which stands for, SMALL PRESS EXPO, to those not as nerdy as me.
i know there has to be some of you out there.
before i go into SPX, check out my new drawing i just uploaded. this link will take you to the actual drawing, with photoshop colors, BUT it has been made into a prin, a four color screen print! that i printed only 6 of on paper, and one on a tshirt for myself. talk about limited edition, im selling each print (not the shirt) for 30 bucks at SPX. here is the link.
i actually like the PRINT better than that version, so ll have to get one of those scanned in and up here.
allright, SPXXXXXXXXXX, heading off in the car tomorrow morning to BETHESDA MARYLAND, a 9 or so hour drive for me, where we will be eating pre packed sandwiches and drinking perrier... the show goes all weekend, sat, and sun. im sharing a table with that good friend of mine im always mentioning, JOEL ZAIN RIVERS of www.obioncomics.com so that will be fun. meagan will also be selling things, VOTE for her shirt on threadless. the link is in the following post titled, THREADLESS! so yeah. not much to report on SPX yet! as it hasnt happened YET! but ill keep you posted, i hope i find a publisher who wants to publish SOMETHING LIKE FALLING. ok, talk to you later.

pirates vs ninjas
new drawing up.
its a few months old actually, done as a commision for a friend, i am not really a die hard fan of gijoe, and even less a fan of pirates of the caribean, (sorry) haha buuuuut, pirates vs ninjas, thats a timeless battle, so its worth doing, plus, i had fun with barbossa, i guess when hes in the shade his skeleton ghost form shows through, which i really had fun drawing.
in other news, im looking to move, im actually looking for work on the westcoast, anything along the lines of comics, cartoons, film, illustration, concept design, design design, freelance, anything... so keep your ears open for me. thanks.
ive got SOMETHING LIKE FALLING roughed out al the way to page 30and am working on the finished version of page 25 today, im going to get all 30 done by sept 26 for SMALL PRESS EXPO! dont forget! the 30 page preview will eb available for sale, ive never put my books out in little sneak previews before, its an interesting idea, ive been getting good feedback on the first 14, which if you havent read, you can, by clicking the link right at the top of this page. its also fun because each version becomes a limited edition, and wont be printed again once the next comes out, so maybe youll be one of the few with all of them once the book is finished, that sounds cool to me, i dont know, haha. see ya.

onto page 24
things have been kinda crazy lately, verrrry busy, plus the weather is so nice, its hard not to be out on the ocean. BUT i have finished page 23 of something like falling, so now im onto 24, im going to rough out 24, 25 and 26, possibly more before i start working on the finals of each, ill try to keep people posted as much as i can. i know i havent added anything to the site in a while, im a slacker, but soon enough youll be able to read all the way up to page 30 of something like falling, so look forward to that. in the meantime, here is a sneak peak at page 23, its a lousy photo of the rough version and final version of the page, in this one daniel is talking to his brother who is paying no attention and flipping through the channels at a hotel somewhere in north carolina. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=7811628&l=c1fdbdc40b&id=567270385

Almost at thirty.
Once I have thirty pages of my book, something like falling, I will be reprinting the pitch for publishers and resending out to the 16 plus people I sent the first fourteen pages to and hope this time to spark some interest. I got only two responses last round of the submission. Two very nice rejections, I'm hoping the other publishers are staring at it waiting to make their move haha. Maybe.

Just in case
You didn't know already. ..... Transformers 2 revenge of the fallen is awesome. I've seen it twice and plan to most likely go again tomorrow. Don't listen to the reviews see it or yourself and expect a popcorn blockbuster of a movie. Talk to you later.
