Well, it's that time of year and I'm going through my work from 2009, trying to decide what I might want to submit to Spectrum 17. I must say I'm a bit nervous, having been accepted last year (the first year I ever sent work in) I will be quite disappointed if this year if I don't get in....but the competition is crazy hard, featuring loads of, well, fantastic art, including the likes of Jon Foster, Greg Manchess, Paolo Rivera and Adam Hughes, so it's best not to get my hopes too high.
The above piece, alas, is not eligible, as work submitted must be from 2009 and this piece was done a couple years before. I just found it as I was going through my stuff and felt that it needed to be featured some where....The piece is inspired but not based on Tolkien story Luthien and Beren.... Now that I don't have a gallery type web site I really don't have a place to feature my older work. I really have to set aside some time and get a new site up. Even with my blog here, how many people want to slog through entry after entry to view my art. It's a bit tedious even to me. This will have to be one of my priorities in the new year.

How about Babes, Guns and Noir and a pet ocelot! The adventures of Honey West continue in the ongoing series of comic and pose books published by Moonstone Books. This is the second Honey West cover I've done for Moonstone. You can find the first cover here along with the rundown on the series and you can look for more in the coming months.

Ugh! one of my projects has been canceled-- just like that.... well not quite, first the publishers stopped answering my e-mails, then this morning I got notice to stop all work on the project and that they were sorry and blah, blah blah...and though I received a small advance, it in no way compensates me for the amount of work I did for the project. It is one of the down sides of working with small press publishers. Some are kind of fly by night operations. However, I work for a lot of little guys--small press publishers of books and magazine, comics games and small independent film and video game studios--and most are hardworking and creative operations putting out great products in an incredibly hard market, run by people who really love the genre. *Sigh* At any rate, thought you might enjoy seeing one of the images I did for them, 'cause, I guess they belong to me now.
