So much work to do to get this right!
I didn't even try to get a new page of Rueday done this weekend.
 I am still working on getting a final version of the book done! The first print sample was not so great, so not only have I been going over every page to be sure the colors are as clean as possible, but I decided to resize the whole thing to a larger format. This entails changing the aspect ratio of , like 150 pages, so I gotta add stuff and crop stuff to make the art fit.
 I signed up for an online kickstarter class, specifically for  launching comics. It is called "The comixlaunch course" and I highly recommend investing in this class if you are serious about marketing and funding your comic! It is actually a lot of fun, but comes with homework! My assignment  right now is to write an "elevator pitch" for the story...and I am stuck.
NOW I get writer's block??
  • Listening to: goldfish filter
  • Reading: My own book, looking for typos. I am bad at this
  • Drinking: coffeeeee.

I am a sculptor. I am a sculptor that draws comics.
For the past 35 years I've been busting my knuckles carving dragons, owls, wolves, cats, griffins and other creatures for Windstone Editions. My pieces have been sold in gift stores all over the world for more than 30 years now! windstoneeditions.com/
I am also a perpetual art student. There is still so much I need to learn! I love learning about animals and anatomy. I'm fascinated by every aspect of biology, zoology, and just about every other field of science... most of which is way over my head.
Finishing my comic series is the core passion that fills the bucket of my bucket list
One book of mine, "The Veligent" has been completed. I have been diligently working on the second book in the series, "Rueday", in the evenings, weekends and every other minute of time I can scrape loose: reptangle.deviantart.com/art/C…


Current Residence: on a farm in Oregon
Favourite genre of music: Anything but Frank Sinatra and "jazzed up" Christmas carols
Favourite photographer: Griffin Alberti
Favourite style of art: graphic novels, Golden age illustration, Pre-Raphaelite, Da-da, modern and conceptual
Operating System:minimally invasive.

Shell of choice: Nautilus, no, wait. everybody makes this joke..
Wallpaper of choice: Ones with koi
Skin of choice: Arctic fox
Favourite cartoon character: Zonker Harris, Pfirsich Rommel, Jaeger Ayers, Deacon mushrat
Personal Quote: Poor taste need not be poor quality.
