To say I almost lost it when I heard the announcement, would be an understatment. I was just greatful no one was around at the 9-5 to see me poplocking (practicing for the day I'm called to save a community center.....) for joy. The Glyphs are the one of the most prestigious awards which the comics community provides, and to be nominated for two awards is awesome.

Keep your fingers crossed.

-Waiting on edits back for a client comic project. More on that later.

-Sean is kicking major butt with the Route 3 thumbnails, and now we're moving to the pencil stage. This is my baby, and I'm just glad it's in the hands of a talented/gifted artist like Sean.

-Wifey and the dog are doing well, for which I'm enternally grateful. I thank the Lord above for blessing me with her on a daily basis. I love her like crazy.

-CDC project is coming along nicely. When that hits I think people will be really satisfied with the end result. Once again, just happy to be a part of the project.

-Completed my first/ finished animation script for a client project a few weeks ago. Hopefully I'll get an ok to show that.

-Also spreading the word about our Indiegogo campaign for the graphic novel adaptation of William Satterwhite's "Stealth" . Head here for more info.

All in all life is good, grand even.
