    Sorry I've been away a few days guys. I needed to take a break to focus on some things and get some web issues in order.

    I'm not sure how many of you have visited my online portfolio before. It is (was) in my User Profile. However, the issues I've been having with Geocities are just getting too much to handle. Aside from pitifully low bandwidth, their upload process is limited to 20 files at a time (which also eats up bandwidth) and they have added these side frames to their sites that are just the most ridiculously annoying thing I've ever encountered. They used to have this tiny little add layer that appeared in the top corner. Now they've changed it into a retractable side frame that's about 200 pixels long, and takes so long load that even on broadband I've had to CTRL+ALT+Delete the window just to get it to unstick. And aside from all that, I ran out of space for new art work about two years ago, so it was time for something different.

    My wedding website was also hosted at Geocities, and quite frankly, I don't think any of my family members have seen it because it keeps crashing every time I add a picture. So was that due for a move as well.

    Considering I've had the Eon Press Presentsâ„¢ domain since before my daughter was born, and since I've been paying for this webspace since before my daughter was born, I figured it was time for a little centralization.

    For the time being my online portfolio and my wedding website have been combined and placed as the main feature on www.eonpresspresents.comâ„¢.

    Please, if you have a little time, take a look at my new site. I've spent hours trying to perfect the interface I've created and I think I've finally come up with something fluid.

    I also need your assistance to check the bandwidth on my domain. I don't pay a lot, but based on the images I've hot linked form there, it seems to have been able to handle it well enough. Now is time for a true test. Click around, check the links. I've endeavored to make even the most mundane items interesting.

    If you've seen my old Geocities site, then you'll see a lot of the same stuff with a fair amount of new content added. There is something there for my Yu-Gi-Oh friends as well if you want to take a look.

    Also note that I will make a concerted effort to make updates to the main page, even if it's only a progress report on the upcoming online comics that will be the focus of Eon Press Presentsâ„¢.

    I hope you enjoy this website, a great deal of my heart an soul went into its production.

    You know, SOME people thank those who PMed them asking where they were after they return from a long break. SOME people show appreciation of those who missed them while they were gone.

    Brilliant website. I enjoy "All Bad Things...". Your talent and creativity is amazing. *knocks wood* (<- Just a little superstition my mother has implanted in me. It's the only one, I promise. ;))

    Thanks again, CG.

    Jason, I've been busy and had to leave town last night. Dad's in a nursing home and some family has flown in to see him. So I've been busy trying to get all the bugs out of the website before they get here. I suspect this weekend I won't have much time to spend on the forums if I want to spend any with them and tweak the site at the same time. I have several PMs that I have not had time to reply to and over 1500 New Posts to review, all of which I lost late last night, so now I'll have to hunt for them. Not to mention, I behind on Regionals again when I had sworn to myself that wouldn't happen. Your probably not going to see as much as me as I play catch-up and deal with family.

    I'm just messing with you, DJ.

    I think it's an awesome site. Albeit extremely perverted <--I'm not complaining.

    The artwork is awesome . . . well, the vast majority of it is. But I can't help but notice that a few of your female fantasy images are a bit . . . extreme. What I mean by that is the women who look like they'd HAVE to be superheroines just to prevent from falling forward. XD

    Although I do seem to be encountering a bit of a 404.

    And yet, I still make a concerted effort to minimize them where possible. Compared to the trends in comics nowadays, I would say I'm still a little bit conservative. Aside form that, if you look at any of the full body shots I've drawn, there's always a posterior to make sure everything is counter-balanced. How do you think Halle Berry stays upright. ;)

    eonpresspresents.com is down at the moment. Not a big deal to you necessarily, but I know that a lot of my images are hosted from that site and I've sent a lot of people links to information I have stored there. Until I get things worked out you will not be able to access the site, and images, like the ones featured in "All Bad Things..." or my Card Art of the Day review will not show up. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Temporarily, I have moved to www.eonpresspresents.dns2go.com. Special thanks to djp952 for his assistance with the setup. Not all the links are working, but the bulk of the content is still there. I'll be adding some new stiff in a few days.
