Still Loved by Rejected!

There's a cool site called Covered where artists do music-style covers of their favorite comic book covers; then there is Rejected By Covered, where there are still tons of people that can draw better than me, and yet they took two more of my covers; a Gene Colan tribute and one of the first covers I remember seeing, The Freedom Fighters #1.

Lest Ye Be Judged

The exceedingly handsome Judges Panel for the Blue Whiskey Film Festival in Palatine, Illinois.  This was a great pair of guys to work with, which was handy because we all liked different things.  My festival fave was Fleurs du mal (Flowers of Evil); Falling Overnight won Best of, and Turkey Bowl, The Dead Inside, Absentia, The Wanteds, and The Day Carl Sandburg Died were all well received, among others.  You can check out the whole lineup at

Me and festival coordinator Mike Noens.  I'm not sure he had slept since the previous fest.
