That’s Me All Over

Some pictures I’ve drawn have been surfacing lately for all the world to see, namely…

(1) The just-published May issue of The Commonwealth (a printed manifestation of the multi-faceted, public-affairs-forums-fostering, non-profit Commonwealth Club of California, has arrived sporting the cover art I told you I was working on several weeks ago while juggling home renovations and a death in the family. And there’s an online version of the complete magazine that midwesterners, southerners, and easterners can access should time pressures prevent them from hopping a jet to California to chase down a copy of their own to read.

(2) My cover art for the December 21, 2006 issue of Birmingham Weekly (one of several covers serializing J’Mel Davidson‘s "Destroy All Santas") was picked up for inclusion in Comic Art Now, an attractive hardcover book by Dez Skinn (with Tim Pilcher on board as Commissioning Editor) that showcases a dazzling international array of comic book artists. And following fast on the heels of the British edition issued today by iLex Press will be an American edition of the same volume coming later this month from HarperCollins.

Meanwhile, the flesh-and-blood version of me (as opposed to my published cartoon manifestations) had a good time yesterday at the Norman Rockwell Museum’s Comic Art Festival that I blogged at you about several days ago.
My slideshow was appreciatively received by a friendly audience, I’m happy to say, and I enjoyed the chance to see several of my comics-creating colleagues again — in some cases for the first time in many years.
