Tap tap... *ahem* ... is there anyone still out there? You there, in the back! Quit sleeping!

I realize I've been absent for a bit from the blog, and art in general. I won't bore you with reasons and excuses, but I will say I'm hoping to fix that this year, and what better way than with a piece titled "Resolutions"?

My goal this year is simple: one finished piece a week, by each Friday. This will, if things go well, leave me with 52 finished pieces by this time next year. Not a bad little sum I'd say. I will be trying to follow along with the topics posted at Illustration Friday. That's where the idea came from for the piece above; the first Illustration Friday topic of the New Year.

If a topic stumps me, or just isn't something I'd care to illustrate, I'll complete a piece for what I'm calling "Fanart Fridays", where I'll pick a character I enjoy and render my interpretation of it. I'd like to showcase smaller books/comics/webcomics in these drawings, and maybe introduce people to works they may be missing.

Concurrent to all of this, I'll be working away on my first graphic novel. If work picks up on the graphic novel, perhaps I'll start replacing these finished art Fridays with finished comic pages or pinups, but let's start with baby steps first. My goal for this graphic novel will be to release it digitally: as a webcomic at the bare minimum, and perhaps as a digital release via iPad etc.. Which brings me to my next topic...

I've wrapped up both my Fablewood story, "The Spirits & The Woods", and my Popgun story, "The Last Voyage" as digital downloads. I've included both .pdf and .cbz formats, and their available for free in the comics section. I've tested them in both iBooks and ComicZeal (a great .cbz reader) on the iPad, and both seem to read just fine.
