I started to rewatch 1984's Dune last night and thought it would be fun to do a sketch of the character Thufir Hawat. I think I'll do a Gurney Halleck/Patrick Stewart next.

A quick little sketch that I did of our dictator hating (Castro), yet dictator loving (Putin) President Elect. Mr. Little Hands with the big hat. I think I'll be doing a lot of cartoons over the next four years. Just a hunch.

I have nothing new to show as I'm waiting on some approvals and finishing up some stuff, so in the meantime here is a sketch from last summer of The Master from Guillermo del Toro's The Strain. Well, at least it was the Master before he took over the rock star, before being beheaded and now in a new form.

I hadn't realized that this set was released back in February with all of the other stuff going on, so here are the cards that I did for The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson. This set was put out by Unstoppable Cards and have sold out according to the site, so eBay may be your best bet.

This weekend is the Fantasticon show in Mt. Clemons, MI. I am scheduled as a guest in Artists Alley, but due to my leg injury I just won't be able to make it. However, my wonderful wife has volunteered to run my table in my place. The full set up won't be there, but prints and some books will be on hand. So, stop on by if you are in the area.

So, October has been a challenging month for me physically, to say the least. After learning of the passing of a friend at the beginning of the month, it was a downhill from there. First, I was at the Detroit Zoo inspecting the main fountain and was walking to the smaller seal fountain when the next thing I know, my forehead bounced of the concrete. A few scant seconds later I heard a kid say, "Mommy, that man fell." Thanks for letting me know and that's no sarcasm. It was that quick. The culprit? Goose poop that had settled and spread out when it was filled with water. I slipped in it and down I went. I had a nice welt on my forehead, but luckily no concussion. No blurriness, no stars, just a Tommy Boy sized mark on my noggin.
Next up, my colonoscopy. Not an injury at all, but not something pleasant to think about. All good with that, though. the worst part was the prep and the daylong purge. Fun.
And then, the coup de grace. My Godson Sam was having a laser tag party for his birthday and either he or his parents wanted an adult there, so who am I to pass up a chance to run around and be a goofball? Well, I paid the price. I stepped where I thought was a step and not a ramp, while my thigh was going one way and my calf/shin went the other. I finally found something more painful than kidney stones. To make a long story short, I fractured the tip of my left tiba, sprained every ligament around the knee, and tore the meniscus. No damage to the knee cap at all. Haven't been able to walk since, but I'm mending and can see the light.
So, a sketch was in order, of course. I need to find humor in all of this.
p.s. I had a teeth cleaning in the middle of all this that went superbly. Any port in a storm....

Tonight there will be a Ghostbusters themed art show at the Phoenix Cafe in Hazel Park, MI. Although, I do have a piece in the show (seen above), I will not be in attendance because of my leg injury. But, if you like all things Ghostbusters, check out the show. There is a cover, I'm assuming because there will be a couple of bands playing. This might be a one night thing, not sure if the artwork will be up after tonight, but it starts at 7pm and all artwork is for sale.
