Worth saying at the top of every year. Let's all do our best!

Thirty years ago I drew Spidey on my parents' basement wall (Well, I *copied* the drawing from the issue number box from a McFarlane Spidey).

Working on comics at a comics museum. It's amazing to me still that I get to do this.

Space alphabet part two: in 2005 I tried to incorporate the design of those letters into the logo for Silver and the Periodic Forces, a comic based on a character and premise I came up with in 5th grade.

Waaay back in 2001 I was working on a science fiction graphic novel that I described in my youthful arrogance as "Tolkien in space." Of course that meant I had to design my own space alphabet.

To my credit, I *did* try to design letter forms that visualized what I thought the sounds would look like (vowels are round, hard sounds are angular, etc). But otherwise it was just plain unexamined mimicry.
