As I have written on here a few times in the past, for several years I worked with a children's theatre group designing and building sets, stage lighting, sound etc.  For the first time since I have been involved one of those children has died.

I guess he was no longer technically a child, he was in college, and even when I knew him he was exceptionally mature. It was a freak accident while walking in the woods.  I am a bit shaken at this.  It had been a couple of years since I had seen him, and I didn't even have him on Facebook.  But I remembered him fondly, and he was the sort of person who had amazing potential and attitude.

Just a sad event.  And I feel pretty powerless to help those who are more deeply affected.

Free Comic Book Day is less than 2 weeks away.  I am finishing up a new art print, getting ready to order a new comic called "The Journey of Brave Ulysses" (more on that later), and I have an idea for another art print that I hope to get done in time for FCBD (and Heroescon after that!).

I will be set up at The Hobby Shop in Wilson, NC for FCBD, please stop by if you are in the area.  Should be a good time.  The Hobby Shop is in a new store that is very nice.

Its Monday (boo) but tomorrow is the Tuesday I have off every other week (Yay!).  I have lots of stuff I want to get done and ready for con season.

Will post more info when I get more cons scheduled.

A truly remarkable show for me!  It was my 2nd most successful show ever (including 2 and 3 day shows)!  Only last years NCComicon was a better show for me, and it was a three day event.  I am stunned.  I am also a bit tired, but happy.

Saw a lot of people, some I have met before and some for the first time.  There were 1200 people through the doors, for a one day show.  Sometime you can do more in a smaller one day show than in those huge cons, because you can take your time.  Work your way around the room, check out the dealers and meet the artists before deciding with whom to spend your money.

I knew that I was really looking forward to this show, because I haven't done one in so long, but I wasn't expecting such a good day.  Thank you with deepest sincerity to the attendees of the show, other artists and writers, and of course Rick for putting the show on in the first place and all of his work to expand it.  It is obviously working.

If you haven't been to this show in Charlotte, go if you are able.  It is a great convention.

Just sent off my latest comic to the printer.  Its a rare mix of contentment, excitement, and anxiety.  The life of an obsessed comic book artist.
