This eBay Seller Never Learns

An eBay seller that I posted about on my Dusty Scrolls blog a few months ago,whom was selling Xena fan art, is back at it again! This time selling this piece I did from Spartacus. So if you're visiting my blog, please don't purchase this or any other fan art from this seller. My art is free for godsakes! He's totally ripping people off! Read my art policies here -Thanks, Klipp

Andy Whitfield's Cancer Has Returned

Sad news readers. Andy's cancer has returned and he won't be in the second season of Spartacus. If a thought were a prayer then he'd have thousands of people praying for him. All the best to him and his family. Here is the press release:

Andy Whitfield, star of Starz's "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," has been advised by his doctors to immediately resume aggressive treatment for a recurrence of cancer, as a result of which he will not be returning for the series' second season, which was tentatively set to air in September 2011

"It’s with a deep sense of disappointment that I must step aside from such an exceptional project as Spartacus and all the wonderful people involved. It seems that it is time for myself and my family to embark on another extraordinary journey. Thank you sincerely for the support so far,” said Whitfield.

“Our hearts and prayers are with Andy and his family during this difficult time,” said Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht. “Andy is not only an incredible actor whose portrayal of Spartacus made an indelible impression on Starz audiences, he is also an amazing human being whose courage, strength, and grace in the face of adversity have inspired all of us.”

No decisions have yet been made about the future of the series. “Right now, we just want to extend our concern and support to Andy and his family,” said Carmi Zlotnik, Managing Director, Starz Media. “We will address our programming plans at some later date.”

Starz still plans to air the prequel to Spartacus: Blood and Sand in January 2011. Entitled Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, it focuses on the House of Batiatus before Spartacus arrives in Capua and stars returning cast members John Hannah, Lucy Lawless, Peter Mensah and Manu Bennett, along with newcomer Dustin Clare.
