A love letter to all the great sci-fi shows Dave Beaty (artist) and I (writer) grew up watching. It has since morphed into something wholly unique and fun, and we’re just getting warmed up on it. Read it for free by hitting the link above.

Is this thing on…?

Studio Fugazi is the brainworm of Al Sparrow. That’d be me. It started out as a front for my independent design consulting work, and has since morphed into an outlet and imprint for my indie comic work (aka Funnybooks). Soon it’ll be focused on my podcast and video work.

I’ve been at this a while. 25 years or more. Generally I enjoy helping people find solutions to problems they weren’t aware they had, or found out about after it was too late. I’ve managed to be gainfully employed for most of my life, which is a blessing I never like to take for granted.

I’ve worked for some amazing companies, most of which did not outlast me (no fault of my own, I assure you), and through them managed to help produce quality work for management icons like Peter Drucker, and organizations like the Project Management Institute.
