Discipline is the key to working for yourself. Sometimes, that means keeping regular business hours. That can be really tough when you're your own boss because there's very little fear of you firing yourself for being late.

THANK YOU


I'd like to send glorious hugs and kisses Danielle for coming down to Rockville and driving me up to and back from New Jersey; massive bear hugs and kisses to Dani and Bill for hosting us, feeding us, and letting us sleep on their couch; badass mother fu--SHUTYOMOUTH hugs and kisses to Chris of Wildpig Comics for hosting the signing and selling me all sorts of excellent graphic novels; sweet tooth hugs and kisses to Gary, the Fleen guy, whom I finally met in person who also came bearing gluten free mini cheese cakes for all four of us at the signing; master of disguise hugs and kisses to Phil Chan, Master of Disguise, for driving up all the way from Delaware to hang out with us for the day; and finally, big sloppy hugs and kisses to everyone who came out to see us! Apparently, driving an hour to a comic shop is "down the street" for you Jersey folk. Hells yeah!

Oh, and my face and stomach thank Charlie's Hot Dogs for the massive Italian hot dog thing I got. Roasted potatoes, peppers, onions, spicy mustard, and two hotdogs in a massive pocket of bread. Um. YES! ALWAYS!

I had an absolute blast and would love to come back for more. Like when I get book 2 out sometime in 2013. Oh man, it'd be so fun to do a little mini tour and visit friends and sign comics and eat foods!

ALLY



Hmmm... guess I beat Kane.

PANEL 2

Ally walks up to the table where Bodie's sitting with her laptop bag slung over her shoulder.

BODIE



Looks like it. You hear anything from him?

ALLY



Nope. You think he's taking this seriously?

PANEL 3

Bodie gestures to Ally who takes out her laptop.

BODIE



Well, he gets easily distracted. Especially when he's dating.

ALLY



Oh.

PANEL 4

Kane is slumped over his work desk sleeping. Around his desk are paints, brushes, and an vinyl toy in progress.

BODIE (CAPTION)



It's alright. If it becomes a problem, he'll get his act together as soon as we say something. Besides, there's a lot of non-design stuff we can deal with while we wait.

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!

I've spent a month with the iPad Pro and have some thoughts on what types of creators will find this to be a useful tool. This would have been a very different review without the reveal of iPadOS this past week.

Please take my thoughts with many, many, MANY grains of sand. I don't have other devices to compare the Pro to so it's not a very thorough review in my mind. But I try to answer the question, "What type of creator is the iPad Pro for?"
