I'm not dumb. I just have a command of thoroughly useless information.

I haven't posted in a while so here's a sneak preview of one of the Warmageddon pages I'm working on. One of the great things about it is that I spent a good amount of time on the poster in the background without realizing I was going to cover the damned thing up with people. In case you're wondering, it's a sketchy picture of two gladiators fighting. Oh, the joys of working in layers when your brain has obviously been removed.

Oh, this is a bit late but here's to Mike Wieringo. Mike passed away recently. Although I've never met him personally, we'd interacted here and there on the web. We once crossed swords ( as crossed as swords could get with Mike) over a character redesign he did. In the end, I was just being a jackass about it (if you can imagine such a thing) and he was in the right all along. I even ended up liking the design once I saw it in "action." I always felt bad about it but Mike went on to give me a series of really good critiques on artwork I'd posted on this or that message board. He was nice like that.

Everyone who has posted about Mike's passing used the drawing from his last blog post. Not me. I'm using one that always cracked me up. It's from Mike's monkey phase. It's one of my favorites, just because it makes me laugh every time I see it. Here's to ya, Mike.
