Haven’t updated in a bit…so figured I’d take a moment.

This weekend I’ll be at my first Art Fair here in Orlando (on Sunday Oct. 21 at Lake Eola in Orlando). Which should be interesting. I’ll have a tent (thanks to my in-laws for sharing) and a bunch of original paintings I haven’t shown off yet. We’ll see how it goes, so if you’re local stop by.

Some of you know I used to work in video games for quite a while…but ditched most of that work a few years ago to devote most of my time to drawing girls. Devoted to my faithful drawings like a monk. except I don’t wear a robe. and I guess monks aren’t supposed to think about girls. Ok, so not like a monk at all. But I’m still devoted to my ‘faith’ :) . Tangent aside, last week game company Valve released their newest game package, ‘the Orange box’. Which included the continuation of the Half-Life series, as well as a few other brilliant games like Portal and Team Fortress 2 (which has some of the best art direction I’ve ever seen in a game..and it’s a blast to play too!). Some people are fan-boys for comics or artists or tv shows…this is what I’m a fanboy for. The first Half Life game is what got me interested in making video games instead of pursuing animation for film and tv. So if anyone ever wants to get put to the top of a sketch list at a con, ask for a sketch of one of the characters from that game ;) .

Speaking of cons, it looks like I won’t be going to Texas for the Wizard World show in November. I decided to take a break from traveling around the country for now. Sorry!
