For a few months now I've been working on a new website featuring my own prints for sale. This week is the official launch of FolkloreForge.com! In the future I hope to add other artists whom I respect and who would like the opportunity to showcase their work, broaden their audience, and get in on the ground floor of a select community of talented artists and storytellers.
In the meantime, I urge to to explore it and offer any comments or suggestions on how to make it better.
As most of you can tell I rarely post journals, only updating them if I have something to say (even more rare if it's anything intelligent) but something happened over the weekend that I must talk about.
On Saturday, Ralph McQuarrie passed away.
For many of you, his name may not be that familiar but you knew his work regardless. He was the primary concept artist George Lucas hired back when he was still trying to pitch Star Wars to studios. He's the man who would define what the legendary film saga would look like for the next 3+ decades. Without him, there very well would never have been a Star Wars. At least not in the way we know it.
