Every year as a child we got the Sears "Wishbook". Inside this precious catalog that my sister and I spent so much time memorizing was the beginning of my collection. My introduction to Superheroes.
Every year there was a box for me under the tree. It was solid and ridiculously heavy for my little hands . Within that package was 50-100 comics. All Marvel and all Superheroes. This was my initiation into the Avenger, Shield, X-men, X-factor, Excalibur and many more.
It was back in those days that I devoured Conan with the same veracity I took in Spiderman. It was the art and the stories back then. Not just the characters that were popular at the time or deemed "collectible" like it would be later in my life.
I would organize the stack according to which I wanted to read the most based on cover art. After a while i knew where my ilk was. I remember having a stack of Spiderman, Iron Man and Daredevil. Those were my first favorite comics.
We didn't have a place to get them in town for a long time so it was Christmas that fueled the fire year to year.
Later on in 1989 I was 11 and Tim Burton introduced me to Batman and it was all over.
The begining though was the Sears Wishbook and my little stack of comics.
Thanks Sears, Thanks Mom.

I've not been able to do a whole lot of personal work here lately. I have several things planned but I just never have the time theses days. Between my day job and art it's pretty hectic.
I'm crazy thankful for the blessing of the work I have had this year.

A friend of mine has a very funny series of videos he does at his home studio. Thats right, he doesn't mess with "web cams" he built a studio next to his house.
You can check him out here on Blogspot at Weird Hollow. Check him out.
I recently put a design together for him cuz his stuff is just so much fun
When my best friend JB lived in Warrensburg MO I went to visit him. His room mate Matt, a pretty cool guy and fellow artist had a coffee table art book called "The Art of Modern Rock". Just 400+ pages of rock posters and fliers collected over the years. As well as interviews with the artists and profiles.
Just an amazing book. The most motivational book I have ever held. 10 minutes looking at it and you want to draw or paint or create, just get something out there.
After months of desperately wanting it I finally broke and picked it up for my studio.
I can't say enough about how inspirational this book is. You can get it at bookstores or online at
Its been a while since I posted on here. I hate to get behind.
I've been pretty busy with the new assignment from my client and regular work at Blockbuster.
Been a pretty good 2010 so far. I could do better but I could also do much work.
God has really helped me with a couple issues, not that I haven't made a couple mistakes in that area but it going to be ok.
I need to get more art done. I have an amazing new set-up now but posting pics wouldn't do me much good. Everything is black and kinda blends together.
I find that I am having motivational problems here lately. Just cant seem to get up and get to it.
Lots of weirdness with the family right now. Although its about to get tons better, so I am thankful for that.
Not Lin and I mind you, we are still cool. Going on 10 years of cool.
Well I had better get back to cracking on this assignment.
