Minor Progress

Not finished yet, but this project’s going much more quickly than I expected, so here’s page two, which I started today and hope to finish tomorrow (UPDATE- Finished):

I’ll be moving in about a month, so I’ve set that as my deadline for sending it off to publishers, squeezing it in among my normal commissions.

Continuing work on this independent project after putting it on the back burner for a little bit:

Will be searching for a publisher once I complete these few pages and finish writing the prose part of the script. It’s going surprisingly quickly, though – I wanted to do a combination of oil-like, volumetric painting for some of the characters and ink-and-wash work for the rest of them, and I think I’ve really gotten into the zone: While I did that cylinder thing a couple weeks ago, doing the rest of the page only took this one night.

Also did another doodle on one of those Facebook apps, during a quick snack-and-coffee break:

What happens to that last 1% of the bacteria, anyway? Do they go on to do some kind of microbial version of I am Legend? Or Mad Max? They wander the post-Lysoliptic wasteland alone, searching for other survivors and the lost knowledge from the Before Time that can restore their civilization. That’s my theory, anyway, but I was always more of a physics kid than a biology one.

Just got an email saying that while I was a finalist for the Gershwin Hotel Artist-in-Residence Program, they decided to go with someone else. Poo. I’ll have to shop around my idea some more to see if I can get a grant to build it. And I’ll try again in October; I’m not exactly low on gallery-style ideas right now.

There comes a time in every man’s life when he has to draw adorable cartoon hamsters for a childrens’ video game. Check one out in the Digital section.

This is, of course, everywhere, but it’s too good not to post:

I think this would be a fun job to have:

And I think this would be a fun place to live:

(It was certainly fun to model)

And I think This is a great read.   I very much admire Freeman Dyson.

Started a new book proposal for something I’m tentatively calling “Fate Circuit,” a remake of a time travel story I did when I was in Japan. Here’s a page from the original version, circa 2004:

Pretty literal stuff, as you can see. Here’s page one of the new version (sans speech balloons or being done):

A lot funkier and more experimental this time; I really want to play with what I can do with the watercolor and oil styles I’m trying to mesh, here. It still needs a lot more work, but when the drawing part is finished, I think I’m going to have all the text coming out of that cylinder thing’s fingers.

Speaking of cylinders, I also decided to whip up an O’Neill Colony the other day for a little change of pace and to exercise my nascent 3D modeling skills:colonyimage3
Still needs a little work… Well, now I’ve got something to do while eating dinner.
