My intern prepared marble stone samples for her study. Picture 1. (She is looking at the use of medical chelating agents to remove metallic staining from marble.) I was taking them home to place in a humidity chamber I constructed. Picture 2. I was stopped by coworkers four time getting out of the building to see if I was carrying cookies. I guess we should stop using bakeware to hold samples. All I could think of the rest of the day was the Rockbiter.

Big Congratulations to Bernie Wrightson on being inducted into the Eisner Hall of Fame! 

I can’t think of a person more deserving of this honor. Great artist, great collaborator, great friend. Congratulations, Bernie! 

I was able to meet him this year at Hero Con such a nice guy.

Tree Rats

I have had squirrel troubles for awhile now. They have trashed my workshop eaten through walls and wiring. I caught several in traps and released them across town. It has not made a dent. Today one attacked Lola my chihuahua. That was the final straw, game on squirrels game on.

Was going through old pictures for work and ran across this on from Alexandria National Cemetery. I remember seeing this stone years ago and feeling an empty sadness for the deceased. I guess we do not know any more about Cotton now then when he was alive.
