Hi! What’s new in the new year?
Not much to say on the card front, other than I finally got around to having my latest order from Check Out My Cards shipped. A little over 100 more on the way. Night Owl & maybe a couple others will be getting their cards out of this deal.
What’s been taking a lot of my time the past week or so is a pretty new story idea deciding to start fleshing itself out in my head. So I started putting it to digital paper. Pretty happy with it so far. We call it Missionworks, a fantasy/steampunkish tale. It’s coming together quite nicely, and I’m excited to get to work on the story itself.
The other main thing I’ve been doing is polishing off my FATSA: Lord of the Dragons sketch cards. My main ones were finished days ago, but I just got what are my likely to be my Artist Proofs penciled and inked, and I’ve gotta say they are some of the nicer cards I’ve done in awhile. I end up despising how 75% of my cards turn out, but I’m really pleased with at least three of the four. I’ll be posting my FATSA cards here & dA & wherever else I can think of once I get them scanned and submitted for approval.
Now to get started on my Mac & Trouble cards. Don’t have much time on them, but I only have two (and two Artist Proofs) to do, so no worries there I guess?
I cleaned a bit. Got the place looking a little better than Reverend Jim’s, though it’ll be spring before the clutter levels start dropping dramatically (provided they don’t block the damn doors during spring cleanup, like they did in the fall… idiots). Next step in this stupidly long process: get a new (used) chair that isn’t broke so my back will stop bothering me so much.
Finally, card buying is about to go way down (yes yes, you’ll believe it when you see it), because I have the quite frankly insane idea of trying to hit both Otakon and The National this summer. The National is in Otakon’s home of Baltimore this year, and happens at the same place, something like three days after Otakon. It may be time to part with some of my bigger hits to raise funds. Also maybe get a few for-cash commissions or something? Please?
Guess that’s about all I’ve got for now. Hope to be back soon. Seeya.
Until our next…
