141: spade and harrier concept art | sim________14 September, 2013

happy (?) holy day, etc. go apologize to somebody you love! in other news, more digital input experiments / concept art. (sim buckley:)


also, did i mention that the building i’ve been working on for the past six months or so for brooklyn bridge park has gone out to bid? also that it appears that it will actually be built? images may be forthcoming at some point. (and if they’re not, you can always visit it when it’s done! august 2014, in theory.)

otherwise, lots of half-started (and in some cases finished) prose fiction (mainly flash / short, though one thing that might turn into a novella). i’m trying to steer toward short projects, just to give myself the opportunity to write a greater diversity of things. also, my entry to the mcsweeney’s column competition did not win, but i highly encourage you to go check out the lucky (/talented) winners! the internet tendency has quickly become a favorite of mine, particularly this and this.

…or at least no draw. but everything’s set up now (!). at least everything that i’m going to set up (other people may well still be in the middle of things, yanno?) and it’s exciting! i’m trying out a lot of new means and methods for digital drawing, and i think i may have settled on a style i kinda like. i suppose the real world equivalent would be watercolor over pencils (and the look is fairly faithful), but man is it different in terms of workflow. and physical flow. one of my favorite things about watercolors is just letting them do what they want to, letting the physics mix the pigments on the page. and that is completely out the window with digital. everything needs to be considered, measured, proscribed, executed. but i guess that’s kind of a watchword of modern times, right? — ‘let’s trade a little magic for a little convenience.’

rest in peace, elmore leonard. you were a detroit giant, which sounds like a baseball team, but is in fact not. i don’t think. justified, get shorty, and jackie brown. a resume like that needs no recitation. thanks for everything!

and it ain’t quite raylan givens, but here’s the next page of spade and harrier. sorry for the excessive wait and lack of backgrounds — things are still in flux in the pipeline. fluxxy pipeline, you know.
