Bit Dead Here but Keeping Busy

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 9, 2017, 9:42 AM
Sorry about being a bit Dead here.

Last weekend where A bunch of great artist and myself were at the City of Hope Drawing for the kids at their annual event. This year I drew mostly cars because I had a CARtoons Magazine shirt on so that became my thing this year.

I had the shirt on cause I just finished my first (of hopefully) many pages for them. It is printing This coming July in Issue 10. Of I've been doing some brainstorming for that which I can't really share at this point.

It's also the end of the year so with 2 kids in school and my wife being a teacher it alway is a busy time of year. My son finished middle school this year which is great but makes my feel a bit old.

So I plan to keep Elsewhere going but not totally sure what I doing after this story resolves itself in a couple of weeks. I want to get back to the rework of the existing story for a printing but not really sure if/ how to share those as I go.


  • Listening to: Mostly 80's and Oldies

OK true believers, What Elsewhere strips do you like the most? The everyday live stuff or the big adventure comics? Looking at old strips and am amazed at how good they were at doing nothing (But being funny at the same time).
