I live. . .

IMG_1543I know, I know.  I haven’t posted in a while.  I promise I still live.  I’ve been eaten alive by my modern work life and haven’t really posted a lot of the projects I’ve been working on.  I did finish the painting that’s on the left for the Mews (it’s the cover art for the November Mews), and while the art is a bit more modern than medieval, I enjoyed working with watercolour and gouache.

I’ve also been participating in Inktober.  I know, when I started on this whole “NO NEW PROJECTS,” I promised myself no new projects until the old ones were done.  But Inktober has really helped shock the creative juices back into work.  I’ve been participating in two lists: one that’s SCA themed, and one that’s a bit more modern.  You can see the art on my instagram account.

One of the cool things I’ve tried in the last month was working with Lord Jon Chesey on sighting stars with his quadrant.  It’s a lot of fun, and it was a cool way to connect my modern love of the heavens with a counterpart who existed within SCA period.

This is a super quick post to let you know that I’m still here, and that I’m still plugging away.
