So, today I participated (nay, organized) my first sketchcrawl here in Baltimore. Check out www.sketchcrawl.com for more info, but basically it's a world-wide event where people gather together in their respective cities and draw urban scenes then upload them to the sketchcrawl site. We had about 7 people, which was cool. Still trying to get the thread opened up on the official site so that everyone can upload their images, but below you will find the two sketches I did (fingers were getting numb from the cold after 2 hours, so next time we will have to work with more direct sunlight if it occurs during the winter months).
Below those are some pages from the old sketchbook.

Got some work appearing in a couple of publications currently on the shelves: 3 full-page pieces in "The Future of Fantasy Art" published by Harper Collins, and "Spectrum 16: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art" published by Underwood Books. (That is actually the back cover of Spectrum, but for some reason it's the one they are showing on Amzaon...)

On Monday, November the 2nd, at 11:58 AM, my beautiful wife gave birth to the most amazing little boy: Connor Vincent Murray. Life has greater meaning and purpose, and an amazing new adventure awaits me! Be on the lookout for his sketchblog within the coming months.... he seems to be a quick learner.
