      Hey Guys, sorry for the silence. I've had to take on an illustration job that's been taking up most of time these days. It's a graphic novel that's coming out next year from Candlewick Press, about a young female Iraq war vet who comes home with a lot of mental anguish. It's a wonderful moving story, 160 pages, and the publisher gave me an advance I couldn't refuse. I'll be working on pages of Imitating Life in between this project and hopefully will have it finished by this time next year. I'll try to get some other incentives out to you guys in the meantime; signed prints, etc. Thanks again for your support, and patience.

      Got "Failure"! Very nice composition of different elements. You certainly are very good at portraying stuff that actually imitates life. Keep it up!

      FYI: If you don't post stuff as an "Update" it doesn't go out to the backers. Had no idea there was updated info in this comments until I came and looked today.

      I too would love a copy of FAILURE if it isn't any extra trouble, take all the time you need to complete the project though. Still very excited here!

      I'd love a copy of Failure too, Karl. Understand (being a fellow artist) about having to pay the bills, but look still looking forward to Imitating Life. The initial page images really captivated me. :)
