death ampersand taxes.

I've been spending all my time on a project I can't share. I should be able to when it hits the market... the sad part is it probably won't for a year or so. And by then I won't care anymore.

Between this unnamed project and my filing 2007 taxes, I've been way busy. A word to the wise; if you're freelance, file your taxes quarterly. It sucks to ignore the law. Duh.

But here's a little snippet from a piece I can share. I'm working on it for an upcoming show. It's about feelings. But more so, it's about Zombies.

I modified it to reflect the somber tone of this tax season.

ouch.

A little bit of a big drawing.

I'm working on some awesome stuff. But I can't post it. Which drives me nuts.

But I can post this sneak peak of a large-scale drawing I'm doing.

I work on it every now and then when I need a break from the digital side of things, I figure if I work big enough, it will keep me from scanning it and finishing it up in the computer. I think the drawing is on a 20" x 30" piece of Arches.

Deep Down Delights.

Remember that Octopus from A Day in the Life?

I think he took a trip to the Neon Factory and came back looking mighty bright.

whoa! my future's so bright...

I was going to bring it into to Photoshop, but I thought that straight-up Illustrator fit the bill just fine. But, like always, I might not be done yet...

Bright Eyes.

I posted a drawing in A Day in the Life. It's of an octopus, and I really like it.

I want to try some different things with it, so I started playing around. Here's a sneak peak of one idea. It's totally random right now.

my, what lovely eyes you have.

I'll probably do a few different things with the octopus. I'm trying to get used to my new workspace...

See these icons?

Adobe CS3. Very slick, very sweet. But things are slightly different, and it throws me off my game. I feel so slow.

egg cakes for babies.

I'm not normally the Easter type, but this year my friend Chris C thought it would be fun to dye some eggs. So dye we did.

These eggs were made by (in order) myself, Lindsay, Chris C and Emily.

a tease is someone who doesn't give up the goods.

I can't say what these are, who they're for, or if they'll exist at all...

So for now let's call it a secret. A secret I might be pretty excited about.

I've been told I'm a tease. Go figure.

meow, purr, hiss and bite.

I'm bouncing between a bunch of little projects and pieces. Nothing can keep my attention for too long. I think it's the spring weather. I'm restless. It's awesome outside. I want to run out and kick a can or something.

work in progress...

This is something I'm working on. This progress shot isn't at all representative of what it will look like in the end. I just threw it together to disguise how rough it is right now...

I just wrote the first thing that came to my head. But now I kind of like it. Maybe too many R's in "purr," though.
