For those who are to lazy to check the connection, he writes a book, and puts over 100 new paintings in it. Goddamn it, PLUS! By October he'll be on tour with it and will be selling 500 limited editions with, you guessed it, an actual signed sketch on the signature page, a signed SKETCH though kids, it's that second word that gets me all fan-boyish more than the sign, because I'm an artist (even if not an illustrator) and having an ORIGINAL anything from my all time favorite fantasy artist kicks ass. I don't care if he doodled a donkey-schlong really, just knowing that only I had that ACTUAL piece of his art would probably have me squealing in joy like a monkey with an empty coconut.
And now I resort to something I rarely truly do, begging. If ANYBODY who can read this is capable of even sending me $5 towards the gods-be-damned $110 the fuckin' book costs I will love you forever, fuck, I'll build you a little shrine or something for the effort. I am so joanzin' over this thing that it's ridiculous and so I resort to the ridiculous in kind. Please send me cash so I can sate the monkey on my back.
IN OTHER NEWS; My writing came to a grinding halt the other day as I got through a few thousand words of a prolouge and first chapter and after nicely laying out the setting realised I'd jumped onto this concept without actually nailing down even a vauge story outline. So damnit, that'll set me back a little. In the meantine I'm trying to pick my drawing back up, and I still suck, but it's something to do. I really wants me metals tools. I really slacked last year for various and sundry reasons, but I really feel the initiative to get back on top of things, course I can't PROVE any of that sitting in my practically tool-less house (believe me i've tried, there are several teensy projects strewn about the house now.). Ah well, things are pensive right now, but not BAD, I think I'm gonna get back to reading now, that always helps me out.
Cheers kids, send money PLEASE!
