Journal 09


I’ve been so busy this week I thought I’d never get a new blog post up. It’s been so long I’m not sure where to begin. As you can see, this blog is peppered with shots of my new workspace. It’s been a little funky trying to get settled in here. The space itself is wonderful, but the room gets unbearably hot and stifling when the sun’s up. Luckily I’m fairly nocturnal, but it has made things interesting on days when I’ve tried to get to work earlier. There are a few more photos here if anyone wants to see more.

“Sharp Shooters” has been on the History Channel this week. While my own contribution was very small, it was gratifying and exciting to see my pictures on the TV screen. All of my illustrations had been coloured and animated by the production company and I had no idea what to expect. I have to say I was very impressed by the results. There’s been talk of doing a similar project for the same company, but I have no details yet.

New Projects
Yes, new projects, two of them at the moment. Amazingly enough, the Digital Webbing Talent Search page actually works sometimes (I have to admit I’d just about given up on it). This week I’ve started working MA based writer, Adnan Virk, on a funky little contemporary horror story. I won’t give away too much now, but Adnan’s a talented writer with a very solid script and concept. The project is titled “My Second Life” and I should have some more details on this in the future.

I’m also cooking up a bit of light hearted Lovecraftian horror with my old college friend, Ben Powell. I had an idea for a story, sent it off to Ben, and he, being the uber talented writer that he is, has taken it and run with it. Again, I can’t say too much yet, but both these projects are very exciting, and both creators are a blast to work with. More on both these projects when I have it.

Near as I can tell that’s all the news that’s fit to print at the moment. I’ll leave you with this little shot of yours truly sitting down to work.

Looks like a nice space, Daniel -- I'm sure you'll make the most of it!

Looks great, Dan! And that's great news about your new projects, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Also, Devil's Due just announced a Talent Search for two new projects. Check it out.

Jamie, thanks a bunch. I'll have to check that out. BTW, have you seen Devil's Due current G.I.Joe series? Those are some books I wouldn't mind working on.
