Holy crap, what happened to summer?!

Yeaaaah,....its been a while since I've posted. I know, I'm a fail. But it's not like I haven't been busy doing stuff. Let's see, what have I been up to? Well, I did a few shows this summer. In June I hit Wizard World Philly, in July I was at CONvergence, and in August I was at Wizard World Chicago. All great shows that wore me out.
I managed to get a few projects done. Saw the first issue Of Grimm get published. Waiting for pencils for issue 2, Bat is kinda slow. Hurry up dude!! Finished up the Marlow: River of Symbols graphic novel, and it saw print for SDCC. A wide release will be done for it in Jan/Feb of '12 according to Arcana, So I can't wait to see that. Am going to be finishing up a project for my pal Amber Delaney, aka Amber Unmasked. She's an East Coast cosplayer who does a lot of charity work for various things. SHe asked me to ink a 10 page story for a charity book coming out later this year. It's pretty fun so far.
The big comic project for me will be the return next year of my character,..Dr Goyle. I created him back in 99 with Mike Norton. We did a one shot at Arrow, and then an 8 page story for SLG a year later. He's been at the back of my mind for a while, itching to get out. Will, my editor at Alpha Dog, really pushed me to do a book for this year. So I thought about it, and made the decision to bring the Doc out of hiatus. I will be doing 4-6 issues, leaning more toward 6 right now. I will be writing, pencilling, inking, and possibly lettering. It wil be in color, and I hope to have a few issues ready for Philly next year, maybe even for Springcon in May. I'm really excited to do this project, and have enlisted some friends to do some pinups for each issue. Should be some good looking stuff!
On other fronts, I am moving.....again. Roomie decided not to renew the lease, and since the few hours I was getting at work have made it difficult to afford a place on my own around here, I needed another option. So I'm moving back home. Mom is looking to sell the house next year, and could use my help. So as of next weekend, September 10th, I will be once again back in Madison. I managed to get a transfer to a Best Buy store right across the street from where Mom works. This will make it great to carpool when our schedules are similar, and even better when the weather is bad. I'm sad about leaving friends and co-workers behind, abut I have oodles of friends in Madison who I haven't seen in 8-10 years that I look forward to seeing. This will also give me a chance to get debt paid off and actually save $$ for a possible move to the Twin Cities next year. We shall see what transpires.
So life once again is kinda crazy, but still good.
