Time for the quarterly report

Well, it's as I feared, I keep meaning to update but never get around to it. Since it's ComicCon in San Diego next week this seemed like as good a time as any. I wasn't planning on going this year but at the last minute it turns out that I'm part of a panel on 'designing the Clone Wars' so away I go. What's been going on over the last 4 months? Real life things like a trip to Yosemite National Park which was pretty amazing and work stuff like Clone Wars and Clone Wars-related jobs like sketch cards and one whole comic cover. I've also cobbled together some material for a joint self-published art book called 'Battle Milk'. There's four of us involved: Myself, Wayne Lo, Thang Le and Jackson Sze. There's even a website to visit!
The book's 80 pages, softcover, full-colour throughout. It was hard work but really rewarding, I'm pretty happy with how it all worked out. We'll be at the nervebomb/abysmo booth, pretty near where the big fancy booths like DC are so if you're one of the several million people attending the con this year please swing by. If not, we'll have the book for sale via the interwebs too. For me the best thing about Battle Milk was that it forced me to come up with some new artwork that wasn't commissioned or part of any job, I just made it up as I went along. I need to try and make time to do this kind of thing more often, just drawing for it's own sake. There were some ideas I started but abandoned too, I'll post some over the next few weeks after I flesh them out some more. Still can't believe it's four months since I last posted anything. Where do it go?
