So it's been over a year since I last posted a journal update.  A lot happened last year that derailed my happy life.  The biggest hit of 2017 was when my Father passed away suddenly Feb 12th 2017.  Although he wasn't in the best of health, it was sudden and devastated my family.  We've been on the rebound ever since.

The highlight of 2017 was that I was one of 10 artist chosen by the City of San Marcos to paint 1 of 10 mermaid statues that are over 7 feet tall.  They will be on display in San Marcos for two years but have yet to be installed.

I started working on some new things.  Themed Masks mainly.  And I've been experimenting with new art styles and techniques.  Like I said 2017 was a roller coaster of a year.  2018 has also started off rotten, but that's life and I'll work through it.

The Chesapeake Ripper
I did this charcoal drawing to auction off in March at Rev-Con 2017.  I had stopped working on it for nearly year before deciding to finish it.  Soon after I finished this in February 2017 my Father passed away suddenly, but at least I got to share it with him before he died.

Winter Frost Fairy Leather Mask
I knew I wanted to do something with winter, since it was December and moving into January, but I wasn’t quite sure what.  I started by dying it a navy blue and began to doodle on it with gold and silver metallic paint pens.  I shined up the horns with gold rub-n-buff and started finding the icy flora to fix atop it.  I worked through the night, I just couldn’t stop.  It’s addicting just letting these things come to life.  And when I finally finished I was quite happy with it. It sold quite quickly.
