well, I don't know if I'll be able to color pages (or walk, draw, write, etc.) this week for this site...I'm once again experiencing horrible lower back pain that is keeping me from doing anything besides reading Parker novels while lying on the couch. I tried to lean forward in my drawing chair in order to color the next Sam Hill page in relative comfort, but it just wasn't gonna happen. Every time I try to sit in my drawing chair to do anything, I can hardly stand up again--and when I do I'm hunched over worse than the Hunchback Of Notre Dame.
Hopefully, by Thursday i'll be relatively better and I can post some new stuff--what a crappy way to relaunch a website! I just started coloring and posting stuff two weeks ago and already I'm out-of-commission.
The day after Thanksgiving, I experienced horrible back pain, but was doing better by the following Tuesday, so I was able to get it together and color (Sam Hill stuff) and draw new pages of Killer In My Sleep before the week was shot to hell. But now, my back is fucked all over again.
Well, got to rest up some more and read the eighth book in the Parker series which I'm up to now--The Handle. Wish me luck in my recovery...
Today's installment of Killer In My Sleep features a new character, Governor Spradlin--inspired by the fine American actor, the late, great G.D. Spradlin of The Godfather 2, Apocalypse Now and North Dallas Forty fame. Like J.T. Walsh, if this man appeared in a film for only ten minutes, that film was worth watching if only for those ten minutes... Sadly, we lost G.D. last year, however I urge anyone who loves film to check out the fine features listed above and many others starring this great talent. Enjoy today's strip...
Just got a box of The Cavalier Mr. Thompson, Spanish edition published by the good folks at La Cupula in the mail today! It's a beautiful hardcover edition with non-glossy paper interior pages. Now I wish I had used non-glossy paper for the U.S. version. I think it was actually more expensive. Anyway, check it out--The Cavalier in brilliant orange with a yellow die:
