Hi all. It's been awhile since I've posted. IMAX has been kicking my butt. Same-old, same-old, understaffed, over worked. Seems to be the standard business model these days. Whatever...that's not the reason for the post.

Even with what little free time I've had, I've managed to get more and more involved in my original comic art hobby, and have expanded from hobby to business. I believe I hit you guys up for a name awhile back, and I decided to settle on "Wednesday's Heroes". I've bought the domain name, and such, but have yet to have time to build the site. In the meantime, I have managed to sign an artist, and set up a gallery of his work on another site. Take a look! His name is Eric W. Meador. He's quite a talent.

Since you guys are like a second family, I figured I'd share the fun news!

Hey, I'm glad to see something's happening with that. Eric certainly does seem to have talent. Make sure you keep updating us as it progresses.

Good luck in the business, Craig! Have you incorporated or set up as an LLC?

Good to hear from you again, especially when you bring such exciting news! Eric's work is really beautiful. I like how there's other things up for view besides just heroes, as well. The works with the dogs were especially nice.

Good luck with the venture!

Thanks guys!

re: LLC, etc...I spoke with my accountant and he suggested at this point it wouldn't really be necessary. We'll look into it again as things progress. Right now it's a seriously small-time venture. (Fun though!)

So if I sued you and won, you could lose you home, your TV, and your Axioms?

Not that I'd ever do such a thing.

You'd have to have a legit reason to sue me to take all my goodies. With the tiny amount of business we're doing, the most you could hope for is to win a couple of cans of tennis balls at most.

Don't underestimate emotional distress.

Yeah Craig, but with your mention of tennis you should keep in mind that besides taking your TV and Axioms he might grab your tennis racket and your balls!
