Meeting a Hero and Legend

About a year ago, I posted my Influence Map, an idea I got from artist Cedric Hohnstadt. It shows the artists that have inspired and influenced me. Today, at the Cincinnati Comics Expo, I got to meet one of the greats from my map: Legendary Artist Stan Goldberg. Stan's influence on me came through his 41 years of work with Archie Comics. But he has worked with many others, including Timely Comics (Marvel before they were Marvel). I got a couple of drawings from Stan and enjoyed his stories as he drew, including some great advice to me as an artist. He was a pleasure to meet!

SkunkFest 2011

Great time at SkunkFest this year! Met some new friends and caught up with returning friends from last year. We introduced Ramone to new fans, and Issue 1, A Skunk's Tale, got into more people's hands. All in all, a fun weekend. Thanks to the good folks at the Skunk Haven for all their hard work in organizing the event. Looking forward to next year!
