The Big Launch - Comic Book Tattoo.

Been inking, and writing, and doing a lot of walking still.

Up side to the insanity of visiting Toronto is all the exercise, reminds me to keep it going at home. With the always present list of things to do when your freelance, it easy to forget to get off your ass sometimes.

And of course the net always calls to be fed. To bad it doesn't take walks and crap itself. Been contemplating getting a dog friend lately.

Didn't get to the big SDCC this year. Had thought I would but changed my mind. Timing was just not suitable - need to get a lot done this month.

But Damn, it would have been cool to have been there for the official big launch of Comic Book Tattoo, Tori Amos's monster anthology book!

The photo here of a panel is by the K-Squared: They have a nice full report posted about the panel at the con, with Amos, Rantz, and 6 of the contributors. And the Tori Amos signing later. And there is a clip of the panel posted here on Flicker by, dug up by Russell Lissau.

There's also some cool shots up on Rantz flicker stream. And K. Star St.Germain posted the first page from what looks like a stunning story
here. And i love this shot Sarah Jaffe took of herself with the book. There's a set here of one of the signings. And bellow is Rantz with some folks who posted this on their feed, proud owners of a limited edition. I believe word is everything that went with them to SDCC is gone, all sold out! There's a lot of buz on this thing.

Quite excited to see this thing, been kind of holding out in an act of perverse denial of reward i suppose. :)

I hope my story printed well. Kind of afraid to see how it looks along side some of the other stuff in the previews!

ED: New Stuff.
1st Review of the book.

Posed here on Bust. Dug up by Derek.

And CBR has, a TV channel...? First i've here of this...

There's that link to Star's work, and mine & Mark's up on Myspace, you also get this sneak peek on CBR, these on, this with Jennifer M. Contino on the the PULSE, a publisher's weekly article here, and does it's thing here with more lovely art, AOL/Spinner has a huge interview and article with Rantz, Tori, David Mack, Colleen Doran, and Ted McKeever here.

Got a musical crush

Still in Toronto for another day, but soon I'll be back at work. In the mean time though....


After the con, i was able to finally catch Ronley Teper & co preforming @the Tranzac in Toronto Live. This is a band/performer i've been following for a little while now, found her via myspace, my cousin plays with her sometimes. you can check her out here.

Also lots of links on youtube with the vid, check them ALL out. :)

The great thing was that i wanted to see this show but forgot the day of about it, lost in Kensington market reminiscing w old friends. Made some new ones too. Then me and john walked up to Bloor on Brunswick to get some sushi, and lo there we were passing the Tranzac! Ronley was out side and we said hello, got the stage time and grabbed a great din before the show. Nice night.

So, want a bit more?

Exclusive preview of Upside Down

So as i was saying, here we go.

Thanks to Tori and Rantz, we are very honored to present Mark and I's upside down interpretation of Upside Down [vid]

It's been posted on MySpace Comic Books site today as a preview for the book. You can read it all there! :)

Mark and I are working on an interview with each other to be posted soon to go with this.

This was a great short story to work on, I'm very happy with how the collaboration with Mark tuned out, very excited about this one.

Comic Book Tattoo is going to be an amazing showcase book, i haven't read the other stories yet, but i've seen lots of the pages here and there - the book looks amazing!

This is the first of three anthologies I'm going to be in between now and December, what a way to kick things off.

a film about the roerich garden project in montreal

Found this on you tube about a project by a local artist i know. Emily Rose Michaud & company built it in the winter. Miss Janet made this excellent 6 min doc about the day Emily and a team of volunteers set it up together over the course of one very cold day. The Garden lived on, you can keep up with their progress here. It's pretty damn cool.
