Here is the drawing I did for the charity auction at the New York Comic Con (October 10-13), honoring Moon Maid’s appearance in DICK TRACY. Crack Tracy colorist Shane Fisher is working on a color version and I’ll have posters of that one for sale at my table, B-3.
At this year’s Baltimore Comic Con, artist Joe Staton and Tracy consultant Jim Dougherty, on behalf of the entire creative team of Dick Tracy, were presented with the 2013 Harvey Award for “Best Syndicated Strip!”
The Harvey Awards are one of the comic book industry’s oldest and most respected awards. The Harveys recognize outstanding achievements in over 20 categories, ranging from Best Artist to the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame. They are the only industry awards both nominated by and selected by the full body of comic book professionals.

Joe will be appearing at the Albany Comic Con on June 16, 2013.
Yesterday, our designer Tory Ettlinger sent off the pdfs to the printer for JD SHAPES UP, the most recent medical/health book that Hilarie and I have packaged for Boston Children’s Hospital under the guidance of Dr Athos Bousvaros. This one took three years, off and on. Involved in the process were Nancy Silberkleit, Janice Chiang, Matt Webb (world’s leading colorist of food and intestines), Maria Goudiss, and lots of doctors and health professionals from the hospital. Congratulations to us all.
