And the Academy Award goes to...

...quite possibly my very good friend Mark Andrews, who, along with co-director Andy Jimenez, is nominated for BEST ANIMATED FILM, SHORT SUBJECT for the Pixar production, ONE MAN BAND. Root them on, folks! And in the meantime, go pre-order Mark's re-envisioning of his graphic novel COLOSSUS, originally published by yours truly through Crazyfish, and now being published by Image Comics, for a March release alongside NOBLE BOY!

Go tell Mark congrats at his blog, talesofcolossus.blogspot.com !

I'm in the middle of laying out a new story tentatively called NOTES OVER YONDER. You'll all be able to read it in two parts, half of it in AdHouse's upcoming PROJECT: ROMANTIC, and half in the upcoming AFTERWORKS II. Each section is stand-alone, not relying on the other for communication, but together, they make for a different, more unique story. It's fully painted and almost entirely silent, but I'm working in a lot of mood, my love of jazz, a ukulele, and a cat. You'll see...it'll all play together. Anyhow, once completed, the paintings may be framed and shown as part of a three-man show in Los Angeles later this year at Gallery 1988, with Bwana Spoons and Thomas Han. And the whole story will be collected into a hardcover around the same time, so you can read it in one fell swoop and possibly draw new meaning from it. I'm excited about how this one is coming out, and can't wait to see it completed.



So this weekend, we hit San Francisco and saw the original ON THE ORAD manuscript on display at the SF Library. It's huge, all on one continuous piece of paper (the kind of paper is up for dispute...possibly butcher paper or something). It was typed over a manic 21 day period, I believe, on these 12-foot long sheets of paper and taped together. You can even see where he typed right over the tape. It's pretty amazing. There are other interesting things on display, as well, including a visual map of the route taken in ON THE ROAD, and a guide and pictures of the fictional characters vs. their real-life counterparts. This is a must-see if you're in the Bay Area, people!
