Lost: Drawn Claire Littleton

It's been a weird couple of days for me. weird in a good way. great way actually. Those of you who have been keeping tabs on my blog, know that I have been crazy busy right now. With work finishing up, helping my gf move and graduate, moving myself, freelance work pouring in, and juggling personal projects at home, it's not an easy task.
I ran myself down. I blame E3 and shake my fist at the germ warfare hidden deep within the convention center. But I digress, Maybe I've just been far too busy for my own good. I got sick. Somewhere along the lines I caught a bad strain of the Black Plague. I'll spare you the details of Phlegmsville USA kids! We got bigger fish to fry.
I had to skip out on work for the past 2 days and rest and do what most other peeps do when they don't have insurance. Go to yr friendly neighborhood pharmacist and ask them what you should take to get better over the counter. it's cheaper than a doctor's visit and sometime's the pharmacist knows more about what you are putting inside you than the doctor. Naturally, I feel like sh*t when I miss work. But happiness that day, as I was coughing and hacking up lung meat, came to me in the form of an email waiting for me in my nerdy AOL inbox. My pal Steve did the kind gesture of alerting me to the fact that My Lost: Drawn caricatures were made the subject of a "social" Animation News Podcast on Toonfuse dot com. Totally making my day, and thus prompting me to get my ass in gear and give you: Claire "Venus" Littleton.

For the record, I take pride in the fact that I am Toonfuse's first highest rated post. 16 points thus far!

As for the podcast dear reader, click on Podcast in the upper right hand corner under the Toonfuse logo. I am the first story on episode 4. If that doesn't work, make sure to check ITunes's Podcast directory, it should be available to download, and free to boot!

the funniest bit is where they mispronounce my name.
"Jon, is it pronounced Jon? what is that German?"
(Special thanx shout out goes out to Eleanor and Victoria for helping me color that shell special cool like. it's appreciated girls.)
