“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

Fun show, great city and rockstar-to-be/good friend FIONA STAPLES won her first SHUSTER AWARD for 'Dessinateur Couvertures Exceptionnel de Bandes Dessinées' which is fancyspeak for 'Outstanding Comic Book Cover Artist'. Big congratulations, girlie.


Awesome. And the CALGARY ENTERTAINMENT EXPO? Also, awesome.


Anyway, I'd write something more extensive, but I swear I can barely keep my eyes open due to convention fatigue. Enjoy the update.

It was great to meet you, Eric. Really appreciate you making the trip to Calgary. If I wasn't on a student budget I'd hit you up for a commission for certain. Maybe I'll get one for myself as a grad gift:)

Rocking cyclops.
