Latest and Last Listoon

What we'd like Texas and OU players to say in postgame interviews.

Ah, read it while you can. Unfortunately this is the final Listoon. The newspaper is going start running my friend David Hopkins' strip "We've Never Met" weekly. Unlike Listoons, it's a serialized strip and they're making the move in attempt to get readers catching on to it. Good news for David and Chad. Sad news for me and Geoff... er, uh Stacy. I can never get that straight, I'm always unsure about where he/she is the transformation process.

Anyway, it was a fun ride. Thanks to David, who got me involved. Thanks to Rob, my Editor at Quick for hiring me and thanks to Stacy for writing such entertaining stuff for me to scribble. Rob mentioned we may do one here or there in the future, so keep your eyes and ears open.

And now on to the Texas/OU themed strip. Go Hogs.

Back in Town Again

Spookytown that is. It’s been many, many moons and a plethora (would you say I had a plethora?) of posts since I’ve given any update on Spookytown, the graphic novel I’m working on. Why the delay? The just-mentioned plethora of posts of course. Too many other things have taken priority over the book. Many of those things are paying things and they will always outrank my pet comic book projects. I wish I had an extra four hours a day. That’s all I ask for, I’m not greedy. Just four.

But I am making a conscience effort to work on it every day, even if it’s just drawing face. Anything to move it forward. So if you’re interested in the book and it’s progress, I am working it. It’s not dead. Undead, maybe, but not dead.

If you’re unfamiliar with Spookytown, just visit the website.

My Influence Map

On deviantART, fox-orian started an "influence map meme" and they’ve been popping up all over different artists’ websites. I don’t really put the “me” in “meme” that often, but each time I saw one of these, I couldn’t help but think how nice they looked and how cool it would be to do one myself. I know I’m bit late to the game, but I don’t care.

I knew it would be fun to make but I didn’t realize how hard it would be. Man, narrowing this group down was a challenge. Some harsh, harsh cuts were made. I could’ve done one three times this size.

To make it easier, I decided just put in people (or groups) that create. Not creations. For example, Matt Groening instead of the Simpsons. So that helped by eliminating particular movies and TV shows. And I decided mainly to focus on art and only have a few musicians and directors. Mainly it's comic artists and cartoonists.

I turned mine on it’s side to fit monitors better. Hope you like it. Make one for yourself if you haven't already.
