It’s funny… I don’t think I ever would have imagined, all those years ago when I first got into the comics biz as a pro, that I would be working on a portion of a SPIDER-HAM story for Marvel. It’s one of those odd– and very fun– twists that I never could have seen coming my way. That seems to define my career up to this point, though…. things come my way that I never would have predicted would happen. Some artists control their path to the utmost, making calculated jumps to specific projects in an attempt to always be moving forward and upward in status and popularity. Me– I’ve tended to sort of passively go with the flow in the hopes that the kind of upward path others determinately set for themselves would come my way. I have to say that I’ve had more success in my comics career than I ever imagined I ever would up to this point… but the path hasn’t always been a smooth one, by any means. There have been road blocks, missteps and trip-ups…. but I don’t regret any of it. And I CERTAINLY don’t regret working on this portion of the SPIDER-HAM SPECIAL I’m drawing. It’s one of those strange turns that I just have to smile at.

For those of you who may not have seen last week’s JOE FRIDAY’S column over at NEWSARAMA, they posted the full-color cover of the ULTIMATE CIVIL WAR FEATURING SPIDER-HAM special that I was honored to be able to draw. It was a blast to do– I don’t think I’ve had as much fun drawing something as an assignment in, really, as long as I can remember. I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed drawing it.


OK… that’s it for one ham-filled day……

This is Entry 310.
