Ringing in the new year

January 12, 2002

Here it is, albeit a couple weeks in, my first post of the new year. Work is steady and I'm proud to say that I've just completed or am about to complete a number of projects for various organizations and will be putting up some examples for you perusal as soon as I'm contractually able.

In other news, I just recently sent my entry out to the fine folks at Spectrum Science Fiction and Fantasy Illustration Contest, (The winners of which are then collected into the annual Spectrum publication by Underwood Press.) With any luck I'll once again be rubbing elbows with the industry's best as they look askance and wonder who the idiot rubbing their elbows is.

Also, to those who have been waiting so patiently for something new to look at, I will be making some additions to the various portfolios in the coming weeks as I've been drawing and painting like a mad man and the "needs to go on the web site" stack is getting a little out of hand... Which perfectly illustrates the irony of having a dynamic portfolio such as this. If I'm creating stuff to put on the web site then I'm usually strapped for time to do so. In the meantime here's a little sneak preview for those studious and or faithful enough to read through these posts.
