I seriously have my doubts that anyone stops in here anymore. I have a tendency to vanish for a while with this blog, and then once I come back and start posting again, I just turn around and dissapear once more. Sorry, that's just how it goes sometimes.
I have been pretty busy with my full time job, spending some time working with the fine folks at the Register Guard newspaper in Eugene, Oregon. I will be making about 3 more trips out there between now and the end of October. I have also just returned from a much needed vacation with my family to our timeshare in Park City. Had a great time there, and really enjoyed just relaxing and spending time with my awesome kids and my sweet wife. I really didn't want to come back when the week was over.
In art related news, I have been pretty dilligent about drawing every day. I got a great little sketch book back in June from my parents for my birthday, and I have discovered that I need to call it a "drawing" book rather than a sketch book, because I spend way too much time pouring over my drawings and making them clean and perfect. Once again, that's just how it goes with me. I am very much a perfectionist with my art, and I really need to just take time to do loose sketches and not make every thing I put in the book a work of art. Hopefully I will get some scans of the latest stuff on here soon. I am also going to be taking a shot at more special effects monster work soon, teaming up with my good friend Emil DeGrey to do some life casts, so I can start scultping my first latex mask. Dunno if time will permit me to have it ready before Halloween this year, but I will see how it goes. This will be my first attempt at anything like this, so it will surely be a challenge, but I am looking forward to it!
I recently finished a drawing that I am hoping to make available as a print soon. Now that the manual art is drawn, I have scanned it and am currently cleaning it up in Photoshop. Once it is finished I will post information about it here!
As always, thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned for more!!
