Yep, still kickin'
Hey everyone! Holy monkey; I'm approaching 22k pageviews? What the hell is everyone looking at!?   In all seriousness, I'm very grateful to everyone who's taken their time to look at my stuff. Wanted to drop a line and let you know I hadn't forgotten you guys. I still lurk around here every few days, or if I forget at least once a week. You may notice that I haven't posted too much lately, and the main reason for that is that at the moment I'm wrapped up in a number of things and still doing tons of digital painting, none of which I'm able to share at this point. Keep your eyes peeled later this fall, and I'll be able to share more informat

How do I Instagram?
Alright, alright already! I get the hint. You kids and your social media *grumble grumble*.... I went ahead and created an Instagram Account, for those how would like to follow me there. I'll be posting a lot more of my everyday-sketches and WIP's over there, while still putting up the more finished pieces over here and my site. Again, you can Insta-my-Gram here. Or, if you're contrarian, here. How about here? I learned that trick from raising my kids; giving the illusion of choice, while still guiding them where you want :-) And as always I am (gumble-grumble-darn kids and their technology-grumble-grumble) also on Twitter, Tumblr, and Fa

When you wish upon a star...
Alright, I finally get to level with you guys... The big thing that I keep alluding to is that I finally fulfilled a life-long ambition, and can say: I've officially produced art for Disney http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2014/10/999-happy-haunts-the-organist-pipes-a-swinging-wake/ About a month ago, I was contacted by a friend who works in the ad division at Disney (most you who know me can probably guess who) and wanted to produce a poster for "Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party" at Walt Disney World that runs through Sept and Oct. My part of the project was to depict one of the doomed denizens of the infamous Haunted Mansion c

Great things to come!
Hey, ever'body. Wanted to do a quick update, to keep you in the loop. I'm trying to get better at utilizing social media in all its myriad incarnations and be more proactive in creating engaging content. It's a little difficult, only because I feel like I'm writing the same thing in just four different places, four different ways. I understand that there are resources around that let you sort of 'omnipost' your content in one interface, that gets distributed to all the necessary channels that I may look into. Also, it's been a while since the last post because relatively little has been going on for me in my art related endeavors until muc

Please don't ask me why...
...but I now have a Tumblr Seriously, I don't know why; as a cranky old man I hate the internets and all the meme-hypertexting-tweetbooking-wizardry it entails. However I noticed that a lot of artists I like and admire had posted several journals to the effect of "Sorry I haven't been on here! I post a lot more often on Tumblr!" Long story short, I should just learn that resistance is futile and embrace the suck. If you could find it in your heart to also embrace the suck and follow me on Tumblr, I'd be grateful. I promise to be 99% gif-free. Also, Facebook. Sincerely, McGillustrator
