The Gentlemen of Jamestown pt. 4

Did I mention that this story was the result of a compromise between myself and the editors? Hence, enough exposition to choke something that you would think would have a hearty appetite for exposition, and the Cliff Notes staccato of the panel transitions.

As far as yesterday's election: no, apparently we can't stop acting like jackasses, even for a day. Or, at least, not for the day that mattered. Every state with a discrimination amendment on the ballot passed it, except Arizona (Arizona? Who knew?). The good news is that Project: Gridlock seems to be underway. And there's still hopes that Aspirational Redneck, George Allen, has seen the end of his political ambitions.

Congratulations on one of your dreams coming true last night (even if Dan Savage will have to go back to writing actual columns with Santorum out of office).

Now, about that race in Virginia...

If it's any consolation, this puts all my work for them to shame. I'll have to post some of my stories sometime...

AP is calling George Allen to the sidelines! Cripes alive, I hope that sticks.


Please! Post your pages! I'm really curious to see what other people did for these projects.

Hey Joel, long time no comment! I've missed a lot by dropping out of the blogging world these past couple of months. While I'm not back to blogging, I'm back to checking up on my friends, and I'm delighted to see that the world of Joel is spinning at full speed ^___^ That is so awesome, all the accolades and recognition you're getting lately--and well-deserved, I might add. Keep on keeping on and I'm gonna look for that best of america comics anthology at the store. Hugs and Kisses from CA, Steph

I met Marshall Arisman at his studio last week. He said to tell you hello and asked how you are- I told him you are doing lots of work, married a smart and lovely lady, and are teaching lots of young illustrators in Memphis!
He was happy and said "good, Joel's a good man!"

I liked him a lot. He gave our class quite an amusing talk.

Great to hear from you, Paige! I hope NYC & SVA are treating you and Wes well.

Marshall is quite the personality, isn't he? Given his work, and the fact that he looks like Dennis Hopper, I assumed he'd be a pretty scary guy. What a surprise that he turns out to be a sweetheart.

Thanks Joel, we are doing pretty well despite lack of sleep and time :)

School is great but very challenging.. something is due every day! The design studio is treated with company-like deadlines to get you used to working as such..

I need to continue to post on my blog when i get more time! :)
