news update

Sorry the blog has had so many passing of great talent reported , that's the problem getting older the people that mean something to me are getting older too and in some cases dying before their time.

Any way on a happier note Tales of the Buddha before he got Enlightened has now a fan page on Facebook Tales Of The Buddha

I'm drawing a new adventure where Buddha helps out Santa which will be a 5 pager story again Alan Grant has written another very funny tale.
The Ebook collection of Buddha should be out next month by Renegade Arts Ent will keep you posted when it's out .

Hamlet for Classical Comics Hamlet Classical Comics book page  is rolling on the penciler David Lorenzo has about 20 pages to go , my layouts/ roughs and character designs can be found on this blog hamlet rough cut

went to the Bristol comic Expo last week in the U.K met up with some old and new friends , it was nice to put faces to people i communicate with on twitter.

My next convention will be the Glasgow Comic Con next month where i hope i'll be able to show goodies from ''Age of  Heroes'' a project i've been working on for some time ,press release soon. 


Another comic book legend passed away recently Tony Dezuniga Jonah Hex artistic creator , I grew up loving Tony's work on Savage Sword of Conan by Marvel , he drew the most beautiful women and had such a fantastic style, my brother would buy lots of b/w mags in the 70's and i got used to spotting certain artists styles i always enjoyed Tony's work, thanks for the entertainment sir and God bless.


When i was a teenager many many years ago i would read my comics playing music on the radio or tape recorder , i loved Donna Summer's music , her look, i really thought she was ''HOT STUFF'' the times my friends and i would disco dance to her music and enjoy the beat , such fun and energy back then happy care free days .
so sad to read this week that both Donna and Ernie both have passed away to cancer , my thoughts go out to their family and friends.
Ernie Chan was a brilliant inker, painter and artist his work on Conan, the Incredible Hulk, Batman shows how great he was, my brother used to collect Savage Sword of Conan , and Conan the Barbarian and King Kull which regularly had Ernie's stamp on them , he had a fantastic inking style and he worked really well with the masterful John Buscema .
I would spend hours looking and reading those wonderful comics dreaming of  far off places.
Donna and Ernie thanks for the entertainment and for being part of my life growing up.
God bless
