Great things from other people whose talent I envy... or things that I just like. :D Most of the stuff in here is much better than I can do.

I'm getting closer to clearing out my queue. I should be ready to take on new commissions in early late August early September late November. Computer problems set me back, and I'm concentrating on completing the 1000 Days of Doodles.

Ahoy all,

It's been a while since I've written one of these State of the Artist posts -- quite frankly, I've been rather too busy to update everyone on how busy I've been.  (.-.)  The 1000 Days of Doodles has been consuming all of my energy; making up for the 215 days I had missed prior to mid-July this year is taking a lot of effort.  I've been averaging just under 2.5 Doodles per day for the last 100 days; I keep aiming for more, but that seems to be about my limit.  Fortunately that rate is sufficient to completely erase my deficit; I've now got just over 90 Doodles to draw in just over 40 days, so I should be able to complete the project as planned!  If all goes well I will in fact catch up by the end of November and be able to go back to the intended rate of 1 Doodle per Day for the final 3 1/2 weeks of the project.  \o/

I'm really behind on responding to comments and messages lately; weeks and weeks and weeks behind.  My apologies for that, but I simply have not had the energy.  Once I'm caught up on the Dailies, I will be tackling my inbox....   Screen Shot 2018-11-13 at 11.05.04 AM by Amarynceus

Commissions are still closed.  I've been getting a lot of interest lately, which I appreciate.  However, I simply will not have time this year for any new commissions; I still have several important ones to finish before I can in good conscience open my queue again; also, I'm very tired, and need a holiday from art after the 1000 Days is over.  The earliest that I will be doing a new round of commissions is late January.

Well, that covers the basics of what's going on around here!  I haven't been meeting my daily quotas for a couple of days now, so I need to get back to drawing.

Are you interested in doing a trade as one of your daily doodles?

If you are going to be considering commissions soon, would you be able (or willing) to make artwork involving Mediterranean galleys? I have a series of historical fiction sea-stories set in late 15th century Mediterranean, which I plan to publish in the near future, and your artwork for covers would be just about perfect.

Just came across your artwork and I love it!
I have to ask though, does anyone else see the irony in navel artwork, from someone living in a landlocked, desert state? 

Hoping things are going good for you!

Not sure if you follow / seen their art, but thought of you when I saw their DA. He's got some sweet ships on there. :P

My mind boggles at the quality of your art! It's so good it makes me lose hope :P
Have you ever worked with Baron-Engel? It really feels like you two are cut from the same cloth. If you don't know him, I think you two would get on swimmingly.
I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful art, so I can die an early death from envy.

I just found you, and your art is seriously amazing.

Good job!

Do you happen to have a youtube with some speedpaints or anything? I would be very interested to see the progress behind your work.
