Cerebus film survives worst fire in California history

Our home is partially destroyed, but luckily we're alive - and the multiple hard drives with Cerebus film material made it as well. WHEW.
Though some material is backed up on the cloud (thanks to George Gatsis for providing use of his cloud) a lot isn't. In fact so much I'm not sure the film would have survived had the hard drives been lost.
This has been the least productive 5 weeks in the long history of making this film as we've been hotel hopping with our 3 kitties, but there is light at the end of the tunnel, things are settling - and at the end of next week we should be moving into our new place back in LA.
Our little excursion to Santa Rosa happened 3 years ago for no other reason that this is where Charles Schulz worked on "Peanuts". It was an incredibly tranquil time that came to a nightmarish end. And hopefully maybe just a little bit of Schulz' spirit infused the film - though I know Dave has his own criticism of the strip...anyway, it's somewhat fitting to be leaving as Charles Schulz' home is now burnt down.

Below are a couple of images from the current facebook challenge making the rounds "7 black and white images featuring no humans, no animals and no explanation". I was nominated by Matt Dow right prior to the fire - and as of yesterday Matt is now running the Cerebus HQ blog "A moment of Cerebus". Big congrats!!!
