Past revamping...

So I used to create a lot of surrealistic cartoons... I've looked back on them and don't think they are very strong anymore... so I thought for practice I'd recreate them now... here's one I'm starting on... first is the old:

And here is the start of the newer piece....

I think these'll be fun to print on canvas...

alrighty it's my birthday so I got to get prepped to go out tonight in the blizzard! I'm thinking initial drinks at Puck Fair and then maybe over to Williamsburg.... call me if you know me and want to meet out.

Hopefully I'll be able to post a bit more info about the cartoon project I'm working on... everything is going awesome!

Long Overdue...

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile, things have been a bit hectic, amazing but hectic. So the weekend I was away I got myself a tattoo... a botanical drawing of a thistle:
I'm loving it... first one so I decided to go big... might as well do it right if you're going to do it at all. It's not completely finished, supposed to have cross sections of the flower, stem, pistol, etc... a study of the flower, but am trying to figure out how I want those pieces laid out first.

The second bit of news is... well I'm not sure how much to say as it's in the beginning stages... but I'm super excited about it... and it's the reason I've not had much time to update as I've been working on it instead in my free time. I guess I'll just say I've been approached to work on a cartoon... character designs, backgrounds and settings... the works. So that's where my time has been... I'm not sure I can, and I don't expect I will be able to say too much more on here or show you the work unfortunately but I'll see if I can't whet your whistles some time down the line. Granted if everything works out. Wish me luck!

I think because of this, I'll most likely be updating this blog a little less frequently then I had initially started out doing... My goal is at least once a week and I think that should be doable. Maybe twice but it might move to One post showing my art and the other about something I find Inspirational or Informative.

I want to keep this site going as it's partially the reason I got approached for the Cartoon Gig. That and having a lot of my work on my iPhone. I can't stress this enough... if you have a phone with picture capabilities put your work on there! You never know who you are going to meet and having a mobile portfolio will ensure you make the most out of the situation.

Alrighty I'll see if I can't get an art piece up on here in the next day or two. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
