A New Home.

On the Web, anyway.

I am in the process of moving my portfolio over to Cargo (well, I've already done that but now I need to make everything look attractive and work well.)

It isn't very interesting yet, (see fig. 1) but you can visit it if you like.


Take a quick look around, if you will. It certainly won't take you too long, haha!

As for the rest of my time, I've been trying to balance between finding some steady source of income and working on a project with a friend of mine, known almost universally on the Internet as Spazzlings, or Spazzy, or some other variation of this, haha. She writes and I draw, so I proposed that we work on a comic together. We're still in the early stages, but we're both very excited!

The job search has eaten up most of my time and has been less successful but, there it is. The situation is not dire quite yet. So we're good.

Actually, a week ago I was in Alaska and took way too many photos (meaning: just the right amount) so I'll probably make a separate post about that. Photos on the way!

New Promo Stuff!

I used one of my paintings from my thesis project for a new business card and promotional postcard. I like making them functional postcards for some reason, haha. It's fun to design them!

Hello Again!

Well, here we are. Safe and sound on the other side of the Commencement Show and Graduation! Here in the Real World! Or that's what I hear, anyway.

Here is a photo of my wall at the Commencement show, taken by my stepfather, Steve.

I was really lucky, and received a great spot in the main illustration gallery, sharing a little alcove with the wonderful Kelly Miller, and Qing Zhuang.

You'll probably recognize the black and white pieces from my Sherlock Holmes series from a year ago, but the other three paintings are all from the spring of this year. On the shelf below the paintings are the mock ups for three books covers I illustrated and designed.

(You can see them larger in my portfolio.)

I was so pleased with how everything turned out! Then I was walking in Commencement, and suddenly it was all over. With everything taken down and packed away, I am back at home and trying to jumpstart some kind of freelance career. This will be an interesting first few years, haha.
