Ch-check it out kiddos! [Oct. 14th, 2006|02:45 pm]
It's fastly approaching...that's right, my independant comic book debut! Check out this link to ACRONYM Comics...I wrote issue two of Last Writes, their on-going horror anthology. It's a short piece called "You think you've seen everything..." Matthew Zeilinger did the artistic duties. You can see sketches and the first page (sans lettering) at the link. Did I mention how excited I am? I've been waiting for this day! I'll keep you all updated on the exact release date, but rest assured, you can savor this booka nd all its gory glory this holiday season!

As I crash and burn [Sep. 17th, 2006|03:29 am]
It's been a very long first two weeks of school. It's going to continue to be a long, long, looooong semester, but it is my deepest belief/hope that when it is over I will emerge somehow stronger despite what I'm guessing will be a mental and physical exhaustion that I've never experienced. Things are going well, but already things are taking their toll. It is a fear of mine that I will completely fall apart, a fear which I would go into further detail about , but I just dozed off while typing...oh well. Now to sleep.

Churned out three articles today, started illustrations and confirmed my hatred for Tom Goes to the Mayor. Remembered how amazing Michael Keaton was in Beetlejuice and put all fears for this season of The Venture Bros. to rest. Now bedtime approaches, but I'll probably finish reading my Y-The Last Man tpb before I crash.

Still waiting on the big news. Haven't heard back either way, still trying not to get the hopes up but who am I kidding...

though lots of folk think he's a poon, i kind like cyke... [Aug. 10th, 2006|06:09 pm]
You scored as Cyclops. Codename: Cyclops
Full Name: Scott Summers
Mutant Powers: Optic blasts of intense light-beams.

Scott Summers was an early follower of Xavier's dream and a mutant that suffered all his life.As a young boy, Scott and his brother, Alex Summers, were with his parents on a plane of his dad. But then, a SHIAR ship destroyed the plane, capturing both Scott´s mother and father. Just before being kidnapped, Scott´s father, Major Christopher Summers, gave a parachute to his sons and dropped them out of the plane. The ´chute didn´t open, and Scott first manifested his mutant powers, as he used his optic blasts to slow down the fall. The boys were found in a forest, sleeping. Alex was adopted by a family, but Scott was sent to an orphanage, that was owned by Nathaniel Essex, a.k.a. Mr. Sinister. Sinister discovered the genetical potencial that lied within Scott, and began to make experiments on him. Many years later, Charles Xavier found Scott by using Cerebro, and took him away from the orphanage. Before he left, Sinister took away Scott's memories of his time there.

Cyclops was a member of the original five X-men, and there he fell in love with another teammate, Marvel Girl, or Jean Grey. Eventually, he met his brother, Alex, who now went by the name of Havok, and later his father, who now called himself Cosair and was leader of an alien vessel that fought in space.

so, to elaborate on the other day [Jan. 28th, 2006|08:09 pm]
So, to start off, me and brian went to the star wars exhibit at the museum of science. it was great, we took the train in, walked to the museum and BAM! were emersed in star wars props, models and costumes. a large part of the exhibit was comparing real world technologies to star wars stuff. for example, next to the display case that housed Darth Vader's suit were several dislpays of artificial limbs and organs (fake hearts, stuff to restore hearing and sight, etc.) Shit, they're even developing this device that is surgically installed into a diabetic and it will automatically secrete insuline into the body when it's needed! i dont even have diabetes and i want one! also, did you know that anti-matter engines are a real thing and not just from TV? and that a starship with an anti matter engine could go 2/3 teh speed of light but would be more than half the length of texas!? anyways, the exhibit was awesome, and we managed to escape the gift shop with our wallets still full (though our hands were each short one lightsabre).

after we left the museum we called steve...but he was out of town and wouldn't be back till later.
so we called alex...but he was at work and wouldnt be out till later.

so we decided that at a little after 3, we'd head home. We got to north station and saw that teh train we wanted was leaving in 10 minutes. lucky us! what timing! only here's the thing...it WASN'T the train we wanted.

assuming that the commuter rail worked like the subway, we saw a train bound for beverly. beverly is on the way to rowley, so it probably runs right through. it didn't. we got off at beverly.

so we called dan. he didn't answer.
we called jamie. she didnt answer.
we went to dan's apartment, he wasn't home, and we left a message with his room mate.
and so we continued to wander. after a little bit, we called lynn and asked her to come get us. then we bumped into jamie briefly on her way out of class. then dan called us back, which was nice cause we hadn't heard from dan in a while and were starting to wonder "should be hang posters up all over down town beverly? HAVE YOU SEEN THIS BOY!?!?!" so we met up with dan, went to a coffee shop and waited for lynn. then lynn took us all home and lnn and i headed to to networking night in allston.

en route to allston, my cold switches from cold to flu-like and i get VERY pukey. i was okay for a while, it came and went, but when it hit, it hit hard. i also got us lost. it seems i can't drive anywhere to further our comic careers because i always get lost. funny story actually, we were heading to the new england comics in allston. when we got lost, we some how managed to find a DIFFERENT new englad comics (there are several branches) and waste four bucks on parking because in my infinite wisdom i saw the store, looked at an unsure lynn and yelled "It's GOTTA be it!" it wasn't. my ego is still tending to its bruise.

FINALLY, after asking the clerk at the wrong NEC how to get to teh one in allston, we got to teh one in allston. it was neat, a lot of people, the ACRONYM guys...a good time by all. We introduced ourselves and people remembered teh name of our book! some people, total fucking strangers even recognized the artwork because they had seen our site! itw as a good feeling. Eric, for ACRONYM, was really psyched tos ee some new artwork and when he said "Man, i can't WAIT to see this book!" i was on top of the world...then the flu hit. HARD. for a while i was dizzy, thought i was gonna pass out, wanted to barf, you name it. none of this helped me pitch any ideas, or build up "Erin Go Braugh." One dude asked me what it was about and i TOTALLY tanked on selling it to him because i though i was gonna drop dead. needless to say, i didn't get any artist interested in either of my other two scripts...mostly because i didn't talk to many people. I did talk to one artist though, and she was interested in a writer to do dialogue for an idea she already has begun working on. i told her i'd be interested in something like that and we exchanged e-mails. that was as productive as i got, but oh well...maybe next time i'll be in better health and can make better use of the situation. until then, i have a zombie survival guide to go read.

my new favorite sandwich is roast beef and cheese on a toasted onion bagel with spicy brown mustard.
