Silver Riders Illo #9 - Anne-Marie battles Ezekiel
I started working on a new series of illustrations for new pulp publisher Airship 27 - in this case, a Weird Western entitled Silver Riders, by Greg Hatcher.

In this ninth and final illustration: Ezekiel points at Anne-Marie in anger, while on the ground, Larry’s body is being surrounded by a black liquid tendril from the pool of inkiness.

Silver Riders Illo #8 - Anne-Marie flashback
I started working on a new series of illustrations for new pulp publisher Airship 27 - in this case, a Weird Western entitled Silver Riders, by Greg Hatcher.

In this sixth illustration: The 9 yr. old Anne-Marie stands on porch of her shack house, in her torn, dirty dress looking up at Ezekiel, with his white beard and hair, on the seat of the covered wagon looking down at her with a smile.

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
