News and Updatesâ€¦

Itâ€™s a fairly generic title, but the long and short of it is that Iâ€™ve been busy. The first week of the new academic quarter started off with a bang last Monday, and Iâ€™ve been going full tilt with coursework prep for the past two weeks.
I havenâ€™t been blogging as much, mostly because I donâ€™t feel like I have much to say. Therefore, most of my blog posts of late have been illustrations Iâ€™ve been working on.
Iâ€™m really liking the new setup I have in my office / studio. The extra table I bought last month has given me ample room to work on. It was a good investment. The replacement (#3) Samsung 305T seems to be holding up well so far, as well.
These days, Iâ€™m a regular on the Art & Story Alive podcast (which tapes live every Monday afternoon at 6PM EST). Itâ€™s been a true honor for me to serve as a co-host on their show. Iâ€™ve added a link button on the side bar that will take you directly to the Art & Story website.
The new Tuesday / Thursday update seems to be working much better for my schedule. Going at a slower pace has given me more time to tweak the comics and have time on the side for other things Iâ€™ve wanted to do. Compared to 4 strips a week, 3 strips a week is a peace of cake.
I wanted to throw out a few plugs and cool links Iâ€™ve found, that have been long overdue. In no particular order, they are:
MOFcomic, by John Bogenshutz. John has a single panel â€˜toon that made me giggle on more than one occasion.
Kuler. This Adobe site is a great place to find and download custom color swatches created by other designers.
Get Clicky. My site stat program of choice. The number of features and the level of metrics this service has blows Google Analytics away.
Oh, and Zach draws a little comic called Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, which you may have heard ofâ€¦
Thatâ€™s about it for now. Thanks for reading!
