I added some more quick cartoons to the "Dustyverse" section. While I obviously spend more time and effort on my paintings, I sometimes enjoy doing the little goofy cartoons more just because there's no pressure whatsoever on them. It's just essentially me acting like a kid, drawing whatever dumb idea comes to mind.
A few weeks ago at Crypticon 2010, Bonehand.com did an audio interview with me about my album cover work as part of their Bonebat podcast. The link to the interview is here, and my portion starts in at about the 42 minute mark, but please check out the rest of Bonehands podcasts as they really do cover a lot of great stuff.
By the way, this is officially my first audio interview, so feel free to laugh at me.
Due to the fact that I honestly just never check Myspace anymore, I set up a Facebook fan page. This way if you have an interest in my art and want to see updates as they happen, you can do so and it won't get neglected by yours truly.
As for current news, I finished up my cover for Oceano's next studio album, "Contagion". It should hopefully have a press release from Earache Records come out fairly soon and I'll be able to show it off. I'm also doing the interior layout artwork as well as the tracklisting artwork, so it's a fairly large project. Overall, I'm very proud of it so far and it's definitely the grossest thing I have ever painted, so hopefully Oceano fans will dig it.
After that, I have a few other things that should keep me busy as the year goes by and I'll update when I'm ready to talk about them! Thanks for visiting!
I just wanted to remind horror fans in in the Pacific Northwest that Crypticon is next weekend! I'll be setting up a table much like I do at the Emerald City Comicon every year, so if you live in the area come down to the convention and meet some guests (Kane Hodder is going to be there!) and buy some cool horror memorabilia! And if you want, stop by my table where I will be selling prints of my work.
If fine art prints are not your thing, though, don't let that stop you from dropping by if you are already at the convention. I'd still love to meet you!
See ya there!
One thing that I have heard from people who I meet at conventions is that they wished there was an easier way to order prints online. I'm not particularly that tech-savvy, so integrating a cart into my website isn't something that I am really able to do, but with the popularity of Etsy, I figured that was a decent compromise. It's got carts, it links up to my paypal, and it shoots me an email whenever someone orders something, so I think that should work out just fine!
So happily, you no longer have to trudge through writing me an email just to inquire about a print. If you see something you like...just order away!
Here's the link to the Etsy shop, and it will also remain permanently off to the right as well.
I hope this works out for everyone! I thank you for your support and advice.
