How I wish I got paid for all of these things.....

I decided to compile my schedule of projects so I could really set my mind straight and get geared up for the next few months. On the two projects I will be pitching (along with writers), I will usually only do a handful of pages to shop around, and then, when and if the projects finds a home, I will start full production on them. The funny thing about doing all these projects is that there is an equal chance that all of them could get picked up by publishers or that none of them could, so I like to keep alot on my plate. These projects do not include ongoing freelance illustration gigs and my teaching stuff.

enjoy.
send me money.
hire me for something.

300.

I've watched this trailer about 10 times in the last 2 days. This is where digital filmaking is truly making it's mark. I cannot wait for this film, even thought I stopped buying the 300 comic after the first issue. Go and be happy.

The Great Lobster Chase

In my house, the bathroom is situated between 2 bedrooms, so to use the bathroom one must pass through the boy's room. The following scene took place last night at about 1am as my wife passed through - (this is paraphrased as I was a room away and partially asleep, but it went something like this....)
_______________________________________________________________

Sexy Wife goes creeps through the mess of the boy's room on her way to the restroom...

Ash, Age 8 (waking up) - "Mommy?, I had a dream and there was a lobster chasing me."

Sexy Wife - "oh wow Ash, that's a crazy dream."

Ash - "It didn't catch me but it tried to sting me with it's stinger."

Sexy Wife - "Lobsters don't have stingers baby, they have claws."

peeing sound coming from the bathroom...

Ash - "Yeah, but I tore it off so he couldn't get me."

Sexy Wife - "Did you eat the lobster tail?"

Ash - "No, I'm not going to drink poison, I'm not stupid."

Overweight Dad laughing his ass off a room away....

Aiden, Age 6, (waking up, tired and cranky) - "Aaaaasssshhh..... you woke me up shithead."

Overweight Dad nearly pissing himself in bed.........

Reminders......

Since the 50 ft. Blog is more a personal, journal type blog, I thought I would pop these links in a post for all to enjoy.

- For past interviews, reviews and all around cool shit about my book Villains - please visit the Villains Forum @ Viper Comics

- For sketches by me and some other bad-ass fellas, please visit the SKETCHJAM!

- I also post to the wonderfully wonderful Viper Comics Snakebites Blog

Back on the train.....



I figure I use blogger for every other blog I have, so why not this one too, if you have my LJ bookmarked, please change it to this. It's hot, I'm depressed and I just found this photo on Flickr of me @ the Phoenix CactusCon. The artist next to me never removed his glasses all weekend.

I also briefly got to meet Ron Garney!



and here are a bunch of local guys, Shannon Denton (Actionopolis!), Mike Bulloc, Illustrator Tony Parker and Raven.



Terry Austin, Brett Blevins and Mike Manley



here's Billy Tan making like $150 bucks..............



I am sad.

I also wanted to mention a really great postcard (scan) that I got from my friend John from his brother Danny. Danny is over in Irag (maybe Afghanistan?) and John had sent Danny some copies of Villains to read. Danny really enjoyed them and said everyone else did too and he asked that John forward along copies of #4 as well, so that made me feel really proud. While I don't support the war, I do support the troops, and I hope Danny stays safe and I plan to buy him a few beers next time I see him in Vegas.
