There's some great imagery to my western story, but a few hurdles narrative-wise to jump over before I can get to them. I've been working with longer formats a while, and it's tough axing things down to keep it a short story so it won't take over my life!
With the Time Machine being an ebook until the new year, I'm left a little unarmed for the upcoming Emily Con, hence the blog info at the bottom of the image. This'll be a bit of a different show for me with some postcards promoting the book and site, I'll have some original pages on display, and of course be firing off sketches until the wrist falls off. Looking forward to seeing you all there!

It's an interesting year for gigs you can't pas up, though it's cutting my con touring down. This year it looks solely to be Vancouver Fan Expo and Calgary.
That would be all good, but from what I'm hearing, Seattle's going great as I write this, and I actually cancelled my table/flight/hotel on that one. You can't do everything; I'm getting too mellow and whirly in my old age to let myself get stressed out.
Too the slopes!

A man's GOT to know his limitations.
Things are about to get board crazy around here, but that's what keeps me in the cheezits, after all.

A plug for Colin Lorimer; a local (loco?) board guy now juggling comic work with both Dark Horse and Image, for good reason. Have a look, UXB and Harvest are both great.
I did not get paid for this endorsement in any shape or form of a new toaster.

**BLOODY HELL is now up on Drive Thu Comics for the ebook price of 3 bones! That's a buck per each terrifying tale of torment! Hey, if these stories don't make your flesh crawl, your skin's on too tight!**
My apologies for the lack of posts, the boards are flying fast and furious these days and the conventions are on the way. You'll definitely be seeing me at Seattle's Emerald City, Vancouver's own Fan Expo, Kapow! In London, and the Phoenix Comic Con. I'm still not locked in for Lucca in Tuscany, but have every intent on getting out there too.
I didn't do it last year, but think I might start a from the trenches blog of the tour, I'll let you know when I know/commit!

Again, this was a sketch floating around in my desk that I thought I'd clear my mind with a bit. The Cool Air last page wasn't working for me, so I thought I'd go come back to it after I finish up my horror short Mary Lou (the 1st page is a few posts down) and fartin' around a bit.
Thursday, October 13, 2011
Wow, tough crowd.
...Okay, okay, uh...sweat, sweat...how 'bout this one?...wipe forehead... here's page 1 of a Lovecraft story for the great folks at Graphic Classics. (Just the inks. ) this, Creature Converets and Mary Lou, and Reflections of a Werewolf'll all be going into a horror compilation. Any Good Name suggestions?
I'll also want some pin ups to put in it, so think old horror books before the code came in if you're interested!

A cool bit of news; Batman 3's shooting at Wollaton Hall in Nottingham, UK.
I can't possibly express what a presence this building has in my life. Notts is my heritage; I spent a lot of my youth there, and lots of time in and around this site, enjoying the huge deer filled park that surrounds it, the caves that run under it, and art classes held within it's Elizabethan walls. Heck, My wedding pictures are in front of the thing! It's a beautiful, looming personality that feels like it's in some way partly mine, or at least we know each other a bit better than most. ( Could be this relationship that makes me love the original the Haunting so much.) I can only assume it'll be the new Wayne Manor. Go figure. I guess it's more his, then. Nice to see the old girl getting some screen time, anyway.
I'm there in 8 weeks as I start a bit of a tour that goes Notts>Helsinki>Moscow>New York. It's a big trip, and I'm just hitting silly season for doniroes, so when the posts (if they happen) get sloppy, do not adjust your set.

I almost sluffed this one off with "I'm too busy," (the usual).
My last con was a disappointment that made me woefully unprepared for this amazing show. Apparently over 5,000 people came through on the preview night in 5 hours, leaving my small amount of stuff pretty scoured. I've jumped right in this year, doing my first show at APE in San Fran, KAPOW! in London UK, BIG WOW in San Jose a bunch of others, and this thing was just astounding. Calgarians, Edmonton... toinians?... tians... ites.... Edmenintights.... Folks from Edmonton.... The amount of costumes, talent, buyers, and flatout spirit sent it WAY over the top. I HIGHLY recommending anyone planning on doing the circuit to join this party. I mean, look at this kid. How awesome is that? Wait, it gets better; that's her parents also in the shot. ( Yes, the mom's Harlequin, wierdos.)

Well, back to the BOARDCAVE.
Monday, May 09, 2011
I had a window between my last show and BIG WOW! in San Jose, and managed to get this 8 page short done for the swell folks over at Airship 27. They've got some great old characters they're playing with, including some noir vintage '40s stuff like the Shadow and this guy, the Rook. There's a rockin' sequence coming up here, and an even groovier bad guy.
I've also just committed to a couple exciting series so between comics and cartoons, it looks to be another rockin' summer for yours truly!
Time to scramble together some mattes for my prints, and get ready for the weekend. If you're in the San Jose area, drop by, I'll be in Artist's Alley with our pal Jimmy Ricochet!

* Wow. What other gig do you do for a living that comes with a letter that says THIS in it?:
"Your table is number 112 located in Artist Alley, the island of tables to the left of the Tardis and Darlek."
I'm so pumped I could PLOTZ!

Don't get me wrong; this is nothing compared to the minus 30's of la Belle Province, but one gets used to a certain type of winter out here. Apparently, it's the fault of El Nina/Ninia/N-n-nn-NeeaAAGHHH!!! I better get some good skiing out've all this, is all I've got to say!
ZOMBIE ALERT! Asylum Press' anthology "Zombie Terrors" is out now! It's been bumped up to 184 pages of brain sucking goodness, including "Creature Converts," my cat -zombie tale, and STILL priced at the chained-down-in-the-bargain-basement price of $14.95!

Hum dee dee dum dumm... Must concentrate...Stay focused...think of the schedule...
*Meanwhile, inside Craig's Brain:
"What's up, Dude?"
" It's not happening, Walter. I'm diggin' and diggin, but it's not happening. I'm lethargic, man.
"Who's lethargic, Dude?"
"SHUT THE FUCK UP, DONNIE!"
"Walter! Jesus, man!"
"Fuck it, Dude. Let's Bowl."

What's that zombie got on his (exposed) mind, anyway? Our lovely heroine doesn't look as worried about the stretched out sinews of flesh she's losing as much as the fact this creep's ripping here favorite dress.
You can see a preview at the Previews site, or right here at Asylum Press.

It's sure been a while since I posted anything. I suppose at this point no one's left out there? (Hopefully I'll be meeting new & old friends at APE in San Fran come October!)
