GOODBYE YEAR OF THE ROOSTER. HELLO DOG.

This past week I've been working on an essay for an upcoming Smart Pop Superman anthology. The essay will be good, once it's finished. I decided to take a short break, and post my "best of" for this past year. This year has been exciting. Kennedy is getting older, turning into a little person, which is amazing. Melissa has been working hard as co-manager at the Fast Forward online shop. Every year, our relationship grows stronger and more meaningful. She's my best friend, and I know I'm fortunate to have such a great family. 2005 also marked the year that my first comic book series was published. In the process, I've met some incredibly talented people. There's so much I want to do in 2006. We'll see where it all leads. (click here to read last year's best of)
