Hi dee ho. It's been an eventful weekend. Played a wedding gig on Saturday that ate up nearly my entire day. Spent yesterday catching up, but I did make some time to go to Julia's going away party, which should've been named "going away for just a little while, then coming back" party.

But Friday was the real kicker. I went to a book signing for Brian Azzarello, author of 100 Bullets and Joker, in an attempt to make some connections and hopefully get some new work. I walked up to him and said, "thanks for giving us that quote for the Apocalypse Plan", and he replied, "Oh hey, you're Dan Dougherty! Great work!" This guy is a New York Times bestseller, so I was officially flabbergasted. We talked for a while, and he said some really nice things, and also gave me a lot of hope that I can get some high profile work.

So who knows. Maybe this comics thing isn't a bust after all.


  1. i've found when you make comics, and know the right people, things line up for you better. especialy when the right people find you.

    peace out

  2. If you mix up the letters in Brian Azzarello... You get... Arnie Labrazzor!

    Congratulations, Dan! Brian likes your work, and he reads your blog! You're a freakin' shoe-in!... And, he says 'Peace Out.'... Wierd.

    Yeah, that's right. I said 'Labrazzor.' Like a dog/dinosaur owned by Dr. Seuss.

  3. What is happening? So much subterfuge and mirrors!
