I have got to post those sketchcards that you have gotten for me. For those of you who are unaware, john h has very generously been collecting cards of Usagi drawn by other artists. He has given me almost 3 dozen of those cards by folks like Jill Thompson, Scott Morse, Steve Leialoha, Erik Larson, Geoff Darrow, Tim Sale, Jeff Smith, Eric Powell, Mark Schultz, David Petersen, Tony Harris, Kevin Nowlan, Brian Stelfreeze, and so many others.

I got to go to Spain with Michael Golden. He is one of the most interesting person in comics, though I would hate to have lived the life he had. He is a terrifically nice guy, and such a talent. I'm looking forward to it. Thank you, John.

The tip-in painting is an Usagi portrait, but very different than other portraits I have done. Curious to see what Diana's reaction will be.


I had e-mailed Editor Diana yesterday:
"I would be curious to hear what you think of the tip-in. Should I substitute it with another?"

Her answer:
"Hell no! It's magnificent! We all love it!!!!!!!!!!"

So, I guess it's approved.

I finished the outline for the two-part Return to Hell story. I am not all that satisfied with the conclusion, but I'll have about a month to mull it over before starting on the art.

Now I'll start thumbnailing part one (UY #30).

I'll also have to mow the lawn this week.

Nice work there John H, especially with Terry Moore... I was under the impression he rarely does any sketches or commissions (I know Kris has lamented this fact given she's a HUGE SiP fan). Look forward to seeing more...

Mayhem,

Terry Moore is one of the most approachable artists on the con circuit.

Most often he offers convention commissions. His at-home

commissions are quite rare and pricey.

Really? Because Kris asked him at San Diego CC two years ago about a commission and he said he wasn't doing them. Maybe he just chose not to that year perhaps then... I'll let her know, she might consider asking again this year...

Thumbnails for 130 are done. I'll start pencilling this afternoon. Hopefully, this issue will be finished in about 4 weeks.

I got approval on my WoW page, so will have to draw that as well. I hope to finish it by beginning of April.

No word on the Groo vs Conan story. Sergio says Mark has pages. I'm anxious to see them.

Two Spider-Man Sundays are scheduled to be delivered on Saturday. They need to be sent back to Stan on Monday.

The colors from the scan are not as intense as the original, but the final print looks fine. I was trying to post the actual tip-in, but Live Journal could not accommodate the format Cary sent it in as. This will be the first time I'll sign the tips with a silver pen.

Keep clicking on the image to enlarge it.
