I don't want to forget you by socar
I don't want to forget you
Starting off ‪#‎inktober‬ with a great big "BRAWWWWWWWK!", for all the lovely birds I used to feed, and am now not allowed to feed--thank you, landlord.  (2.5" x 2.5")
Dulcamara by socar
"Io già suppongo e immagino 
che al par di me sappiate 
ch'io sono quel gran medico, 
dottore enciclopedico 
chiamato Dulcamara, 
la cui virtù preclara 
e i portenti infiniti 
son noti all' altri siti!"
(Yeah.  Like THAT guy went to medical school.)

This is a picture of when you're out birding, and you’ve spotted an EXCELLENT BIRD, up in the sky, or in a tree above your head. You’re still walking, but you aren’t looking at your feet, any more, or paying any attention to your surroundings. You’re following that bird, with your head in the clouds, and the next thing you know, you’ve tripped over a crack in the pavement—or, in this case, wandered out of the frame of the picture you've been drawn into, and into somebody's vegetable garden.

This, of course, doesn't only happen to birders. It can happen to anybody who gets wrapped up in what they're doing, or in a daydream, and stumbles through life.

Or maybe it's just me, who behaves that way. Maybe everyone else will look at this picture, and go "what?" Well, that's fine, too.

Sparafucile mi nomino.... by socar
Sparafucile mi nomino....
Another scary opera bird, to go with creepy Papageno, from a couple of weeks ago.  About 1.7" x 8".

Ears! Ears! I have ears!
Small, not-pushy-at-all, reminder of where you can buy my work, should you feel so inclined: - Copies of "Horace Spiegelman Gets Made Redundant" are still available here, along with lots of lovely work by Agent Agnes. - Get your prints here...prints of many of my most recent pieces. As always, if there's something you want to see, which isn't there, tell me; I can probably put it there. (Birds of Lore prints will be available AFTER publication, though.)… - A few of my ORIGINALS are available here, AND there is a handy shopping cart thingy, so you don't even have to talk to me, in order to complete the transaction. - My own site, of course, also has originals for sale, and a wider selection. But it doesn't have a shopping cart, so you WILL have to e-mail me, if there's something you want. I take PayPal and Interac e-transfers. :-) - Prints of some of my older work can still be got, here.

There might be other stuff knocking about, that I've forgotten about--but this should suffice, for the blatant art-pushing.

Loving the book 'Fantasy Art Drawing Skills' in the bookstore.
I love your attention to the sketch book work, the underlying structural design and I see hints of a golden section being employed. Overall a magnificent book for young fantasy artists.
