...another White Wolf piece in progress...

some White Wolf "Hunters" art in progress

Above and below are some more White Wolf pieces in progress at the penciled stage. I'll be adding a few more pieces here in the next few days (probably) and then once I've done some painting and inking (and maybe a small bit of digital tweaking) I'll post some of the finishes. Many of these pieces are a bit edgy/PG-13 as they are depictions of human "hunters" who are at war with demons, witches, and ghouls in one of the fantasy worlds within the White Wolf universe. Creepy fun! :)

Charlie Huston rocks!

Just a quickie to say that I finished the the "Henry Thompson" trilogy written by Charlie Huston. They are as follows: CAUGHT STEALING, SIX BAD THINGS, and A DANGEROUS MAN. As I wrote in a previous post, I wasn't sure if I'd like these as much as the SO good Joe Pitt vampire P.I. books, but now I'm completely torn on which I enjoyed the most (for similar and very different reasons).

Anyhow, I just wanted to publicly tip my hat for the man. He's got 2 trilogies out as well as a stand-alone that came out last summer (next on my list) and another book due in September. Quite an accomplishment considering his first book came out in 2004.

I should have some new art to post shortly. Until then, read some books, watch the final season of The Wire (YOWZA!) and check out the FX series (now on DVD) "Damages" -- solid serialized TV!

Bit more art and 30 Days of Night

One more clipped portion of art and a character pose for an upcoming White Wolf book. Always a lot of fun!

Saw "30 Days of Night" last night, and while it was missing certain story elements that could have made it stronger and more compelling, we enjoyed it more than we'd hoped (we gave it 4 out of 5 stars on Netflix). It even gave me a creepy nightmare last night that is too weird to explain, so I won't even try. For any horror movie fans that aren't afraid of a little blood (okay, more than "a little"), check it out!

Art and Charlie Huston

Here's a clipped portion of one of the previous images with some ink and washes added.

Oh, and I'm on to the author Charlie Huston's other (non-vampire) novel series that begins with "Caught Stealing." I wasn't sure if I'd like it as much as the others (which were GREAT) because of the lack of vampires and zombies, but so far it's quite a page-turner. If you're looking for well-written, edgy, gritty noir that'll grab hold of you for some escapism, then I highly recommend his books!

Happy weekend all!
