Hope everyone is having a great holiday vacation! I should've stayed at Hogwarts for Christmas.

Pokemon Blue was the first videogame I played in my own house, and I suppose that's one of the reasons I have such an attachment to the series. Up until then, my only access to videogames was at friends' houses, since my parents weren't too keen on bringing me into that world. In 1998, I rented a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Blue from Blockbuster video and played it like crazy. I made it to the Elite Four, but couldn't beat the Champion. I had to return the cartridge before I was able to finish the game.

One of my favorite parts of this whole big series is going through designs and finding real-world clothing to match up with the characters. I don't know why, I just love it. This is Gold, who went on a great Pokemon adventure and still managed to send money to his mom every once in awhile.

This is a small drawing running in today's Wall Street Journal. It accompanies an article about how aging musicians can feel constrained by a boxed set and all the finality that that implies. The article is about a specific anecdote from Elvis Costello, but this guy is just a stand in for older rockers in general.
Pretty quick turnaround -- about a day and a half from phone call to due date, but I still managed to get something I'm pretty happy with.
You can read the article on the WSJ's website here.
Big thanks to AD David Bamundo.
