Stuff and Junk.....

Sorry to all you Loyal Legionnaires out there, but again sorry for not posting. Honestly I just haven't had anything to post. I was working on some things, but again honestly to use an old phrase, I have hit the wall. My rheumatioid Arthritis is really driving me crazy. What little work I am doing is at about quarter speed. Which, pardon my french, really pisses me off! My mind is rattled with this all. I can't get going. I have finally been to the new specialist, and I just don't know what is going to happen from all that. Again honestly, not much hope in some areas.
I just don't know how much money and time this is all going to take.

Anyway enough whining, I will just suck it up for now I guess. So I offer yet another cover idea in process for 'Solo Flight'. I pasted in a photo background to get some reference. It won't look like that too much when finished. It is just to give kind of an idea and placement for the buildings. I started taking a look at covers lately, and kind of got tired of the fact most of them don't have a damned thing to do with the comic other than some fancy mood shot of a brooding hero. And I found out I was trying to do the same damned thing. So I decided to do something about it. And yes this scene kind of appears in the comic so it gives a taste of things to come.

So with slow going things, including this blog, I will try harder to keep all informed as to what is happening. We all just have to keep the faith as they say.


  1. Tom - it's good to hear from you, though I am sorry to hear that the rheumatoid arthritis is still causing you serious trouble. Aging is sometimes painful as you literally know, but for me it still beats the alternative. Best wishes on finding some relief soon.

    On a positive note, I really like the concept art. The cable car and vehicle in the background along with the policeman leaning out of the car in the foreground give it a real sense of motion. I mentally filled in SWOOSH! lines for Captain Spectre that curve around the background vehicles. I really love what you do!

  2. Reminds me of some of those old Kirby art he'd do with photo collage, good luck in finding some relief with the doc.
