Busy Friday

Friday's are turning out to be very, very busy. I updated my "Throwback Thursday" pic today. Shame on me. I have a mentoring gig now in the morning, then start up at the Y with "Drawn to Read", and finally end at Drawing and Painting at the FVAC. (that's where I did these two charcoal pics)

I owe you a Thursday Throwback...

Where does the week go? This pic is also from waayyy back in '96. Willie shaving. Way ahead of his time.

Thursday Throwback Part 2

Nurse Lena concept sketch

Thursday Throwback

Welcome to "Throwback Thursdays"! This was a sketch design for the original studio space in Simsbury from 1996.

Ohh, I got a review!

That makes me very happy! Tomorrow, I'm gonna start a new theme - it's gonna be called, "Throwback Thursdays!" It'll be a fond look back at some older work from my first little sketchbooks from college. Let's see if we recognize anything...

Has this ever happened to you?

I had a great weekend. I believe we have found a great team for an upcoming job. You're gonna hate me for this but...I still gotta wait before I say too much. The second I find out more, I'll let you know. In the meantime...did you ever forget your lunch?

Now that things are in full swing...

It's tough getting used to the new schedule of studio hours, teaching hours, road hours and office hours. BUT, I still feel like I'm producing, so here's what I'm up to:

Wolf logo is DONE. It was fun and the client is very happy, that means we're happy too! Steven and I enjoyed that one.

Speaking of working together, Steven, Norman, and myself worked on a couple of jobs this week. A lot of fun, tough deadline, and I'll let you know more after the next couple of days. It's rare for all three of us to be able to work on one gig.

And finally, the blood soaked month of September continues. Blood Rider = Bad Fun. I'm starting to look at western type graphic novels for inspiration. My fav... Trio Grande: Adios Palomita from Heavy Metal. More to follow...I'll see ya soon!

School is in...

Today was all about school. I started out the day doing some loose pencils for the Blood Rider. Page 12 to be exact. After that I went to Central School in Simsbury, CT to help out Dan, a contest winner for a design he did for the school. After that visit, I was able to ink what we had worked on (the wolf pic) and Mr Kuster, used his graphic design skill to tweak it. Later, I checked the mail to find an invitation to a local High School's "Thank you breakfast". It was for mentoring/intern scenario from last school year. When you have a studio called Free Lunch, you gotta go. Finally, I started up a "Drawn to Read" project with the kids at the Y. We read quietly for 30 minutes and draw something we read about. (I read the Star Wars: Force Unleashed novel. :^D giggle )

Ohh, lookie here!

Today was a good day. I almost finished inking the Black Roses story. I also started my contract with the YMCA today. Tonight I'm gonna work on the Blood Rider for as long as I can. Here's a commission from a show I did last week.
