The Kid Inside is Smiling

When I was 15 or 16, i started buying Wizard Magazine. I loved it. This was how I got my comic news before the internet came along and would read each issue from front to back. This is how I found out about my first comic book shows and conventions and led me to attending one of the first Chicago Wizard Worlds in '96. That show opened my eyes to a whole new world that I wanted to be apart of. Creating comics.

During those teenage years, I used to check in each month to see if any of my favorite artist would make the Wizard Top Ten artists. I would have arguments with friends over who was on it and who wasn't each month. It was our version of watching sports. Today made me remember those conversations and I wonder what my old pals would think of Wizard #213.

Yes, the kid inside is smiling because today I made the list. It's a small thing, but it's huge to that 16 year old that used to wait for Wizard each month hope to see his name on that Top 10 list. It's pretty cool to see. Thanks to everyone out there buying and supporting me on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and making that childhood dream come true! You guys kick ass!

New Podcast L.O.N.

Some of you might be missing the Devil and Me and I'm not sure when we'll be able to get back to it as Casey has so many dates book this summer.

But I have great news. (Mostly for me) A few buddies and me have started a book club podcast called THE LEAGUE OF NOBODIES. Brian Salazar, Braxton Harrison, Matt Burden and myself are going to be doing about 2 episodes a month. Each episode will focus on one graphic novel or trade. It's really just a chance for a few pals to sit around and talk about a book in detail and record it. Go over to the site and check out the primer episode. We'll be at itunes soon enough.

Commissions and Deviant Art

You all are funny. I post about being VERY behind and all I get are comments on getting on the list...haha. You all are in love with punishment. Seriously, I won't be adding anyone to the commissions list for quite awhile. So please, hold off on emails asking about getting commissions, prices, etc.

And on the art side. I will be getting back to adding art updates here at the blog very soon. I've been trying to give my Deviant Art account a little exclusive love to things rolling there but will start the posts here again shortly. So, go over to my DA page for new art.

Commissions and the Black Whole they Live In

Ok, for those of you with commissions outstanding with me, hold on for just a bit longer. They are coming. I've got a few things to wrap up this month and then I'm not doing anything for a week or two until the commissions are done. So, if you have one and are waiting, the wait is almost over, I promise.

Thanks for being so incredible with the waiting!
