That Time My Dad And I Rode In A Car With The Guy That Won The Indy 500

Hot lap with Juan Pablo Montoya.

There is nothing like a long weekend to dust off the old blog. Sunday was the 99th running of the Indy 500. I spent the day building a tree house with my brother and father. While relaxing after a day of pulling siding up with ropes, my father informed me that Juan Pablo Montoya had won the race. Way back on July 26th, 2012 my father and I were afforded the opportunity to sit in the back seat of a car that Mr. Montoya was driving… with one hand on the wheel… at top speed… while casually discussing the standard features of the car (AC and satellite radio)… around the very same track. It was awesome, and here are the pictures and a video to prove it.

Yard of bricks.

Comic Book Conventions – Photos From The Year So Far & A Write Up On The Indypendent Show!

I’ve been to a couple of comic book conventions, and plan to be at a couple more. I especially want to share a quick review of the show I was at this past weekend:

The Indypendent Show

The Indypendent show was honestly a bit of a surprise for me. Due to crazy schedules and having a spread out creative team on Henchmen, I quite frankly wasn’t sure if going to a show focussed on local talent and independent publishers would be very fruitful or honestly very fun.

I was very happy that I was completely wrong. I met some flat-out amazingly talented people at the show, both attending and exhibiting, and got to share the comic creative and business process with my son, who was able to sell some of his original artwork and in turn buy artwork from some of the most patient, passionate, and caring folks I’d met in a long time. He learned a lot, and I learned a lot.

The format and size of the show was perfect for a one day event  – nice and relaxed and time to actually talk to people! As a bonus, my son was able to get this awesome one page comic from Trae Dorn, Jackie Crofts, Lee Cherolis, G. Pike, and yours truly!

As you might imagine, super heroes are a thing at my house:

Here is a quick recap of the year so far in photos!
