I am a Hugo award-winning fantasy/SF artist who works on both publishing projects and film concept work(such as Jimmy Neutron and most recently, The Ant Bully) but I have a passion for landscape work, small paintings and exploring the properties of paint. This blog will mostly showcase my "painting-for-the-day" as kind of a personal voyage. I'll also be inserting sketches,photos and ideas of projects I am working on, that I can, when I can, so look for those every so often(usually as paint is drying!)

More Dragons...

BUSY WEEK! I had to finish the final art to DRAGON DONE IT, a new anthology of magical mystery tales, edited by Mike Resnick and Eric Flint. ALot of fun. Kind of a Sam Spade character, with a girl who may not be a girl, a lurking demon and, of course, a dragon like it says in the title(it always has to relate to the title. This is one of my larger cover pieces(not a painting of the day!) but I had to finish it in record time so it could be sollicted by the publisher-for next year! I gave it this garish, pulp-style color scheme and look, really loud colors. The problem with short story books is always picking an image that best represents the overall book. And, a blonde babe is always good for selling a book. Lots of fun to paint, in oils. Things are going to slow down just a tad, which I am really looking forward to!
More small paintings soon. It's been two weeks of just going crazy with deadlines, and dentist appointments!

Hey, if she is a demon with a dragon on a lead, he'd never have to by a cigarette lighter

Thanks Annie.This was alot of fun, and a problem to solve too. I just did not know how to go about it, and sum up all the stories. I give credit to Mike Resnick for the idea, but I ran with it from there...
