Finally, an update!

Been neglecting the blog, but I’ve been kind of falling behind on a lot of other things lately too. I finally finished a couple of commissions, and more importantly, I got done with the end of year 3 story arc. While it’s only three strips, the panel count is more like five or six and it’s drug everything else down to a screeching halt creatively. Hopefully I can get back to drawing happy stuff for a while.

Also managed to catch “Nosferatu” over at the Capitol theatre on Saturday. Kind of blows my mind to think I was sitting in a movie theatre, watching a film that was new when my grandfather was a teenager. I’m hoping to make 12 hours of  terror this wekend, and if you live in the Cleveland area, I highly recommend checking it out. It’s a 12 hour movie marathon (10PM Saturday to 10 AM Sunday) of seven horror films. One of them is always a surprise showing (last year it was “Primal” which turned out to be pretty good) along with some very recognizable scary movies. Last year They screened the original “Nightmare on Elm Street” – seeing that on the big screen was worth the price of admission alone. This year it’s Fulchi’s “Zombie”, “Inhumanoids From the Deep”, Croninberg’s “The Fly”, “Basket Case” (Funny, I just saw this for the first time at Cinema Wasteland two weeks ago.), “Return of the Living Dead” and “My Bloody Valentine 3d” (Which Amy wanted to see on Valentine’s day that year…except it was out of the theater by then!

By the way, there IS a new Violent Blue up today (we still have yet to miss an update and I’m very proud of that.) find it here:
