Belle Isle Aquarium Koi Transfer 2015

Tomorrow, starting at 10am is the spring koi transfer on Belle Isle to bring all the koi fish out of the basement winter holding tanks outside to the pond. Bring the kids and the grandparents and a bucket, so you can help bring a koi outside. There will be hot dogs, chips and pop afterwards.

Unfortunately, I won't be in on the fun as I will be at Comic and More for Free Comic Book Day, but this is a fun time and you should go!

You can also get a colored version of the above cartoon as a button tomorrow at the aquarium.

Unlawful Good, A Crime Noir Anthology, Part Three

The book has finally arrived! Unlawful Good, A Crime Noir Anthology, which was put together and edited by Marvel's Heather Antos has been printed and I have quite a few copies in hand for sale here and at conventions. I contributed the pencils and inks for an eight page story written by Brian Visaggio called The Burning Sun. Above is the black and white version of page one before the text (Zack Saam) and the colors (Harry Saxon). The book looks great and has stories by Jay Fosgitt, Dirk Manning and a whole slew of other creators. So, check it out!

I will be there alongside Jay Fosgitt, Jeff Sornig, Bill Pulkovski, Tony Miello, Dirk Manning, Jason Westlake, Kasey Pierce and many more Michigan based talent. Stop by, say hello, pick up a book, print, sketch card, etc. I'll be there both days.

The War Of The Worlds Sketch Card Commission

I've been hard at work on quite a few projects lately, none that I can show anything for at this time, so here is something that I can show. A couple of commissions for The War Of The Worlds. I did a couple of the tripods and tried to make them as much my own as possible with keeping the feel of the older illustrations.

Shiver On The River 2015

Head on down to Belle Isle today for the annual Shiver On The River event. All the buildings will be open, including the aquarium and each will have their own thing going on. And, next year there will be a polar plunge charity event in the Detroit River for those brave enough.

And remember, you will need a day or year pass to get on the island, as it is a state park now.

George Stout

After reading The Monuments Men by Robert M. Edsel, I thought that someone should do a monument to the guy who saved millions of lost treasure looted by the Nazis during WWII. So, I did this sketch from a photo in the book (I liked his posture) and maybe I'll do a small sculpture of it. Walker Hancock should have a statue, as well.
