Merry Christmas

Outside of Hallowe'en, this is my favorite time of year. I spend the other eleven months of the year dreaming, planning, and longing for the Yuletide season.

I hope your Twelve Days of Christmas are magical.

For Clay

Clay watches us day and night.
He chases dreams that may send fright.
And when he broke the bonds of Earth,
God sent him to the place of Birth.

Fairies high and fairies low,
Watch the spirit of Clay go
Beyond the seas of magic and light
To the shores of justice and right.

Clay has taken warrior form
And comforts those who are forlorn.
Clay watches us day and night.
His day has come, his warrior might.

On Being Stuck

Ruts are something I often fall into. I think I actually aim for them. I like the thrill of crawling out and the depression of seeing myself in one; yes, I like ruts.

Having said that, it's time to crawl out of another one. High time.

Time to get busy, embrace the Holidays, and enjoy my life and my friends.

I'm going through a "blue" period in more ways than one. It's a good thing I love that color. More soon...

On Heroes, Gods, and Fairies

With the help of my dear friend Michael, I've endeavoured to start a project that will create a series of new comic covers.

Ranging from Oberon, king of the fairies, to a villain named Circus.

The last several months have been a blur of mood swings and staring at art supplies. That has changed in the past few week. I'm not sure if it's a combination of new medicines, getting more sleep, swimming, eating better, growing new friendships, or a mixture of all of the above. I just know that everything feels on track once again.

I'm beginning this series with Oberon and a Native American spirit guide I'm calling Black Hawk. Other characters are gods and other interesting fellows.

I couldn't have done this without Michael's willingness to pose for me and our mutual love of comics.

This is going to be exciting for both of us.

There are times for silence. This is one of those times. I have nothing to say outwardly; only conversations with myself.

Reflection hasn't always been easy for me but now is the time for that.

I need alone time. Silent time. I need a cabin in the woods.

I need to hear my own thoughts and write them down. Draw them out.

I need retreat.

I need silence.

I'm fascinated by all things Japanese. This will not surprise those that know me well. Anime, music, novels, manga, food...I could go on and on.

Lately, my art has taken a turn toward Japan. I'm loving the melding of my mixed-media-hodgepodged-slightly-quilty art with a more Japanese flair. This has led me to relearn many basic drawing skills using the techniques used my manga artists.

I can't wait to show off the results.
