Super Albino: Llamas are awesome! (459)
My Bio
My Childrens Judo Class

In 1969, at age fifteen, while still recovering from the last in a series of operations on my leg for post-polio effects, I got my mother to drive me to CHARLTON Publishing Co. in Derby, Connecticut. There I showed my portfolio to the late George Wildman https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Wildman

who offered me an entry-level position. The perks: learn from the best ("on your own time").


This was near the end of Charlton's hay days. They had Giordano, Ditko, Boyette and a bunch of other great guys (like Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez). But my mother said, "No!" (About 35 years later when I asked her why she wasted everyone's time bringing me to the interview if she had no intention of letting me work, she said, "I never imagined anyone would take you seriously." )


After that I got into wrestling and martial arts, motorcycles and girls, continued my education through graduate school, then started work in a "serious" profession. Nevertheless; in the mid 80s, I took a half-time position so I could write fiction and do a full time stint at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and Fleischer Art Memorial. But, when push came to shove, I returned full time to Human Service and Psychology.


Some years back, I wiped the slate clean and decided to start over - to pick up where I'd left off as a teenager - to do graphic novels, or bust. That's where I am, now - BUSTED. . . BIG TIME! Nowhere to go from here, except up!

Is that the Cintiq Pro? My friend got one and I helped set it up. Portable like a big clip board, which can be handy. Even so, there is something nice about the big 27" - reminds me of a drawing board and dedicated art studio.


I came to love my Cintiq so that now I am completely lost without it (which is to say dependent on it). They work like magic, don't you think? That is, when they work. LOL

Yes, I finally figured that out by reviewing your watchers. ;)

Coming from someone who is never here that sounds strange. XD. Wouldn't you know that right after the Cintiq breaks I decide to get back to art? LOL

So, how is the comic book business going? Still up and running, or did everyone abandon ship? (And what about your day job - is it better or worse in the wake of covid 19? I could see how it could go either way.)

Thanks for the +Watch!

The images on your collage are familiar. I recognize them. But I don't recognize your user name. Did you change it? The photo on your icon looks like someone I know from a couple of years ago, here. Hair is longer and face looks the same, but then, so small, who can tell? (Do you like to post pictures of food creations? ;) )

As soon as I get the equipment up and running, again. Cintiq broke down and I'm too spoiled to go back to pencil and paper :faint:
