Pete Woods scored a point. 

Guy's in for five minutes. Matthew sets him up with a bit of grumbling about a peer, and BAM!, Pete scores harsh one. Everyone in the room is all "Damn, did he say that?" Parker calls "POINT!" and Pete's just all "hm."

The big story around here is no story at all: everyone is just sitting down, getting their work done. Matthew's been in more lately, intimidating everyone with his unbelievably detailed layouts. What Matthew calls a layout is a good deal more finished than most artists' covers. Unbelievable stuff. David Hahn's doing stellar work on Spider-man Loves Mary Jane. Jeff Parker's getting big accolades for Walk-In, the series he's writing for Virgin Comics. The work is inspired by Dave Stewart, of Eurythmics fame, who initiated the project, and says "It was amazing … Jeff just ploughed into writing an amazing script based on my drunken ramblings! He's a genius." More here. And Parker spoke about the comic here.

You know David Hahn's gotta love that quote.

On the commercial front, Mercury is going to be doing some design work for a Japanese themepark. I'm not sure how much we can put online, but when I can, hoo boy. The first meeting was great. I've never been bowed to before, which clearly indicates I haven't been living my life the way I ought to.

Just before the holiday, several of us pulled three straight all-nighters in a row to get a huge last-minute advertising job done. It was all fueled by caffine and professionalism, with storyboards flying out of here at top speed. Everyone seems recovered now, and after that maniacal flurry, the usual stresses of the holidays actually seemed relatively relaxing.
