Life's a tough proposition, and the first hundred years are the hardest.

I wasn't going to post this because it's not really finished and it's part of a secret project, but I realized that I almost missed the two year anniversary of Drinking With Lost Souls! This rambling depression of an art blog has been here from August 2005-2007. I can't believe it lasted this long.

Lots of things have happened in those two years. Jobs have come and gone, people have come and gone. Situations have come up and gone down. It's been a roller coaster to be sure. My thanks go out to all the people who still visit this mess (even if you hardly ever comment anymore...I kid, I kid...)

Anyway, here's to another two years. Good luck to you all.

Edit: Color update!

I'm not dumb. I just have a command of thoroughly useless information.

I haven't posted in a while so here's a sneak preview of one of the Warmageddon pages I'm working on. One of the great things about it is that I spent a good amount of time on the poster in the background without realizing I was going to cover the damned thing up with people. In case you're wondering, it's a sketchy picture of two gladiators fighting. Oh, the joys of working in layers when your brain has obviously been removed.

Oh, this is a bit late but here's to Mike Wieringo. Mike passed away recently. Although I've never met him personally, we'd interacted here and there on the web. We once crossed swords ( as crossed as swords could get with Mike) over a character redesign he did. In the end, I was just being a jackass about it (if you can imagine such a thing) and he was in the right all along. I even ended up liking the design once I saw it in "action." I always felt bad about it but Mike went on to give me a series of really good critiques on artwork I'd posted on this or that message board. He was nice like that.

Everyone who has posted about Mike's passing used the drawing from his last blog post. Not me. I'm using one that always cracked me up. It's from Mike's monkey phase. It's one of my favorites, just because it makes me laugh every time I see it. Here's to ya, Mike.

Space isn't remote at all. It's only an hour's drive away if your car could go straight upwards.

Here's something I did a while back and never posted. The tattoos were a huge pain in the arse but I'm really happy with the colors.

Oh, thanks to everyone who sent their thoughts and well wishes about Allison. I miss her more every day.

I've set up a American Cancer Society Mosaic Of Memories for Allison. Feel free to visit.
