Punny bunny

After not trying this medium with any real intent for... oooooh, ten years, I decided to give lino prints another shot.

I had forgotten the crazy amount of time this stuff takes, or how easy it is to cut oneself while working on it, but between stabs I did manage the following piece:

8" x 6", approximately. And the title? "Hare, Standing on End". I promised a bad pun, and I delivered.

This print is available! I'll be doing a set of numbered originals, available with or without matting. You can purchase one by contacting me online, or... at next month's Bazaar of the Bizarre! But more on that later!

A long-overdue update with... ahhh, nerdy comics!

Oh dear! Poor, neglected sketch blog! I'm so sorry. I've treated you so badly. Um, have some chocolates. Also flowers. Oh dear, yes, these ARE from post-Valentine's Day clearance. I had hoped you wouldn't notice. I mean mind... Hoped you wouldn't mind...

If you think can stand another Phantom of the Opera piece, then please take a look at the following comic. If only for the art and nothing else? I spent about a month picking away (okay, slaving away) at this during my spare time, and am quite happy with how it all turned out. I think... it's actually my only multiple-panel full-colour comic so far. I've done greyscale a lot, yes, but... colour!

Anyhow, click to view properly:

Comic is here!

And let me know what you think. Oh, nerdery... But it seems to have blown up on deviantArt, where it has nearly 200 favourites, and about 1900 page views so far (and counting). Miiiiles more than anything else I've posted there.

More paintings to come soon as well -- and a couple of show announcements! Woooo!
