Heck yeah! I've got some 3D computer animation of the Lion I created
using SoftImage last summer. On the off chance that you don't have a
copy (Stephen or anyone else) and you think you might have a use for it,
let me know and I'll send you a (VHS) copy. It's pretty short (about 20
seconds) but it moves and it's flashy, and it could be used to dress up
a tv feature on the CoV. Stephen, if you don't have a copy, I can just
give you one next Saturday.

As the Seattlites know, I'm making steady progress on the first issue of
the C comic book. (working title is "C: The Seduction" I'd be more than
happy to set the third issue IN the Church of the Virus if someone were
to acutally build a 3D model of the place.

Lots of good stone lions in Seattle.

FREE? Can I get a retroactive discount on my CoV subscription?

On the topic of intellectual property, anybody who wants to use an image
of the Lion on their web-page or in some other context is welcome to do
so. No attribution or link to is necessary (although I
certainly wouldn't spit in the face of anyone who brought the page a few
more hits). I recommend the animated version or the "support smut"

Take care, all. -KMO
