"Said package" arrived safe and sound.

For others reading this, there is a very good reason why Michael and I are using the term "said package". I'll explain all on February 6th and should have a very cool photo of what was sent to share with the forum at that point.

Explanation time...

Said package was a gift for my wife's 30th birthday which was today.

A month or so back she was looking at Michael's Birth trade paperback and was completely taken by a sketch of a horse-like water creature named "Uncle Face". As it so happened, I had been e-mailing back and forth with Michael following the From The Sketchbook feature mentioned above.

At first I asked if he had ever made a print available of that character. He said no, but explained that the original was framed and on sale. I was blown away that it was available and he was good enough to sell and ship it to me.

That sketch was my main present to my wife on her 30th birthday and she LOVED IT! It completely knocked her socks off this evening. "Uncle Face" will be proudly displayed on the wall of her office at the University of Kentucky starting tomorrow and I have Michael to thank for making me her birthday hero.

Michael, you made her day and you have my thanks!

I'm really glad she liked it, It means a lot that my work was for a milestone b-day like that. Ugh, i'm only a year and a half away from my own 30th

Since this thread about the sketch I did gets looked at so much, I think I should take advantage of that...

My book, "BIRTH" is about to come out and I need to get some last minute orders to fill the Diamond quota!!!

there are a ton of places you can go to preview it including my site thebirthofnovo.com (you can go by clicking the banner signature below)

anyway, check it out and if you like what you see then head on down to your local comic shop and order or request BIRTH DIAMOND ORDER CODE: DEC073331
PRICE: $9.95 / 88pages
