fall and I spent a week at the production studio. Nice gig! I've had this commercial on Video tape since '95 and I finally asked a friend to dub it onto a dvd. I don't know about the car, but I think the commercial holds up!

During the Mexican Revolution, Soldaderas were the wives of the rebels. They followed them and cooked, cleaned and patched their injuries. I am starting to work on my Western book again, so I am sketching a lot of Mexican characters around the 19th century.

Noel Sickles

I ordered a book from Amazon last week and it showed up yesterday. It covers the art of Noel Sickles, a great illustrator and Newspaper strip artist. I found about it from a great blog.It's a big book that I could not find at the shops and Sickles is totally supreme.

Okay, I love to post my own dopey videos, but this one was done by some guy on YouTube. It cracked me up and It's worth a look!

I started a job in 1997 for Jazzercise. I quickly realized that I would need help and I called the good people at MadScienceMedia to help me out. It was maybe 200 drawings in color with revisions!

It was exercises on a CD-ROM that people would view on their computers called CyberStretch. You could sit at your computer monitor and look at the drawings as they take the positions, and you would mimic the positions. You could exercise as you work!

Anyway, I got an email recently from the head guy at Jazzercise. He wanted copies of the Photoshop files for an updated version of Cyberstretch and I was happy to hear from him! I always thought he was a good guy.
Nowadays, you can go to thewebsite and download it. I think that's cool.

Vegas Construction

I was surprised by the new construction on the strip. A massive project on the strip next door to the Bellagio.

A Price...Must Be Paid!

After I returned from Vegas, and after my GF dropped me off at my car, I got into trouble as I was heading home. I heard whistling from my front left tire. That's right. I had a flat tire on a Saturday night. I had to drive my car with the spare all day Sunday, but I took care of it this morning. I think this is Karmas' way of levelling the good time I have been having.

What is TOTEM?

An old friend from my days at MARVEL called me up a few weeks ago. Alex Saviuk needed an inker for a book he is working on for Big City Comics. I was unfamiliar with the company, but Alex has done several issues of TOTEM for them. I used to ink Web Of Spider-Man over Alex and I have always liked working with him! I finished two pages over the weekend and I like how it has turned out.
