MuseHub Site Banner

Okay…I admit it. I am super proud of this one. This is for the MuseHub.biz website I just recently did an interview with. It’s an awesome new directory service for freelance writers and artists and it’s growing fast. (And no, Lauren didn’t ask me to write that, I just dig her site.)

Anyway, check ’em out if you haven’t already. You can do so by clicking the image below. As for me, I’ve gotta get ready for YART this Saturday! I’ll be posting about that soon.

More old comic art from The Balance

An unfinished splash page from my comic project The Balance.

I forgot to post this yesterday, whoops! Anyway, I’ve got plenty of old drawings and concepts from The Balance so I’ll just go ahead and throw another one out there. At the bottom I have a larger version since it’s a wide picture.

I’m deep in the middle of a bunch of contract work at the moment, but I plan to try and do one of my more detailed blog posts soon. Lots of shows to cover and review for example, and I have some animation projects coming up.

Elegy

a tree in autumn reds and purples with a halftone background and cicada husks clinging to the branches

This is a digital painting of a lovely tree we used to have in our backyard. The cicadas loved it. Unfortunately it died one year and we had to cut it down. Our neighbors lost a tree as well, I heard it was some sort of worm epidemic that claimed a lot of the trees in our neighborhood. I did an earlier version with much brighter colors but ultimately decided on the more autumn-colored piece.

I did this piece so large that I was able to isolate one of the cicada shells on the tree and make the small print from this post!

A Message

A colorful blimp depicting a field of flowers hovers above a dirty, impersonal colorless city. Environmental statement.

You may recognize this art from my Franklin Street Outdoor Art Sale post! This is the full piece here, entitled “A Message” and conceived by me as an environmental statement after I watched the old Charlton Heston classic “Soylent Green” for the first time.

After seeing that callous and weary depiction of a dystopian and colorless future, I envisioned a bleak city where the only suggestion of beauty and nature was found on the advertising blimp hovering above the smog. While I originally feared this blimp may be advertising a beauty that no longer exists, others have told me the blimp represents the hope we cling to by a green thread (environmentalism). I prefer their interpretation, don’t you?
