yeah, this thing hasn't been daily for quite a long time, and probably won't be again.  but until i get a new blog/site, i'm gonna drop off some new stuff i'm working on here.  and who knows, maybe it will get on a semi-daily schedule. 

here's a panel from a new book i'm working on, and some process art as well.

more sketching with the Tachikawa School-G fountain pen over blue line pencil.

just got a new scanner, so the Daily Dose can live again.

this is an ink test using a Tachikawa "School-G" fine tip fountain pen (from Jetpens.com).  it's pretty amazing, so far.

preliminary astronaut design for an illustration and short story i'm cooking up.  i wanted to go back to that 1950's sci fi look, but to maybe find a slightly different angle than  the obvious choices: wally wood, alex raymond, al williamson, etc.    i soaked up some of Alex Schomburg's sci fi pulp magazine covers and Bernard Krigstein's designs in "Derelict Ship," with some hefty doses of the Disney Tomorrowland specials from the mid-late '50's

i've been chipping away at the Goat illustration for HEAD MEDICINE for a while now.  all of the line art for the figures is done, soon to be all digitally assembled and colored up.

Goat is the winner of HEAD MED's Album of the Year ("World Music"), Song of the Year ("Goatman"), and Best New Artist.  next week i will be publishing the final artwork on HEADMEDICINE.blogspot.com along with a great Q&A with the band.
