I want to take a moment to thank all of you people who have supported me and my art. Posting on DA was an experiment, I had designed on all of these animated shows, but at the time no one knew that my hand was behind them. So two years ago Brandon Graham suggested that I begin posting here and I thank you for your enthusiastic response! Before I began I thought that I was washed up and that the world had passed me by. Now you have shown me that there is still much to do and people interested in seeing it.

Talking with you has given me plenty to think about, many issues to do with fandom, and how strongly people adhere to things that I pulled out of thin air. I live in a world of risk, I have to walk into an empty space where no one is looking and bring something to the earth. Once these characters, creatures and worlds exist I've found people have taken them to heart, and protect them quite fervently.

Brandon has given me a new comic opportunity and I've decided to take all of my DA experience, all of the shows that I've worked on, all of your comments and distill them into this new title. It has been interesting to merge my animation work with my comic style. You will see something familiar, I hope to please all of you, and yet something new. I am 5 pages into it and I look forward to showing you later in the year.

I really love your work Fil.
Mostly because you worked on shows I fondly grew up with. Even to this day I still remember the fluid animation from the Godzilla animated series and the Xtreme Ghostbusters show. I just hope those two shows get a proper dvd release.
How come the best animated shows don't get a full dvd release? Seriously it's kind of depressing. :(

You are an amazing talent, Fil.  I for one have been waiting years to see new comic work from you. As I've told you before, Zooniverse blew my young mind.  Your imagination knows no bounds.  Good luck on your new project. I for one will be anxiously awaiting it. 
peace,

So, it's too early to consider changing your name to "Da Vinci"?
