I hope everyone’s having a good Monday night. Did you all enjoy the Oscars? I could really have done without the people standing on stage waxing poetic about each nominee, the entire dance segment and the fact that no film clips were shown during one of my favorite awards – “Best Cinematography.” Maybe that’s the artist in me, and no one else cares, but for me, the cinematography makes the film. Of course, my choice for “Best Film” was “District 9,” and we sort of knew it wasn’t going to win, but we still held on to some hope of it until the fat lady sang.

As some of you may recall, I started a painting during a charity event for WildClaw Theatre, my favorite horror theater group in Chicago. They held an event called “Dance of the Demented” with a live deejay, live models, a burlesque show and more. For the artists who attended along with me, it was a lot of fun. So I started this painting, and I’m making progress and I just wanted to show you where I am since you last saw it, so here it is:

I hope you all were able to check out the course I’m teaching in San Diego this summer, Comix Academy, along with my friends Scott Hampton, Christopher Moeller, John vanFleet and Durwin Talon, with a special guest appearance from Mike Mignola. If you can join us, sign up now because seating is limited and the price goes up April 30th.

This weekend I will be at MegaCon in Orlando, and for my Florida friends, fans and colleagues, I look forward to reconnecting with all of you there. If there’s anything in particular you see for sale on my site that you would like me to bring along so you can see it in person, please let me know.

I hope you all have a great week. I will post more art as I make more progress.

Thanks for reading,

On Saturday, I will be doing a free oil painting demonstration for Celebrity Chiropractor Dr. G (he does the Emmys, Grammys, Oscars backstage, etc.) for the “Make a Wish” foundation. This will be in the parking lot at the corner of Butterfield Road & Naperville Road in Wheaton, IL. I’ll be there from noon to 2 p.m., so drop by & see me. Bring your comics if you would like me to sign them.

If you’re in the great Plano area and you love anything Star Wars related, this will be a fun show for you.

I hope you’ve seen my Star Wars covers for Dark Horse. If so, let me know what you think of them.

Thanks for reading, everyone,
