And if you live in the Minneapolis area, you can drop by Altered Esthetics Art Gallery (Quincy street in North Minneapolis) on Friday, November 1st 2013 at 7 pm for the “RockInkRoll” book release and art show. My contribution is a 2 page auto bio piece about how my Mom warned Wendy and I about the dangers of ‘Acid Rock’. It is actually for sale at the art show for only $30 bucks! Framed and everything!
It’s been a rough summer. Three months of kidney problems, and I still have pain. Trying to plug away on the new book when I can, but it seems to be more difficult than before. Then my computer took a shit. I finally got it running again, but for how long? So yesterday’s comic and today’s comic are unpainted pages from the new book. I’m about 40 pages past this stuff so far. I added the pink just because.
Right after SpringCon, at the end of May,I had to be rushed to the emergency room in intense pain. I knew what it was. Kidney stones. I had been hospitalized for them 13 years ago, and 10 years prior to that. I was very familiar with the standars remedies as well. What I didn’t know, is how is would disabled me for 2 months! Pain, blood, percosets; these have been my companions all summer. I have barely been able to draw anything. My hands shake terribly. Gratefully, the worst seems to be over for now. I am starting to recover. I have stopped taking the painkillers, and have started to work again on my auto-bio stuff. It’s difficult to physically draw right now until the shakes go away and my muscles strengthen again, but it’s funny how my creativity has exploded. I can’t show you anything right now, but I will tell you that I am up to page 68 on the direct sequel to “Kmart Shoes”, and I am trying hard to finish the book before FallCon.
