Evermore, A Tale of the Stars

I have been working on this story for a long time, with several breaks for various reasons. I was hoping to be able to "publish" with a webcomic type format, but I do not think I have the time, right now, to present it in that fashion (I have a lot to learn). So, I have decided to start posting the story on this blog. When I add a page, I will have a link to this page so that new readers can start at the beginning.
I am not making a commitment to posting with any particular regularity. The main objective is, getting the story visible. I do have a first draft, and a completed storyboard, so the story is finished. I'm just going to see how it goes...

APU Nordic Ski Center's Annual Celebration and Auction

It's that time of year again! APU Nordic Center's Annual Celebration and Auction is Friday, May 8th! Here's the information about the event.
As I did for the previous 2 auctions, I will update my blog, and artist facebook page with the progress of the drawing.
Here is one of the quick sketches I did for my drawing.
In case you missed them, here are photos of the other drawings (colored pencil and ink) I made for the 2013 and 2014 auctions.

I'm sure I've mentioned this before on my blog, I do not have a very good camera. So, the colors in the pictures are not absolutely accurate, either is the focus.

May 2014


May 2013

As always, thank you for checking my blog.

This is one of my favorite projects, skiing and art, what's not to love!

and her friend, Dash the porcelain kitten.

I've been working...

on a lot of stuff. First, I am working on adding stories directly to my website. This means, I'm learning how to make my own pages, so I can update them myself. Here's a screenshot of the page setup so far. I am using a layout inspired by webcomic layouts that I like.
Remember, this is a first "draft", and, as you can see, I've got a lot more work to do on the page setup (centering everything comes to mind!). The story itself is completely done, so once the webpage is set up and working, all I have to do is add the rest of the pages!

And, I am also working on the next story, which will be much longer. Here's a detail of one of the picture's for this story.
Last, I have also been "just" writing. I picked up a story I started several years ago, started writing, and am going to see where it takes me, or more accurately, where the story takes the charaters. That means, sitting at my upstairs desk and writing in a notebook (not on the computer).

I have to thank the book, "On Writing", by Stephen King, for getting me back to that! "Read and write, read and write, read and write"! I highly recommend the book too. It was entertaining, informative, sad, very funny at times, and totally interesting!

My only complaint, too bad Mr. King does not illustrate also. (Maybe he does, but doesn't publish it??!! - I have no idea!)

I have modified his advice to make my own motto:

"Read, write, draw, read, write, draw, read, write, draw".

In that spirit, here's a digital picture I did that goes with the resurrected idea I've been working on this week. No, I couldn't completely leave drawing alone. I do not know how to do that.

Thanks for checking my blog!

Happy New Year!

It is the start of a new year, and I'm trying to remember what I was working on before the holidays arrived. As I am not sure, I have been playing with my new toys; a new computer and drawing tablet!

Here are a few things I've done so far. Yesterday the full moon at 6:00am looked pretty great, but my camera is still broken. I drew a digital sketch of it, over the hill in our back yard. I did add a few things... or at the very least one "thing"...
Here he is, under the full moon.
I also worked on a perspective sketch,
and this is the first sketch I did on my new computer!
Now it's time to get back to work.
Thanks for checking my blog!
