So... I just turned 50, finally.
Thank you all for your birthday wishes. I'm not really into birthdays to be honest, you loose interest somewhere in your 30's. I'm one of the few people who likes aging, I enjoy the process of slowing down over the decades. I feel more balanced and content than I ever did as a youth. I'm looking forward to experiencing the fifties.

Meanwhile I have had my head down preparing reprints for two of my old comic stories.
The original Zooniverse series being one of them, Rex Vectar being the other (Rex was only published in Australia). I have also been working on a new Zooniverse series with all new art.

Teaching is not something I want to do, I'd much rather get on with my own projects. The the 5 day class was an experiment to see how teaching could be done over the internet should I decide to pursue it. Thank you to those who participated.
The 5 Day Class offer is now closed

I'd better get back to it, thank you for your support and comments. I'm glad DA has given me the chance to show a fraction of my hard work and connect me to the shows that I designed for. Plus it's been helpful for me to bitch about my experiences in Hollywood. Thank you for letting me get it off my chest.

I find your kind of work to be quite inspiring, considering for how long you've been into art designing and the such. Happy birthday.

Apparently when I was a toddler I drew while being wheeled around in the pram. Happy to share :)

Meeting you here is one of the best experiences I got out of joining DA.
