Once more, from the ashes!

Once more, from the ashes!

So, yeah, it's... it's been awhile. Work's been busy, life's been busy, and while I've been making art, I just... haven't been posting it here. But, hey, why not breathe life back into the old account, right? One of the things I did last year was draw the interior illustrations for '3rd and Starlight', a collection of sci-fi/fantasy short stories. The book also contains a reprint of my first published short story, 'A Matter of Interpretation.' I'm good to post the images now that the book is out, so I'll be putting those up, along with a piece of fan art and perhaps some assorted sketches (assuming I can find/scan them).

Damn, it's been awhile...

Damn, it's been awhile...

It's been the better part of three years since I last made a journal entry on this site, and while I've done some drawing here and there, there are a host of factors (my computer crashing, my having moved, work, and numerous other distractions) that have kept me from posting much of anything in ages. On the upside, I've got a new project in the works and should start posting more regularly again soon.

I LIVE.

I LIVE.

I've uploaded some of the random things I drew in the last six months or so, in the first step of my effort to get back into the swing of things.  My scanner needs more love, that's all.

Hey there. I feel I should introduce myself. This is Nathan. I was down on New Years to visit Mech and her family, which I guess includes you. Thanks again to your family for having me down. I had a blast.
