I'm hoping to have the first issue available digitally from Iverse and Comixology by the end of February. And I'm also pleased to announce that Ian Nichols has taken open the editorial duties. Thanks Ian, I really appreciate your help with this.
Last Friday was the opening of an art show which featured a number of pieces from my art collection as well as a selection of work by other artists. I had a great time and got to meet Syd Mead. I even had a Titanic moment. A couple of folks who had worked at Disney, Rick Law and Mindy Johnson, commented on a Jon Whitcomb drawing of Alice in Wonderland that was in the show. "You do know that is Kathy Beaumont and she lives just down the street." Mindy put in a call to Kathy to tell her the news. Apparently Kathy, who was the model for Alice and the voice of Wendy in Peter Pan, was a big fan of Whitcomb's work, but had no idea he had done of drawing of her. I'm looking forward to meeting her; I have lots of questions.

Here is link to an article by the great Disney artist Floyd Norman about the piece:
And here are a couple of links to some of the photos from the show:
And of course the show itself is up for another month if you are in the LA area.
