Fragmentary and chaotic: posts from the Abyss

Well, it’s been a while since I have published a new blog post.

I have been re-thinking my entire approach to the dissemination of my work and my focus has mostly shifted to more efficient methods of social media broadcasting, such as Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter. While Blogger has developed a mobile-device friendly app it is still not nearly as expedient as those others. I have actually enjoyed taking the time to sit and write something for my blog in the past, but increasingly I spend very little time at my desktop outside of email communication and art making. I have two growing boys, and running a household, while also managing a flourishing art practice, is proving to be quite demanding on my time.

However, I do have designs for continuing the blog. I’m just not certain in what capacity. I think I may try to convert it to a place for more lengthy essays. And, probably more excitingly, into a place to publish my comics work before it is printed. That will require some research and strategy however. I have seen a few people use Blogger as a vehicle for web-comics, but I am not certain it is particularly suited to it.

Anyway, I have been working on quite a number of projects lately. I recently completed the inks on a 131 page tome titled “Severed Limbs.” The next few months will involve scanning, digital edits, coloring, and shopping around for potential publishers. If I cannot find a publisher willing to take a risk on a relatively unknown creator I will publish it myself as I did with “The Moth or the Flame.”

I am also hoping the weather warms up soon, so that I can get back to work on a massive mural I started last year entitled “Mysteries Rising: a surreal adventure through our neighborhood.”

I have several chldren’s books in the works, another mural, a comics anthology, some video and music stuff, and more. Besides that I have been working on preliminary stories, character development, and plot outlines for a collaborative animation project with my buddy Brantley. For now the details of that will remain undisclosed, but suffice it to say that things are quite busy here in the studio of Sunrays Disincorporated Omninational.

More one day.
