Talented creator, Darrel Troxel, a purveyor of hilarious and wonderful things, surprised me with this priceless gift recently. He hand crafted it out of wood with the help of a laser in magical Raydred Studios, Darrel’s independent studio that produces limited edition artwork, prints, lapel pins, and other handmade items. To say that I was impressed would greatly underemphasize how I felt when I opened the package he sent. It is exquisite, with its accurate recreation of the Zombie Boy logo and the line work on the lapel pins, which feature Zombie Boy, Gorr, a voodoo doll and Ghosty Von Mortis, Darrel’s original creation.
Dana Atnip creates a wonderful, whimsical space fantasy, Galactic Dragons that is sure to make your day. Dana’s characters are just so much fun and she rockets them into the cosmos with wit and pizazz. I was thrilled to receive this spectacular illustration by Dana and I’m super proud to present it to you guys now. Thanks, Dana!
Crazyman Jon Esparza sent me this Crazylicious treat for my birthday and his gift to me is now my gift to you! Here’s a great big slice of happiness from the talented and super nice creator of Bubble Fox, Peppertown, and Mike and Mindy. Enjoy! (Love Jon’s drawing of an overly-inflated Gorr!) And be sure to visit Jon’s site: Jon’s Crazy Stuff.

Zombie Boy received a special mention in the September/October 2016 newsletter of the National Cartoonists Society magazine, The Cartoonist, courtesy of Texas Chapter chair, Hector Cantu (Baldo). Hector spoke of my Harvey Award nomination, and it was an honor to have my first official recognition as a member of the Texas chapter of the NCS. Thanks, Hector!
