Hey gang long time no bloggy. Sorry about that. I think my days have somehow shrunk to 18 hours or something. Anyway tons of stuff going on I need to update folks on so here goes.
First off October is convention season for me. woohoo! I will be at River Road Expo
at Tioga Downs Casino and I will be at Hero Bot Con 2
. There will be plenty of swag
to be had and if you're so inclined I am taking preorders on stuff until the 21st. I will be posting a swag list probably within the next couple of days so you can see and hopefully lock-up any items you want. Also as much as i'd like to meet you I understand not everyone can make it to central NY for comic conventions but if you still want items I can mail them to you, just need to get extra for shipping.
Next I'm back at school, taking fine arts and design at Corning Community College with delusions of moving on and getting my masters in illustration. It's been pretty fun so far. Much more laid back then AI.
On to commissions I have a little back log right now, thank you guys who are waiting for your patience. I will be taking a hiatus from commissions starting October 1st so if you're interested in commissioning any art work please get your project in before then.
Finally, I've been seeing this 30 day monster girl sketch challenge and it seems interesting. Next month i'm going to be doing a 30 day sketch challenge. The deal is each day has a subject or theme and you belt out a sketch for it, neat. So the monster girls thing seemed interesting but I wanted to come up with my own and any of you who find it interesting and want to tag along and join in feel free. With it being the month of Halloween and all I think I should pay tribute to the master of horror Stephen King and will be doing a King inspired sketch each day as follows,
Oct 1st - Carrie
Oct 2nd - Salem's Lot
Oct 3rd - The Shining
Oct 4th - Night Shift (pick a tale)
Oct 5th - Night Shift (pick a tale)
Oct 6th - The Stand
Oct 7th - Firestarter
Oct 8th - Cujo
Oct 9th - Pet Semetary
Oct 10th - Skeleton Crew (pick a tale)
Oct 11th - Skeleton Crew (pick a tale)
Oct 12th - It
Oct 13th - Misery
Oct 14th - The Green Mile
Oct 15th - Blood and Smoke (pick a tale)
Oct 16th - Full Dark, No Stars (pick a tale)
Oct 17th - Full Dark, No Stars (pick a tale)
Oct 18th - Cell
Oct 19th - Pick a story
Oct 20th - Pick a story
Alright so for the 1st 20 days, the challenge will explore scenes, characters and creepy crawlies from a number of relatively well known works by King. If you want to play the home version and aren't familiar with a particular piece on the list you can either do some research or substitute one you do know.
Oct 21st - Favorite Protagonist
Oct 22nd - Favorite Antagonist
Oct 23rd - Favorite Supporting Character
Oct 24th - Tragedy
Oct 25th - Nightmare Fuel
Oct 27th - Triumph
Oct 28th - Killer Object
Oct 29th - Haunted Local
Oct 30th - How "The Bangor Daily News" front page might look in a King story
Oct 31st - The Man Himself
These last few allow some exploration into specific scenes and characters and such that you may have liked to get to in the earlier days but didn't have an opportunity to explore.
I'll be posting mine in weekly blocks of 7 but will be working daily.
I'm going to try to get out of my comfort zone here and there, if you're participating you should too.
Other than that it's just one quick sketch a day.
I think this will be a lot of fun, join me if you like and spread the word among your friends.
Alright, I think that's it for now.
