In other words, MARATHON, the book I've been working on with writer Boaz Yakin for First Second, is now done! The experience of doing this book was difficult and exhilarating. When I first began work on it, I very much felt that my skills were not up to the task and it took a long time before I settled into it. It wasn't long after that that I encountered health problems associated with stress and the ergonomics of my workstation. Months of physical therapy kept me in the race until I was able to get back into it at full speed. I can now look back on the project as a whole and say that it's easily my best work to date and look forward to next year's release with a great deal of optimism. Thanks for being there throughout the process. I'll continue to post news and images from the book leading up to its release in June 2012.
