Conventions and some personal stuff...

This is too late to do anyone any good, but I still wanted to share the art from this MIX promo. The kick-off party was last night at Big Brain Comics and the Xpo itself was today. I went to both and took a lot of pictures (and bought a lot of comics), so I'll do a report for Robot 6 in the next few days.

As I've mentioned before, I struggle with how much personal information to share here (more specifically, how much you may be interested in), but the reason I didn't get this up sooner was that my wife's mom has been really sick for about a month. That's created a bunch of extra responsibilities for everyone of course. Responsibilities we've been happy to fulfill, but it's still been rough.

Anyway, Diane's mom passed on today. It's a blessing - she was ready to go - but still... She was a bright light in our lives and it's going to be very different from here on.

In better news, with MIX done, it's time to start thinking about FallCon. I'll be exhibiting there and if things go as planned, I hope to have some exciting news by then.

Family illness is tough to handle. Not being a religious person I'm sending all the positive waves I can find up your way.

Being a big Kelly's Heroes fan, we'll gladly accept positive waves. :) Thanks, Ken.

Sorry to hear about your Mother-in-Law's passing. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.How is the boy holding up (I can not remember if you have refereed to him by name so I wont...)

He's doing okay. We told him what was going on as soon as we knew a couple of months ago, so he's already been grieving for a while. Like with anyone, I'm sure it'll hit him hard at certain times, but for now he's coping well. Thanks for asking and for the thoughts and prayers. They're much appreciated.
