Say Hi to Cole Johnson!

This post took longer to get to than I meant it to, but now I know what my friends who are parents meant when they said you don't get much sleep when your baby first arrives!
That aside, please join me in welcoming Cole Jeanette Johnson into the world! She was born last Tuesday at 2:41 pm in sunny Burbank, CA. She's 21 inches long and weighs about 8 lbs now. She came out into the world barely crying and shot me such a sweet look that it was love at first sight. She's healthy and happy and easy to get along with. Karen and I are having a ball with her.
Here's a couple of photos that they took at the hospital---She does a great Caesar impression, our stoic little Colonel....

Baby, get out here!

Sorry to say there's no baby arrival to report. Karen's almost two weeks past the due date, and we've got an appointment with the baby doctor again on monday---Maybe we'll see some activity after that....
In the meantime, Karen's folks have been here waiting patiently with us for The Colonel's arrival. Karen's mom has been walking her around the mall, we walked around Disneyland..There has been much walking...So now we're all sleeping better, but no baby yet.
Up in my studio, I just finished a new Cover for Devil's Due and Tim Seeley's comic, HACK/SLASH. I had a GREAT time with it, and was pleased and flattered that I could get my friend, Paul Wee to ink it for me. You can see Paul's extraordinary work on his blog, which I've linked up with on the right side of this blog. It's full of beautiful work, and if you are not familiar with Paul's work, you'll get a big kick out of it, I promise.
I've also been working away at my graphic novel, THE BLACK LAKE. I've got a friend coloring the first promo piece, which will be on display here as soon as I can get it here. Stay tuned....
Finally, if you've been waiting around for a commission, some good news---I've started working on them again...DT, yours is almost done. Thanks for all your patience everyone!
That's all the news that's fit to print right now---If you've got a moment, check out the link I've posted to Brian Stelfreeze's blog! It's really cool, and Brian is one of my favorite artists and a great teacher.
