Awake o Rama (Stumping for the box office)

"Awake" written and directed by Joby Harold opens this weekend. I highly recommend everyone see it.

And that's not just because I know and idolize Joby and used to work for the co-producer.

It's because it's a damn fine piece of filmmaking.

And it'll make you think Hayden ain't that bad.

And it'll make you wonder where Lena Olin has been all your life.

And it'll make you never want that heart surgery you were dying to have.

So, if it's playing near you this weekend, go see it. If it's not, get in your car and drive to where it is playing. Or get someone who lives where it is playing, to see it for you and tell you all about it.

Cheers for Awake!

I Did Had Fun Writing It

Script is done.

Notions and ideas for Volume 2 are swirling.

Knee deep in a new project, soon to be announced.

Not sure when our release date is.

If I could figure out how to do something like the following video in comic book form, it would be really amazing.

Busby Berkely. A revolutionary of a different sort.

My favorite thing about these things is that they always start with a curtain raising. As if those ridiculously complicated geometric synchronized dances (later in the video) would make half as much sense seen live and without the benefit of a high angle camera and a damn clever editor.

I guess what I'm saying is, "Eat it, live theater."

Up the Bags... the blog is back.

WOW! Where have we been?!

Well I'll tell you. Right here. Working on whats bound to be your new favorite graphic novel, Labor Days: Vol. One; A Tale of Comedic Miss-adventures and Guns. I feel ashamed that i haven't paid enough attention as of late to the ol' LD blog. Ironicly, its because I've been paying so much darn attention to the actual book.

As I type this i realized i haven't scanned hardly any art into my computer and my scanner is at the studio, and my cozy little butt is sitting on the couch at home. So for now I'll leave you with the comic pages we used to pitch Labor Days to Oni press. I think these might be pushing almost three years old. Sheesh!

I also got a haircut today. Not as short as i wanted, but still awesome.
