Over the last few years I've been super busy with book covers, magazine covers, personal commissions,convention posters, etc.  I'm currently in the midst of transitioning from doing art for others to doing art for me and my fans.  If you'd like to see what I'm up to...

Well this past month was super busy, which is a great thing.  I finished a book cover for a dear friend of mine & a commission for Kobold Quarterly.  I'm hopeful that both things turn into something big for all involved.  :) I hope you guys are all doing well!  I just bought a little MP3 player so that I can finally listen to music of my choosing in my car instead of having to listen to the stoopid radio. (They never play anything good.)  I've also decided to start working out, eating right & taking care of myself again.  This started by getting a big ass king-sized bed that's one of those pillow top, posteurpedic things that won't kill my b

Today is a special day worthy of celebration--because you are a special person worthy of celebration, and it is your birthday.  You in all the universe are a unique product of unique experience that have shaped a unique and compelling perspective. You merit interest and attention; you merit praise.  Your presence in this shared reality makes that reality a better place.  For that, and your brave and generous sharing of the products of your experiences and creativity, I pause to note that I rejoice in you, and wish you a truly HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
May you find this a year of solid accomplishment, of a strong and justified sense of vindication in all that you do.  May you never grow so firm in your convictions that you become immune to reason, may you never grow so flexible that your backbone disappears.  May you face courtesy with courtesy, honesty with honor, and never allow yourself to become soiled by the vileness of a cause or opposition.  Remember what you believe and that for which you are fighting, welcome a repentant brother, be just as implacable as the grimmest foe.  Rejoice in victory, heal from defeat, rise from both to fight with all you have to offer again.  A very happy birthday to you--and may you be ever a Happy Warrior.
