more dredged from the archives

Work has been furious(ly busy) as of late and there lies, in the foreseeable future, a pause around July. However, I am resolved to be committed to frequenter posting, along the lines of at least once a weekday.

So! More from the archives:

Behold, a drawing completed some time around late college.
I'm going to have a printed sketchbook available around July. This idea will likely make it in, in some form or another. I read a quote one time that I'd butcher to try and re-quote here, so I'll paraphrase/make it up: You have really only about 2 or 3 good ideas in your life and you spent the rest of your life trying to communicate those 2 or 3 ideas.

Not that this drawing exactly is one of those "2 or 3" but it's a motif of something that always manages to crop up. What does it mean? Heck who knows, I just like it and am drawn to draw it over and over.

Am I curious what do people really want to see on this blog? It's going on 3 years now (2 years and 8 months) and I don't think I've ever asked that. So, there's the question-- what are you interested in seeing / reading? Thanks very much.

As always,

I, for one, enjoy seeing examples of your work and hearing about your creative process.

Dido Loren.

I also enjoy reading about what inspires you. Artists, weather, books, movies, crackerjacks, etc.

Peace. - Caleb

hi, I stumbled upon your blog sometime last year and have visited ever since. I love reading about your creative process and seeing your work plus the stories and sound effects that accompany.

I concur... creative process is always interesting to read about-how did that thing get made?
Also, if you listen to music while illustrating, what do you listen to? or at least, what are you currently into? I've seen "Currently in the CD player/iPod: artist/song"

well, for the last two-and-a-half years or so, i've kept up on your blog almost as faithfully as you've kept posting. keep doing what you're doing i'd say. i love it. if i could ask anything, however, i may like to see a demonstration video of your photoshop illustrative processes (like some of the ones justin made for his delightful brushes) on light night rains or the photoshop experiment. thanks!
