Happy Lunar New Year! Gong Hay Fat Choy!

The Lunar New Year Check List

Are you all ready for the new year? Well, I finally put away the xmas tree and…that’s about as much as I’ve done to prepare. So, don’t feel bad because all that matters is that you not swear; don’t sweep/clean; and avoid the salon – just greet everyone with a happy new year message…

so 恭喜發財! 新年快樂! 心想事成!

Never Give Up: Jim Lee co-publisher of DC Comics

We all started from somewhere but we rarely get to see the very beginnings.

Jim Lee, artist, writer,  editor, and co-publisher of DC Comics gives us a peek into how it started — and just how persistent he was.

Now I feel like an absolute lazy bum with only two rejection letters under my belt. Only two because I stopped hounding publishers…not that two even constitutes any hounding whatsoever — more like a ‘hello and ‘bye.’

Anyhow, check out the rest of the letters Jim Lee dug up on his Instagram as well as his first finished piece for Marvel.

Quite inspiring.
