And now for something completly different (new blog)

Smile
Sometime ago I got bitten with the photography bug. Since then its been a great journey of learning the craft and exploring new motives.

This means that I've been visiting places I never new existed, meeting new people that share the same passion about photography and learning new things like I haven't done in a long time. This last year was indeed a strange, but interesting year. On top of this I had the good fortune of having an awesome wife that, not only encourages me to do the things I love (be it read comics or make photographs), likes to accompany me and share in the fun.

Portuguese retailers give a big thank you to Amazon.co.uk.

Amazon
I get most my books on-line. Simpy because it ends up being a lot cheaper. In 2004 when I started buying on-line the ratio was 3 books on-line for the same price as 2 in store. Now a days I believe the difference is not as big.

When I say on-line I mean Amazon. Amazon has a great service. They have a generous offering of titles, awesome prices, fast delivery and the best on-line ordering system out there. I have nothing but good things to say about their service.

Aspen Comics Presents Lola XOXO On April 9th

Cover
Aspen Comics is thrilled to present its first new property of 2014 on April 9th, the action-adventure series Lola XOXO, created, written and illustrated by Siya Oum (Charismagic, Executive Assistant: Iris). The highly anticipated upcoming six-issue series unfolds in a dystopian western tale following young firebrand character Lola, who has been raised under the protection of a band of traveling merchants.

Despite potential dangers in the “Wasteland,” Lola decides to perilously traverse what’s left of the United States in a desperate—and deadly—search for her parents. Oum discusses her enthusiasm for the project:
"It has always been a dream of mine to have my own series. It hasn't quite hit me. I can't imagine how I'll feel when I get the first printed issue in my hands. I feel like everything I've ever experienced, everyone I've ever cared for has a hand in inspiring the creation of this Lola XOXO. I couldn't have asked for a better publisher and a better group of friends to guide me through the process. I am forever grateful."
