Amazing... The End of the road is in sight!

Though I'm almost there, I can't help but look back over the years of all that has transpired during the creation of a series... Wow! Where FIERCE CREATURES is concerned, I have lost many a loved one in this: My father, my grandfather, my grandmother, my youngest sister, my 1st wife... I have gained friends and allies in the unlikeliest of places... I've gained children (who knew?)... I have watched my life unfold, collapse, unfold, collapse like an accordion...

And yet, I continue to find myself at the table night after night. And after a decade of stop and start, I'm about to complete a great achievement. To those who truly know me, maybe you'll now understand why I couldn't stop. I can't stop. If I did, all the pain and effort would've meant nothing--- and this work honors so many who left this world before me.

I am an artist and entertainer--- I will continue to BE these things--- I will continue to DO these things--- until its over. Nuff said.

It's almost time to introduce this to the world. Oddly enough, the world is fierce already, so this should come as no surprise to them--- except a different way of looking at it.

I'm still working on a scanner that'll do the job. I'm afraid with the surplus of unseen works I've amassed, I should buy two.

Soon, ladies and gentlemen, soon the wait will be completely over.
FIERCE CREATURES. And all the suffering that I've ever known and loved.

Yes! Man I can't wait to see it. That's amazing how much you can track just with the process of writing / illustrating it. It'll be great to see the fruits of your labor.

That means a hella lot, Brian--- Thank you! The best time to have your fruits and eat them too!

Hey, we can exchange signed copies of each others books! Ha-ha! That'd be great!
