Sadly, tonight’s update cannot be a happy occasion. My uncle Tim Burke passed away today at the age of 64 from a heart attack. Please keep his children, my cousins Kirchy and Danny, in your thoughts and prayers.
Now here’s something awesome! Just did a “Gray Man” interview with Paul Taylor (creator of “Wapsi Square“), talking about his upcoming art book “Paul Taylor Illustrations“, showing off all of his original, non-”Wapsi Square” art. Come check it out, or check out “Wapsi Square” itself if you are so inclined.
Did a quick interview with Justin “JewWario” Carmical for his series “Con Men” when he passed by my table at C2E2! I’ve been a huge fan of his for a while, so it was an honor to meet him and to have him feature me on his show. He even bought a copy of “Volume One” and had me do a quick $1 sketch for him. Thanks again Justin!
As I’m sure some of you have noticed lately, “Oh Goodie!” has been ravaged by spam posts. I’ve tried to resolve this once-and-for-all as of late, but it’s proven impossible for me to install security plug-ins because my host server is running on an old version of MySQL. A version, I’m told, was outright discontinued three years ago. I tried to install a plug-in, and the whole site went dead. My host offered to restore it from the latest back-up…for $100. I refer it to Alexa, she logs into the FTP, and fixes it in two minutes.
It’s for this reason that Alexa is helping me move “Oh Goodie!” to a new host soon. I’m tired of this and can’t take it anymore. This will be done in conjunction with some minor cosmetic changes to the site, mostly with the look and layout. If you see any changes over the next week or two, one of those two is why.
Thank you all for your patience.

Just posted the second “Gray Man” interview! This one is with Martha Hull, a wonderful woman I met at Art Spark, who just made her latest book “Untimely Death Alphabet” entirely in scratchboard. Come check it out, and check out Martha’s work as well!
