So…this is different. I’ve gotten so used to writing my thoughts in short-form via Twitter that it’s gonna take me a second to get used to long-form blogging again.
Anyway, welcome to my new site. It’s sorta my first “real” website. After ten years of duct taped and crazy glued-together websites, blogs and MySpace pages, I just felt like it was time to streamline my online presence and upgrade my storefront.
There’s a decent amount of original artwork in the Store, with plenty more to come. I’ll gradually be uploading original art from past issues of CHEW, along with other projects I’ve had the pleasure of working on. Lotta covers, sketches and whatnot that I think you’ll enjoy. It’s also a personal goal to upload daily sketches that’ll be available in the Store, too, so keep your eyes peeled. I’ll also be taking commissions from time to time, so I’ll post details later.
But aside from creating a better avenue for fans to get my art, I just needed a new outlet for whatever’s going on in my head. Social media can be fun, but it can also be a gigantic distraction, so it was time I made a change. And I’ll fully admit to being a bit of a Twitter addict from time to time (usually whenever Zack Snyder makes a movie), so I’m trying to redirect my energy into more productive, fun projects.
So keep checking in. I’ll be shooting new updates to the site through the usual channels (Twitter, Tumblr, etc…), so expect some peeks at what I’m working on soon.
