The Holidays have slowed me down a bit...

This is just a post to let everyone know that I'm working to get some new images on this little blog. The recent goings on with publishers, etc. haven't gone to my head! ha! It's hard to get time during the holiday season for my artwork, between family time and my nutty day job.

The next image has quite a few characters that have been challenges. Lately much of my work here has worked out surprisingly easy, so this is where things even out I suppose.

Stay tuned, something will appear soon.

And also, Happy New Year!! (although I have to be at work at my usual 5 a.m., so I doubt if I make it til midnight).

So Many Books, So Little Time...

I made this one for my wonderful agent Sorche Fairbank, to send as a calender image to her clients in the book publishing world. [She's the very agent who helped me pick a publisher for my book, haven't you heard that news already? If not, read my previous post, hehe.]

Anyway, I had grand plans to make a special holiday image for this little blog, but the real world (my real job), has gotten the better of me the last few days. The picture here has a lot of red and green in it, so it's got that little bit of a Christmas feel, I guess. Also, there isn't anyone being shot or whatever here, so it's kinda of a cheery image. I know! For the sake of this time of year, let's call it "Reading Christmas Lists". Er, no, let's call it, "Have You Been a Good Little Book This Year?". Yeah, that's it!

Bent Objects Book is on its way!

I've been given permission to say which publisher we've chosen to go with (for the job of getting a Bent Objects Book out there in the world!) We decided to go with Running Press (part of the Perseus Book Group). I'm excited to be with the same publisher as Don Martin and Marvel!

The date that my book actually hits the shelves is still to be determined, but I've had so many curious emails asking about it, I thought I'd share the news!

Contest Winner

Wow, that was tough to try and pick a winner. I mean really tough.

In the end, I went with Ashs' limerick-

safety pin scorpion knows
how poisoning people should go
but because of his size
he had to get wise
so now he just goes for their toes!

Thanks to all who participated!

I'm still without a computer, but I'll try and find a way to post something new Wednesday.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

[edit--I'm holding this contest right now because I have no computer! That's right, I'm at the local library typing this! I had to take my p.c. in because of some problems and to get it suped-up a bit. I am still working on some really decent objects to photograph though, so be patient!]
