I have to say that this year is quite possibly the best and worst year I have known. Earlier this year my mother was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer and my grandmother recently passed away. I can't say that this hasn't affected me. This has been a long and stressful year and it's been a little hard to find the strength to move forward when things seem like they are going wrong.
"When life gives you lemons you make lemonade". Despite this I got to work on two successful animated shows Metalocalypse and Black Dynamite and I got to draw my first comic miniseries. I also reconnected with my family.
I also wanted to apologize to the fans of Charismagic: the Death Princess for the lateness of issue two. My goal with the book was to have it come out on schedule but unfortunately life doesn't follow the script.
I am currently finishing off the final five pages of the book and I can't wait for you guys to see it.
Looking forward to 2013, you're going to see a lot from me, well at least I hope you are I have a tutorial in Photoshop magazine coming, the last half of Charismagic: the Death Princess, Charismatic volume two and some miscellaneous editorial artwork for I also will be making the rounds at the comic shows.

Here's to you 2013

Enjoy Olana of Charismagic: the Death Princess all dolled up in her New Year's outfit.
Happy New Year from the Death Princess by E-Mann

Awwwwwwww buddy :( I didn't know about some of this. Let me know if you ever need an ear or just someone to be around, okay? This comes as a bit of a shock to see and I'm so sorry to hear about it. Let me know if I can do anything for you. You're one of my favorite people and I don't like seeing this sort of thing happening so please let me know if there's anything a friend can provide. Love ya buddy and hang in there.

I'm sorry to hear that its been such a rough year for you and your family --- my deepest sympathies for your grandmother, and my prayers are with you and your mother.

Your career, on the other hand, sounds like it's seriously taking off --- Best of luck on your comic work!
I know Metalocalypse is created by Titmouse, but I didn't realize they also worked on Black Dynamite. What have you worked on for each of those shows?

Any chance you'll have a table set up with Chris Beaumont at MoCCA this coming year?
