New York for Nick

For those of you that have ordered the limited ANCIENT BOOK, the wait is almost over. Books should officially ship in the next few days. Thanks SO much for everyone's patience...and sorry for all the delays...I'm shipping two new MAGIC PICKLE books to Scholastic this week as well, in addition to Pixar duties, family time, and some other projects, including THE ANCIENT BOOK OF SEX AND SCIENCE, which is now underway. Folks waiting on the last few SCRAP METTLE limiteds will have a week or two more to wait, I'm afraid. In the meantime, here's a painting for my pal Nick.

RIP Mike Wieringo

I'm absolutely shocked. Mike was one of the first pros that ever wrote me to let me know what he thought of my work, unsolicited and full of praise, ten years ago when I started SOULWIND. A truly kind man.

Matt Brady has more at NEWSARAMA.

I'll have some post-con wrap-up news and info on when ANCIENT BOOK and SCRAP METTLE limited editions are shipping soon (ANCIENT BOOKS will ship this week, if I've received your payment). I'm back to work from my break, so things are busy. Thanks for everyone's patience.
