art walk plus new work

Greetings my patient and loyal readers! I know it’s been kind of a while since my last post, and for that I apologize. BUT! You shall soon see that, not unlike holding a garden hose in a knot for a minute and then releasing, I have accrued a drenchingly large amount of news for you. So, consider yourself in the “Splash Zone.”



UPDATE: I canceled the showing at Blue Highway Games, rendering the above image unnecessary. Why do I keep it up? Eh, I like how it breaks up the post.

For starters, this Thursday, the 19th of June, I will be participating in the Queen Anne Art Walk. My illustrations will be exhibited at Queen Anne’s favorite gaming store, Blue Highway Games (2203 Queen Anne Ave N, Seattle, WA). The Art Walk starts at 5pm, and I’ll be there for as long as I can possibly stand it. It should be mentioned that Blue Highway has a library of open board games that customers are welcome to test play, so regardless of whether they’re showing my stuff, you should plan a visit.

An Unintended DiscoverySecondly, I’ve got a new piece finished! I’m calling it “An Unintended Discovery,” but you may know it as “That Piece Zack Has Had On His Drawing Board For, Like, A Billion Years.” I like how it turned out, and want to include it on my portfolio site. HOWEVER, I’ve only got so much room there! I’M NOT MADE OF MEGABITES, PEOPLE! So, I’ll need to kick something out of my portfolio. If you have any suggestions on which of my many crimes against the visual arts to remove, please, don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments.

Lastly, I would like to say that, although there’s been a major dearth in posting, I promise I will put up more fabulous fabulous art in the very near future. I wish I could blame my new job for the lack of personal work being posted, but, alas, what’s more likely is that video games are the culprit (you’d be surprised how many video games one can play if they’re convinced it’s “research”). So stay turned to this blog for more illustration excitement. Or… you know… more excuses. One of the two.

That is all.
