Rocket Ship Battlefish
































The Battlefish is finished! Garish, old-timey colors and a heavy weathering job...this was a big project, but I'm happy with how it turned out. I see my Blogger settings are still wonky, and my attempts to fix the layout have not yielded desired results. Arggh.

Work Posters










First off, I have no idea what the hell is going on with my blogger settings. I changed NOTHING and now my images are being dumped into the post at random. Anyway, these are a handful of posters I did for my work (I'm a librarian who will take the occasion to produce artwork in my sparetime...but when the opportunity presents itself to merge the two, I will do so without hesitation). I really enjoyed working on these...the booksale ones were my attempt at capturing a lurid pulp style, whereas the northern critters are for a winter reading program promotion. I'm sure that there are a lot of issues with these from a technical point of view, but when someone is okay with paying me to paint pictures, I'm not going to turn them down.

Rocket Ship Update
















Slooow progress on the rocket ship. The rivets took me well over a month, and the interior was just as tedious. Being able to work on this in slivers of time has actually really made me appreciate detailing...it's not a bad thing to have to slow down. The design is really blocky for this, but I'm kind of going for a cross breed of Apollo command module with Flash Gordon and steampunk aesthetic thrown into the mix. I used the same design for the main hatch that I used on my AT-AT model...I love this hatch. More to come (hopefully) soon.
