My latest art print -- Squamous Island is the fictional location of the Fogg House in my once and future webcomic "ArcaneTimes". Discovered by the members of a shipwrecked crew in 1853. Those that survived the harsh winter found themselves changed by the experience and rather than seeking rescue, founded the first settlement there Port Manitou.
I've written a great deal of back history on the place over the years getting ready for that time when I feel I could write the comic itself again. The town and the surrounding area which I will detail more in the future serves as the creepy northwoods setting for quite a few of what I hope you will find as entertaining stories -
Elsewhere, sales at this years Emerald City Comic-con were mixed, but I got to see a lot of cool people and with the help of one patron, even got one of my Cactiod Jim posters signed by Nathan Fillion himself - so all in all, I'd call it good.
Now my eyes turn to the next convention on my 2016 schedule. Next weeks "Crypticon Seattle" (http://crypticonseattle.com/). This will be the first time I attend a 'horror' convention so I have no clue what to expect.
Looking over my portfolio I've noticed that despite the sheer number of monsters that I've drawn over my career very few of them have made it into print form. So now I'm digging through the archives to see if anything might appeal to them there 'splatter-junkies'.
Here or there over the last few months I've made time to record some short story readings for my favorite podcasts. Three are live now and a fourth will be soon. If you'd like to give them a listen - Check it out at ARCANE RADIO blog where I try to maintain links to every one of my weird little audio adventures.
Lastly - I got a job offer to work on the new edition of one of my most favorite RPG properties ever PARANOIA!
I bought the original West End Games white box set for PARANOIA back in high school some odd 30 years ago (good god... 30 years ago, I need to lie down...) - We loved it as kids. Some of my happiest high school memories come from running that game. I've bought almost every edition that came out ever since, and too now be a part of the game - as a cover artist no less - is quite a culmination of what truly is a life goal I didn't know I had.
That said - not everyone is happy about it. The Kickstarter that funded this edition is behind schedule and people are grumpy. Unfortunately some have decided to take that anger out on me and my shriveled art ego. I'm trying to stay positive and not let them ruin this happy moment for me. I am, as I said, a long... (30 years... oof!) term fan of PARANOIA. I know the subject matter very well and I'm very proud of the art I've done.
