Some future plans

It is two weeks into the new year and I really have been thinking about what I want to do with my life and where I would like to be by the end of the year. So I have come up with a couple of things that I know God is going to show me favor in.

First, I am starting a new Christian studio called "Alpha Dog Studios". It will have several Christians artist in it that I have already contacted and I am hoping to pull in a couple more talented guys or girls.

Second, I want to start my own imprint and publishing company. This is something that I have wanted to do forever and I know God is going to allow me to do this now. The name for the company will be "Alpha Dog Media".

Thirdly, my art. I desire to take it to another level. I truly want to be known as a great artist as well as a Godly man. God will show me favor in this as well.

Now that is pretty much all I have on my agenda. Beyond the normal of working and making contacts. Give me some feedback and let me know what you think about it. Thanks.

Oh yeah the pic for today is old school Grifter. I use to love this character back in the day.

Good ol 90's

Well, things are going good. I am pretty swamped with commissions and such but that is a good thing.

I decided as warm ups for this month that I would draw characters from comics that I loved to read in the 90s. Now, my first sketch is of Savage Dragon. I am not a huge Savage Dragon fan but the mini series that Jason Pearson did called "Blood and Guts" is one of my favorite series ever. I love Jasons' work.

That is it for now. Hope to have a new post up in a day or two. Peace.

New Year and new outlook

Well, I am going to start posting a lot more in my blog and not as much in other sites. I think lately I have become to internet active and have not done enough work. So, that is part of my resolution for this year. I want to draw more and be more productive. Growth is important to me and lately I do not see a lot of that in my work but I am still drawing and that is a great thing.

This year is starting out pretty good. I just finished up a tight deadline for a on line computer gaming company that paid pretty well and I just got a call back from a local church who is considering me for a Youth Pastor position. If I get the Youth Pastor position I plan on quiting my full time job and doing it and art. Plus, my son will be able to stay home with me and not have to go to daycare. Such a good blessing. God is good.

I am presently working on several comicbook related projects and a ton of commissions. I have several I have not finished and need to get done. I also have a couple covers I need to finish. Life is good. God is good.

Thanks for reading and hope to post some more cool stuff in a day or two. Be blessed.
