Mike Hogue on G4 Tech TV

Mike Hogue, the talented animator I recruited for Insanely Twisted Shadow Puppets, is becoming quite a TV star!

He's been a regular guest of the show Call for Help on G4 Tech TV, teaching the masses how to use the Flash animation software in a series called Flash 101.

Thanks Mike for plugging on the show!

Commission for Bud Plant

Last September, Nancy and I had the pleasure of having Bud Plant and his lovely wife Ann visit our house and studio. I've always been a huge fan of Bud's catalog. Actually, one of my goals when I started publishing was to be featured in Bud's catalog!

We gave them the tour, showed them some of my work in progress, and we finished the evening at the Boundary Bay Brewery where we had drinks and a delicious meal.

A few weeks later, I received an email from Bud's Marketing Coordinator, Carolina Stewart, asking me if I would be willing to provide a design for the large envelope they use to send out catalogs to their international and new customers. Artists that have been featured in the past include Brian Froud, William Stout, Mark Schultz and Gary Gianni. I was flattered and delighted to oblige.

The Krah Khronicles

When I created the characters of "Krah, the Loudest Band in the Universe" for my comic series ZED, my pal Steve Rolston took a huge liking in them. I always liked the characters myself and had a vague concept for a spinoff series called "The Krah Khronicles". I told Steve about it and the next thing I knew, he'd written a wonderful story for a 4-issue mini-series; a crazy tale packed with fun and imagination. And to top it off, he'd drawn a cover, some sample pages, and a set of model sheets of the whole ensemble cast. Check out some of the work here.

We're currently shopping for a publisher and hope to have a signed deal by next summer.

Steve is a major talent in the comic industry. He received an Eisner Award for his work on "Queen & Country" and he's currently doing the art for the prestigeous "The Escapist" series published by Dark Horse. You can check his website here. You can also view the pinup he did for ZED #6 here.

The Bellingham Herald

So much for remaining anonymous in Bellingham. My local Newspaper just printed an interview with yours truly in today's edition. They have an on-line version (minus the picture) which you can read here.
