Recently I commission Andrew Tunney, a super-talented friend of the super-talented KT to draw something for me. He had a choice between Shiro and Valentine.

He debated doing Val for a while, as both of us realized he'd do a very cool image.

He chose Shiro, based on the fact that NO ONE has been able to successfully draw Shiro, and Andy likes a challenge.

In my mailbox this morning was a sketch. It's one of the sweetest things I've ever seen. He nailed the character. Bang on perfect personality. Spooky, really, considering he's not read any of the text.

Seeing it cemented the character in my mind, too. I looked at it and went "yes, that's Shiro."

Bloody amazing.

I think I saw the guy who plays the VP/Crazy Doctor Balthar on Battlestar Galatica in the grocery store Saturday evening. Of course, I have no idea if that's who it really was, but he looked totally familiar and after watching the last couple eps of season 2 in preparation for the new season which started this weekend, I realized why.

See, the weird thing about LA is if you think someone looks like somebody/familiar, it really could be that person.
