The Future Is Now, Forested Tower “La Tour des Cedres” Coming Soon to Switzerland

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Saw this over at today, the Swiss are building a crazy mixed residential and retail building that will also be a vertical forest too. When one pictures a future’esque world in a sci-fi story, one might picture the design for this 26-story structure called, La Tour des Cedres (or Cedar Trees Tower). Set to begin construction in 2017 — the building will be found in Lausanne, Switzerland — “will also incorporate an array of sustainable energy technologies, including a rainwater collection system, solar panels and ground source heat pumps.” This really looks amazing and it something I would expect no less from the Swiss in design. I do hope it does become a reality and is the inspiration and direction for much more to come.

A Proud and Encouraging Moment, A Project 20 Years In The Making Becoming A Reality, The Resistants

Saturday, September 19th, 2015

Today in the mail I received some copies of a book that I am working on, The Resistants. This has been a project that I have been working on with a friend of mine for 20 years now. Well we started the project 20 years ago, then things changed course for us and it went to the back burner. Now this year it is set to return and I couldn’t be happier.

The preview copies I received today make me proud to be involved in this project still. The books are more of a “prototype” than a finish copy, we still have coloring to do (what you see for the cover colors are placeholders) and some final tweaks here and there, but it is so very close to becoming a finish product. The preview books were done because my co-creator and publisher of the book, Kyle Kaminski, is attending conventions these last few weeks of the con season and he wanted something in hand he could talk to other creators with.

We will soon be finalizing the first issue of The Resistants series and heading off to the printer, I will be sure to let everyone know about that. I’m excited for you all to see this come to life finally and get into your hands.
