    @mojo - -thanks!

    Love the work, too. Makes me want to dig out MS and give it another shot.

    The rumour is looking quite solid. I've people not willing to on the record but still talking to me about it. Much like last time, I suspect the echo chamber has already kicked in and some of the people who consider themselves deep insiders are passing on slightly garbled info.

    Last time, for instance, I talked to one person who was in conversation with one of the people involved but still managed to have some of the facts wrong and I was talking to two other people I know from the film production side who ended up getting much more of the details right in the end but they didn't know their source was speculating on a significant portion of what he was telling them. At the same time, I was talking to a former editor who was certain he knew what was going on, but was completely off the mark even with the leaks already out there.

    Hope that makes sense. I suspect the rumours are "true enough" and too far along for any Internet furore to stymie this time around.

    Loving all the work here ! Amazing stuff from Richard Pace ( the watchmen comic is awesome, Miranda's Moleskin is killer, Pupato pumped out some serious stuff and Mojo keeps rocking... love it all even if I didn't mention it. I'm very tired I spent the whole week painting murals:

    two walls in a real estate office ...

    ABOVE^ the plastic overlay taped to the wall is going to be put on the window sometime next week

    and another on a internet media company's wall ...

    @mojokingbee - i've found sticking a sheet of bristol board on the tablet can help MS 'feel' a bit more analogue. Fair wears the nibs down though...

    Loving @Mojokingbee's gorilla and @WednesdayWolf's Rattata.
    I don't post here (until now), but I check daily without fail for all of the wonderful talent. Thanks to all for my endless supply of awesome.

    Does this count as art?

    @Neil…I actually stick a glossy comic book page on the tablet to reduce the friction and prolong the stylus nib.
    @renato….Love the hands and the girl falling in space.

    Tonight's page...

    I use a piece of cheap Inkjet paper on my Bamboo, feels a lot more natural to me. I like a bit of resistance when drawing, I think thats one of the reasons I prefer a dip pen over a brush.

    @hey apathy I like the idea of one of your really crowded cityscapes in a real estate office, very fitting and they look great.

    @Hey Apathy - I have a small commission for you. I'll email you later in the week.

    Just a quick note:
    I don't know how well the Sketchbook Project is known, but just in case, as it might interest a few of us - basically, you order a 32-pages sketchbook (25$) that you have to complete by January 31st, 2012. The completed sketchbook are then integrated into a tour that takes place during the year (USA and Canada, also England and Australia for the sketchbooks of their respective continents). After the tour, the sketchbooks become part of the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Art Library, where it will remain available for public viewing. You can also have your sketchbook scanned, so that it's included in a virtual exhibition afterwards.
    The link to the project
    Subscriptions are open until November 2nd.
