What I Learned From (Failing At) 24-Hour Comic Day

As I announced here and elsewhere, last weekend I attempted an artistic challenge known as the 24-Hour Comic, wherein the artist tries to create a 24-page comic book in 24 hours. But I didn’t do it alone. I got together with members of a cartoonist organization I belong to—the CLAW— and made the attempt on […]

RPG: Grande Temple of Jing

  Look what arrived this week . . . my contributor’s copy of The Grande Temple of Jing, a Pathfinder compatible mega-ultra-dungeon crawl for characters of ANY level published by Hammerdog Games. This book describes the temple home of the trickster god Jing—a magical labyrinth filled with challenges and treasures suitable for every type of adventurer […]

MANGA: Ultraman v1 Reviewed

I don’t think I’ve talked about it here yet, but one of my current ongoing projects for Viz Media is providing the English Adaptation script for the Ultraman manga, volume 1 of which went on sale over the summer. I’ve really been enjoying working on this book and think that it offers a lot to fans […]

August Wrap-Up . . . September Overview

What? September 1st? Holy cats! Where did August go?!? Okay, it started with Gen Con. And after that I was on the east coast for another ten days visiting family. And since I got back to Seattle I’ve been heads-down on a series of projects that were close to- or over-due. It certainly explains HOW […]

40 Updates Per Month . . . How Did I DO It?!?

The other week, a friend and I were talking about how we were making concerted efforts to re-energize our blogs with more frequent posts and (hopefully) compelling material. He said something about having at one time reliably updating three times a week for nearly a whole year. I didn’t want to show him up, but the […]

Comics: Deadman Wonderland vol. 10

Hey, hey! Look what arrived today! My contributor’s copy of Deadman Wonderland v10! This series started out weird and has just gotten WEIRDER with every volume! It’s certainly kept my attention as I’ve been preparing the English Adaptation scripts. In case you want to check it out for yourself, it’s on sale now!

Comics: Deadman Wonderland vol. 9

I haven’t talked about it much on here, but for the past few years (actually, more like the past TEN years) I’ve been doing localization assignments for Viz Media. Most often that means taking a literally translated script and making sure that the text actually reads in a way that seems natural to an American reader. In […]

Stan! on Sale — Writing

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, due to most of my planned work for November and December having been mothballed (details can be found here), I’ve decided to have try to make up at least some of the income shortfall by having a sale on my work. Yesterday I announced special pricing on […]

Picture Book Month: Why Are Picture Books Important?

As if I needed more reasons to promote my ongoing Kickstarter campaign for The Littlest Shoggoth, it turns out that November is not merely the time of NaNoWriMo, it’s also Picture Book Month! I was, of course completely unaware of that when I picked this as the month to run a fund drive for my […]

A Birthday Poem

As far as I know, no one has ever written a poem about me … until tonight. My friend John Rateliff included this bit of verse in the birthday card he and Janice gave me: Ode to Stan Sometimes Steve and sometimes Stan How to Know who is Da Man? If it’s sometimes Stan and […]
