Hey there sports fans, Al here with the latest:
Well my friends this being one my favorite shows that I have put up though The One Man Show of last year still takes first place because let's face it was first.
But this week it comes down. 
It had a good run and I was overly happy at the turn out for the show.  And again I can't say enough about you guys who came to show your support of this artist.  Thank you again!

As per usual which is always fine by me is the fact the show (or at least parts of it) will be moving to a new location with a week and half after the Hop comes down.
The show will move to a smaller place called "My Brother's Crawfish" - a Cajun style restaurant not to far from home.  So this is a different kind of venue for me but I think it will be fun.
It's good to have friends with connections.  Its always kinda of nerve racking when you begin to deal with a new venue it which to show your work and with people you have never met before.  Your only contact is thru texting.

They come  in all shapes and sizes but one of the more interesting ones is doing a commission that is only 5"x7" .  Last week I was contracted to start working on a piece that featured a friend's  son as a medieval nomadic warrior.  This harkens back to the days when I was playing DnD and illustrating images for my friends at the table of their characters.  The first of the three thumbnails I have done and should have the other two done soon.
The Best part about this was the fact that I was paid up front about this so there is no question whether or not it will get done.
I should mention that I do commissions. It usually depends size, complexity of the piece, varnished and framed.  I.E. Gilrandree Commission 11"x14" varnished, one subject, no frame- $175.00  Usually half down and half on completion of project.  Easiest way for payments is through Paypal  using my email address
If you are curious about it please email me at


I am within striking distance of finishing off the "Inhuman Torch" story line.  This makes me very happy as I have yet to letter and then hand off to my friend Paula for editing.
There are a few more panels to complete and then it's off to the races!
