My lovely and talented friend and colleague, Jande Rowe, she of Aedre’s Firefly and Wheeler’s Orbits fame amongst numerous other creative endeavors, graced me with this wonderful drawing for my birthday (which was Sept. 15). Aedre gives Morgan a little cauldron cake, and I LOVE the little wishbone through his nose! Thank you most kindly, Jande! I love this! To see more of this creative diva’s work, visit her website, Eccentric Orbits.

I recently had the distinct pleasure of being interviewed by the great John Adams on his fabulous podcast Super Awesome Geek Show! The talk went all the way back to my beginning years as an artist with crayons all the way to what I’m up to these days. John is a tremendous interviewer, he understands and respects all things geek, and loves to spread the geeky goodness to the world. Click here to check it out!

Frank Jordan (Company Man Comic) created a special Ice Bucket Challenge comic strip (you can see it here), and then challenged David Hurley (Don’t Pick the Flowers) to participate. Accepting his challenge, David created a wonderful comic strip featuring his character, Suzanne, dousing herself with a bucket of ice cold water. You can see David’s strip here. David also created a hilarious video showing him getting the Ice Bucket treatment which he posted on Facebook. The object is to accept the Challenge and then challenge someone else to do the same, and that’s where I come in. David challenged me, and so I put together this special piece.
The Ice Bucket Challenge (#icebucketchallenge) is a creative way to spread ALS awareness via social media and in communities nationwide. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. With only about half of the general public knowledgeable about ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, the Ice Bucket Challenge is making a profound difference.
Here is my Ice Bucket Challenge art. I hope you will all consider donating or contributing to this very worthy cause! For more info about ALS and the Ice Bucket Challenge click here.
