Sorry for radio silence I have been busy either working or being ill. I got sick a few weeks ago and was in bed for a good week or so trying to shake it. Even now I'm still fighting some congestion and coughing fits.

Then the holiday season for retail started up and so I haven't had much time to post here due to work.

This is just a reminder that Foolish Mortal has a print store - while I haven't had a chance to update it; if there is anything that you've seen here on the blog or posted on the Deviant Art page that you would like to purchase feel free to drop me a line and we can probably work something out.

For the curious my con schedule right now is:

May 27-29th Comicpalooza in Houston
- I will have a table in the Artist Alley of this convention. I'll be in the back facing the concession stand. So if you are in the area drop by and say hello.

June 3-5 - SoonerCon in Oklahoma City - I'll be there with prints, buttons, jewelry and paintings. So come on by say hello, commission something, and poke me with a stick if I doze off.

That's all for the moment, I'll post if any changes occur.

Also for those of you who can't make these shows, I will be adding pieces to my Web Store after I recover from Sooner Con.

I've been working hard on being a productive member of society this week. I spent this week working on commission work, small paintings to sell next convention, and taking stock of buttons, and various convention supplies.

I also reorganized the button stock for conventions. In previous years the buttons were stored in a large gallon freezer bag and one had to dig around to find the buttons folks wanted. That was later upgraded to a couple of large gallon plastic bags holding various smaller plastic bags. The bags themselves were labeled and divided into categories, so we had one whole bag that contained all my comic related buttons and another that contained nothing but meta button jokes, etc. This system worked but not very well. This system has been retired and now we are trying something involving boxes with movable dividers and such. We shall see how this system works out.

I also retired some old print stock. I'll probably throw them on the store front when I get a chance since I have quite a few copies of these but no desire for them to be in the print book anymore. There's nothing WRONG with the pictures, the pieces however are old and I feel it's time to take them out.

Alright, now that that is aside onwards to the Art Post.





To kick things off, on a somber note, Diana Wynne Jones died last Sunday. She was an awesome author that is probably best known for writing Howl's Moving Castle. She also wrote the Chrestomanci series and various other books that wormed their way into my book shelf with out me knowing.

I decided to commemorate this by painting Howl. It's something I'd been wanting to do for a while, and it seemed the appropriate time to do it. I felt somewhat conflicted using Miyazaki's design for this but the design does pretty much sum Howl up very well and I couldn't figure out one better.

less rambling pictures here )

Also for those who are curious or care I posted an Influence Map over on Dev-art. I've been informed by folks who know me that it is very predictable and unsurprising. So I guess that means it's a fairly accurate portrait of my influences and head space.

Anyways that's all for this week, now for me to get back to my commission work.
