The days they come, but the years they go...

Just when you thought I'd disappeared off the face of the internet—I'm back. Not much to report in the ways of high adventure, mainly because work's blowed up in the past couple of months and I haven't had the energy/drive/gumption to be creative after clocking out for the day. Not that work's slowed down much, but Todd's having a Perhapanauts Classic Cover contest over on the 'Haps blog and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try to get some mojo flowing with an entry. The deadline is the end of the month and I don't want to spoil anything, so I'm only posting a small section of my entry. I'll do the same with the inks in the upcoming days.

As to the mojo I believe doing this piece did indeed start something simmering. It also helps that Lilah has been on a definite art/coloring kick as of late. May have to set her up with her own drawing table in the studio and we can push each other artistically.

First brew of the New Year will be bottled this weekend: a chipotle porter, which I hope will have just the right amount of smokey bite to it. I'll keep you posted on that as well.

oh, my curiosity could not be more piqued!!
i still don't know what you're doing--i had to look at that cool detail you posted for awhile and then just decided that i'd have to wait and see...
but i can't wait!!
glad you got a new post up--i certainly know how hard it is to find the time and how hard to generate something to talk about when nothing's going on. but this is great!
oh and btw--a little more than halfway through the stories in 'voices from the night' you gave me for my birthday and am loving most of them! (there are always a weak link or two in an anthology like that, but these are mostly prime tales!) thanks, brother!

Can't get the image of you and Lilah at matching drawing tables out of my head. (Though hers would be considerably smaller.) I'd love to see that painted by Rockwell. Awesome.

Good luck with the Chipotle Porter. ("And I hay-uped!")

Glad to see you back online.
