Updates

I officially lost 15 pounds over the summer - from 180 to 165. Altered my diet and exercise routine. Now it's back to attempting to put on mass.

Fall quarter has started and in addition to my administrative duties, I'm teaching one class. I'll be inking that previously posted Phantom work at night and on weekends...which is when I typically draw.

I don't have a lot of time for personal projects that I'd like to develop and pitch. So what I've done is take 8 sketchbooks and label them for each project I'd like to develop. Everyday when I leave work I'll grab a different sketchbook and work as I ride the train home and then back to work in the morning. This gives me about 40 min. total once every eight days to work on these projects. I just started doing this, tomorrow will be day 8 and represent the first full cycle. I think it's been pretty useful so far, I feel like I'm making progress on each of the projects which is a good feeling. I'll try and post as more work gets accomplished.

Website development is at a stand-still for now. Formatting the content is what's slowing me down. I need an intern.

...or a government bail out of a bazillion dollars...that would be good too.

Preview 2 - Phantom



Here are some preview pencils for a special Phantom project from Moonstone. I don't think that I can say anything more than that...I'm not sure if they've announced it yet.

Yes, the woman in the third image will get hair.

These are originally penciled with a non-photo blue pencil and will be inked by me. That's why these are more loose than the pencils for the Worlds of Dungeons and Dragons book which will be a scanned pencil book - no inks involved.

Preview 1 - Worlds of Dungeons and Dragons #8













Here are some panels from the upcoming Worlds of Dungeons and Dragons #8 from DDP. I don't know the release date, so if you're interested, I recommend checking out their website.

Other news!

Finished World's of Dungeons and Dragons #8 for DDP and am now on to a Phantom project for Moonstone. Talking with DDP about another gig after that. whew!

Got a few rooms in the house painted this past week, ran off to Chattanooga with the family for a day and a half last week as well.

No new progress on personal projects and website progress is moving slowly along.

Baby on the way!

Yes, Quinn baby #2 is brewing as we speak! About 13 weeks along at this point with a March 17th due date. Woo-hoo!
Mom is doing fine so far, the real question is how will (soon to be) big sister Alison deal with the new arrival? We'll see!
