Book Three of Cloudhopper! At long last, it is here. Enjoy the cover, and next week we will leap into the story proper.
(I know the cover says Book One and there is a good and logical explanation for that, but let’s not get into it right now).
The story is three years old now! It’s not going as fast as I hoped — it’s nearly sixty pages behind schedule, to be honest — but it’s going, it’s coming along. The problem is that I keep taking leaps forward as an artist, and they make me spend more time drawing. I’m terrified to tell you how much time went into the brickmaking sequence, I’ve been working on the same four pages for two months now. Well, you’ll see in a few weeks.
First, hello to everyone on Dreamwidth and Livejournal. I should warn the people still following along on this blog that I’m going to be posting daily from now on, and when you consider how completely destitute DW and LJ have been lately, that’s a whole lot. So if you have a small friends page I’m going to take it over, and I’m sorry but I’m also not sure what I can do about it. I’ll be posting original content every Monday and at other times during the week when I feel like it, and the rest of the time I’m going to be rerunning Cloudhopper one panel at a time. If you’ve already read Cloudhopper I hope you can enjoy looking at the art all up close and pretty.
Honestly, if you really really really have a problem with me going daily, post in the comments and I’ll try to figure it out, but I’m pretty sure there are not too many using LJ and DW to keep up with my work these days.
Now, on to today’s pictures!
These pictures were taken a little over a year ago, I’ve been trying to get around to uploading them for approximately forever, here they are. These are the work of Tom Otterness, one of my absolute favorite sculptors, and these are scattered around the NYC subway station, I believe at Union Park.
If you look closely they tell a story.
Based on this and other sculptures, I strongly suspect that Mr. Otterness is a communist.
