I wanted to first say Happy New Year to everyone who stops by here. It's been...I don't even remember it's all been such a blur. 2 or 3 years we've had this blog? It's always been a lot of fun for me and I hope this new year is just as cool. To me it's what you make of it and I've always tried to balance some dumb fun stuff, with I guess some artistic "shop talk" and as much art as possible.....whether it's something I like, something I've inked...or something I've drawn myself...I try and keep it interesting.
I basically learned to draw here as many of the old school lurkers and posters probably remember. It's been 3 years I've been tooling away on my penciling...or whatever weird thing I've gotten involved in (photography, mixed media, abstract, band drawings...). I hope my little attempts at different things continue to keep people wondering "what the hell is wrong with this guy, whats he doing?...or.... when is he going to draw a book?"
My current workload includes inking Whilce on Batman and Wetworks for a few more issues...although some personal stuff for me knocked me off inking Wetworks for 2 issues(I think issues 5 and 6)....and I am working on a pitch now for a brand new book....I'm starting it up as a grass roots thing. But I can say it would be a work that I would write, draw, and color. (and not ink funny enough..but more about that later)
you'll just have to wait and see. It's a different approach...but honestly I wouldn't do it any other way.
So yeah, I wanted to say a proper Happy New Year to everyone here. I hope you all had a great Holiday season(enjoy your machaca plate) and I say now....let's get to work.
