Friend and Batturtle actress movie alum Mary Mac has gotten herself in the running to be the new Kokanee Glacier Girl. She's good people, so you should take a second from your hectic web-surfing day and go vote for her, 'cause I say so.

Here's a couple of logo designs for the new top secret project. Unless you can read...then it's not so much of a secret I guess. They're created by Barry Bradfield from Basement 24, check out his website over in the links section. His Minimate toy designs are awesome.

Another delayed update. This one on last weekend's Comic Book Expo in Toronto. Above you'll see a Commander Rick sketch by Ty Templeton. If you're not in the know, Commander Rick hosted a comic book / science fiction themed show called 'Prisoners of Gravity' that was on from '89-'94 on TVO (the public TV channel in Ontario on the off chance that anyone from far away is reading this). It was the best show. They interviewed everyone: Niel Gaiman, Alan Moore, Frank Miller, Sam Raimi, Jack Kirby (!) and many many more. Anyhow, Ty did the art for the opening of the show, so it was very kind of him to add a very nice sketch to my collection.
As fate would have it, I ended up being alongside a few other folks keeping Mark Askwith (PoG producer, interviewer and mastermind) away from his being set-up surprise birthday party. Which I got to tag along to. Met bunches of other cool people, including none other than (Commander) Rick Green himself.

So that night was the highlight hands down. Managed to add a few other sketches to the book. The couple below are from Yanick Paquette (who's currently in the midst of doing some Civil War stuff at Marvel) and Andrew Barr (check out his site at: ).
Got a lovely bizarre sketch of some kindah' unicorn monster from an artist who you should check out at And got in my annual visit with and comic book purchase from Tyrone McCarthy. Check out his comic book titled website at and buy many of his comics.

Went to see an evil movie about an alien invasion with the rather appropriate title of 'Evil Aliens'. Bought some Hellboy toys. Hung out at Brett Kelly's booth for a bit as he peddled his wares. They sold out of 'My Dead Girlfriend' DVD's. Always nice. By Sunday I was completely worn out. Didn't pace myself well enough. Need to remember to get in more sit down geeking (panels and movies) at the next con. I did bump into the actual Carrie Fisher, but alas, no geek-girl metal bikini Leia pictures this time.
