Spent a good chunk of yesterday transferring files from my virtual machine to my shiny new…err…non-virtual machine. Along the way I found a couple of things that either never got posted or which I’d completely forgotten about, which is almost as good! (You ever do a painting that  you have absolutely no memory of having done? Like, your name is on it and sure, that’s your signature, but you don’t remember having done it or that it existed at all?)

Anyway!

I actually just did this one, trying to work the kinks out of the scratchboard tool so that it would (*@#*&(*@!! behave....

Did this one for my buddy Mur’s April Fool’s joke last year…

The best bit was that she got Lore Sjoberg to do jacket quotes. "This is a...book."

She said that Larry looked like an earthworm. I sent her an extreme close-up of a tapeworm. She retracted the statement and told me to never, ever, ever do that again.

 

Random doodle of a pigeon with goggles for every occasion.
This was my contribution to the 10th anniversary of Midwest Furfest, which was used on the T-shirt designs.
Card for "Black Sheep" a Reinier Knizia game from Final Flight. I think I can probably post this, it's been out for like four years now.
Pig card from "Black Sheep."
White Sheep card from "Black Sheep."
I built a little shrine to St. Frizzle, but was never happy enough with it to finish.
Had an idea...lord, must be five years ago now...for a comic with a squirrel druid. It got sidetracked by a parasitic wasp that laid eggs in people's nightmares and an insane antlered doe, but I remain hopeful that someday something will gel out of all that. Meanwhile, I did a bunch of doodles....
My agent tells me that the saga of Walrus and Radish may have to wait until I am sufficiently famous that editors are willing to take some seriously weird chances on a possibly delusional walrus. I cannot say that she is wrong. I am not sure if that kind of fame is in my future.

    Yay, art!

    That is all. The pigeon is especially awesome, and what a shame about St. Frizzle’s shrine.

      I love all your art, as you know, but I must raise my voice in hope and passion that you somehow find the time to do at least one finished piece of the Squirrel Druid. Please?

      I, and my coven named Ratatosk, would love it, I would certainly buy a print (or 2 or 3 so we could all have one) and I’d have to beat back my credit-card wielding hand to keep from buying the original. And if you made a comic of it I would donate! Your comics are incredible, and this would tickle my fancy so damn hard…!

      Hmm… hope that didn’t go a step too far đŸ˜‰

      Anyway, overall, it sounds like things are going well for you. I look forward to seeing you at FurCon if you’ll be there, and maybe between now and then we can arrange a little Boneclaw tat action as we’ve bandied about before. I love the painting of her but it’s a bit too rich for a tat for me.

      Thanks again for all the lovely work you’ve shared (and done for me) over the years. Here’s to much and many more!

      Light and laughter,
      Gareth the SongCoyote
