Update, Batkid and an announcement!

Posted on

Hey folks! Hope this post finds you all well and ready for Thanksgiving. Lately I have been hard at work on wrapping up the development of a few animated series which I look to pitch with my agent pal in Los Angeles in the next few weeks or, at the latest, the beginning of next year. We are very excited about the properties and I can’t wait to share more with y’all as this endeavor moves further along. Stay tooned (yuk yuk)…

Just a little over a week ago I was honored to be a part of a special day for a very brave 5-year-old named Miles. On the 15th of November the Make-A-Wish Foundation transformed the city of San Francisco into Gotham City to make young Miles’ dream of fighting crime alongside his hero Batman come true. The full story about that day can be read here and here. Miles is a true superhero fighting one of the scariest villains anyone could ever face, leukemia. Andrew Farago of the Cartoon Art Museum enlisted the help of several cartoonists to help make Miles’ day even more special with personalized Batman-themed drawings. Among those involved were Graham Nolan, Betsy Streeter and myself. From pictures and videos I’ve seen of the day it looks as though Miles had an amazing time and to have any hand in that, however small, is a wonderful feeling. Keep fighting Miles!
