I look forward to dressing up in costume tonight! I try to celebrate the day every year and I have the photos to prove it! Take a look at a few outfits over the years! The first shot is of my Toga costume from last year. I went to a nutty Toga party in Bel Air with everyone in Ancient Roman dress!
The second photo is my standard Samurai outfit. I keep it around and I have worn it for years! The last photo was taken at the old Marvel bullpen. I wore a Joker costume at the Halloween party there. I think it was 1992. It was a white tuxedo that I spray painted purple and a wig I painted green. I had a lot of fun in that outfit!
I plan on meet my GF later tonight and we will go to the parade later. Photos to come soon!

In an earlier post, I wrote about what I found on an old VHS tape. It was the TV pilot for 'Generation X' based on the Marvel Comic of the same name. It had most of the characters, but I did not remember the book well enough to know if it was entirely faithful to the comic. I tried to watch it but it was lame. In fact, the best part about the show was the end. They showed one the actors in uniform in the last couple of minutes!

I found an old Video tape in storage today. It was the pilot episode of a 'Generation X' TV show that ran on FOX in 1996. I think a friend taped the show for me and I recorded some other stuff after it. Also on the tape was an episode of 'Lois and Clark', a bunch of old commercials and an entire local TV newscast. It seems like there were constant rainstorms hitting California and I simply HAD to tape the Channel 7 news program.
So I recognized one of the news presenters as Laura Diaz. This was 11 years ago and she is now working at Channel 2. She looked so much younger on the tape, I had to compare it to how she looks today.

I am working on an interesting job for Moonstone Books. They asked me to draw illustrations to accompany a Phantom Novel. It's like the old adventure magazines like Argosy or Galaxy. Those were great periodicals that printed art with great writing.
This is the first drawing of ten. I've always wanted to draw the Phantom and the story was written by Tom DeFalco!

Halloween at the Marvel bullpen used to be a lot of fun. There were games and prizes and everybody seemed to enjoy the late afternoon party. I think this photo was taken in 1989 and I was competing in a screaming contest! The guy with the long hair is Steve. I think I'll try to post more Halloween themed photos as we get closer to Oct. 31.
And yes, I won the screaming contest!
