This year, I was also among the Silver trophy award winners for serving five years as a nomination committee member. It’s been an honor to have helped with the awards process.

Inktober is winding down. Just like Halloween, there’s only one more day left. So here’s my Inktober sketch for Oct. 30th, 2014.

Got the idea for this sketch through someone’s Facebook posting. It was an article about this Iranian feminist vampire film. The still from that movie intrigued me, so I went with it.

Can’t recall the exact time I started making homemade greeting cards. Most of the time I’ve made cards like these for friends. Here’s a few photos.

Above is a photo of a card made sometime around 2012. I’m trying to remember who I made this one for. While the recipient’s name escapes me (perhaps for a good reason), I can tell what I can recall. The drawing was done in either watercolor or gouache along with ink. Enclosed is a Phillip K. Dick quote. The card stock itself was left over from an art project.

Below may or may not be the same card as the one above. This might’ve been created during my blue hair phase two years ago.

Slow news day today. So I’m thinking of ways to supplement my income. For years people have been asking me about selling prints. So finally I’m doing something about it.

This morning I set up an account on RedBubble. See where it goes. So check it out. I’ll be selling greeting cards here. Been meaning to sell greeting cards anyway. Also available, prints, posters, cell cases and iPad covers. The cell cases and iPad covers are more on the pricey side, but look at it this way. These are unique covers that no one else will have. I guarantee you won’t see anyone else with a Quentin Crisp cellphone cover – or a Quentin Crisp greeting card since we’re at it. Anyway, the stuff posted is some of my recent work, and more will be posted soon. In the meantime, I’ll check out more of the on demand art sites.

We interrupt this blog for an important announcement.

inkwellbanner1Starting from April 15 to April 30th, 2013 you can vote in the Inkwell Awards.

http://www.inkwellawards.com/

The Inkwell Awards is a non-profit organization dedicated to the education and promotion of the art of inking. Inking is a much over-looked but crucial element to the comic book process. Everyone is encouraged to vote, whether you’re a fan or professional. The only difference this year is that the public is not allowed to vote in the The Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame Lifetime Achievement category. The winners will be announced live at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC June 7-9 2013. For more information, please click on the above Inkwell Awards link.
