In my last journal I talked about drawing more comics. I’ve been watching some older anime series lately, and it got me to thinking about what I like in anime (mainly pre 2003 or so). It also got me to thinking about what I’d like to draw in my own comics. I really likewhat those older series were doing in terms of action, adventure, and characters, but I don’t want to make a retro-revival, or a throwback of any sort. What I want to do is make something that gives me the same “feel”, but also takes into account what we’ve learned and maybe what we’ve forgotten in the meantime.  

I better explain what I mean by “feel”. One of my art inspirations has been the pinup and cartoon art of the past. My art doesn’t really look much like that, given that I’m using a totally different style, but that’s a major influence. That’s what I mean by feel. As an aside, I’m grateful I found an audience who appreciates this kind of pinup art.

So keeping that in mind, I need to do some more thinking to make sure that my comics really do have that feeling of something I enjoy, without being a copy or wallowing in my own personal nostalgic thoughts.

That’s something I’ve been thinking about lately, and hopefully something I can pull off. More on that when I get more done.

Art Trades, Requests and Commissions

The title says it all. If you have any questions, feel free to note me.

Art Trades: Open

I do art trades, when I have enough time. I don't want to be rude, but I've put a lot of effort into growing as an artist. I know I'm not a great artist, but I want to trade fairly.

Collaborations: Open

Same as Art Trades.

Commissions: I do not take commissions.

I do not take requests.

Hey, thanks for the note- I've added a watch to your new one... you're doing some really nice work, so I'd like to keep seeing it.

I didn't know you had a gallery here....
good to see Nene!!!

I figured it was a good idea to set something up here, get some notice and all... gotta work hard on my art, though, to make it worthwhile.

I hope you don't mind, but I can't remember what forum/newsgroup you know me from... you can send a private note, of course.

Please bear with me for the next month or two; I am on dialup and as such will be rather slow in updating and doing things with my site. This will hopefully change soon.
