Wow, how time flies. So much has happened in the last year that it's way too crazy and way too much to get into all of it. But really quick, here's the highs (and lows):
Just over a year ago (April 8, 2014), my father passed away. (No condolences necessary. Thanks. but it's been a year and everything is okay)
Last summer, I did a little freelance in-house work at Sideshow for some of the court of the dead stuff.
Just after Comic-Con, Sideshow offered me a job and I started working in-house (still freelancing, but full time in-house).
Earlier this year, we made that Sideshow relationship official and I am now a full time Sideshow employee (Fulfilling one of my big time goals).
Monsterpalooza was super awesome as usual. Jon Favreau was the first to buy something at the show, which means he now owns two of my pieces (Super cool!!)
My birthday was it's usual non-event (I prefer it that way, so no boo-hoo's).
Last week, I bought a new car and it was delivered to my house. I now have a sweet ride for the long commute into work.
There's the basic highlights. I've been working on some new stuff and there's stuff that I still need to post on here (I'll get to it as soon as I can). I want to share that stuff with all you guys. DA has really been a great community to me and has supported my work from the beginning, so thank you to everybody.
I hope you guys check back with me every now and again and remind me to keep posting the new work (if I happen to fall behind again).
Cheers to all and I hope the first quarter of 2015 has been a great one for you all.
