A Golden Moment of Truth!

Egads...what a poetic sounding blog title :)
I have not yet read the new Wonder Woman which is part of the 52 relaunch, but I am looking forward to it. I love Cliff Chiang's art. Go check out his site which is full of his fantastic work.

Guys With Pencils!

Hey all,
Have you ever been scrolling through the pages of this here blog and thought to yourself "I wonder what J.Bone sounds like? Is he monotone like a robot? Lilting and whispery like a poet? Does he yell like a wrestler and use cuss words?"
Well, wonder no more because I've recorded a podcast with the very funny, highly likable GUYS WITH PENCILS (aka Andrew Murray and Adam Hines - both artists you should check out). And, yes, I use cuss words.

Actually, this is my second podcast with Andrew and Adam. In my first we just talked about ME, and comics and movies and stuff. This new podcast deals with a weightier subject - Depression. I won't go into details because I want you to listen to the podcast, but I will say that I was very happy to discuss depression with the guys. I think Mental Health is just as important as physical health (in fact they often go hand-in-hand) and that we really need to remove the stigma attached to discussing mental health.

Please, if you're having mental health problems speak to a professional - your doctor. In the podcast I talk about Bronwyn Fox's book POWER OVER PANIC which has helped me greatly dealing with my own issue. Check out the link for more information about Panic Attacks and Anxiety.
The cartoon posted above was drawn after reading Eckhart Tolle's A NEW EARTH. I wish it was so easy to shed your "sad skin".

Retroactive Update!

It's a retroactive update because I like to update on Monday but it's really Tuesday so we'll just pretend it's Monday and not Tuesday.

So, this is another version of my Retroactive Wonder Woman cover drawn in my own style! I mostly liked how the original turned out -- but I really quite prefer drawing cartoony. Part of me thinks about how fun it would be to re-draw the entire script in my own way...but then I remember that I've got work to do and don't have time to draw the whole book again :)

Happy Back to School Day (for those of you with kids or who are kids or who are going to University/College, etc...)
