All good things...

With Christmas Day quickly approaching, I just wanted to say "Merry Christmas" to those who occassionally pop-in here to see what I'm doing. While I can't wait to put 2010 behind me, due to the trials of life and the numerous brick walls I've smacked hard against over the year, my brand new goals are to invest within; with family and my own personal projects, ie, going back to the drawing board and re-creating the Stanleyart Brand.

No one may get it, or buy it, but I'm just too stubborn to quit trying.

A little "t" on my shirt.

Here's this years t-shirt design I came up with for the Metropolis Chamber of Commerce to sell during the Metropolis Superman Celebration. Jose Garcia-Lopez's Style-Guide b/w line-art of Superman is always a treat to work with. He's amazing.

Ad Lid.

Why didn't they call him "Robert Fett"? Bobba Fett sounds almost a bit southern to me. And yes, I have known my share of "Bubbas."

6 Heads are better.

Here's the graying addition to my Empire Strikes Back sketch cards contributions. I'm amazed by the time I was willing to give to these little suckers while other freelance jobs have been banging on my drawing board screaming for my attention, with greater provision being offered. Stupid is as stupid does. I have this bad habit of  overcommitting, then retreating into the tunnel until a job is complete.
It's an ADD thing, it has to be.
The question is--will I do any more sketch card jobs outside of commission work?
Probably not.

I see a ship --in the Harbor, I see a ship!

It's the  Millenium Falcon! (And that other mean looking ship.)  And if you're Harrison Ford, it's pronounced "Fall-kunn".



And another round of colored sketch-cards for Topps. 

May Remorse be with me--always.

This round of cards has taken--a lonnng time to knock out. I actually think I enjoyed rendering them more when I had less production time. What an oxy-moron. Have more time, enjoy drawing them less.

Anyway, here are a few more Star Wars cards.

May the Force be with you, eternally.

The Few, the Proud, the Forced.


The Empire would strike me if they could.

With the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars upon us, I was inspired by the Force to draw even more little sketch cards. Why? Because Mikey's an idiot and so am I. :D Enjoy if you will. If not, make it soft rocks cast upon me. Take care--

May the Force be with you--always.

Right before Christmas, I emailed Cat Staggs about connecting with the Topps editor affiliated with Star Wars Sketch Cards. As design would have it, I was able to make contact, thank you, Cat, and acquire my first Topps/Sketch card gig. The job is now complete, 106 grayscale marker rendered cards in 14 very short (long) days. Overall I was rushed, and most of the card reflect it, but the exercise was very positive. Since completing the job I feel re-energized to get back to some long dormant projects and completing them. But most of all, I look forward to working @ my craft diligently in 2010. Be sure to pop back in soon to see the mess I've made. Stay Chuned---s-
