ZED in French

I just received a box containing copies of "ZED Tome 1" published by "Editions Kymera". The book collects the first five issues and it looks really nice! Eric Bufkens did a wonderful job translating the comics and preserving my insane and juvenile writing style. I hope it's a big success in Europe. For those who read French, here are a few reviews that have popped up on the internet:

Andrew's Blog

My pal Andrew Scott has a new blog that's really worth checking out. Andrew was the music composer and sound editor on "Insanely Twisted Shadow Puppets". While working with him, I found out that he was a fantastic sculptor as well. Andrew creates the most incredible bug replicas. His pieces almost look alive! One evening while having a few beers, we realized that we both have an obsession with trilobites. Right away, we decided to put together an art show inspired by those primeval creatures. It's currently an on-line show but we intend to have an actual gallery show once we have enough pieces.

Fun Time in Calgary

Wow! What a con!

We really didn't know what to expect since this was the inaugural year of this particular show. We were pleasantly surprised.

We arrived in Calgary on Friday (May 5th) and were picked up at the airport by the charming Laurie Breitkreuz, one of the con's organizer (and talented artist to boot). We got to our hotel, freshened up a bit, and headed down to the restaurant for a meal. There, we were joined by Kandrix Foong (the mastermind behind the con), Laurie, Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) and his wife, as well as producer Alan Burnet (Batman Animated). It was a fun time and we ate way too much. (Click here to read full report)

XEKO Game Now Available

Since 2005, I've been involved in designing the visual aspects of a trading card game called XEKO. I created the majority of the card illustrations (with additional art from Dean Yeagle, Edward Pun and Travis Kotzebue), as well as designing several of the games components (icons, borders, box and packaging elements, etc...).

This is a tremendously fun game for all ages. I can't recommend it highly enough. You can order it directly from our site by going to our ordering page. But before you do so, click here and have a look!
