I haven’t really been living up to my promise to blog more often. Unfortunately, this post is just a lame attempt to “appear” to have fresh content this week. I don’t have too much to say right now.
Well, that’s not exactly true. I have things to say, but not much time to devote to the blog right now. I’ve too many things to get done before the ol’ Comic-Con next month.
If you look at my brother’s blog, you know that I’ve been to a couple of funerals lately. They’ve given me some food for thought. You know—about mortality, family and stuff like that. As a result, I’ve started keeping a journal. That’s because I don’t like writing about personal stuff here on the blog. Sorry. Way it goes. I’m just a big tease.
Speaking of death, I’m disturbed by last week’s death of online writer/interviewer Daniel Robert Epstein. Daniel wrote for several websites including Newsarama, Suicide Girls and others. He was a top-notch interviewer of people in the entertainment industry, and no, I didn’t know him personally. I admired his work, and recently started corresponding with him via email. We sent him an advance copy of my manga. Anyway, I haven’t heard any details, but Daniel died last week at the shockingly young age of 32. My heart goes out to his wife, family and friends.
I guess that’s about it for now. Sorry if I’ve depressed you all. Maybe I’ll post another random page of art in a day or so. Meanwhile, here are some "interesting" factoids…
