No Rest. For the Wicked.

I was approached to do a  cover illustration for the upcoming issue of Something Wicked Magazine, which has been resurrected as an online publication. The artwork accompanies a great short story The Treasons by AA Garrison featured inside. Well, the deadline was reached by the seat of the proverbial pants, although that tends to be the nature of the game, so here it is.

Do check it out and support the Mag, it's well worth a few bucks!

Good News, Bad News.

Well, the good news is that I just got back from an unbelievable trip through Botswana and got some neat photos to show you guys. The bad news is that upon getting home, I found we'd been robbed and my ancient-yet-hardy Graphire2 which I had been running into the ground for the past eight years had been accidentally stolen. Accidentally because the fuckers took my backpack to put the swag in(they always do) and my poor little Wacom happened to be in said bag. Well, after some mild deadline panic (Wacoms are not exaclty a common retail item in South Africa) I managed to procure a brand spanking new Intuos4 and things are looking up, because its freeing up my work a lot, so apparently all's well that ends well. So here's one of the first scribbles, very quick, but time's a-pressing, so there's real work to be done! 

But stay tuned, I'll be sharing some good shots with you guys soon enough.
