correctly guess how many fish there are and win an autograph! lol
the michael turner tribute book you guys put together was really a nice thing to do to honor him and his family. i met him once at a con a ways back and everything i've ever heard or read about him before and after that convention was so totally true. How nice, normal and down to earth mike was, and how you were just instantly his friend. no questions asked.

great job
-J.

its sometimes a tough call as what to do to honor a fallen commrade, but showcasing them and everything they did, and then doing the best you can, always, either in contribution or on you own... well, you know so i won't preach to you.
we're you at new york comic con?

Absolutely stunning, The effects on the swod is mind blowing. One small error though, narwhals don't have large dorsal fins.

I think i spent a day and a half on the layout and figure...and another day just drawing fish...this image is a double-page spread...so it took a bit
