Well, today not only marks a birthday with a "5" on the end, but more importantly it marks the tenth anniversary of the launch of this website! I'm a little stunned when I look back and see how much has happened in that time-frame, both for me personally and also professionally. Later this fall I'll also be marking the twenty-fifth anniversary of my career as a professional illustrator --lots more to come on that subject!
Special thanks to my hosts at Satori Digital Marketing for putting up with me this past decade. I owe so many more thanks to so many more people who've helped me to this point --I'd list them all here, but that would cause your browser to crash, so I'll instead just point you to the Acknowledgements Page of The Monitor's Guild, Book One. If you find your name on that page, then you did have a hand in getting this artist to this milestone, whether you knew it or not!
Have a wonderful summer and I'll see you all in a little less than a month at Boston Comic Con!

"...and for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor." Take a moment to re-read this singularly amazing document and reflect upon what it truly means. And why not pick up a copy of The Monitor's Guild, Book One this summer to celebrate the spirit (and the still-unfulfilled promise) of the Revolution?

What an amazing day! Great fans, great costuming, and all-around awesomeness at Free Comic Book Day at Double Midnight Comics in Manchester, NH! An incredible number of copies of the FCBD Edition of Book II of The Monitor's Guild went out the door in the hands of some truly wonderful fans and customers. Always a delight working with the Double Midnight folks and looking forward to future collaborations.

Openly weeping this day in this, the Year of the Spinning Mouse. Farewell Sir Terry. I cannot thank you enough; none of us can.

I had an absolutely delightful time lecturing at the Bradford (VT) Public Library this past Wednesday evening. We deconstructed some mythological themes, invented some entirely new superheroes, and discussed the graphic novel as both literature and as art form. Great group of folks! Artists: do make a point of donating some of your time (and your talents) to your local public library.

Stuck for holiday ideas for that comic-book geek in your life? Three eminently wonderful retailers spring to mind:
All of the above establishments and their awesome employees not only stock the best darned selection of genre titles and geeky/nostalgic collectibles (ranging from the wildly popular to the waaaay-too-obscure), but I'm proud to be able to say that they're also all carrying The Monitor's Guild, Book 1 on their shelves. So for that liberty-loving, government-distrusting patriot in your life (c'mon, every family's got at least one), order a copy from Amazon for the holidays!
And thank you one and all for ALL your support this past year! It's been heavy with a lot of great milestones, and 2015 looks to be every bit as spectacular!
