Just slapping this together to let anyone who I know of who follows me on Deviant what I am up to art wise among other things. I find myself surprisingly busy for someone who is doing the equivalent of a dog chasing his tails shadow. Currently on the art table is thumbnails for two pages which I will be penciling for what I hope to be a rebirth anthology for Castout Comics. If you don't know who or what Castout is don't worry your not alone. Its a small independent "comic company" comprised of myself and a few friends who contribute work in hopes of it seeing press. It has not been a successful venture in the purest sense but it has over the years created a large amount of work which we hope to include in this anthology.
I'm still at work on my America-Manga venture entitled Shotgun Kitten. I did complete a ten page prologue which was included in Rewat Imak's Ash Ashley Volume 2. Manga is fun but more difficult than I anticipated but I have managed to stick with it so far so I am pleased with myself for that. Speaking of Rewat Imak I am also coloring a few pinups of his for what I believe is his Ash Ashley calendar as part of an art trade. Its fun work and Its also helping me learn more.
Also I have been taking a Kubert Correspondence penciling course over the last year or so. Ive almost completed it and have only one more assignment to turn in. Its been a very informative learning experience and its nice to have the feedback of trained professionals when you can get it. Deviant can sometimes be a great place for that as well so when anyone here offers critiques of my work I am always pleased.
O.k. I think that catches me all up. On a closing note I wanted to ask if anyone would be interested in art trades? Ive seen quite a few of you have great success with them and would love to have some of the art created by my favorite Deviant members. I also know that many of you are terribly busy so I understand if you simply do not have time. In any case I hope everyone is and continues to do well. I should be posting artwork soonish depending on which projects I'm pleased enough to want to share. As always thank you for your support and encouragement.
