Recent work for October

October was mostly all about a commission and then a couple of pieces here and there.  I did a bookplate for a contest at the blog “A Journey Around My Skull,” one of the musts that I have on my feed.

I recommend subscribing to A Journey Round My Skull if you are at all enamored of illustrations and books, especially those that are rare and hard to find.

I also did a drawing for what I hope to be a bookmark.  I plan to get a bunch of these printed up, as soon as I scrape together enough for a new and improved inkjet printer.

Other than that, nothing much else.  Why the sparse output?  Well, I may have mentioned it before, but I only do this for a hobby.  I actually make a living as a librarian, specializing in library IT.  It’s really only been recently that I’ve started pushing to get my work out there more and more, and to improve and develop as an artist.  The two go hand in hand for me, the exposure creates opportunities and deadlines, which pushes me to put more effort into my work than I otherwise might.
