back from chicago...



made it back safely from chicago (but sadly, didn't get to go to the weber restaurant)...
had a great show, met some new and old friends (and now i can say " i know katie cook!"), sold some art, books and stuff... even with the big publishers absent, it seemed like a very busy show (and quite possibly their absence got more folks to spend time in artist alley) ...

glad to be home, working hard on issue 3 of iron man and the armor wars (issue 1 came out a few weeks ago... you DID pick it up, right?) and getting the last of the files to image for the haps' halloween spooktacular (which, with any luck, we'll debut in baltimore...)

anyway, here's a scan of an impulse color piece i did at the chicago show (thanks for sending it, kieron) as well as the prelim...

okay, back to work!
-c (can't believe it's his 20 year high school reunion this weekend)

Great Impulse, Craig. I love what you did with his stop foot.

Glad to hear you had a great time in Chicago.

As for reunions, my 30th was this year, but I gave it a pass. My school takes the "fund raising" approach to it and groups all the reunion classes - 5, 10, 15, 20, etc. - together for one big, very over-priced, dinner, with just a "cocktail reception" for the individual reunion classes

It is a very corporate, very profit driven approach to reunions that is popular with colleges and universities, but, IMHO, sucks the life out of high school reunions. Not sure how it is a "reunion" when 90 per cent of the folks in attendance weren't even at the school when I was there, let alone in my class. Heck, at 30 years, the folks celebrating their 5th and 10th year reunions weren't even born when I was graduating.

Oh man! I didn't even know you were there Craig! Dang, had I known I definitely would've stopped by.

That Impulse is great, I would have loved to get a Kid Flash from you. Maybe next time.

LOVE that Impulse. I miss the little guy.

Have fun at your reunion. I never thought I'd go to mine but I went to both the 10th and 20th. It's great re-connecting with old friends. My 20th anniversary of graduating college is next year. You're still a baby, Craig.

Oh man, this is one of my favorite styles of drawing, and one of my favorite subjects, too! I'm glad I came across this picture in an image search for Impulse. It's adorable, and I love it! Thank you for making it!
