So Many Projects, So Little Time

My plan: 2 panels a week for the You Germ series…

At some point, there will be a dedicated blog to what this series is all about, where I’ll explain it a lot more. The main reason why is I want to establish all of the rules visually before I put it into text. It should be soon, though.

I wish I could do more a week, but it can take up to 20 hours per work in this series. I probably could do more in a week, but only when I don’t have any other projects in the frying pan… which I do.
So, let’s look at what’s upcoming in that skillet:

Don’t hate my camera, because I already do.
Detail of new work that is in progress for “Linearity”.

“Linearity”A group show curated by Kelly McKernan at MINT Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia from June 9th-31st.I will be submitting two pieces.

Character Studies for illustrating, “Letters”.

“Letters”I’m illustrating (in comic form) a fantastic short story written by a very talented friend of mine. When “Linearity” is done and I have more work finished, I’ll share who he is and get a better teaser out to you.

“Unfinished Paintings”I’ve got several in mid-stage and I’m waiting for the right mood to hit where I can finish them as quickly as possible, hopefully giving just a day for each piece…which, unfortunately, means I have to wait for the right time and mood (boy, do I hate admitting that that’s important – my mood – but it simply is). This is mentioned last because it’s what I’m going to do when the above projects are done. I estimate mid-summer finishes.
