Ulysses King 2 - The Kind Ones
This is illustration 4 for a new book/anthology edited by Mark Beaulieu - "Ulysses King, book 2".

"The Kind Ones"

The Pure rose from the grey mists above the ice-marsh. Clots of gel dripped from his thin body. He had weighed ten pounds more before he had entered communion with the Transcended. He staggered from the roots of the Nurture Tree until acolytes came forward to help him.

Someone draped him in the thick plastic robes of his office. Only then did Sacrifice-is-Continuation remember who he was and what had happened.

The Righteous stood ready for his word.

Sacrifice ran his fingers over the livid welts where the roots of the Nurture Tree had bored into him. Some of the wounds were already turning septic. Such was the price for communing with the agents of the Kind Ones. If he continued in his purity, one day he too might endure the great transformation, slough his mortal flesh to become Transcended. Until then, pain and weakness were part of his duty.

Ulysses King 2 - Everyone Was Dead
This is illustration 3 for a new book/anthology edited by Mark Beaulieu - "Ulysses King, book 2".

Everybody was dead.

            I was numb with shock, with the reaction that always comes after combat. My whole unit – Vaince, Carter, Chakrat, deWalt, even nerdy tech Glover – lay in pieces around me. Just like the crew of the Tunguska when we first came here. Just like the Entity.

            I prised my fingers off my combat rifle and fumbled the safety. I followed procedure, make sure the thing was dead, whatever it was. My last volley had sprayed enough of it over the flight deck. I tried to think about what to do next.

Attempting to draw comix since 1984.
Interests
Between 10-15 years ago, I used to draw comic page commissions where I would offer to illustrate a page of script by the commissioner.  The idea was that this would set me apart from all of the artists doing mostly pinup work, and it also sounded like a fun project.  It *was* pretty fun for a while, although the kind of jobs that would come my way quickly transitioned (so to speak) into mostly fetish or transformation pieces. 

I was OK with this for a while, and did them for a couple of years.  I felt an ego boost from having folks enjoy my work and be willing to pay for it, but eventually wasn't real happy with the subject matter and ceased doing fetish-style work about ten years ago.

At the same time, I would post the work here on DA, and they would get a *ton* of views and faves.. which is also gratitifying.  As years went by, I found that I wasn't super proud of a lot of the work I had posted due to the subject matter, and I'd also improved as an artist/inker to the point of disliking my earlier work because it wasn't as well done.

I removed a goodly chunk of the more risque pieces from my gallery, but left a few milder ones... which still get a few favorites a month, many years later.  These faves still feed my ego, but the work is so far removed from the quality of work I do now, that even the more innocuous ones make me cringe when I see them.

Also, those faves mean people are seeing that work, enjoying it, and might even enjoy my more recent work, which is pretty mild in comparison.

Anyway, I think I've convinced myself while writing this into doing another purge of the rest of that stuff from my gallery... it's just not 'me' anymore.   Even though a few of them have tens of thousands of views. :D
