This was an idea I’d had since last year that I wanted to try out, but didn’t quite get around to making it a reality. Too much else was going on. I’ve experimented with this format before, and liked how it was capable of showing several styles in one piece. I guess this ended up as kind of the same format grid as those Art Vs. Artist images, and I could’ve done a new one of those, but I decided I wanted to do this instead.
For those who have a bit of interest in process info like I do, this started off as penciled, inked and lettered on paper, then it was scanned and processed further in Photoshop.
There really isn’t much more to say about it, except that I wish you all a Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays! I hope 2022 is good to all of us.
Well, I find myself in a strange position at the moment: buried under a number of various side projects. It’s unusual for me to get hit all at once like this, so I’m not quite sure what to make of it. They’re all the kinds of interesting and challenging assignments that are hard to say “no” to, and should be a lot of fun to see through. Gotta keep them all moving though. If you can imagine me frantically juggling to the musical accompaniment of the “Sabre Dance,” you’ll get the idea.
Unfortunately, though I’ve got all these projects going, they’re all just works-in-progress at the moment. None of them are done and ready to post. Even if they were, some of the people I’m doing them for might not be ready for me to put them up quite yet. And with the holidays so close, I don’t think I’m going to have time to do anything else special for my site right now. So in lieu of that, I hope maybe some sneak peeks at a couple of the works in progress will suffice for the moment. It’s either that, or let this month go by without posting anything.
One brand new item I can point out: I am pleased to announce that I am now being represented by Ellen Ann Mersereau, who works with a roster of some of the most talented creators in the business. You can find her contact info over to your right in the sidebar.
Wherever you are, whatever your current circumstances, I hope the holidays are good to you; that you have a good Christmas, and an excellent New Year!
I’m not sure whether I’ll manage to get my galleries up before the holidays or not, but I thought I’d at least get one more post in before the end of the year. That project I alluded to in my previous post last month? This is a teaser/portion of that illustration. Down the road at some point when I’ve been given clearance, I’ll post the full image. This was a fun one to do, as I got to try out some things in Photoshop I’d never done before.
And in case I don’t wind up posting anything else before then: hope you all have a good holiday season, wherever you go, whatever you do.
