24527. If the X-Men became a Disney Feature…

…it might look like these incredible designs by Matthew Humphreys, an artist currently at Hasbro Studios. Click on image above to seen the full line up. Honestly, if it were up to me, I’d be developing at least one Marvel property as a Disney hand drawn film… Dr. Strange, Sub Mariner, The Silver Surfer…

24528. Faded

 

“Nine o clock… Dad comes home today!”
As he waited, he listened to the sound of thunder and watched as the raindrops landed and then  joined together in a trail that raced to the bottom of the window pane.  A year is a long time to wait!

All fear faded away when he saw his Dad, dressed in army green, spotted with the weather, open the front gate and smile as he ascended the stairs.

24529. Here’s Chris Ware being interviewed on a short arts...



Here’s Chris Ware being interviewed on a short arts program called Fear No Art. There are a few moments of awkwardness between the chipper host and the slightly less chipper cartoonist, but we get some great shots of Chris Ware’s studio and get to watch him ink a drawing.

24530. IF: faded


To be frank, the novelty of Clive jumping out of the wardrobe had well and truly faded.

Okay, I admit, a rather tenuous link today, but I've been working on monsters all week so I had to get one in somewhere!

Thanks for all the lovely comments last week x

24531. A Century Of Sleep

I have been meaning to make this drawing for a long time - it's an illustration for one of my favourite songs, "A Woman, a Woman, a Century of Sleep" by Emmy the Great.
Didn't ask for permission, pure fanart, this.

It very nearly didn't happen, I scribbled the rough in a sketchbook that I promptly lost - but I managed to find a blurry mobile phone shot of it, so here it is.

24542. Get those books out there

I’ve started book 2 in my Help! I’m Sensitive series and wouldn’t you know it, I’m learning the lessons and tools right away. Good thing to help others, a little uncomfortable for me.  I’m still such a nerd about all of this–I get super-excited about seeing the book going into the local library, etc. I like seeing my name printed on the book. That’s really fun considering since I was six years old I wanted to illustrate and write books, so there’s this deep satisfaction in me. Perhaps I should be more guru-like or “professional”, but that’s not my style. I can probably, then, rule out traveling all over the world with my “I will help you stop being sensitive now in 30 days” seminar with the infomercial.

I just ordered a bunch to put into local stores. A little scary, but fun.

I like the idea of providing real world examples in my book and real tools to apply it. It’s frustrating to me at least, when I read about the problem I’m having in a book and I’m left sitting there with it with nowhere to go. Or, if I am offered “spiritual” tools and lessons that I can’t really apply into my life in a practical, everyday life sense. That one seems to really push my buttons.

24544. Factory Man Illustration

Factory Guy
Here is an illustration I did for the 'Factory' theme. Though I did this as a concept covershot for a Flash Game I was building, it really fits this weeks challenge.

24546. One for the Murphys Book Launch!

I went to my good friend Lynda Mullaly Hunt’s “official” book launch in Glastonbury, CT last night, to celebrate her new book, One for the Murphys.

It was a GREAT turnout, and Lynda, in her usual Lynda-esque way, had the crowd riveted with snippets, stories, and her trademark irreverence. She is a one-of-a-kind public speaker, and I am in continuing awe of this skill!

I had read the ARC/preview copy of the book, but this was my first chance to see the real thing. Gorgeous! Nice spot-UV printing on the cover, and fancy end papers that relate beautifully to the content of the book. I’m pretty psyched to be in the acknowledgements section, too… what an honor!

Such an amazing crowd! It was fun to see so many folks who know Lynda from different stages of life come out to support her and the book.

Writer girls from RI: Mary Pierce, Laurie Smith Murphy, Lynda, and Me. It was a little bit of a drive, but we didn’t want to miss it… and I am so glad we went!

Now, get out there and check out this book- you’ll be glad you did.
Here’s my review of it on Goodreads.


Here’s Lynda’s book trailer. It will give you a good feel for the flavor of this lovely and thought-provoking book.

24549. I Miss Snow


Is there anything wrong with that? I realize that loving snow is probably politically incorrect...and I understand that by declaring my love for the cold I'm probably alienating myself from some of you. Just know that I won't judge you for hating the very thing that gets me going! I love the quite, the beauty it gives the landscape, the sound it makes under my feet as I hike, and the playground it provides.

I painted the penguin in Photoshop last night as I looked at the photos of melting snow I took yesterday. Only high level snow left for this year and it's getting harder to get to. I guess I'll have to wait for next year - score one for the snow haters -  but your days are numbered!

Below are a few of the photos I took this year on my daily hikes...
