A bizarre encounter in the alleyway

Finished this piece in color, finally. Don't bother asking me to explain, I have no idea what it means either, but I invite you to write a short story and post it here..... only if you have a bunch of time on your hands, but it might be fun, no?

I started teaching my class today at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art). I am teaching a course on Fantasy Art. I think it is going OK, but I also think I may have come across as totally insane to the students... which is better than coming across as a jerk.... but the semester is still young!

Nooo!! your not insane. : ) me and Julia can rough people up if they start getting out of line. I think the first day went well. I think it was nice ending the class with your work, most teachers dont show there work and i think that sets a low standard :(
Again! dont be nervous! your class is already awesome :D

Don't worry so much, I think most people are excited from what I've seen. And it was awesome to see your work, and all the examples of fantasy art you'd brought in. I'm looking forward to next Wednesday. :)

Hey Sean,

The place you can go to get a new Wendigo print: ME. What day do you teach? I will hand deliver it if I am able.

Hey, thanks Nick. I appreciate that. Got another one sitting on my drawing table right now that I am excited about, check back in a few days and let me know what you think.

Also, I took your advice and I am venturing into the gallery world. I am currently planning and organizing an exhibition of local artists that should be going up in June. If you happen to be in the area around that time for any reason you should come check it out! More info on that will be forthcoming on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
