Exciting News and New Endeavors

Exciting News!


As you may have seen on my home page, I have joined up with Sanitarium Magazine ( http://sanitariummagazine.com/  ) - A digital horror magazine that includes horror art and short stories. My first contribution will be the use of one of my previously painted pieces for the cover of their upcoming issue and then from there I'll be doing a few more original covers as well as hopefully some interior art. Basically, as much as they want from me I am eager to give them. Their magazine is available on Amazon.com so be sure to check them out.


Here is their mention of it on the site - http://sanitariummagazine.com/new-look-sanitarium-magazine-hits-the-shelves-soon/


Secondly, I want to thank everyone who's purchased the book that I Illustrated and worked on with the very talented Justin Hamelin. The Darkest Corner has sold beyond our expectations and we are thrilled. Despite some hiccups and delays as well as some hard learned lessons, Justin and I are begining work on our next collaboration, which we will likely be self publishing this time. More on that soon as we hammer out details (Justin is hopefully writing as we speak)... Again, the support that's been shown to us for The Darkest Corner has been overwhelmingly positive and we cannot thank you all enough. 


Third(ly?), this is shaping up to be a super-busy personal year for myself and my family, with my Sister-In-Law's upcoming wedding as well as some other stuff that I am not at liberty to discuss at the moment (all good, so don't worry and NO, not a baby). That said, time for commissions is getting tighter and tighter. While I never want to turn anyone down I also always want to be able to offer the best work I can to those paying money for my art. So, moving forward I will be limiting my commissions, something I have never done and don't really like having to do but with the time I have right now I feel like I have to do it. SO... If you have something you want to commission me to do, let's talk! I have several things on the table at the moment and once those are done my full attention is going to personal things as well as my work with Justin and Sanitarium, as well as a few other collaborations that I'll tell you all about some other time once more of the details are sorted.


You can always email about custom work but please, please don't take it personally if I have to delay doing it or simply cannot make the time this year... I promise you it is nothing more than the classic "not enough hours in the day". If you have something that is time-sensitive I will always do my best to accomodate if I am able. 


With the abovementioned busy year, you may have noticed me missing from Monster Mania in Cherry Hill, NJ in March. My wife, who sells her jewelry there (it's good knowing one of your table neighbors) and I made the very hard decision after years of vending there to skip it this year (yes, sadly this means August as well). With a Disney trip earlier this year and a wedding as well as some other obligations, it was just too much to squeeze in. Trust me, we missed you all - vendor friends and show attendees alike. We hope to resume Monster Mania starting next march as well as potentially getting to some more shows, so add it to the list of stuff I'll keep you posted about. 


Enough blabbering from me now. Time to get back to work.


As always, I am humbled and thankful for all of the support you all offer me. I cannot express that enough. Thank you.

    Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to understand a lot about this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something. I think that you simply could do with a few p.c. to pressure the message home a little bit, however instead of that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I'll definitely be back.

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Many thanks

    It's really very complex in this active life to listen news on TV, thus I simply use world wide web for that reason, and get the latest information.

    Link exchange is nothing else however it is just placing the other person's webpage link on your page at proper place and other person will also do same in support of you.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
