The finished idea. I started painting around 6 PM Sunday evening and somewhere along the way noticed that the sun was rising on a new Monday. I left work at 9 AM and slept til around 3 PM when I heard the cat throwing up. 15 hours in one stretch. Working, not the cat throwing up.
I stopped for once or twice to drink some Texas Pete (my secret weapon) and kept going.

I think he looks more surprised. And more dead.

The philistines were clean shaven? Oh well. Expect updates all night.
I know there's sea farin' adventure in the book, whether it's "under the sea" is debatable, but oh well.
The book's coming out in October 2006, and the publisher has put it up on Amazon.com, so I figured it'd be fine to show it here. Here are links to my posts for when the first two books, Landon Snow and the Auctor's Riddle and Landon Snow and the Shadows of Malus Quidam, came out.
Each book has a full color painting on the cover and pencil illustrated chapter openers.
I'm in the middle of reading the second book right now (Landon Snow and the Shadows of Malus Quidam) and find it to be terrifying. The shadows that Landon and his sister Holly encounter really do feel menacing. See, I don't get the full text when I illustrate the book, just descriptions, so to finally read it is fun.
For Robo I & II as well as some robot appropriate music, click here.
Here's a robot titled Robo III that I posted not too long ago, and since I don't have anything new and this is a robot and I'm here and you're here and we're all here, I thought, oh fine. Why don't I just. So I did.
Oh and here's another everybody's seen I'm sure. But it's a robot so what are you going to do?
Every once in a while, I'll check and see what my junk mail filter has blocked. Most of it's silly and inconsequential things but sometimes it's pretty funny. Take, for example, the tragic story of poor Haja. And her 15 Million Dollars. And to think she'd even give me 10%.
Here's a pretty thing; it's not finished, but I like it and so I put it here.
The last week or so has been full of my white chair, spagetti, an old card table, a lot of 4 AMs, a borrowed laptop, and the pounding out the manuscript for the yet untitled story of this boy and this dragon and this owner of the factory.
