Something Wicked this way Comes...............

Hello Friends. First I would like to say Hello to all the new readers. I'm really glad you stop by and check out the art. I would love to hear any one's comments. Input from the people who like my art helps me improve and do more works that you may want to see.
Above is "Something Wicked this way Comes......" It was inspired by a old metal band called Nuclear Assault. The painting will be the cover of the forthcoming book "Darc Karnivale" published by the Evil Nerd Empire later this summer. To the right you will a link to their site. You may be able to pre-order. The book will have 16 interior paintings by yours truly and the cover above. I am thinking that I will be selling prints of each painting, as well as Portfolio sets to include 4 prints each, and probably other types of things as well, like a calender, t-shirts, ect.
I really see great things for the Evil Nerd Empire. The writers are all awesome, the cream of the crop as the saying goes. I love getting done with an Illustration, just so I can read the next story I am going to do.
On a personal level, I am going through a series of changes in my life again. All good, but sometimes the road can be rough and I have to teach myself patience over and over. At least I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and that keeps me going. By the end of the month I should be moving into my own house, so that is major cool. I am soooooooooo wanting to do some work in oils again, and right now, all my studio stuff is still in storage. All the work I've been doing these last few months has been digital. I use Corel Painter, and I love the program, but there's no feeling in the world to an artist like Painting with oil. Just the smell of the oils alone makes my happy.
Once I do have my studio set back up, I am going to doing some portrait work. I want to paint Cheryl's children, Andriana and Luke for her. I enjoy doing portraits and need to build a portfolio of them to get some local work. I'll probably do a painting of her as well. She doesn't know it yet, but I will probably get her to model for some Illustrations as well. The Kids too.
I know this sounds scary, but I am thinking about doing some "cute" work as well. It would be good for my Fantasy portfolio. You know, stuff like Unicorns and Fairies. I know, I know, I'll probably melt or something trying to do light work. But I could do Dark Cute. Hey that might work. A black unicorn instead of a white one. lol
Well, I got to get. I hope you all have a wonderful week. Peace and Blessings.
