The day has come.

Hi all. I'm here to let you know that I will be retiring this blog. Fear not though, I have migrated old posts over to my new blog, SketchesOSkye. Its basically an evolution of this blog.

Why this change? Well, I had neglected to change over my blog to the new blogger system and after a while I was unable to edit or delete old posts, edit my blog layout or do anything other than post new entries. Starting a new site seems like the best way to overcome these issues.

So if you are interested in continuing to follow my posts, please hop over to the new blog. After a few months, I will be taking this blog offline, or - if it can be done - have this URL link directly to the new blog.

Upcoming James Jean exhibition, 2015.11.7 Sat - 24 Tue. Nakano Broadway.

Another Exhibition I am looking forward to. I've been following James Jean since he exploded on the comics scene, Even though he now focuses on painting, I'm still loving the work he puts out. Link to the Exhibition.

Greg Broadmore event, 17th Oct. Akihabara.

I briefly met Greg a few years back at San Diego Comic Con and am looking forward to meeting him again this week. A truly talented guy I'm looking forward to learning more from. If you are in Japan, definitely go and check him out;

Glenn Vilppu visits Tokyo

Last week I was lucky enough to spend two days with a real Master of Masters, Glenn Vilppu teaches professionals at Disney and Dreamworks amongst other places. He set down a set of 'tools' we can use (in what he calls the software of the mind) to draw figures in the manner that the Renaissance Masters were thought to have.

Here are a few of my sketches from what I have to say was an extremely invigorating and inspiring lecture session;

Although late in posting this, I am extremely proud to be the recipient of a Gold Ledger award for my work on Vowels in 2008. This is to say the least a HUGE honor. Vowels is the book which brought Wolf and I together to form our company; Gestalt Publishing.

More recently Vowels was reviewed on the Capsule Computers website scoring a smile inducing 10 out of 10. Some sample comic pages can be found here.

UPDATE - Some pictures of the event (Which I was unable to attend). Other Gestalt books I assisted on - Changing Ways and Flinch also took home awards. Very happy about this;
