National Holiday

The rain’s finally died off enough for me to be able to sit in my own back garden with the netbook on the garden furniture I purchased about four weeks ago. The rain started a day later. Ha ha.

National holiday here today. Lili’s off having her annual photos taken by our photographer friend Paula, who’s been shooting her once a year since she was born. I’ve got a WIRED UK column to file by the 3rd, and a large and pressing job to get on an editor’s desk before then that’ll determine much of what I’m doing between now and New Year’s Day.

And I’d really like to be developing a new comics project or two, as well.

So, of course, I’m writing a blog entry.

Weird Tales At Whitechapel

This week’s art challenge at Whitechapel was envisioning a new cover and style for WEIRD TALES. Which is a bit cheeky, as WEIRD TALES’ outgoing editor Stephen Segal hangs out there.

But this week’s entries were a bit good. Here’s Raid’s, go and see the rest.

(Also worth noting that Paul Sizer, a Whitechapel regular, was hired to illustrate a story for WEIRD TALES on the strength of his entries in previous versions of the remake/remodel artist challenges at Whitechapel.)
