My Work Environment

For those curious about my work environment over at my long neglected companion blog for kids there are a series of photos of my previous office. Unfortunately I didn't notice at the time I took them that the camera I used had suffered some damage from being dropped on a parking lot so they are not in the best focus, and since I no longer live at that house I can't go back and retake them.

My current office is much smaller than the spacious 24' x 32' space seen above, but I still like to be surrounded by all manner of visual and acoustical inspiration. You can find the rest of them here.

Ahoy, Me Hearties!

This day's th' day fer shoutin' like a scurvy pirate. Complainin' to th' cable company, wishin' grandma a grog-filled birthday, finally askin' out that comely co-worker, or tryin' to speak ye way out 'o a traffic ticket has never be more a ruckas.

Clive Barker's Book of the Damned Podcast

The folks at the Clive Barker Podcast discuss the four issues of Clive Barker's Book of the Damned published by Marvel Comics in the early 1990s. I wrote the 3rd of these. There's a lot of insight here, and they make me sound good.

Listen to it here. Discussion of the issue I wrote comes in at about the 1:04:35 mark.

One of the people doing the discussing is my friend, Max Lichtor, of the Pyramid Gallery who probably knows more about those 4 books than anyone, including the writers, and he's developed them into something far more amazing than we could have imagined. To see what he's done, Visit the Labyrinth.

Make sure you check out the other links presented with this episode, and take a look at some of their previous podcasts as well.

Ask Me Anything #32

It's the first Monday of the month which means it's time for me to take your questions and answer them as best I can. So, "Ask Me Anything." 

You can ask me any questions you'd like, whether it's about my work, opinions, influences, favorites, least favorites, my summer reading, which summer movies I've seen, or avoided, or anything else you think I might have an answer for. Questions can be posted in the comments section below, and I'll either answer them there, or in a separate post sometime later in the month.

Please take the time to view the previous questions so that we don't wind up with a lot of repetition. I've been asked a lot of good, thought provoking questions in the past as well as some really banal ones, all of which I tried to answer. You can see the previous questions by visiting Ask Me Anything  #1#2 ,  #3#4#5#6 , #7 , #8#9,  #10,  #11,  #12 , #13#14,  #15 , #16#17 , #18 , #19,  #20,  #21#22,  #23#24#25#26#27#28#29#30, and #31.  Answers not found following the questions can be found in the archives section for each associated month under Ask Me Anything.

"Ask Me Anything" will return on the first Monday of November while I dedicate all of next month to my annual Halloween countdown. 

Now ask away.
