    HELLO EVERYONE! It's been years, ACTUAL years, since I was last here. Amongst other things I've spent the last six months working on a kickstarter for an illustrated book which I've finally just launched, as well as a couple of pieces for an upcoming exhibition. I don't want to complete photodump on you all, so here are two to start with.

    The Golem

    Express yourself!

    @Krista: Those are some lovely inks. Beautifully done!

    @krista - love that first one, it's somewhat similar to a piece I did a while back. is that done with watercolor/ gouache?

    @Greasemonkey - Thank you! Although there are actually no inks involved these days. It's all pencil and watercolour only.

    @Imaginarypeople - I do see the resemblance! It's a nice theme, isn't it? That one is part of a triptych about an abandoned Steampunk city, inspired in part by the Victorian World's Fairs. It's entirely watercolour and pencil, but there are a few tiny bits of gouache in the highlights.
    Here's the full description: "Part guardian, part servant, the Golems stood watch over the city before it was abandoned. The blunt programming inside their heads led them to seek out other sentient life-forms, so many wandered off into forests. Without the attention and maintenance of humans, however, they are slowly ceasing to function, and their once gleaming bodies are gradually being reclaimed by nature."

    Well, in that case they're lovely watercolours.

    @krista - Lovely! I love me a good watercolor illustration. Good luck with your kickstarter. It seems to be doing well already.

    Something I did in Sculptris to pass the time (not that I have any spare time to pass but uhhhhhh...).

    Not dead, just immersed in projects for cool people. But here's a teaser for my next project, which is in fact underway, but a ways off. Hoping for 2015 on this one...

    Oldhat: Oh don't worry; there's bound to be a LOT of Whitechapel folks making cameos in this book. You got bartender for sure! : )

    Thanks for the welcome back!
    @Sizer: lovely work, as always. I often think about your sense of design when I'm planning compositions!
    @Neil: You comic work is looking really good. That last frame has an air of Sam Keith about it.
    @Dorkmuffin: Well, if you push me I guess I could post a few more...

    This one is for the same exhibition as the Golem above. It's called "the Oracle".

    Another one for Steam in the Willows, with Toad being a bit of a hipster.

    And this one was a Valentine's Day present for my partner, combining two of our loves: Superman and Bouguereau

    New Krista and Neil Ford art on the same page? We are spoiled.
    The new images looks so good, Krista, I really like the compositions and colors in all of them.
