“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

So..How was everyone's holiday? Good, I hope.

My Christmas and New Years was spent working away until all hours of the night and early morning. Hooraay! I've been so busy, in fact, that I've managed to neglect this little blog of mine since I got back from Lucca, Italy of 2011 - evidence being the last uploaded image. 

I'm ashamed.

That said, I'm going to start updating again. But this time, considering I'm working on A LOT of different projects that won't allow much time for the extracurricular drawings I used to be able to do - which I then used to continuously update this blog - I will just upload videos of my projects' drawings as I finish them. Make sense? A panel here, a section of a page there - anything to put up new content. (*Note to my Editors: I'm not gonna spoil your books. I swear.)

Be forewarned: There will not be any fancy-schmancy editing in these upcoming videos - just whatever iMovie and time will allow. The most complicated will probably be like the footage above, which has been heavily time-lapsed so's I don't bore the sh*t out of you with 13:00+ minutes of real time drawing. That, and also to keep you from hearing my near-perfect rendition of Celine Dion's 'MY HEART WILL GO ON' as I sang it while I drew that panel.

Yeah, I said it: Near-perfect.
