Cover Art for The Protector

Cover Art for The Protector

This is a sneak preview of artwork I just finished. It's the cover for the book The Protector by NL Gassert from Seventh Window Publications. My friends Chandler and David served as the inspiration.

The publisher just sent me over a mock-up of what the finished piece will look like.

Homewrecker Houseboy

My pal David (bartender at Akbar) is posting a webisodic series he made to YouTube.

It's a melodramatic, gay soap opera. Hilarious stuff. Or at least something to enjoy while the strike is on. Hey, maybe ABC should put it one after they run out of new Desperate Housewives!

STYLE WARS: Nerding Up a Fashion Event

Style Wars at CinespaceJanet Harvey and I were covering House of Diehl's STYLE WARS: Style Battle Championship LA for

It was an awesomely cool event where 8 designers competed against each other in 5 minute real-time design challenges and runway walk-offs. (Sort of like an MC battle.)

The styles very "couture, impossible to wear" designs, and one of the judges was Jody Watley who is still incredibly beautiful. (You can read more about it here.)

At one point, in reference to the design pictured below, we had the following exchange:

Me: Hey doesn't that look like something out of Dune?
Janet: Like a Bene Gesserit?
Me: Exactly!
Janet: Wow, did we just totally nerd up a fashion event?

Gay Gamer Reveals Results of Coming Out on Halo 3

Found this over on
"A gay gamer wrote in and tipped us off to what happened when he decided to come out to his fellow online players during a recent game of Halo 3 by using the gamertag "xxxGayBoyxxx". He recorded the video (audio NSFW).

"xxxGayBoyxxx writes, on his YouTube page: 'Other than maybe a quick 'hello' to the chat room or a request to 'veto', I didn't ever say anything first or taunt anyone. What was said by these players was initiated by them with no provocation on my part. The vast majority of the times I wouldn't even respond back so the audio would be clear.'"
