Turn to the right!
Wow, I really suck at blogging this month. Even my Adventure Con recap is way overdue.
Adventure Con came and went and a good time was had by all. I enjoyed spending time with Doug and Pat and Tom and Andy and Dev and Jamal during and after the show, as well as meeting Michael Golden, Mark Texeira (the funniest man alive), and Arthur Suydam. I never knew Doug Mahnke could bring a man down with the smooth, dulcet tones of his singing voice but his serenade reduced me to tears of hysterical laughter.
The comic readers down in the Knoxville area seem to be about as nice as they come. I'm used to people lying and saying they enjoy my work but I almost believe the Knoxville-ians. It's nice to also see the familiar faces of people that I met last year at this same show, sort of a small family of friendliness down south. I got to meet a few of the media/movie guests and the Smith and Pyle concert after hours on Saturday was a blast. A big thanks to Brandon Mysinger for setting the whole thing up and bringing us all down to Tennessee for the show. I hope to be back next year.
On the work plate this week, I'm finishing the script for the first issue of a project Andy Smith and I are doing for IDW. I'd like to get a couple in the can before I make my return to the monthly inking grind next month, reuniting with Big Poppa himself on our new assignment for DC. And anyone who thinks the only thing Jamal can do is draw has never seen that man dance!
That's about all the up I can think to date at the moment. So, one last thing just for you, Pat (you know it's coming...)
TURN TO THE RIGHT!
