Ocular Resistance...


OK... another crappy post with a work-in-progress panel sequence...
I apologize for the recent lack of "deep and introspective" entries, but the strip is occupying most of my time these days and I haven't afforded myself much in the way of wistful reminescence as of late.

This recent trend might be due to the lack of truly lucrative freelance work in my life at the moment.
Perhaps it is simply an excuse to finish this accursed strip once and for all so that I can move into the next stage of my life... the horrific grovelling and self-depricating boot-licking I'm so anxious to begin! Hooray for self-promotion! I can hardly wait to break open that "Sycophantic Toady Kit" I've been saving patiently since my days at the Sci-Fi Channel!

Feh... it has to be done.
I got close once with an inferior product... this time will be different.


Japan trip in early November is solid now... and I can hardly wait.
More on that later...

I really don't understand why these drawings are not published in Heavy Metal or some similar publication! Although I am partial to your paintings, these are outstanding,in a twisted,violent sort of way. By the way, what's with the eye thing? Sorry I couldn't resist.I am really looking forward to the"more on that later" future blog entries. Talk to you soon - D

Just curious if you still do character sheets or storyboards for film or commercials...or consider posting your work on Highend3d in the 2d section.

To answer your question, Mrs. Persaud...

Sure... I still do character turn arounds and storyboards. I just haven't had any recent opportunities to do so. My last few contacts in that arena fizzled out when the general economy went South a few years back.

I checked the site you mentioned, but couldn't find the 2D section for posting my work... it seemed more "digitally" oriented to me. I'm a bit of a dinosaur in that I'm still basically artistically analogue! I'll give it another look soon once I have more time to delve further into the site itself.

Thanks so much for the input and the direction!

The site is digitally oriented, but many artists featured there start with traditional media and go from there.

Also, in the jobs section, I frequently see opportunities for "Concept Artist" work. I suppose networking is best, but when that isn't possible, a lot of work is posted online.

Thanks again, Mrs. Persaud.

I've been lax lately in my on-line job searching... but I plan to redouble my efforts.

I've been concentrating on my strip so intently lately that my freelance ambitions have fallen a bit by the wayside. Gotta get the accursed thing finished, you see...

Hope to hear from you again soon!
