Haven't done a new journal entry since 2011, I guess!!! LOL!
Sorry, been VERY BUSY for the most part. Still doing my western and the bulk of my time away from DeviantArt was to finalize the rough sketchings of my western comics' pages. Doing penciling and inking, at present of just over 230+ pages of story (not including chapter illustrations, covers, trade dress, etc.). Thinking I may add some additional pages ballooning my story to about 240 pages in count (have a few scenes that I feel will better flesh some elements out).

In any case, aside from that, my time online is usually on my Facebook page and while I was just there, I happened across this following link below by comic scribe Gail Simone to all the aspiring female comic book creators looking to burst onto the comic industry playing field. It's no holds barred and the lady tells it like she sees it, encouraging our fine female voices out there and cutting through the utter clutter. I've long been a supporter of getting more and more female creatives in the field. Comics has always had female fans and creators, but not nearly as many as there are us guys. You ask me, I think our industry could stand to use more of the ladies and their voices out there. Noticed over the past 5 years or more that more and more females are getting into comics and other related genre entertainment than ever before, and I MUST SAY, I'm totally glad for it. Keeps things interesting and utterly exciting.

Looking forward to more stuff out there from the creative ladies (already HUGE on Image Comics' Pretty Deadly by writer Kelly Sue DeConnick and artist Emma Rios with colors by Jordie Bellaire, also check out DC/Vertigo's Coffin Hill, if you haven't done so already).
Alright, gotta book on outta here! More of my own pages to tighten-up the pencils on for more inking. This below link is for all the creative ladies on my followers list, as well as any of you gents that are inclined to give it a read and support our female creators out there. Really, comics are for EVERYONE, regardless of gender. It's a huge industry out there. Room enough for everyone to not only partake of all the killer-cool comics has to offer, but also to MAKE THEIR OWN!!! ;)

Wow it was the beginning of the month that you sent this message. Shows how busy I've been. I've been working on the blue pencils and rough sketches of my western comic I've created and already have all written up...I don't go into detail on it with anyone, so excuse my being vague on it ;D .

It's taking a long, loooonnnngggg time to do it because I've been editing the hell out of it. For example: I did reread at issue #2 and didn't like the second half so I tore that rough layout for scenes and redid the whole second half. Those changes effected the story in the following issues and even expanded characters and amped up the mini-series to 7 issues in length...but it reads much better. So mostly I've been drawing up a storm. ;)
