As far as comics I finally finished Bunny Blues / Leaves #6 in September.  I'm hoping to collect all 6 issues plus some of the Oh,Comics! shorts into a TPB in time for SPACE.  I had to re-scan and re-letter the first two issues because the resolution was too low.

Oh, Comics ! #22 "Time" is in the works.  I've completed the art for my 4 page Bunny Blues story, "Chronos Musca Domestica".
Also did a new linocut cover for a collection of  science fiction stories of mine involving robots called "Charge".
I 'm not sure what my next long term project will be but I'm thinking about starting the long form Vugz project.
