For anybody who is in Seattle:  please stop by Krab Jab Studio, on the 12th of December, to see the opening of my show, "Bird Life!".  (Not to worry, if you can't make the opening:  the show will be there till January 2.)

Seriously, if you're into birds, go to this...there are nearly 40 pictures of birds, which I birdy.  So birdy.

Lady Macbeth by socar
Lady Macbeth

"Di sangue umano sa qui sempre.
Arabia intera rimondar sì piccol mano 
Co' suoi balsami non può."

Or, if I remember Shakespeare's version correctly, "Here’s the smell of the blood still; all the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand."

Can't remember who told me to turn Lady Macbeth into a creepy opera bird, but if you're out there, thanks; I liked drawing her. I used a Luzon bleeding heart dove, for her, though in retrospect, a robin should've been a better fit for the Scottish, or in this case, the Scottish opera.

A good goal for me, I think, is to learn how to letter properly.

Niggles and Mr. Nobody Fade Away by socar
Niggles and Mr. Nobody Fade Away
Niggles and Mr. Nobody were my childhood imaginary friends. Niggles is the two-headed bird; Mr. Nobody is the irritated-looking man in the crown. He is angry because I grew up and forgot him, and now, he is almost gone. Niggles faces the same fate, but because he's only a bird, he doesn't have to know about it.

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.

I just finished your book Fantasy Art Drawing Skills, and I've turned around and started reading it again. I learned so much more from your book then from years of scrounging around on the internet! Very very good read, thank you so much for writing it. (The Raddish Fairy is my favorite.)

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.
