How Dreams Become Realities.......

Hey everyone. It has surely been a while since my last post. I apologize for that, but things in the world of MARS has been very busy. Busy, in a good way. Lets dive into it!

Bedroom. I have been remodeling my daughters bedroom upstairs in our house for..... a "few" months now. Its really stressful on my wife, though she understands that 2 evenings at the most a week, is hard for one man to get done (even if I get help from a 6th grader occassionally). I think that the room will be wonderful for my girls. I am realizing that I could honestly spend hours in LOWES and I could gut out my entire house. I think my inner "man" has come out. There is just something about building stuff that makes me want to grunt like Tim, the tool man Taylor.
Work. We are moving cars. It has been a good few months. A couple headaches, but we get through. October was my best month ever. I sold over 20 cars. It felt good, and I think I am getting the hang of it. I have also tried to get out in the garage more. Jay, who has worked on cars for 30 years here works everyday. If I want to learn something I dont have to go far. If he doesnt know how to fix it, he WILL figure it out. Really good mechanic. I am learning alot more about what sounds mean in a car. Its very cool.

Disciple 6. Most of you all know my stories of D6, and some are a part of the team. I recently "met" a guy from down under who is interested in doing colour, and ink for the book. This guy is a great artist, and very talented. With Andy doing the pencils, and this guy Matt cleaning things up, it is all falling into place. its a thing of beauty. Words can't describe how good everything with this project feels. I can honestly say I can feel the prayers, and thoughts of my friends and family. There are so many people in my corner on this project. All I can really say is thank you, and i really appreciate the thoughts and prayers. I will leave you now with VISUAL evidence of this amazing trip we are on with Disciple 6.
This is a random sketch I did years ago of Vionne. A much different interpretation from B.W.
One of Andy's first sketches of Robertson Ward. With some adjustments, he nailed Vionne.Some inking and cleaning Baker did, this sketch was becoming completeMatt Bakers coloring is breath-taking. This is one of the main reasons why I approached him. His work is unbelievable. Now, what began as a sketch, I can see standing next to Spidey and Sups. To see something born in a thought, and end up looking like this, even before, if this ever does get published, its just really really fufilling for me right now. to check out Andy's stuff
Next post will be titled "Photo Album" You will get to see the kids I call my own.
