It has been a LONG time since I've really done much here, and there's been plenty of reason....

Since the comic work has not produced anything resembling a consistent income I've had to take on a second job, which over this past holiday basically became a full time job that still doesn't pay enough for me to live off of. It's effectively cost me some comic work and while i'm not happy about that, I'm not disappointed with a check rolling in every 2 weeks however small. Clearly things will need to switch more in the other direction because....

I GOT ENGAGED!!!! I posted a pictured I did a while ago called, 'My Muse' and the woman in the picture has agreed for some crazy reason to marry me. So a lot of changes are coming down the road but all of it basically means hunkering down and getting more time to focus on getting more consistent comic work and pushing the holy hell out of my Patreon. Timothy Green II and myself have been discussing and working on things that will hopefully see light and are always down for collaborating on books and the like. 

So, I'll be working on art again at long last (an album cover job has just landed in my lap) and trying to get back into the rhythm of making videos of my process on various works.

You'll also not the lack of terms like resolutions and new start and all that, primarily because these are just extensions of things I need to refocus on and art hasn't stopped being my life, I've just had to make other money to support it.

So, I hope everyone had a happy holiday and I should be seeing more of all of you soon.
Some of you may have noticed I haven't been on in a while, so here's the basic scoop:

Work has slowed to nonexistent so among the bills overdue and not payed have been my phone (which is still off) and internet (which has only come back on a short while ago) so being able to do many of the most basic things to contact people and accomplish much have been quite limited, to say nothing of how I have subsequently neglected my Patreon page.

So now I jump back on the proverbial horse to see what I can do to get things financially back on track. So, if any of you creator types with need an inker you can actually pay......


The title says it all. About 6 hours condensed into about 14 minutes. Brush, Quill and Micron.
