So, I went to IlluXCon last weekend and met some of my favorite artists and got to hang out with a few of em too! Highest on my list was my absolute favorite illustrator of all time, IAN MILLER!!! You really should check out his work, it's amazing... I mean, look at THIS!
Unfortunately, the picture I had someone take of me with Ian Miller somehow got erased from my stupid iPhone, so I have no hard proof, EXCEPT for the Ian Miller original I bought and have in my posession..... my first of (hopefully) many Ian Miller originals. Here it is... with my cat....
Coolest thing of all is that he seemed to really dig my work too, which is awesome, seeing as how his work has been a huge inspiration to me since seeing it in the pages of Warhammer books back in High School.
Anyways, one of the things I showed him was the piece below, which I just finished inking. Next will be to start painting it up in Photoshop. Once again I think I want to try to retain as much of the linework in the final image as possible.

So, Spectrum 15 came out this weekend! There's yours truly's piece on page 173, and fellow BHG'ers Sang Han and McLean Kendree are in there too! It's really awesome to finally have a piece grace the hallowed pages of Spectrum. A minor gripe though: They got the name of the piece wrong.... d'oh! The name they have it listed as is "Skullneck", which is the OTHER piece I entered but did not get in. Oh well, not a biggie. Now I just have to get into Spectrum 16 so that people don't think it was just a fluke.
Anyways, my friend Unkie Dev and I have been collecting art found in the trash for many years. We have built up quite a collection, which includes pieces with such amazing names as "Boob Cave", and "Nature's Bounty". Now, my wife Kathleen has gotten into the act... she rescued this gem from certain oblivion... enjoy:
Finally, this is what is on my drawing table at the moment.... I have no idea what it is, or why it is, but let me know what you think of it so far....
