i’m so sorry i’ve neglected you, blog.  will you forgive me?  i’ll give you chocolate…

happy new year!

just finished work on a good chunk of concept and final art for a blogsite my wife and i are playing with.  once it’s ready for public consumption, i will post links and more information.

i am halfway through my sketchbook for the sketchbook project and will be cramming all this week and next to get it postmarked by the 15th.  i started off using pencil and painting ink over it, but have since abandoned the pencil and am attacking it directly with ink. the subject i chose is “coffee and cigarettes”.  throughout the sketchbook, we follow a man and a woman as they embark on a relationship with one another-smoking many cigarettes and drinking tons of coffee.  all is glamor until he wakes up with chest pains one day and the sketchbook takes a tragic turn.  i’ll post more pics and information later.

still have to finish corrections on my comic work to send off to darkhorse and get my good friend and writing partner, jason ridings, to finish re-writing the first five pages of thirteen to send off to image.

many other projects and paintings still in the pipes.  toying with the idea of creating an actual monthly schedule to get them done this year.  ha ha.

and just for fun, here is the art of don kenn.  you should take a look.
