Social Status Updates and Podcasts

So, I'm thinking of (hopefully) only updating my social statuses online from now on via this blog.  Why?  Because it is easier and hits everything in one shot nice and easy!  So stay tuned and watch for updates via this blog and/or your favorite My Face Page Chat site.
I am also really thinking of doing a podcast, possibly weekly or maybe more frequently on here, reading all of the Van Gogh letters (one each episode, don't worry), commenting on them and art in general.  Stay tuned.

Lots and lots going on!  When it rains it pours!  I am currently working on some new digital illustrations for several clients, a large mural design and illustrating a book for a client.  Here are some recent works:

This comic book cover is a digital illustration that I did with the Wacom Cintiq, Manga Studio EX5 and Photoshop CC.  I have to letter it now and it will be done.  I really like the Angelic army in the back ground!  There's lots of symbolism in this piece!  Can you find it all?

Here is what this piece looks like in progress.  On the left you can see the blue-line pencil that I used to sketch out my layout.  You remove this layer once the inks are laid down as shown on the right picture.

 

Here's the work beginning to be inked in...

The Bearded Man (in progress)...  Digital Oil Paint

This is the very first time that I have played around with digital oil paint!  It's very sexy!!!  This is obviously in progress.  This is just a piece that I am doing for myself for fun as time allows.

A digital water color design concept that I made for my friend's hair salon, Earthly Roots.  

So this week I'm wrapping up a portrait oil painting commission that I have been doing all year and I will be making some thumbnail sketches for my mural design and begin working on the book I'm illustrating.  Be sure to check back for current cool updates and maybe just maybe my podcast as well.
