frequently infrequent


So, its been awhile since I've posted on here and I feel like a slacker, but oh, I am not. I've been working myself to death and enjoying every second of it. I do make time to see movies, which by the way if you haven't seen Transformers, Harry Potter, or Ratatouille, stop what you're doing and go watch.
Other than that I've been doing a lot of work which, unfortunately, is all top secret, confidential, information. With that being said, I sound important, and I only have one piece to post for your viewing pleasure. I started working on this many months ago and never finished it. It was boring, dull, and and I was kinda stumped as to what I wanted to do with it. So, I finally dug it back out and here is the result. Still not really finished but I felt that I had to post something.
Oh, I've been having strange coincidences lately . So tonight while I was working on a character design and looking up fireflies(or lightning bugs, not sure of the difference) on google something happened that still makes me smile this very minute. As I'm staring at the computer screen at these odd little creatures with lights on their butts, out of the corner of my eye a big flying insect comes full speed wrecklessly hitting me in the side of my head and landing on my book. Scared the crap out of me but to my surprise and relief, walking around curiously inspecting every square inch of the book, is a freakin lightning bug! May not sound too crazy to you, I'm sure, but I haven't seen any yet this year and anything is better than searching Google images to no avail. He chilled on my desk for a while before I put him in a cup and took him outside. I'm sure he thanked me.
Anyway, that has nothing to do with anything but I like coincidences!
Enjoy this piece.

Great piece! Glad to see you posting again. This looks like it's straight out of the "Art of Ratatouille" book.

Nice lightening bug story too btw. I was entertained. :)

This is really nice. I'd love to see more like this.

I love Lighting Bugs. I used to catch them when I was a kid living on the east coast. They don't have them out here, so I just tell my kids about them.
