As I mentioned previously, I’ve been using the free-time I have working on cover art for this sites updated design. The image is coming along, though slowly, but I’m enjoying the output. You can see a sample of it above. Working on the figures embroidered dress is a bit tedious, but the effect that happens when your eye blends everything together is pleasing to me. When finished, this piece will be one of possibly three to grace the homepage. Those will reside until I have new images, which at the rate I produce them should be a month or more. Anyway, the hope is to have a periodic cycling of new art on the homepage “cover”.
I’m also diligently working on another long piece in my “Ghost” series. This piece deals with the time I spent on the east coast schooling to be a L.A.V. mechanic. Each day I work on it, I find it lacking, and continue to flesh it out, working on description and place, beginning to add in bits of dialogue. I suppose that makes it fiction, but hell…is any memory that is 30 years old anything but? This piece feels more lifelike because of these efforts, though I’m not sure the content is interesting to anyone other than myself.
