Maintaining this blog forces me to ask why I keep this blog. Partially it is a marketing device. A way to keep in touch with people who might hire me, or at least want to see what I am doing. It is partially a way to collect my thoughts about what I do and share with friends and professional contacts. It gives me a place to talk about myself, and not ask corresponding questions about you, the reader. (Though you are welcome to drop comments.) Some blogs are about a thing other then the blog creator. I wish this blog was about collectible plastic figures. Or my love of 17th century lead plates. Or…well anything but just me and what I do. So I wander a bit on here and talk about comics, and strips and other art I see. I try not to overload it with “I was sitting in the restaurant today and thinking about lemonade. You ever think about lemonade?” I figure if you are at this blog then you have at least a passing interest in what I am drawing or writing and not about the celebrity I saw at lunch today, or how cool my editor is. Though I do waste your time telling you how busy I am, and that’s the real point today. I’m getting so busy, I can hardly spare the time to update here, but I will try. Though I would much rather be drawing or trying to draw better I should say. Or writing…well, learning to write better.
So here it is – today’s blog post. A page from a project I have been working on for quite sometime. It’s pretty low res. The original is huge, like 29 inches. It’s still being worked on, but I like where it is going.
