Hey, everybody. I've been missing on deviantart for the better part of two months. There are a few reasons for this, but most of them are personal. The rest are due to technical problems with my scanner and my Illustrator software. I'm glad to say that all of that stuff is behind me.

Fortunately, I kept drawing throughout my hiatus and I have quite a bit to show you. The "Liquid Sunshine" story is completely done and I'll be uploading around a page a day. I also have a few pages done for another Robertson story that I'll be sending your way as soon as "Liquid Sunshine" has run its course.

In non-Robertson news, I recently collaborated on a fantasy story with a fellow in my comics workshop. It's loosely based on a traditional British folk tale and I think it came out pretty well.

I also have a few gag pages I modeled after the Mad contributions of Harvey Kurtzman. They'll be included in an e-book I'm publishing in June.

Thanks for your patience, everybody. I hope you'll dig what I have for you in the future.

Do you read any old adventure strips?

Not as many as I'd like to, but a few...

I've read a few of those giant hardbacks of Hal Foster's Prince Valiant. I've also gone over some of Chester Gould's Dick Tracy storylines and I've sampled Superman and Batman's newspaper runs. I've come across those 1930's Mickey Mouse comics by Floyd Gottfredson and I've enjoyed them immensely. There's also Little Nemo in Slumberland; I'd say that comic is essential reading for any comics enthusiast.

There are a lot of holes though. I haven't gotten around to Terry & The Pirates or The Phantom, for example.

I highly recommend anything by Milton Caniff or Roy Crane. 

I've been thinking about doing my own take on the (non-superhero) genre. Like maybe science-fiction or present day. Centered around an oldschool soldier of fortune type. I was wondering if you had any thoughts on it.

Milton Caniff and Roy Crane were routinely cited as an influence by Jack Kirby, Joe Kubert, Will Eisner, and just about every other Golden Age creator who matters. I definitely plan on reading their stuff at some point.

I think you'd do interesting things with a "soldier-of-fortune" type of character. I say go for it.
