Where the Land meets the Sea and the Sky

Was down at the shore last weekend, was nice to get away for a bit. Finally had opportunity to make use of the watercolor kit that I put together and got some nice drawings/paintings done. Will get those scanned up tonight to show you guys.

In other news, been reading "Kushiel's Dart". Great book and need to go borrow the next one in the series from the library once I finish this one. Nice to find a new series to read.

Got some plans to head out to the Tuxedo Renfaire weekend after next. Going to bring a sketchbook or camera and keep an eye out for inspiration for illustrations.

Zine Sketches

Working on the thumbnails for the Zine I mentioned last time. Need a few more but pleased with how these are turning out so far. First time in too long I've really had fun drawing things because I wanted to as opposed to being assigned them for a class or the like.

"The theme is creepy or eerie things. It can be subtle horror, it can be fantastical, it can be comically disturbing. Take your pick!"

Hope you all enjoy the sneak peak into my head.

Peanuts, Cahews, Macadamias, Pecans

It's been a mixed bag of nuts this week folks;

-My grandfather had a small fall that wasn't considered a big problem, which of course developed into a serious issue. He's doing better, but he's got a ways to go before he's back to where he was.

-Still no word yet on the freelance job, should hear something one way or another in the next day or so. I'll have to wait and see.

-The tattoo design commission I was working on is going well, the client is rather pleased with how it's turned out. Just need to do some tweaking and cleaning up and that'll be done. It's still weird to me that there are people who want my art and designs inked into their skin.

-I wasn't able to grab any pictures at the Renfaire last Sunday. I did however push myself outside of my comfort zone and met/chatted with some new people; a few of which ever so happened to be attractive young ladies in tight-fitted bodices and corsetry. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it ;)

-There's a juried competition that Canson is running that I'm going to submit a piece to at the end of the month. Will have to get to work on that. Will post pictures as I go.

-A friend of mine is putting together a copy-store zine that I'm gonna get some illustrations into, might submit two pieces to it if I can, will depend on how many people are actually participating. Going to have to get a jump on that, thumbnails are due by the tenth.

That's all for now, I shall now go scamper off to forage for sustenance.
