Digging around through the Pile.

You magnificent, Bastards. You deserve this.
With the improving weather and the Previews cover, this isn't a half-bad Spring. I had this girlfriend who said that Spring was her favorite season; I instantly redoubled my contempt for it. There's not a thing robust about it; not like Autumn, my favorite season. But, I guess as one grows older and one steps up the medication to 200 mikes a day...Spring ain't so bad.
I am a little irked at Winters' brevity this year; there are people, PEOPLE, fucking everywhere. Normally these feeble beings would be holed-up for another 7 weeks; out of my way. Sigh.
Here's some stuff...

Below is a companion to an earlier entry; from the same story. Check out the other entry and compare the markings; there's a story "there" (in my head).

This is old, maybe about 10 years ago. Expect to see this colored. I'm fairly happy with the piece. It's rare these days that I get to indulge my quasi-scifi side, which is my heart-of-hearts. Look! A space anteater! Just where the phuck is this guy going to fish, I wonder...

From time to time I get a call from Alex (Ross) while he's in the throes of a project. This is a rejected design for "Kingdom Come".

Yet another cast-off from "Kingdom Come"; this is an "articulated" Batmobile. It didn't get used so this bitch is still mine, yo. I see one of you swipe this...I cut you. Dig?...Whoa, maybe I should go up to 250.

Great sketches Akey, but I've seen your studio, it's more like an excavation, than a dig...

- Who's gonna color your "Walking Tall" Aborigine ???

- I didn't know the "Amputee" was a Kingdom Come design... I just thought you were goin' through your "Boxing Helena" phase...

Well, if I can find out how to flat (this means tracking down a hard-to-find book) I'll take a crack at it. You're free to try. This was drawn WAY before the digital revolution in comics (kinda)...for me at least. So much more possible now.

Hey Andy!
That must be "Twiggers Holiday" you're asking about. Go to www.channel101.com. Then look in cancelled shows and you'll find the episodes. Also look at "Ringwald and Molly" which is by the same guy, but even freakier! How's life back in Newton?
