Hot Rods and Bulletholes.

Okay, this is something new for me - I'm no Luddite, but when it comes to video I'm waaay behind the curve. Anyhow, with a little advice from my friend Das, I figured out how to record video as I activated the various layers in a Photoshop file.

I wanted to give readers a sense of how some of my illustrations are put together, so this shows the layers being added, one by one from the bottom up:

Note that the video just features a small section of the piece. Here's the whole thing, for reference:

And yes, this one will be in my book, too.

An Update on the Book.

Hey folks, just a quick update - as of yesterday I've got 28 of the projected 30 illustrations done for the pin-up book. This has been a much more lengthy process than originally intended, but the final product oughta be worth the wait. And it's definitely been a good experience for me - not exactly a huge sacrifice to spend a year drawing women, after all.

Anyhow, I've got the final two pictures planned out (the last one will be a tattoo design), so hopefully I can get this thing off the ground before Christmas, and then everybody can buy a copy and I can retire to the French Riviera and drink champagne and eat caviar all day.

Oh, and here's the one I finished yesterday:

Mopar Madness.

Hey, folks. Been tweaking and updating a lot of my older art the past few days. Here's a couple I dug out of the archives from 2001 and 2002. In both cases the colour scheme in the top part of the image was the original, and the one in the bottom part is something new.

Anybody got a preference?

I suspect I'll spin off more variations as well. I'd really like to see flames on that Dart.

Well, the big day has finally arrived: I found a place online to sell prints of my art.

I've only got a few pieces up yet, but needless to say, there'll soon be lots more. Check it out here, if you're so inclined.
