Busier than a one-legged man at an ass-kicking contest...

...But here's my faithful Friday blog post, as usual.
First off, an update on the main source of my busy-ness, the robot PI painting. This thing seems like it has been taking forever... I think it's the technique I chose. But latelty I've been employing what I call the "grisaille-a-prima" technique, and that seems to be helping thing come along nicely.

 On another robot-related note, I've been working on some book jacket illustrations for a collection of short stories by Isaac Asimov in Graphic Design for the Illustrator. Here's the front cover so far, needs solid blacks and some digital spot color:
 And the back cover. text goes in the blank spot, we're using lorem ipsum (filler text).
 These are based on the (very) short story Insert Knob A Into Slot B from the collection. Both drawn in pen and ink.
And here's a logo I designed, that appears on the crate on the front cover, stretched and squished in photoshop to fit the perspective, and will also appear on the "book"'s spine.

See y'all later!
