As I'm sure you've noticed, the art has been less-than-frequent (as in "haven't posted any in ages"). My new position at Rue Morgue has left my dance-card pretty full these days. This is not a complaint. I've been fortunate enough to have some wonderful opportunities fall into my lap, including a trip to The Calgary Comic Expo with members of The Rue Crew. On top of attending one of the coolest conventions in Canada, I will be hosting a panel with three of the top artists in horror comics: Tony Moore (The Walking Dead), Arthur Suydam (Marvel Zombies) and one of my idols, Bernie Wrightson. We're also prepping up for our very own convention, the annual Festival of Fear with special guest of honour, John Carpenter. The saying goes "may you live in interesting times". I'm doing just that, and feeling blessed because of it. Hence the reason for the lack of submissions to date. I promise, I will get back up to speed - just not making any promises when.
Now, some very good news. As many of you already know, I am a longtime fan of Clive Barker's work. So, it gives me a tremedous thrill to tell you (if you didn't already know, that is) that Mr. Barker has joined the ranks of Deviantart! Just go here - I've said too much already.
One last thing before I go, on a Barker-related note: for years, there have been rumblings of an extended cut of his film, Nightbreed. Well, there's truth to that rumbling. An extended cut of the film has been pieced together with found footage cut from the original release. It has been making the convention circuit rounds, with the hope of convincing the studio, Morgan Creek, to release this "director's cut" to DVD. And here's how you can help it get done. The group, Occupy Midian, has started a petition to let Morgan creek know that if they make it, we will buy it. Have your say and raise your voice here:
Well, that's enough shilling for now. Hope everyone's doing well out there. I'll try and pop in more frequently - scout's honour.
