I’m holding off on booking my return flight(s) to Vancouver until I get a few things settled here in Toronto. Between tying up these various loose ends, I’ll also take the opportunity to catch up with friends coming into town: Anne-Marie from Montreal, my old Stargate co-worker Jennifer Johnson, and – surprise, surprise – blog favorite and Special Features Producer Ivon Bartok.
I’ve decided to take the rest of the year off to recharge and watch Dark Matter, my scifi comic book series come together under the watchful eye of Dark Horse editor Patrick Thorpe. I know he must be tired of hearing me say how much I love artist Garry Brown’s pencils, but I can’t help it. I do! Check out his cover for issue #1 (above). You’ll all get a sneak peek at more of the artwork for Dark Matter in an upcoming Previews solicitation. Make sure to get down to your local comic shop and tell them to stock up. Reserve now to avoid disappointment! In the meantime, you can check out an interview Garry did in which he discusses his process and influences: interview. Then, head on over to peruse the amazing work on this sketch blog – omegasketch.blogspot.com – featuring not only Garry’s work but that of over a dozen other talented artists.

His very own bento box complete with heart-shaped figs, cherries, blueberries, banana, oatmeal kuma-chan, hiyoko, and (unedible) panda!
Carl was thrilled –
And then remembered he had a full day of work ahead of him –
Now that I’m no longer office-bound, Akemi no longer has to wake up at 6:00 a.m. to make me my bento. So, for now, I’ll simply have to hold on to the memory of the last masterpiece she crafted for me:
To those of you asking – yes, now that I have the time, I will wrap up my SG-1 reminiscences with a reflection on the show’s final season.
Off for drinks tonight with Alexander, Sarah, and others.
