Where'd January Go
Today is a fine day to take a quick break to post what I have been working on the last few months. The large majority of the work I have been producing lately is gaming: FFG Cthulhu card game, the new WOTC D&D Monster Manual, and the upcoming FFG A Game of Thrones expansion, unfortunately all of which can’t be posted until published so I’ll have to get that up later in the year.
I got my Spectrum entries together just in time, so now begins the long waiting and hoping period of the year. The work and talent level in the books is quantitatively better with each passing year and I am really looking forward to the next issue regardless if I make the cut.
In comics news my future projects in the works are another Kolchak: the Night Stalker cover with Moonstone as well as a collaborative project with other local Cincinnati illustrators. The group comic is called 12 way with Cheese and I’ll be submitting a small 8 page interior story about the rise and fall of Zombie Marge. For more info on the project check here as well as a bounty of other great illustrators:
In other artiste related new I tried a Dr. Sketchy for the first time a few weeks ago and I dug the laid back vibe and the model was actually pretty good. I had a deadline so I just worked on a project while other friends drew from the model but it was nice to be socially creating some work away from the studio. Teaching at NKU has begun and thus far my class is hardworking and for the most part self-motivated. I will also be helping judge the art of illustration show at CCAD at the end of the month, which should be surreally nostalgia since good ole Zack created the show the year we attended back in 98. It’s good to see the tradition continuing.
I hate reading blogs without pretty pictures so in an attempt to post something, here is some unfinished in progress stuff that I am currently plugging away at.
