West Canaan Wizards Cover Art

I have been busy...

For those of you that don't know, I recently left my full time job to be a stay at home dad, and freelancer. While so much of what that entails is just as wonderful as it sounds, I find myself cramming work into all the little nooks and crannies of my free time. As you might guess, this is tiring, and leaves little time for blogging (or even a pipe and a pint of Guinness). Things are settling though. The girls are both good kids (they make my life easier and richer than perhaps I deserve) and Abby still goes to school two days a week, so as I begin to get a grip on the schedule things will get calm again.

So. The good side of being busy, is that there's some new work to show you all! This one is for the O.G.R.E.s (Organization of Gamers and Roleplaying Enthusiasts) and their game "West Canaan Wizards". Basically it was described to me as "Harry Potter" meets "Varsity Blues". It was a lot of fun to work on, and it allowed me to try out some new things. I feel like each one is better than the last one, so I'm very happy with the progress things are making. I have all the process work as well, so hopefully later this week I can post that and talk a little more.

I also have a couple of new "Daily Life" Drawings in the works, but unfortunately they tend to fall to the bottom of the pile. Hopefully I can get one of them out soon too.
Until Next time, take care and be good.
Your friend,

Wow! I am always blown away by people with artistic talents. I think you captured their description of their game perfectly!

As for working from home and how exhausting it can be, I used to be a court reporter and it's amazing how much of that work is done at home, basically meaning that I could find myself in front of the computer at 2:00 in the afternoon and suddenly realize that I've not changed into "real" clothes or brushed my teeth yet...

Endearing, no?

That is--WOW--clever, insidious, fabulous! Whatever you're doing to produce stuff like this, keep it up!

p.s. How about a Daily Life calendar for 2011? I'd buy it! I'd post it! I'd have two blogs to offer it on.

Thanks for dropping by Pearl! I've been really enjoying reading your posts, and it means a lot to me that you took the time to check me out.

Nance, THAT is a great idea! Lets see how it goes in the next few weeks, because I'm really pretty excited about it!
