A big "Thank You" goes out to writer/author/animator/teacher Abby Goldsmith for co-hosting the latest Engine! We discuss writing and how it differs from other forms of storytelling like movies and comics. Topics include 2001 A Space Odyssey, Stephen King's IT and even Wikipedia... Piqued your interest?

Shifting gears...

I'm currently finishing up THE DEATH'S HEAD TRANSMISSION, but shifted gears the other day and did some painting... and it was really enjoyable! Sometimes taking a break from one project to work on another is just what the doctor ordered to keep one's creative energies going strong! Just something to keep in mind the next time your creative "fires" start to wane!

Here's a couple more pages of the graphic novel I'm working on. I'm in the scripting phase, (using the Marvel method, I illustrated the story first and am scripting last) I'm having a blast and am just hoping that "Blast" is transmitted to the audience! Boom!
