Yeah, some of my site regulars know that I’ve always taken pride in having monthly updates, which I honored most of the time. But just as Rich Lane and I started to construct the new pages, my pal Sal (Velluto) came a callin’ asking me to help him out again on the Phantom (“The Phantom: Johnny Hotwire- The Outlaw Days”) for Sweden’s Egmont Publishing.
This took me out of the picture for 6 weeks and just as a finished that commercial artist contact Jeff Lavezoli (whom I met at Pittsburgh Comic Con a few years ago and for those familiar with my commission gallery knows I did some ‘Bryant Man’ work inking him) emailed me and hired me to ink a Christmas card assignment for a company (don’t worry, it’ll eventually show up in the same-mentioned gallery). And I’ve been playing catch-up ever since around the house (holiday greeting cards, taxbook, shopping, appointments, etc.) and with The Inkwell Awards regarding the newly appointed ’10 Nomination Committee, new site additions, and boy, you won’t believe what’s been in the works for our 3rd year- no exaggeration!
And I’ll be tackling commissions in a few days. But this site will take up much of my time. Now that the Bio, Credits, Contributors, and Web Links sections are done, Rich and I are now eagerly working on getting this Homepage and News/ solicitations format all laid out. Following that we’ll tackle the remaining sections one at a time in no particular order: the Store, Photos, Special Features, and the prolific Galleries. So be patient and I’ll keep you posted and before long I’ll be back to monthly updates as we enter my site’s 10-year anniversary in 2010. In the meantime, feel free to post comments and ask questions. Do you have any suggestions or requests? And happy holidays to all!!!
