Thanks man. How's the baby and Momma doing?
Thanks man. And congrats again.

Your welcome Jason! I really enjoyed going through your gallery. Keep up the good work.
I love your work! Would really like too see the rest of the lantern corps :)
I know the green lanterns are missing, may be I'll get to them at some point...which other ones are missing.  We did Orange, White, Red and One more I think.  Those were all commissions:) Thanks for the kind words.  I'll be posting new stuff up soon.
