Just a quick note: My friend (and frequent Journal visitor) Rick Tucker kicked me into gear recently, getting me off my ever-spreading duff to list my new sketchbooks in the William Stout Bazaar.

So, I did! They’re both now available!

I look forward to seeing lots of you at my booth at Comic-Con. I’ll be in my usual place, right between Jim Silke & Mike Mignola and my friend Kookie of Kookie Enterprises, and around the corner from Mark Schultz, Gary Gianni and John Fleskes. Visit John’s booth and see the full color preview of our next book, Dinosaur Discoveries, due to hit the streets this Fall. There’ll be two versions, one for little kids and a larger, expanded version for more mature readers and dino-fans (mature dinosaur fan…is that an oxymoron?). And, of course, I’ll be signing my murals books.

So come by and say “Hi!”

    Thanks heaps! I ordered the books last night. Between you and John Flesk this has been a banner week. Of course, there had to be that terrible news this morning…
    Now I’m off to order those flowers.

    Hi Bill; As you were talking about Michale, tortured soul that he was and about the work about him, I see that Michael Whelan had actually painted an album (archaic word)for the 5. I will see you and Mike and John and everyone next week at the convention. Love your journal insights, keep it on. edward

    Hiya Bill,
    The two sketchbooks arrived today. I love the artwork you did for Hippie Jim’s business card for Cosmic Comics off Tropicana in Las Vegas.
    You’re not likely to read this before next Monday but thank you again for the fast shipping and a pair of great looking books (as usual) and have a blast at SDCCI!
