onward and upward

here i am again, trying to pull myself back into some sort of creative routine.  how does one balance the full time job, painting, comic books, and various other projects that invariably come one’s way while still managing to keep some semblance of a social life?  precariously yet gleefully.

glad to say jen and i will be getting away to san francisco for a few days next week.

for now, it is time to work work work once again.

just finished a series of concept sketches and designs for miss tora brava‘s upcoming, incredibly ambitious, multi-layered project.  here’s a taste:


i managed to get this and a number of other situational/character designs finished in less than three days.  good to know i can still crank these things out when the need arises.

jason has been soldiering on with the outlines for the 13 presentation we’ll be making to dark horse some time later this summer.  i’m getting back to the inking. here’s a photo of the latest completed page.  keep in mind it’s taken on my phone and a bit underwhelming because of this.

possessed and proud

more art on its way.


twin peaks art show, etc

so long since my last entry, i barely remember how to type.  with my father preparing to move in to an assisted living facility and my life about to return to some semblance of “normalcy”, i have a feeling that i’ll be back at this a bit more regularly.

this friday, i will be participating in a group show called “The Black Dog Runs at Night” to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the much beloved Twin Peaks television series.  i’ll have a painting up and will be selling original ink and brush illustrations of various characters from the series at the event including cooper, truman, the arm, the giant, the log lady, and more.  prints of said pieces will be available in my store as of friday, april 2nd.

articles about the art show  here and here.  check it out and come down! around twenty artists are participating.

location : Piranha Betty’s Art Market- 2472 Frankford Avenue, Philadelphia
