I am back in the full comic-ing grind, folks. Already have 3 weeks of comics in the buffer. Wait til you see where this missing-sock-tail-storyline goes; new untouched ground for me, writing wise. I’m also right in the midst of convention season, so my weekends are a busy flurry and then I’m right back to drawing comics! Barely time to get back on the workout/exercise routine I was hoping to solidify. And look at that… this weekend is….

Fanart to Celebrate my BIRTHDAY!

Maybe THIS is what Z&F really look like! Pretty buff lookin’ aliens!

Yup, August 13th I turned whopping 33 years old. I don’t feel 33. Not even sure what 33 is “supposed” to feel like. So, I guess I just feel no different than I did at 25, so who cares? I had cake, guilt-free. That’s all that matters. ;0)

Two weekends ago was the Allentown Mega Show, and my friend Don Smith (who ALSO has the same birthday!) handed me this awesome little alien doodle. Don’s a writer, you see, and the ongoing joke in the comics world is that writers can only really draw stick figures, so this is pretty dang impressive for “a writer”, LOL! I love the little alien tie. He’s all spiffy!

Thanks Don, for this fun alien-tastic doodle, and you’re welcome, for me allowing you share a birthday with me. *grins*


Anyone who has a facebook account, knows the insanity of birthdays in facebook land. I was PUMMELED with 180+ birthday wishes from friends, and while I appreciate them all, this one stood out and REALLY made me blush. You may remember my friend Marc Lapierre of Superfogeys. His daughter, Zoe, is a huge fan of the Abby’s Adventures kids book series I illustrate, and she has all the books! In fact, at the last New York Comic Con, she has 2 very specific instructions for her dad: Go meet Spiderman, and get the new Abby book! So, when he mentioned my birthday to her, she went ahead and whipped up this awesome fanart! While it’s not Z&F fanart, I still HAD to share with you folks!

Thanks so much Zoe, and Marc! You made my day that much happier!
