I went looking for pages large enough to color, and found a few by Joe Flood from The Cute Girl Network. I didn't so much finish as hit the wall on time limit.

Hey, I know I haven't been drawing a lot lately. I just sketched a little for the first time since Charlotte Comicon, which was at least 2 weeks ago. I feel like I have a decent reason for my lack of productivity.

I took the position of Editor-In-Chief over at, a comics and collecting website that covers news and reviews. I really enjoy discovering new comics and sharing them with other fans. I also enjoy taking my years of education and experience and pointing out when a comic that's being hyped really shouldn't be bothered with, or that a comic needs more eyes on it. One of the more recent decisions that I made was to stop posting solicitations from Marvel and DC. Other publishers send out their solicitations with previews, which are something worth sharing with fans. Our job is not to sell Marvel and DC, but to provide that voice of a friend saying, "You have got to check this comic out," or "Dude, do NOT waste your money on that."

However, I am getting back into drawing, and meeting some old obligations in the near future. My day job has me hitting the bed earlier than I used to, so my drawing time is limited, especially with my new responsibilities on the web site. I am also looking to put together a couple of books and put the Jet-Pack Jenny stories that have been done out in digital format, but it requires a little formatting, which takes time.

Once again, I have a lot of balls in the air.

Hey there, it's Wade from the comic con. Just wanted to say it was nice meeting you and I'm enjoying looking though the book I got and reading the stories behind your different drawings. (and of course, thank you again for the sketch of Ki, she looks wonderful.)

It was nice meeting you, too, man. I'm glad that you appreciate the book so much. I really enjoy sketching at shows. Hopefully, I'll see you again at another show!

I'll gladly be there. The whole thing actually motivated me a little to draw things I normally don't. (Cursed feet, why must you and your cousin "the hands" be so difficult? :D)

Great meeting you in Hickory today. Awesome gallery.
jdstanford Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2011
You too! Your work is really good and reminds me of Jim Mahfood a little. It's really good. I look forward to seeing you draw some comics.

Hay, I checked out your site. I like your work!
Also, I read in your journal about the redundant eyeball panel. It made me smile. It bothers me as well. Years ago at the San Diego Comic-Con I got a chance to chat with John Romita Jr. He told me how much he hated that kind of panel and how it usually had nothing to do with the story. I find it funny that the symbol of the very comic book convention we were attending is a close-up of an eye!
