It's Been Over A Month???

Well, slap my hand! So much for posting every week, eh? Time flies when you're busy. Here's what's been happening in the world of the Grays...

Mick has been catching up with work, finally! For awhile there things were pretty crazy with pages being behind schedule before Mick even had them in hand! Mick is really enjoying working with Barry Kitson. They've both wanted to work together for years, but the timing was always off. Now they're having a blast! It's truly a mutual admiration society for these two. Mick has been very lucky with his projects over the years. He's gotten to work with people he admires like Barry, J.H. Williams and Ryan Sook. To top things off, Mick was offered another 2 year contract with DC Comics! He was thrilled. It's an honor to work for such an icon, as well as feel your work is appreciated. He is truly blessed.

I, Holly, have been working around the clock to get items up on eBay, design t-shirts for the cafepress shops, update Mick's website and produce Mick's inker video. The video will be tons of fun, with lots of laughs and cameos from many famous artists. I'm also scrambling to get some marketing plan together for promoting our various projects. A new avenue I discovered is YouTube.com where I can post our videos for the world to see. If people enjoy the videos enough they'll hopefully check out our websites. Right now I have our wedding video, our entry for the Super Soap Weekend contest and my student film project from 1988. Next up I plan to make a short video of Gen doing her art and have an link to Gen's art commission page on eBay. For only 99 cents (or more... further donations are accepted) you can have an original piece of art created just for you to your own specification.

Gen is very excited about selling her art on eBay so she can save up to go to Rock School. We all watched the documentary last week (not realizing is was rated R!!!). But Gen LOVED it! She isn't bothered by foul language. She understands that some adults talk that way and kids shouldn't do that. She said she wanted to be a drummer. We have a budding young rock musician two houses down from us who has a drum kit. Mick is going to ask him if he would take a few minutes to show Gen a bit about the drums. We'll let you know how it goes. If anybody has an electric drum kit (with headphone jack!!!) to spare, we'll be happy to take it off your hands.

That's all for now. I'll try to update more often, I promise!

Holly :)
