Hey everyone! I was at a fantastic launch party over the weekend for the 2012 Alberta Winter Games! We were treated to a music by the talented The Bird Sang Song, as well as Juno nominated John Wort Hannam, who was not only hilarious and a great performer, but also wrote the theme song to the games! I was invited to this VIP party/concert because I've been asked to write and illustrate a limited edition comic for it! It will highlight each of the events of the games as well as give a little info and history where I can fit it in. It's going to feature three characters, one of which is Kona, the official mascot of the games. I'll admit it was harder to write than I thought it was going to be, but I'm happy with the result and now I am busy finishing all the artwork. I'm going to be sharing a number of the pages over the next few months before the games launch in February, as well as some process stuff. So stay tuned for more!

Take care everyone!
