Hey Dudes,

Haven't been updating here as much because I've been busy hustling to get The Hospital Suite done so it can come out at SPX this September.  I'm getting a lot of work done, but there's a lot of work to do!

Meanwhile, I am posting updates etc regularly at my Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts (see links at top right).

In working on the Hospital Suite I pulled out an old notebook from 1997-1998 for reference.  Thought I'd share some snapshots of sketches and stuff from there.

Talk soon!
John P.
