D-Day

I’m having my second kidney stone surgery today so as you can guess work is not at the forefront of my mind.  However with that said, I can tell you all that I completed the roughs for the entire book and am currently waiting for feedback from my writer’s group and a few select friends. […]

Failed

Onward!

Though I did not make much money this week… actually… come to think of it, I didn’t make a dime.  Anyway, I did manage to get the rough of my third issue finished which means today I start on my fourth and final installment of my graphic novel, Woo Hoo!  As you can see from […]

Stoned Out of My Mind

For the last week I have been working Stoned. No, I have not partaken in any herbal medicine. Quite frankly I hate the stuff. I’m speaking of the kidney stone I’ve had lodged in me since April 2015. So far I have had a surgery as well as an expandable tube called a Stent shoved […]

Overworked and Loving It

Not enough time this week to write anything substantial.  But please do take a gander on the work I’ve been doing – photo manipulation.

Magnificent Obsession

I’ve been lagging on my posts, I admit it. Good reason though, I am absolutely obsessed. With women? No. Money? No. Climate change? No. Chinese finger cuffs? Well, what color? Honestly, regardless of what they are making in Hong Kong at this moment my obsession is with my graphic novel which is in the roughs […]

Setbacks

We all have setbacks. I just had one last week thanks to a minor surgery that kept me from working for five days. Now five days is not much, but in that small space of time I turned down three background acting gigs and two storyboard jobs. We’re talking anywhere from $1200 to $3000. “Ouch, […]

Comic Con Has Lost Some Fun

Since 1999 I have attended every SD Comic-Con and for the first time I was unable to bring a guest, specifically my nephew, but more broadly his friends which have become mine as well. Now I did talk to some people and did go one day with a friend, but the “fun” of The Con was […]

My Buddy Art

Today I am working form my friend Art… which is different from doing art for work, however both involve art, but only one involves Art. In other words I’m doing art for Art’s sake. Not that I couldn’t do art alone or be alone with Art for that matter. In fact I’m not just doing […]

Achieving Success

I have achieved many things in my life. When I was twenty I made a list of ten things I wanted to accomplish. Several years ago I found that list, and other than travel to space, I had achieved every single one of them. I have at times, made lots of money, (without a degree […]

The Secret World of Freelancing: Part 1

I would venture to guess that even if one never freelanced one would automatically know that sometimes paychecks can be few and far between. But what might come to a surprise is that certain relationships can develop out this situation. For instance my phone answering machine has several phone calling machine buddies. I don’t know […]

The State of Things

Sounds like a political blog I know, but noooooo, we are not going there.  Well, maybe a little I guess. My new graphic novel takes place at the end of the civil war, and since war is politics by other means I guess I have, “Gone There.” This cute little guy is the first design […]
