Yes, I know, I haven’t been the perfect blogger lately. It’s all due to travel and a busy work schedule. As for the travel part, I thought I should post an update before heading to the UK for a short break. But before I do, I should tell you about a couple of things.

The first is a podcast review of my web comic “Velia, Dear” on I was very happy with the review except for one thing – the pronounciation of Velia’s name! Guys, it’s not pronounced “Veel-ia”, like a meat, it’s pronounced “Veh-lia” like a veil. Oh, well, I guess it was a great review, and I really can’t complain, can I?

The other exciting piece of news is that “Tina’s Groove” will be part of an exhibition at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco. The name of the show is “Black And White And Read All Over: Comics of The New Millenium” and it features the work of Stephan Pastis (“Pearls Before Swine”), Richard Thompson (“Cul de Sac”), Piers Baker (“Ollie & Quentin”), Alex Hallatt (“Arctic Circle”), Mark Tatulli (“Lio”), Jeff Parker and Steve Kelley (“Dustin”), Keith Knight (“The Knight Life”), and Lalo Alcararaz (“La Cucaracha”). A really talented bunch of people. The show will run from December 17th to May 6th. So if you’re in San Francisco, or planning on being there during those months, you should definitely check it out.

I’ll be back from my travels with some sketchbook drawings… ‘bye for now.
