Wow- sorry for the delayed posts. Trying to get a bunch of deadlines done before the holidays, which unfortunately I can't show just yet. So for now, I'll just post some thing lying around and catch up the last few weeks.

The first thing I wanted to mention was how amazing lluXcon2 was. And yes...if you click on that link you will see IlluXcon 3 is already in the works. If you would like to attend, think about it now, because tickets are very limited. It was designed to be kept intimate and small, and they are sticking by that.
The Wilshires (responsible for IlluXcon) have also released a very cool book called Visions of Never
It covers art from very awesome, but slightly under the radar artists like Rohb Ruppel , Marc Fishman and Mark Zug (among others) . I think I've seen it at really good prices too, so check it out if you are into that sorta thing.

I'll include some photos of my booth at IlluXcon. Not to show off my scruffy mug, but some of you might be interested in seeing how some of my originals look.

I grabbed these off various forums. websites, so thanks to those who took these pics!

And although I look sad, I was just sketching and practicing my inks. Those inks are hard!! Here's one of the more successful ones that day:

Lastly, I stumbled across this image on my older HD the other day and thought it might be fun to share:

I guess you can say this is a variant version I did for myself while I did this card art for Magic: The Gathering / WoTC a few years ago. The image I did for them was this
I think I was just messing around at the time and made a version without all the flames. It's a little rough and unfinished, but it may be worth a gander.

Last bit -some of you have inquired about prints and such. Well there is good news. I am in the discussion phase of getting a webstore! No seriously- -I really am . It's only been 5 years of procrastination but I think it is safe to say in 2010 I will finally have a place where prints and art will be easy to purchase. If there are any suggestions of what you would like to see, I'd love to hear them. That goes for any images you would like to see available as prints too.

Well done mate

Scott Daly said...

Timely post Scott ;). I'm stoked to check out this web store of yours, let me know how it goes because eventually I'm going to try to open up my own. You'll probably be hearing from me in the coming weeks.

Jon- haha- thanks my friend:) I like to keep this monstrous face hidden as much as possible. ;)

Scott - Hey man! It will be a bit before it's up and running but yeah ..of course feel free to contact me any time with any questions. I'll do my best :)

Nigel - Thanks amigo ..I do like working big..and I wish I had the time and space to work even bigger. I plan to rectify that soon though!

Jeffrey - Yeah is a really great event. As you probably know..just being an artist and working alone so much of the time it is really great to get out and talk to other artists. It's pretty inspiring!

Eric Braddock said...

SO wish I could've made it there this year. I'll have to make sure I get out there next time ;)

Your spot looks great, man! Even though in both pictures you look bored/preoccupied.. hehe.

hope all is going well lately, haven't talked to you in a while. The HD image is awesome, I dig both versions, the one you have without the flames is kind of nice in its own right, I enjoy the subtle glow of the red on the tip of his tail. Very awesome indeed.
