So a lot happened in 09 and into this year and I just noticed its been a while since I threw up a journal entry. While there has been too much going on to really talk about in this entry in great detail, here are the cliff notes! So on the personal side of things, Michael Turner's death hit me pretty hard and not so long after that some other life situations hit me as well.  I've been in and out of several small relationships, since my last long term relationship was a major disappointment. So the epic search for the woman I love continues. With a couple VERY nice prospects on the horizon I might add. I've had to fire a few close friends but gained new and even better friends in the process. I finally was able to get that acursed long hair cut off after my role as a pirate wrapped up. So Im back to being good ol short haired me.

On the professional side of things, I became complacent and let control of Particle9 Productions slip for a while, but took it back with force. My site was hacked, whith resulted in a battle with Google over their claim my website was distributing malware, Which ended with the collapse of my vast web empire and temporary closures of other internet accounts. I've since increased security for my server and even changed hosting companies. Currently I'm in hte process of rebuilding everything online from the codes up. P9P will emerge from the ashes better than ever before. At least better designed ;) I've been working on two simultaneous film projects called Scorpéo, and Shear Terror. I have had acting roles in both. I've also been contracted by Dynamite Entertainment. So far I've been doing a some covers and hopefully I'll be doing many more in the near future with the eventual sequential work by me as well :) In fact this upcoming month you should all check out Dynamite's Stargate books. Just an FYI :D

On the philosophical side of things I've learned many negative things come out of passionate emotions. In fact the more passionate a person is about something the more neurotic their behavior can be. For example, You can take solice in the knowledge that a person's disdain for your artistic ability is rooted in their own jealousy, or a scorned woman's hatred is rooted in love. It's counter intuitive to think that a person will act hatefully because they really love you. However, the people who love you most passionately end up hating you most fervently becuase they lack control of their own emotions. So when someone takes a pot shot at you for your abilities, don't be hurt by their words, pitty them for being petty. If they make unfounded accusations to whch you have proof to the contrary, note their ignorance and pray for them.

There really has been a lot that has gone on up until now, But for now I think you're up to speed, so look for Particle9 Productions to be back on track soon. And also look for my work gracing the shelves at your local comic shop on books from Dynamite Entertainment. Until next time I write and Lord only knows when that will be, Take care ya'll.

It was Saturday morning and we were getting ready for the big day at Wizard World Chicago. A  friend's knock at the hotel room door delivered the bad news that a man whom I had admired long before many fans out there had passed on. Michael Turner had died at age 37 on Friday June 27th 2008. The news came as a shock to me as I'm sure it did to so many others.

As many of you know, or at least can obviously tell by looking at my work, Michael Turner has always been an inspiration to me, and my work since I started following his career in 1998. His Tomb Raider comics first caught my eye, and then in 1999 I picked up my first issue of Fathom his first creator owned property. His work inspired me to draw comics like no one else's had. I found myself going to the comic shop only to pick up his work. I used his work mostly to teach myself how to draw. But on that Saturday a shiver came over me when I realized I would never really have a reason to go back to the comic shop. The man who's work inspired me for so long would never again have new work out in stores past what he did before he had died.

On that Friday night, the world was robbed of someone who gave more of themselves than anyone else I have ever met in the comic industry. The first time I met Michael Turner was at Wizard World Chicago 2003. He was so happy and full of life back then, he looked genuinely happy to see me even though we had never met before. He made time for me to show him my work, like none of the other comic editors had. I knew at that moment that he was someone different. In an industry that was jaded and generally grumpy, here was a man who always put on a smile, and enjoyed what he did in life, he always made time for his fans even when he wasn't feeling well.

Unfortunately I didn't get to know him as well as others did, and for that I will always feel cheated, but even though I didnt get to know him well in person, I think I got to know him very well through his work. A person's work speaks volumes about who they are, and what values they uphold. Michael most certainly had high values if we are to judge him by his works.It had been my hope to one day draw with Michael Turner but that will never happen. Now, I like so many of his fans have to look to the future and carry on his legacy. Maybe not in our works, but in our hearts. Michael gave anyone who knew of him a piece of something that is special, and everyone of his fans should keep that and continue to be inspired from it now more than ever in memory of him.
