Paper Cuts

First, the sad news: Thursday saw the last issue of All Access, the weekly art and entertainment tabloid that has been the home for my comic strip, Those Funky Idiots, for the last few years. The magazine is moving from the page to the screen to become an online entity. It’s disappointing to see the old format go, but it’s understandable in these harsh economic times for newspapers (and practically everyone else!). However, the new site for AA looks pretty sharp and promising.

Now, the good news: Despite this change, Those Funky Idiots will continue to run every Thursday in the Life section of The Star Press and will appear on the All Access site as well! Exciting news for me and hopefully for you as well! Of course, none of this would be possible without the guidance and generosity of Michelle Kinsey, the editor of All Access and reporter extraordinaire. Thanks for everything, Michelle!

For those who saw the last issue of AA, you probably noticed there was no Idiots within its pages and that was all my fault. I never did turn in a new strip for that week and I’m currently kicking myself for doing that because it would have been nice to have the Idiots go down with the ship! However, it’s even nicer to know the strip will continue to run well into the future!

Twenty Days

I never did mention I was recently cast in Smoke on the Mountain, a gospel musical-comedy that will be playing at the Main Street Studio Theatre in February. I’m playing Pastor Mervin Oglethorpe and we’ve been in rehearsals for the last three weeks. Things are going pretty smoothly so far. The music and the singing sound great and the cast is populated with a talented bunch of folks. On top of that my friends, Judy and Jerry Cole, are directing and they are doing a bang up job putting things together. Fun times!

Of course, since I’m in a new show, I’m working first shift for a few weeks at Touchy Feely Fotos. I don’t mind first shift though I miss the extra money second shift brings, but I guess that’s the price an artist must pay for his art (Did I just type that with a straight face?)!

What else? I just got an account at Twitter. Of course, I blame John Oak Dalton for that.
