My web “presence” has been lacking as of late, but I’ll be back on it as of now. I’ve got a few things in the pipeline right now. I completed an art piece for the Minneapolis institute of Arts - Foot in the Door. Once every ten years, any artist from the Minnesota area can submit a 12x12 inch work of art.
If you are in the Minneapolis area this Thursday the 18th, I’d suggest you check it out. I had a lot of fun making a new piece for the show; it’s a multi-layered illustration. Sort of like when animation cells are stacked to create depth of field. I’ll have photos of it when I go to the show, so you all will know what the hell I’m talking about.
Also I’m ACTUALLY making a comic with my friend Josh, which he’ll be writing it. It’s a very daunting project. I have never done a comic over four pages (sad I know) and I’ve had a lot of false starts in my day. I’ve only been doing character sketches and a few thumbnail layouts for now. It’s a do or die mentality for me with this comic. I need to do this to prove to myself I can do a long form comic, I’m not getting any younger.
And on the professional side of my life. The project I’ve been working on the last year has been killed. It was a bummer, but it hasn’t affected me too badly. Now it’s literally back to the drawing board. Though I hate to admit the new concepts I’ve been drawing really drains me creatively outside of work. When I get home I just want to zone out and play the PS3. I shouldn’t complain, I do get paid for it… I wish I could show you all the drawings. But my company disclosure contract won’t allow it.
Whew… less typing… more drawings!
