I've been dropping in on Dan Stevens, blues player lately and dropping off some goodies for him. So far, Dan has been playing the life out of a little three string guitar he got from me. I also let Dan try out one of my telephone mics and he seems to love it. I went to see him use both pieces of equipment last night at the Steak Loft in Mystic CT last night. They sounded amazing. It is really great to see them used in the field. Dan will be playing in a blues festival next week up in Maine. You should go check him out. You can hear how great these instruments really sound. He's an amazing blues player. I may give him a couple extra instruments in hopes to spread the CBG goodness. Here is a little peak of Dan playing that three string banger in Grand Central Station, NY.
Is it a man that becomes a whale or a whale that becomes a man. No on knows for sure.
This book is a must have for any comic fan who likes quirky, awesome, action packed stories with inter-weaved prose and letters that magically tie each of these short stories together.
I have provided a four page story and a Were Whale shanty that resides on the back cover. There are two larger stories by two wonderful artists and friends, Chris Gugliotti and Jason Snair. Our friend and artist John Burns was kind enough to spin yarns and create letters from sailors and other characters to weave each of the three stories together. Readers are rewarded with some amazing sketches and concept art from the artists.
Pick it up in hard cover, soft cover or digital. Your choice!
I was recently asked to create a main image for a children's book documentary called, Library of and Early Mind. The documentary focuses on some great authors throughout children's book and young adult literature. You can learn more about the film by visiting the website. The film is working its way through film festivals and I'm eager to hear how it does. Judging by the trailer it looks to be a really interesting documentary.
I've been so busy I forgot to post that I set up the Steampunk Bizarre show in Hartford CT. I showcased an amplifier, guitar, pair of goggles and a diddley bow. All of which are still for sale. If you are interested in purchasing any of the pieces, please contact me via the contact page.
Thank you to everyone who attended and to Joe Marsocci for organizing the show. Please drop by my site for updates.
