I've been working on the script for my next few issues and I have the first 3 pages finished.  It has been nice having Meredith home.  She is definitely helping me keep focused.  It is always a bit of a challenge when you work at home to avoid distractions but knowing you have someone keeping tabs on you definitely helps.

As I'm working on my script I'm really trying to work in a few more of DC villians.  There are so many great ones, I really want to have the chance to draw as many as I can and the great thing about writing your own script is that you can pretty much, DC marketing plans not withstanding, draw who ever you want Batman to fight next.  I'd be curious to see who people would like to see Batman fight, I'll see about doing another poll.

By the way I really liked the ideas for the website and I'll pass them along to Meredith.  Maybe we'll create a section with non-comic work.

New Website

Well it's definitely been a while, but it looks like Meredith has updated the website and we will be going back online with art sales pretty soon.  We will try to have prints and remarked comics up as well as some original artwork.  I think that the new website looks great and I'm really looking forward to having a more active online presence again.

It took me a while but I've finally finished up with the third issue of Dark Knight.  I'm really happy with how it turned out and thanks to everyone for being patient.

R.I.P. Dwayne McDuffie

I met Dwayne McDuffie in Detroit at a comic book show way back in 1993, just about 8 months or so before I started working in this business.  I was showing work around, and I was having a bit of a hard time getting anyone to take a look.  Mr. McDuffie was reviewing someone's portfolio as I walked by, so I very quickly got in line and waited.  When I got a chance to show him my work I learned more in a few minutes than I had in months.  Nobody else ever broke down the simple rules of basic storytelling and composition for me better.  He was patient, open, and he gave it all to me straight without any flowery nonsense.  It made me a better artist, and it helped me keep pushing on to my goal.  I'm eternally grateful, and it took me a long time to get the chance, but I was finally able to thank him not that long ago. 

He was a great professional, and he will be missed.
