  1. Webcomic Round-up

    Greetings, all!

    Let me preface this by stating quite clearly that I am not, in any way, receiving any kind of compensation or incentives for discussing these webcomics. In fact, as far as I know, the creators, artists, colorists and anyone associated these comics have no idea that I’m even doing this.

    Just wanted to be clear on that.

    There are a lot of webcomics available out there on the ‘net, literally in the thousands, so I thought I’d take a moment to pass ...

  2. Something old something new!

    by , 09-03-2010 at 04:43 AM (Exiles Painting (one mans fight against the lead mountain))
    I had a fanastic weekend, the sun was out and my wife often says I am solar powered. I took Liz and the dogs out on Sunday and we had a blast. Back home I have been going back to my roots 1/35th. I am hoping to pair up with my local Model shop owner Paul to produce a Diorama for this years Euromilitaire, to which end Paul gave me some figures to practice on, you see the style is different that we are used to much less contrast and the blending has to be super smooth and no bright highlights. ...

  3. Restrained spending success(ish)!

    So I did good. I wanted nothing more than to order from Scibor the Uglyn Lovelord mini as soon as I saw it. But I made a vow to NOT order any more mini's until I got money from mini's. Well, took about a week but today I got paid from a commission prject and off I went! Might not sound like much, but waiting a week for me is a big deal. When it comes to patience all time in my world needs to be calculated in dog years. That week to me was 7 weeks to most people! That's nearly two months I ...

  4. Curbing the spending.

    Okay, so I am making a deal with myself. I am not going to buy any more mini's with any money NOT earned from painting. That means that I swear from now until the end of this year to only spend cash I earn from eBay, or selling old mini's, or whatever. Maybe the odd commission.

    This is doable. I just have to keep some focus. I'm happy that the stuff I put on eBay seems to always sell. Not neccessarily for bags of cash or anything, but it should be at least enough to keep me ...

  5. Oh, the stories!

    Greetings, all!

    After some of my work was published in Wyrd Chronicles and the Malifaux rule book, several people asked me if I was working on anything else in regards to writing. The answer was, as usual, “Well, I certainly have ideas for stories.”

    There are stories and ideas that have been fermenting in my grey matter for almost 20 years. I could undoubtedly go on at great length about where they came from and why they haven’t really seen the light of day yet, but I don’t ...
