What's up summer?

Hey fellow followers of the ways of awesomeness,

I can't believe the time has passed so quickly! I am so lame! I really want to be a better friend to your eye sockets with my awesomeness, I mean it..... I just seem to suffer from bad luck from time to time. Any of you who are old school and follow me, or have followed me, or whatever sounds less creepy, will know that my life is full of amazing things, and also challenges. I joke that it's the "Artist curse" to be a little crazy.... but it's true, and it totally sucks. 

But like any storm, I weather it, and will continue to try and entertain and inspire! I found this poem (ya,ya.. so I like poetry)  to fit quite nicely to how I've been feeling lately, so I thought I'd share....

"Each minute bursts in the burning room,
The great globe reels in the solar fire,
Spinning the trivial and unique away.
(How all things flash! How all things flare!)
What am I now that I was then?
May memory restore again and again
The smallest color of the smallest day:
Time is the school in which we learn,
Time is the fire in which we burn."

"Calmly We Walk Through This April's Day" in " In Dreams Begin Responsibilities (1938)"
 Delmore Schwartz

Ahhh the drama of artists right? To know us is to love us I guess.....

Checking in

Hey all,

Sorry I have not been keeping up with this better. Your good buddy saw has been down with the crud, then my camera equipment broke, i'm chomping at the bit to post new pics and a tutorial I have been working on. Also it looks like they want me back at "Feast of blades" again, so i'm excited for that!

Just wanted to say hi, and let you all know I didn't forget about you :)

Keep building,

Trench extension

Hey all, 

Here are some pictures of my Infinity extension board I did for Mr. Adam stout. It's a 3' wide, by 4' long piece of eye candy I just had to share with you all. It's a Teseum mine, container yard, with a 90' (scale) overhead traveling crane. I also incorporated a dice tower, and a rail system, to link up with mine pieces; if the need ever comes up. The containers themselves were made by a very talented paper artist by the name of Tommygun. (Sadly, at the time of this post, his website looks to be down, so I linked to his Warseer forum pages. Look for his link to his website on the bottom of his posts).
 Thank you again for your generosity Tommygun, as this wouldn't look the same without your models!

As I am a knuckle head, with a severe case of technical bad luck, I was not able to get any production shots of the finished board. Adam being the fine human being that he is, brought the board down to demo it, at feast of blades and Rob from Spikey bits, was there and snapped some shots. A big thank you to Rob, and Adam for hooking a brother up, thanks guys!

Thanks again to Adam for his patronage, Infinity for putting out a great game, and Rob for getting me the pics, as well as all of you who are writing in, and complementing my work, or just checking it out... Thanks! 

Keep building,

Hail to art in all it's forms

I'm sitting in my hotel room, wiped out from 2 days of pure heaven. I have immersed myself in my hobby, one of my loves; and my favorite art form..... Yes you guessed it terrain. Not only terrain though, but I've been talking miniatures, fine scale modeling, painting techniques, art in many forms, as well as seeing business sharing ideas and innovative products like the Grex airbrush line (drool,…. it’s so cool) or the guy’s (and gal) from blue table painting, who are not only super cool and talented beyond belief, but absolute painting machines (like 12 straight hours, I think). Also I have to give mad props from my old media days to the guys from 40K nation working hard running a professional web streaming show, doing  interviews,  live blog celebs Q and A’s, as well as all the final games for this amazing  tournament (and that’s just what I've seen when I could peek in). I know that’s hard work, and their just so cool.

 I have been honored to talk with gamers from across the country, hobby enthusiast, curious hotel staff and guests, as well as artists of such an amazing caliber; I'm humbled by their inclusion of me in the community. To everyone I have talked with, it has been a sincere pleasure, for all the compliments, a humble thank you, to all the familiar faces I am getting to know, your loyalty shows the very best that people can be; and for all the support..... There is not a word I know that can encompass, or explain how much it means to me!

See you all at the show tomorrow!

I have been putting a website together and will be sharing more about that in the coming weeks. if you would like to see some of my stuff in person, I will be at "Feast of Blades" happening at the end of October (26 - 28th)

Hope to see you there!
Stay tuned for more exciting info as it happens

The trench that Adam paid for

Hey all Saw here with some new goodness for your eye sockets. This was a commission for a fellow named Adam, and I have to say I like the way it turned out. It is a dessert style trench board with lots of tight corners, for super close combat. It is for a game system called infinity, but is scaled to play with any 28mm game system ;But enough of my babbles, here's the pics....

I am happy to present to you "SS-107"

Ah yes, the last one has your truly messing with something. Once again I need to thank Adam for his patronage and faith in me as an artist to complete this project. Thank you also to all the folks who have been giving me comments and emails, it is both flattering and humbling to have so many people interested in my work..... Thanks!
