Greetings Loyal Airmen, as you are reading these words, the Air Chief and partner Rob Davis, are once again in Chicago setting up the Airship 27 Productions tables at the Windy City Pulp & Paper Con. This is one of the finest conventions put on today and we always have such a great time there visiting with old friends, and meeting new ones. Hopefully many of your Loyal Airmen will be on hand to join us as well.
Last Friday night, Valerie and the Air Chief had the sheer delight of seeing Jay Leno at the Lincoln Center here in Fort Collins. For an hour and a half he kept us and the rest of the packed house laughing uproariously. The King of Comedy easily showed why he is still the Master, and all the current hosts of late night shows are such pale imitations. He skewered Obama and Trump and the Clintons equally, took terrific punches at Political Correctness and pretty much left us all going home much happier than when we first entered the theater. Laughter is the best medicine and it is truly sad with what we are left with on today’s shows. Long Live the King!!
Meanwhile artist Cesar Feliciano continues to do up sketches of Jin & Tonik, the two heroes of our proposed graphic novel series which he hopes to begin drawing in mid-summer. To date the Air Chief has written the first two chapters in this mega action-adventure saga and they total 80 pages. Cesar tells us he has loose laid out the first 60. Wow. As ever we’ll keep you posted when the on-line funding campaign begins to make this project a reality.
Artist Gary Kato just turned in all 34 color illustrations for BARRY BASKERVILLE & THE BURIED TREASURE. This is the 6th entry in our children’s book series featuring Barry Baskerville, the boy who wants to grow up to be Sherlock Holmes. In this piece, the Air Chief thought he was greeting Art Director Rob Davis. With luck, we’ll have this book assembled and out shortly after we come home from the Windy City Pulp & Paper Con.
And that’s it for this go round, Loyal Airmen. Next week we’ll have the results of the Pulp Factory Awards winners and hopefully some fun photos of the con. Till then, have a good weekend and see you back here next Friday.
Ron – Over & Out!
