This just in from Jim Korkis:

[Got to spend a little time with artist Ruben Procopio last Friday. He was in town to attend the FX convention at the Orlando Convention Center (and meet with some friends from Disney Feature Animation who stayed in Florida). Interestingly, he was not selling any Disney related artwork but his own limited edition booklet "The Phantom Chronicles: Artist's Index". You can find more information at The sketchbook features some rough concept art for the artwork Ruben did for "The Phantom Chronicles book" published by Moonstone Books and features Lee Falk's purple suited avenger of justice. Besides his work for Disney, Ruben is a huge fan of the Phantom and the Green Hornet. Ruben was kind enough to draw a little sketch in my copy of a headshot of the Phantom...wearing Mickey Mouse ears and signed it "from the Ghost Who Walks at Disneyworld!". Artist sketchbooks have become very popular in the last few years and several Disney artists have picked up some spare change at various conventions by selling them.]
