Fox Dancing

Happy Thursday everyone. Here's a lovely piece commissioned by Christian l. Christian gave me a lot of freedom to design this piece as I liked, which is always a lot of fun. Thanks, Christian!

A bit of Tuesday Catch up

As Origins and Anthrocon draw close, I find myself very busy with preparations. Still, there's time this week to do at least some blogging. Here is one of several pieces that I am doing for Amy T. The series all involve her Dragon Storm characters and most will be published as DS cards. I like the character interplay in this one. Thanks again Amy!

Ran-Qui Part 2

After losing my Pogo Stylus--a thing I've done twice before, alas--I recently acquired a new one. It is a slimmer version of the Stylus with a nice pen clip that will hopefully allow me to keep it firmly attached to my Iphone. Of course, after it arrived I had to give it a test run, so I decided to color this commission of Ran-Qui, which I featured a few posts ago. I had photographed the original black and white drawing with my phone; it was a simple matter to import the photo into my painting app and go to town. The colors were done entirely on my Iphone and I am pleased with how it came out.

In Memory of Kelly Jones

I have received sad news. Kelly Jones, long time sf fan and former Michigan resident, passed away late last week. Kelly was a friend and a patron. I will miss her good humor and sharp wit and I doubt I will be the only one.

In addition to being a great fan, Kelly loved animals. Donations to the Humane Society made in Kelly's name would be an appropriate way to honor her memory, in the opinion of her close friends.

For Michigan fans who want to go Kelly's funeral service, it will take place at the Schrader-Howell Funeral Home in downtown Plymouth Michigan on Friday June 5th, 2009. Viewing will begin at 10 am and the funeral will start at noon. Contact information for the funeral home is below.

But Wait There's More

Did I say that I was done with Comicon commissions? Well, I fibbed. Here is one more, posted because I really like it. This is Kat, a character commissioned by, and copyright by Seth Paul. I enjoyed the idea of this character; how could you not like a calico cat who smokes cigars?
