Well, it seems I have had a setback with regards to my graphic novel.  My penciler has seemingly bailed on me, so that means I cannot finish the book in its current form.  However, I have enough pages for an issue one.  So I am turning it into a mini-series.  That way I can have other artists for subsequent issues.  My advice is, if you are not prepared to finish a job you take on, then don't bother taking it on in the first place.  Now a contract has been broken, and I have to investigate my next move, legal and otherwise.  sigh.

UPDATE

The book may be back on track after all! *crosses fingers*

Hey guys,

My kids book I`ve been working on the past couple of years will soon be up on Kickstarter.com.  As soon as that happens I`ll post about it.  I hope everyone who visits my profile will check it out when its ready.  you don`t have to contribute(and then miss all the great rewards I`ll be giving), but please help me out by spreading the link or word of mouth to it when its up.  That will be almost as good as the money.  :0

Thanks for any support you may be able to give!

So, on my way to work the other day, and......BAM!  Guy runs a red light and smashes into me.  My car spins around about four times into oncoming traffic.  Luckily I wasn't hit again! Needless to say it was not the best weekend I've ever had.  Lots of owies that day.  But at least I updated my site  www.artofamadman.com, now I just need to update my blog that I've been neglecting.

Want a custom illustration, or digital painting?  Or maybe just a nice black and white sketch.  How about a photo of some sort?  It's up to you.  Let me know what you want, and I'll do it for you(for a reasonable fee of course).  :)

I finally got my site just the way I want it for the most part.  Its mostly like three sites in one.  There you can view my stuff, and buy it from my online store.  But it also has a great blog section at www.blog.artofamadman.com where I can tell you all my deepest , darkest secrets.  Things that will keep you up at night, clutching a flashlight, your eyes darting back and forth....

Or you may just laugh your ass off

Please feel free to check it out.

Thanks.  :)

I want one...how do I get it?  My hope is to one day create the artwork or take the pic that will land me a recommendation for that coveted spot.  I feel I have definitely gotten stronger over the past year with my artwork.  Learning a Wacom was definitely no easy feat.  Especially when you are working on an underpowered laptop.  Thankfully I have a new powerful computer with a much bigger screen to work with.  Glory hallejulah.  No more brush hangups when I make a stroke with my pen.  Now there's nothing to hold me back but me.  Daily deviation here I come.

Finally, 1000 page views.  Seems to have taken forever.  Thanks to everyone who made it possible.  Now watch me already!
I am in the process of finishing a rather large script for a graphic novel about a zombie war, but the zombies are far different than traditional zombies, and is heavy on human drama as well as action. I need a sequential artist to do the layouts and pencils. I will handle inks and colors. I would do the pencils as well, but it being such a large project, the time required to finish every page by myself is staggering to say the least. I plan on publishing and promoting this myself, if it is not picked up after I shop it around. So either way, your name will get out there. I really believe in the story, and I think if it has strong art to back it up, it could make a big splash.  My brother-in-law who was to work with me on the project, unfortunately just does not have the time. There is a preview page in my galleryto show the type of tone the book will have.  He did the pencils, I di the rest.  Serious people only please.
I am finally getting my new site to look proper.  Still no where near done though.  So much art and photos to add.  It is one of many I have, but it is for selling my work.  Deviant Art takes a big chunk out of prints sold.  The kind that would make someone use the word "Ouch" in the classic cliche way.

Well, I have not been as active as I would like to be on Deviant Art.  Thats because I haven't had time to do much work.  Its hard when you have a full time job and a family to find the time to sit down for hours and work on a painting or illustration.  I hope to be changing all that, though.  I intend to devote more time to it(by staying up later if I have to, bye sleep *cries*)  but I really want to pursue art more.  I am a graphic art and web designer by day, but I want to do more photography, writing, and traditional types of art.  Over the next couple of days I wil reupload some art and photos that have had some minor tweaks because I wasn't fully happy with them(probably never will be, but rest assured you will be seeing a lot more new stuff from me as time goes on.  Well, thanks for reading my ramblings.
