VidFest Presentation

  • 78
    This is a loosely chronological survey of my work from my teenage fanzine artwork to screenshots of The Matrix Online, for which I wrote story continuity over the first few years of its existence. SF illustration, movie storyboards, advertising art and plenty of Concrete and other comics work included. It was part of my talk with Mark Verheiden, then a Battlestar Galactica writer/producer, to Vidfest 2007 in Vancouver BC.

I had no idea you were going to through so much personally. I’ve actually been ignorant enough to go around asking “when is there going to be a new Concrete series” not knowing the medical struggles you and your wife have been going through.

I’ve been a maniacal fan of your Concrete work, but health and family always come first.

I myself was bitten by a deer tick in September of 2009. At first I had no idea it happened. I assumed I was bit by a bee. I didn’t even feel the bite, but saw a slight mark on my leg that evening. As the days progressed, the mark got darker…and hotter!

Eventually, the area that I was bit turned a strange greenish/yellow, with a dark red circle around it. With the exception of it being hot to the touch, it didn’t hurt. My wife saw it though and instantly told me I needed to see the doctor.

I walked into the doctor’s office and without him even seeing me, his nurse took one look at me and said “you have Lyme disease”. She got my doctor right away and he confirmed it. He said the area of infection was called a “target” and that I was very fortunate that my body reacted the way it did. He said a lot of people don’t get the same reaction that I got. In fact, some do not get any reaction at all, and left untreated, the disease slowly gets absorbed into your blood-stream causing severe body pains, bordering on crippling.

He said my reaction was actually text-book and said I should model for a Physician’s Journal. My luck, the one time in my life I was asked to model, and it was for a disease. I was put on antibiotics for 10 days, and haven’t had any symptoms since. I still have a slight mark where the tick bit me though. Hard to believe something so small can inflict such damage.

Perhaps there’s a storyline hidden in there for a future Concrete adventure?

Anyway, I look forward to the day when you can post that both you and your wife are fully recovered and healthy and that you’re working on a new series that will be seeing print.

Get well soon. God bless, George Travlos

i am sorry, but glad you are on the mend and that your wife seems to be faring well.

Odd, but the man in the before photo looks just like Larry Munro.

i had a bad year too in 2009 like you i'm glad to see the back of it , one thing that was bad for me was a trapped nerve in the neck and shoulder which caused a minor heart attack and made me not draw for 6 weeks which was terrible for me and the bank also swollen legs and feet due to thrombosis ..who says we artists have a charmed life being self employed with illness is no joke but i guess artists have to suffer for their art ...isn't that what they say?

I hope the last few months have treated you and Elizabeth better Paul. I'll check back.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
