Off line life has been a little busy and unsettled for me of late, so I haven't had much of a chance to post and answer much in the way of correspondence. So, while I have a little bit of time, here is some stuff that has been on my mind.
1. I'd like to thank the new watchers, folks who have faved my work, and added my pieces to their group galleries. I am particularly grateful for those who took an interest in my sci-fi work and character studies. They tend to get a little lost among the pin-ups and grappler girls, so always like it when they get a little love. My computer has not been able to keep up with my sci-fi visions, but I still hope to put out more of this type of material.
2. Speaking of grappling girls, the match I promised in May is finally posted. Hope folks like it.
3. I may start culling some pics and characters, and try to consolidate my galleries and folders. Trying to figure out what goes, how to do it with a minimum of disruption to the fans and watchers, and how to organize it. Adding to the chaos are my ideas for new characters, and some new slice of life, candid type shots, and more fourth wall breaking. Stay tuned.
4. Hey, any one know what happened to Warlord 9 and Zarkods?
5. This last might be a bit of a non-sequitur , but what the heck. Any one here know about Free Comic Book Day? It's an effort by publishing houses both large and small to introduce this art form and product to new readers, and a bonus for current ones. Well, for FCBD Marvel put out a thoughtful exploration of what it means to be a hero, both the spandex variety and other wise, and the limits of what one person can do. What did their Distinguished Competitors do? They put out a dark vision of their top heroes turned into murderous, grotesque, cybernetic doppelgängers of themselves. Pain and dismemberment abounded. This has become a theme within DC. They have some great writers and artists, but it's as if they don't like their heroes very much.
Yeah, I went with the Marvel offering. That and Atomic Robo.
