Con Bug… and a sketch

Well, I spent the weekend on my back shivering, coughing, sneezing and blowing my nose. Yep– I caught one hell of a cold from SOMEONE in Baltimore. A phenomenon in recent years at comic book shows is that everyone I sign comics for or sketch something for wants to shake hands (not just with ME– all the comics professionals I talk to have noticed it) . I’ve always figured it could lead to a cold like this–but I guess I’ve been lucky until now. I was feeling just a bit shaky on Friday when I went to the gym to work out– and by the time I got home, my sinuses were scratchy and I was blowing my nose even more than usual (I’ve always had rather runny sinuses, but this is ridiculous!). By Saturday morning, I could barely get out of bed– and that was just to go downstairs and lay on the couch all day. I went through an entire roll of paper towels blowing my nose on Saturday alone. Why paper towels and not tissues? They were nearby and I was feeling too wiped to even get up to go get something softer.

Sunday wasn’t much better– but today I’m feeling like I’m starting to come out of it. I haven’t been this hard hit by a cold in a long time. Hell, I can’t even remember the last time I even HAD a cold. But this has only served to set me even further behind in my deadlines on FF. I don’t know how I’m going to make it–but I’ll find a way.

Here’s another commission from BALTIMORE COMICON. Thanks to Russ Anderson for sending me the scan!
