For all the many things to which I could pay tribute to my brother, Tag, I choose to recognize one thing that sets him apart from everyone else in the entire world.  Since it's inception, there has only been one individual who had the courage to be an open follower of my art blog.  Now I know there are a handful of you that secretly take a glance here and there, and I appreciate your visit, I do.  But according to my secret blog statistics, my brother stands alone as my 1 follower.  I salute you Taggart Giles.

As a token of my esteemed gratitude I post a rough sketch depicting your majesty.

Some of you may be wondering why the above image is merely a low resolution photo of the sketch taken with a camera phone.  Well my friends, I still have not developed the habit to save my work as I go and my computer loves to freeze on me when I least suspect it.  This is not the first time this has happened, and I suspect it won't be the last.  Does anyone know if Photoshop has an autosave feature?

So in conclusion... I'm a doofus.

first fruits

In it's most crudely primitive form, I present to you my first animation.
So far, everyone who has seen this asks me if the sandbag is a pig... and no one has yet asked me if it is a sandbag.  It is a sandbag.  Not a pig.  Just a regular bag of sand.  A bag with sand in it.
