Lots going on! Over the holiday break I not only took a trip to Disneyland with the family (as described in my previous post), but took time off to get some quality drawing time in. In fact, I've just about completed issue 10 of Rob Hanes Adventures! It kind of snuck up on me because I was working from an uncompleted script and as I began laying out the next page (p. 18), I realized, "Hey, this is the last page!" I still need to tone and letter several pages, but this puts me in good shape for a spring release, if not sooner!
In addition, I continued to update my online web comic, and began the process of registering it at web comic listing sites like Online Comics and the Web Comics List to ensure maximum exposure for the series. I also have begun the process of redesigning my series website to upgrade it to CSS format, and am also considering a major overhaul and redesign.

And to top it off, the colorist for the web comic series, Barry Gregory, of 01Comics sent me a sample page from the story he's currently prepping. I thought I'd post it here to whet everyone's appetite--I think it looks terrific! (To see it full size, click here or on the image above.
