I'm always amazed at how viral the internet is and what a wonderful thing too! As my daughter woke up at 2 a.m. and decided not to go back to sleep ( I was already up). I figured I'd look for some things online, and seemingly at random found two of the most awesome blogs on the whole internet.
1.http://inkdestroyedmybrush.blogspot.com: Is the blog of inker Charles Yoakum. It has all sorts of great stuff, inked pages, links to other cool blogs and all sorts of insights into the comic book industry and art in general.
2. And as if that weren't enough, I also found the GRAPHIC NYC blog by Christopher Irving. Which has an incredible interview with Walter Simonson!!!! If that doesn't get your geek juices flowing, nothing will. Also, tons (literally) of other cool people - too many to mention!
Anyways they are more than worth checking out - so check them out!

Went to Super-Con this weekend, and it was awesome! It's nice to go to the one Con per year where the emphasis in on inking. I also discovered some new books (to me at least) like:
Which is also awesome by the way. Great art, all done in Painter (I believe). I was surprised when Viktor told me that all of the great pen and ink work for this book, was not done in neither pen nor ink! Talk about egg on my face! Anyways, it's worth picking up, if you didn't get to attend the con you can get it here.
Also, I found out about some new products coming soon from Flesk publications, such as:
Al Williamsons Flash Gordon and Mark Shultz sketches volume 4. Wow! Both are available for pre-order here.
Anyways, it was a great convention.
