“???” -or- The Road to Isla Esmerelda (an epilog of sorts)

Thanks so much for reading in 2009; I really appreciate it. Hope you all have a wonderful 2010 – I know I’m looking forward to it!

“We’re here!” -or- The Road to Isla Esmerelda (pt. 12 of 12)

At last – they made it! Touchdown is next week, then it’s into the heart of the island!

If you celebrate the holiday, I hope you have a merry Christmas; if you don’t, I hope you at least get a couple of days off from work…

“Please ensure your tray tables are in the upright position” -or- The Road to Isla Esmerelda (pt. 11 of 12)

… and that ends the closest thing to decompressed storytelling I’ll probably ever do. And even it had three ongoing stories! Hope you enjoyed this little digression. Next week: land ho!

“The break of dawn” -or- The Road to Isla Esmerelda (pt. 10 of 12)

Hope you’re all staying warm today – the snow coming down outside of my studio makes me want to go on vacation to Isla Esmerelda … or better yet, a real Caribbean island!

“Downs n’ ups” -or- The Road to Isla Esmerelda (pt. 7 of 12)

Funny how that paced out, with Watusi falling down and Emmett floating up. If I didn’t know better, I’d almost think I planned it like that…

“Comin’ through!” -or- The Road to Isla Esmerelda (pt. 6 of 12)


A big hello to everyone who visited with me at the past weekend’s Comic Book I-Con (and to you returning readers, as well) – thanks for checking out my strip! I had a great time at the show; all the staff were super-friendly and made me feel like a superstar! Thanks to Mike Sullivan, Bobby Bierly, Bill Hook, the 501st Legion, and the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man for keeping things lively at our end of the hall!

“A wake up call” -or- The Road to Isla Esmerelda (pt. 5 of 12)

strip026Looks like the stories within the story are headed somewhere after all (the center tier reads better in conjunction with the center of last week’s strip, by the way)! Check back next week to see what’s in store for our travelers – in the mean time, here’s a little Halloween comic I had the pleasure of drawing for my friend Brien Wayne Powell. It’s called “Frankenstein’s Wrestler”, and I was pretty happy with it. Hope you enjoy!

P.S. – I forgot to remind you that you can see me in person at this Saturday’s Comic Book I-Con in Altoona, Iowa. Mention you’ve been following the strip and I’ll have some sort of freebie for you! Plus on Sunday, you can bid on my original artwork at the Douglas County AIDS Project’s Red Ribbon Art Auction. If you can’t make the event, you can still get a peek at my painting donated to the event – it’s in the Prairie Pond Studio & Bead Company’s storefront at 809 Mass Street (along with other art up for auction)!

strip025While our intrepid air travelers continue on their way towards Isla Esmerelda, I’ve been busy at the drawing table completing the latest (and long overdue) Watusi digest comic!
