For those of you who may not have heard, comics artist and all around gentleman Jeremy Dale :iconthejeremydale:, probably best known for his recent series SKYWARD, passed away very unexpectedly earlier this week, after what seems to have been a severe bout with influenza. He was far too young - only 35 or 38, I believe.

I've casually known Jeremy for about seven years, as he and his widow Kelly used to live in the same area as I do now, before they moved on to Atlanta, GA. He was always a very underrated, underappreciated talent within the industry, though I know his fans and friends loved and respected his humor, his humbleness, and his heart as an artist and as a person.

The comics industry and the world is a lesser place for his absence.

RIP, Jeremy, you will be missed.

Hello, everyone.

Home buying came with some unexpected ups and downs. We've spent the past 2 weeks moving the small stuff from my current place to the new house, as well as painting 2/3rds of the house, and replacing all the ceiling light fixtures with ceiling fan lights. Tomorrow, the movers come and take out all the big stuff and move it over to the new house, and it'll probably be another two weeks before I'm remotely settled in.

I won't be available for a while, probably, as I'm about to tear down my computer and pack it up for the move tomorrow. I don't even know where the computer is going to be stationed in my new house yet. It's going to be an adventure tomorrow. *semi-stress / panic mode* 

Hopefully I'll be up and running again by the end of the first week of November but we'll see. Until then, every enjoy your Halloween / All Hallow's Eve / Autumnal Festivities this week / weekend, and stay safe.

See you on the flip side.

Just to let people know, we got the house this past Tuesday, and are in the slow process of moving between the two locales. Lots of cleanup / repairs at the new place we weren't expecting, slowing us down. Hopefully we'll be moved in by end of the month and can start applying myself more here in November.

I'm currently in the process of packing as I should be closing and moving into my new house at the end of the month. After I get resettled, I'll start putting new stuff up again.

Thanks for being here.

House update: Had a place we wanted, but the inspection turned out really bad. So we backed out of that deal. Found another place, inspections went well, waiting on seller to agree to repair addendum and the loan to go forward so we can head to the table and close. If all goes well, I'll be moving by the end of September, early October at latest.

My pal :iconblondthecolorist: (who has colored for DC, Marvel, Top Cow, Boom, and other companies) recently opened his StoreEnvy store and has a bunch of prints and original art work for sale for the Labor Day weekend. Use the code "labor" to get 25% of all items including original art. Lots of nice, original one of a kind art over there. Check it out.

I'll have a StoreEnvy site of my own up and running in the weeks to come. Stay tuned!

That's all for now. Thanks for being here.

Hello, Louis. I recall you as being one of the few sensible voices at the BleedingCool forums, where I am currently the only past contributor to the webzine to be banned from said forums for life. Funny story.

But your art and spirit are awesome, and if I can ever be of service with anything, here I am!

Hmmm. Need a bit of claification. If you mean a commission request, sure. If you mean just a request... no one's ever asked before, and I'd have to say it depends on who / what it is?
