I was asked to come up with a look at my “process” for a University class talk, and given that no assignment required more process than the story I contributed to First Second’s recent release “Above The Dreamless Dead”, I went there. http://us.macmillan.com/abovethedreamlessdead/dbtmp17673
The following details the creation of page 1 of a six page adaptation. Follow me into my personal No Man’s Land, will you?
Last Saturday (October 25th) The Dylan Thomas Circle Of Vancouver mounted a small production featuring music and a live monologue by actor Damon Claderwood as Dylan in honour of the imminent 100th birthday. I wrote roughly half the monologue– which brought us up to Dylan’s final days in New York. Unfortunately, the epilogue written to accompany it didn’t play that well and pretty much everyone wanted to get to the cake, so we dropped it. I decided on the eve of his actual birthday– the 27th– to turn my lost bit of writing into this sketchbook strip.
I’m posting it late, which I think Dylan would appreciate. I hope he’ll forgive me for daring to embody his persona both in the live version and here– even for a select audience.

I usually like my SynchroMisty moments of the day to be quick and dirty, but the unveiling of this clue requires too many pictures to be isolated to one little instagram. Today’s headspace: Post Always Record…
As the title suggests I will be at Fan Expo Vancouver this weekend, April 18-20 http://www.fanexpovancouver.com/. There is however, a chance I may not make the Friday evening.
The program erroneously suggests I will only be signing at the Comic Legends Legal Defense booth, but that’s just on Sunday 1-2pm (please come out and support!). Plenty of other Vancouver comic talent will be haunting the Artist Alley aisles– including the one and only Rebecca Dart, Robin Bougie, Steve Rolston, Jason Copland, Ed Brisson, and many more.
Table PB16– see you there, okay?
Because this train can’t be stopped.
Because it demanded a sequel.
