Happy New Year-

and a happy birthday to me, or rather this blog--Studio Space. It has been a year since I started this thing. It was my hope to reach a larger audience, meet other artist, share the process of my work and thoughts and find new clients and in that since this little blog has been a great success. I have only been tracking the traffic through this blog for the last four months or so but it has been surprising with just under 3000 visitors in that time from all parts of the world. The kind and number of clients has changed over the last year, where as, I had been trapped in a role playing and collectible card game ghetto, last year I was able to break out doing concept work and posters for movies, and video games, book covers became a primary source of work, I got the chance to do comic book pin ups and covers, and illustrations for a high end clothing company. And this year looks to even be bigger and better.

I know what your thinking--who cares, I came here to look at some art.

well then here are a couple of sneak previews-- the first is for the cover for reprinting of Lucy Snyder's anthology SPARKS AND SHADOWS to be published by CGP, the second is cover for Elder Sign Press. I do not know the name of the book, but the working title of the image is Zombie city. It was hard to convey zombies from such a distance. What I was going for was to have the mob thin out as it got closer and larger so that we can start to pick out the zombies - with groups attack individuals and cars, with the closest group looking up toward us, the viewer, as if they have seen us looking down on them--- the idea was to draw the viewer into the image....
