Location: New England, United States

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!)

GOOD NEWS: THE UNIVERSE IS STILL HERE!

Apparently the Super Collider test was successful and we're all "okay". The "real" thing gets fired up in October apparently. There was alot of consternation and debate as to whether they'd create a black hole that would effectively suck the earth into itself over a period of years, literally a story right out of science fiction. See? We have devices now that are probing the secrets of the universe-we're living science fiction. How cool is that? The device was built on the border of Switzerland and France, largely by a Swiss and International team.

The US was supposed to build one but it was killed due to budget cuts. In a way it's a good thing.
I mean, think of a Swiss Banker or a Swiss Watch? And then, their US versions? Who ya gonna trust? I thought so.

Of course, I know black holes exist right here on earth, I didn't need the above experiment or multi-billion dollar device to convince me. I have one in my studio and I always am losing pencils, brushes and books into it....

In the meantime, I'm off to Cape Cod for a couple of days. They say a black hole, at the event horizon, slows time down. I need to slow time down myself and look at some beaches sans tourists.
