After helping move the company I work for, then move my girlfriend I'm now getting set to move myself. I really do feel like burro in the drawing above... I do hope to ink and color this drawing someday but for now, this will have to do.

In 4 weeks I'll start a 6-week Sabbatical. An effort on my part to immerse myself in illustration, art and silkscreening without the Steady 40ty getting in the way. A couple years ago I started having periodical "Meetings With Self". This served as a check-in on what I've been trying to get done and have gotten done, what I want to do and setting some realistic milepost to getting there. In general this has worked pretty well in keeping me motivated. So below are my pre-sabbatical Meeting With Self... from ideas I need to resolve, supplies I need to buy, procuring a gallery/retail space for a Thanksgiving event and a December show... I though posting here would help keep me on track...
I'll be checking back in regularly on my progress so stay tuned and I hope to get more of my new comic books pre-production sketches up soon.

I've been home sick the last couple days and have been catching up on podcast while recovering from what seems to be a fun bout of allergy f.u.... There's a great RadioLab podcast they just released on Parasites and this is the lil critter that got conjured up as a result of listening in. Check out the podcast, there's some fascinating stuff, like how your fondness of your cat may actually be the result of you being a victim of Toxoplasmosis...

I started this drawing a few post back with the intention of coloring it in. I started digitizing it and decided it would be my first submission to Tilteed.com. This required a simpler color palate, 6 max. So if you like it, go vote for it and maybe we can get it printed up!
I haven't been big on the T-Shirt contest scene but Tilteed.com has a combination of exposure, compensation and artist rights that's got me excited about the possibility of what these sites can be for indy t-shirt designers. It also provides me a chance to do shirts and designs that are a bit beyond my current capabilities. The site is new and the community small but there have been some pretty cool shirts made, my favs so far

So join up, vote up and submit some stuff too...
