Jeffrey Catherine Jones…Creative Spirit, Artistic Soul

We interrupt the irregularly-scheduled blog to talk about the passing of the physical form of a great spirit. Of course, I mean Jeffrey Catherine Jones. Or as fans of my generation knew her (him), Jeff Jones. I believe it’s public knowledge by now that Jeff was a man who transformed into a woman later in life. I’ll leave the specifics and lurid details to the Rich Johnstons of the world, but that’s all I need…

Theeing Thor Didn’t Make Me Thore

This is not going to be like your typical movie reviews. First, NO SPOILERS. If you haven’t yet seen the flick, I won’t spoil it for ya. I really hate when reviewers/critics do that. The main purpose of a review is to help a reader decide if the movie is worth seeing, not whether the reviewer is “right” or “wrong.” That’s secondary. Second, I’m going to tell you where I’m coming from. I realize most…

“Soul Food For Thought” or “Can Commercial Art Be Fine?”

I recently came across a discussion on LinkedIn titled, “I have no choice as to whether or not I should create. It is essential to my being. The difference between Fine Art and commercial art is whether or not the artists has put their soul into a piece.” Very thought provoking, pithy and powerful. What struck me first (other than the singular/plural typo and the pretentious capitalization) is the degree to which I agreed with…

Life Of A True Creator

Back again! First, I want to say THANK YOU (bold, in all caps, yet!) to everyone who bid on our recent art auction for Japanese Tsunami Relief. It really meant a lot to me (and everyone else) and I hope you all enjoy the art you won. I think winning it for a good cause just makes it that much more desirable and special. Then again, I’m biased because I bid on and won a…

New Stuff: Part 4 of a Few

Okay! I’ve actually been busy with drawing stuff for a change. (Though I also entered my first official screenplay competition. Nothing to write Hollywood about as it was specifically a one-page screenplay contest, and because of the deadline I only had time to type up an old Polish joke. But it’s a start.) While I work on a huge Jack Kirby-lawsuit post, I figured I should return to art and show what I’ve been up…

So How Was YOUR Decade?

Well, technically it’s (barely) still January as I write this, so consider it my New Year’s resolution piece. I resolve to do more of these things than I did last year! Or at least if not in quantity, in quality. (I guess I could do a couple a week with just a few sentences, like telling dumb jokes, but wouldn’t that be cheating? You’ve come to expect a certain level of good crap and darn it,…

A Year of Thanks

Every morning for the last couple years, I have written down three things for which I’m thankful. I keep a pad and pen next to the bed and write them immediately upon waking, so I begin the day in a grateful mood. They can range from the specific and self-focused (finding a great deal on comics at a garage sale) to the general and altruistic (rain for farmers after a drought), from the physical (a…

New Stuff part 3 of a Few

Been awhile…Sometimes life and blogs do not mix well. How ya been? Hey, is that a new shirt? Did you get a haircut? Looks good. Thanks for checking out last month’s Zombified LAST KISS artwork. The offer still stands for anyone else who would like their favorite character zombified! (Zombies aren’t just for Halloween anymore…They make great Christmas gifts too!) Anyway, here’s more of what I been working’ on lately:
