Training Wheels and Humble Pie

Humble Pie first... NO Grammy. Oh well. It was an unexpected laurel to begin with. I wasn't aware that the Smithsonian Chamber Players had been in contention until I got an email from Dorian Recordings that they were nominated. Well, I can still plug it into my résumé.

The comic is going along well. I got wind from the editor that he's shopping it to Scholastic, so I'm toning down my "Nightmare Material". The demons were reworked to be more along the lines of Sendak's Wild Things. I also am making sure that I don't show any "naughty bits" of the native Hawaiians.

Training Wheels... I got burned out on my digital work, and decided to hit the brushes... hard. I had a panel ready for the last week, and finally got a good idea on Friday. It's going to be a limited pallet, but I think the theme will carry the piece rather than my color choices. It's a large painting at 24 inches high by 42 inches wide. The photolink is of my "day 1" progress. The photo has a bit of glare and uneven lighting, but you'll get the idea.
