Welcome back, my Beloved Minions. I have much to share with you today.
First, before I forget: A few weeks ago I started up a Tumblr page, devoted to daily updates of the monsoon of fan service I've done this year. You heard right. Daily updates. I've got enough queued up to last through next summer so far.

For a taste, here's a quick roundup of some of my favorites so far:
Now, on to the "Infrequent Updater Belated Recent News!"
Flash back to June, the Illustration Master Class 2011. The annual art god slumber party and all-you-can-gobble inspiration buffet. Some of you folks will remember my glowing review the 2010 IMC.

Ahem. Shameless plug concluded. Well almost. The IMC 2012 is now open for registration. This year's special guest, the inimitable Brom! I've been lucky enough to hang out with Brom a few times. He rocks in a way that defies words. I'm very much looking forward to it.
Now onto art! Kicking off with the piece I did for the IMC 2011:
And, since it seems relevant, we'll throw in some good ol' Star Wars:
Plus, Magic players have been asking about this one:
