I remember that halfway through the book I wanted to draw the invisible friend. I scribbled all sorts of pictures. Until I found myself drawing my mother over and over.

Home Message Boards Bendis: November 26-30, 2003

Re: Who was Tony Solomun
Nov 26, 2003 12:50 am

He is real. Bendis and I each met Tony when we were signing in Australia. I hadn't read many of his posts on this board, but he did post on my Kabuki messageboard and I read those. His posts on my board were pretty enthusiastic and sometimes in copius amounts, but nothing rude, controversial or problematic. They were always civil and usually questions about the work.

When I met him, he seemed like a nice and very respectful kid. Probably 17 or 18. And it seemed like he was very involved with his artwork. I remember him showing me a very touching and moving comic story that he wrote and drew about his real life situation of being abandoned as a child. As a baby he was left in a basket. Fortunately a family found him and raised them as thier own, but it seemed like he had some issues about it that he was working out through his artwork and his autobiographical comicbook stories. Not knowing where he came from and that sort of thing.

I related to his work and appreciated his dedication and boldness in laying all his personal stuff on the line in a story like that. He was very genuine and open.

That is my limited first hand experience with him. I hope he is doing ok. I haven't seen his posts on my board for a while.

He is a lovely fellow. And I like his name. The feminine version of it would have two L's.

The one L version is very masculine!

I know this because once we were in paris, and his girlfriend commented that he had not shaved for a few days, because he ran out of shaving cream. So I gave him my can of Edge. He came back to the hotel resturant happy with his fresh shave and said he liked this Edge cream as he gave it back to me. I was leaving France the next day, so I told him to just keep it for the rest of his travels. He joked that I should sign it, so I drew a little Akemi face on the top and signed it to him. Only I spelled it with two L's by accident. And he thought I was goofing on him, so I changed it to one big L with my sharpie.

We had a good time in France traveling to all the museaums with our girlfriends and singing in the streets. Then I took copies of all his artwork back with me and showed them to Bendis and Quesada!

The funny thing is I orginally had him in mind to draw this current Echo story. In the developement of it he did some very cool Echo and Wolverine paintings. Then the Secret project came up and we figured he'd get a bigger bang out of that.

I've seen it so far, and it looks fantastic.
Go Gab!

My 2 cents,

It is definietely NOT written by Bendis. He penciled and I inked this 3 or 4 issue series [called Chtulhu] way back in 1993. Jones did the cover and the other two guys on the credits supposedly wrote it together.

Hey silly,
I don't even drink. Never been drunk in my life. I have natural social lubrication. See? No bad friction. It doesn't hurt at all. It just feels good.

All the chemicals I need are already a part of my natural metabolic constitiution. I just manipulate them via food or sleep or excercise to get the right mix. Mixing. There. That feels lovely.
I love everything.
Happy to you and all. I'm thankful.
You my friend. My English getting better.
