From across the pond NIGHT BUSINESS received a nod from prominent UK indie comic creator, Rob Jackson, on the Forbidden Planet International blog. Rob listed the first two issues of NIGHT BUSINESS as some of his favorite comics of 2009. Check it out here.

I did this sketch of David Bowie in Sean T. Collins sketchbook devoted to the rock icon at SPX this year. He just posted a few of the sketches from the book over at Robot 6 blog. (Ben Katchor's sketch and quote is particularly funny). Sean handed me a few magazines which contained many photos of Bowie in his various forms. I told him to come back in an hour or so. I picked a Ziggy-era mode. Bowie is fun to draw. I never would've guessed. The result was a sort of Night Business-esque version of the man.
Also, check out many of the other artists who have provided Bowie sketches for Sean's book here. It's an impressive roster.
