Week in Review [ Mar.28 - Apr.3]

Just in case you've missed it on [ instagram ]
This is kind of a long update, I wish instagram had image size options when you embed your images to your blog.

I know I said I was going to start painting on that Cthulhu illustration on Monday, I instead decided to work on some Artist Sketch Cards 1. sell on feebay (I need to try and generate some cash since sales are still ridiculously slow.) and 2. they're subject matter that I'm working on building a bunch of samples to try and get onto sets of. Walking Dead & Game of Thrones. One of them is with a different company than the one I've been working with currently. I also need to hone those marker skills.

Now for what I'm currently working on:

I also went and had some sketch cards made up at the local printer on my bristol (just because I know the quality of the paper, I hate dealing with unknown paper types). They're a hair smaller than they should be, I like them well enough. When I run out I'll probably just find a place online to get them printed from. Need to do some research for that.

The gouache I ordered finally came in, I have several illustrations that have been on hold because of that, hopefully this week I can start on them.

If anyone's interested I am open for sketch card commissions. you can either email me, or place your order [ HERE ].

And don't forget to follow me on instagram, I'm always posting art updates there.

SketchFest is live this weekend so I've been working on a few prompts. At the moment I have no plans to turn these concept drawings into full paintings.

Stag of the Moon: I know it's not a 'stag' but, this is where the prompt led me.

I have one more prompt to work on, I'm not sure I'll get it done in time (only a few hours left to SketchFest72). Today I'd like to try and hammer out one or two sketch cards or 4x6's to list on feebay tomorrow AM. Unsure yet.

If you really want to keep up to date on what I'm working on make sure you follow me on Instagram (or Twitter, all of my IG posts flow to twitter).

Google Abandoning Blogger users in favor of Social Media Image Sharing.


As of March 15, 2016, google will no longer be supporting the Picasa desktop application. After much thought and consideration, we’ve decided to retire Picasa over the coming months in order to focus entirely on a single photo service in Google Photos. We believe we can create a much better experience by focusing on one service that provides more functionality and works across mobile and desktop, rather than divide our efforts across two different products.

Basically what that means is they are abandoning bloggers and desktop users in favor of mobile applications and sharing across social media platforms. Google photos is bare bones meant for the sole purpose of sharing via google plus and facebook. You will no longer be able to create thumbnails of your images or directly link to your images as we bloggers need to.

I'm just so sick of this. I pay extra to have extra storage space because comcast totally canceled their photo storage/hosting option, and I refuse to use photobucket. The sheer amount of image theft there makes me sick.

Honestly I have no idea what I'm going to do for image hosting now. Next thing, I bet, will be getting rid of blogger all together. =( Then I'll have no other choice to move to word press (which I don't want to do because unless you subscribe (aka pay) you have absolutely no control over your content.)
