New Comics!

Two new comics that feature my work that I want to let you know about. One is Potlatch #7, an anthology published by Angry Dog Press. I drew a story entitled "Kissed by a Muse", which was written by Chad Lambert. The book has actually been out for a couple of months now, but I've been holding out posting about because I was waiting on copies of the book that I could sell at cons. Well, I'm still waiting on copies of the freaking thing. I have two comp copies, but apparently the publisher is having a hard time dealing with the printer. Sounds like a sucky printer to me, but what do I know? Anyway, he's working on it and I hope to get some soon.

The other book is a collection of pin-ups done by various artists for Scotty Story's book Johnny Saturn. It's a nice mix of different styles. I drew Madame Fishnet, as noted several posts back, and Scott like it so much that he used it for the cover. I was very flattered by that. Scott's a really nice guy, very genuine. If you are "Shades of Blue" fan from back in the day, you might remember that he drew the Marcus fantasy issue (#6). Go check out his stuff.

Dog Food Productions in the Finals Again

Somehow, the judges of the Video Association of Dallas 24 Hour Video Race have let DFP slip through to the finals for the 2nd year in a row. Last year we actually managed to nab 3rd place in our division. I'm not sure if we'll be that lucky again this year or not. The competition is pretty strong. Our film is entitled "Community Service" and this years race requirements were:

Theme: Twist of Fate
Location: Anywhere a sport is played
Prop: A key
Line of dialogue: "What's this going to cost me?"

24 Hour Video Race 2008

For the 5th year (well, not in a row), me and my cohorts from Dog Food Productions are entering the Video Association of Dallas 24 Hour Video Race. If you don't know what that is... teams of filmmakers race to make a 5 minute (or shorter) film in 24 hours. We meet at a central location at midnight this Friday and are given elements that we have to incorporate into the final film. A theme, a line of dialogue, a prop and a location. We have to meet back at that location before midnight Saturday, tape in hand. Last year we won third in our division. Our only goal is to finish on time and make a funny film. Placing or winning is just icing on the cake. But We like icing.
