    Hey everyone! I am still alive and of sound health Thank you so much for the words of support and encouragement... especially when this SB was falling into its occasional bout of neglect. I've had a hard time finding a reason to get out of bed some days within the last few months (let alone find inspiration and reasons to draw...!) but was pleasantly surprised with an abundance of paid work recently and have found a few sparks here and there. In other words, I feel poopy but I still have some ideas hanging around. ^_~

    So while I wish I had epic, experimental and daring updates for this book, you're gonna have to settle for more self portraits, a few thumbs for a comic idea and studies for this month's Steph o' the Month. And oh yeah, last month's So'tM. You might have seen it in the FF section, or you might not. Fun facts: the sepia self po' was drawn during a panic attack and the So'tM will be featured at the Axiotron booth at MacWorld this January in the form of a 16 foot printed banner. If you're in the area, swing by to see it or better yet, swing by to say hi to me as I will be doing art demos in the booth to promote ModBooks.

    So yeah. Letting things settle before the holidays and scrambling for some new direction. But at the very least, I have paid off my bills for this year and managed to save a bit of dough, which in this day and age, is a big accomplishment in and of itself. Jeebus.

    Much love and thank you for looking.

    Thank you Dawn! Still trying to keep up momentum and all. Be sure to gimme your email addy btw, so I can send you a holiday card this year

    Another quickie update - went to the SF zoo yesterday for a friend's birthday and had a good sketch run! I think I am really sacrificing form for movement in my gestures though, so that's something to pay attention to in the future.

    Kelly: I guess it's just checking in, I don't have the audacity to promise that I'll be a regular on here since so much is in flux! But I'll try to post whenever possible. Which will be more than once a month. I hope.

    So... checking in with a little TMI. I've got to further alienate the testosterone from my SB, right? This should do the trick!

    P.S... GAH, why can't I think up any good holiday card ideas? For the record, this wasn't one of them...

    Haha, Steph, that is hilarious. Only you can take a subject like that and make it so charming.

    Seriously, we have to catch up. I miss you a ton!

    Great sketches. I especially like the Zoo page as I know first hand that Giraffes can be really hard. The piece the puppy looks great, like you are getting even better with the collage/cutout(?) style. Pixar won't be able to resist for long!

    purb36 Thanks so much! I don't expect tp be back in Boston until the spring (End of April/May) and I am not sure how long I will be there, but I'll let you know once I figure that out. MacWorld was the first week in January, but you can catch a glimpse of how it went in this post

    Bill Thank you for the kind words! I love love LOVE giraffe heads, they're so bumpy and snobby looking to me. Plus, they're shaped so irregularly that they're easy to fake

    HunterKiller_ Haha, it doesn't make you furry. Only a fan of boobies and... hooves?

    Clochette
    I am so glad that the shipping as all resolved. I felt terrible when the packages were returned to me! I hope all is well with you

    lefran Thanks dear! How have things been in your part of the world?

    0kelvin Thanks Eric And I look forward to having you crash at my place in... holy shit, a few weeks. Where is the #!%&$@! time going?!

    Patch Hahah, thank you! I'm glad that vag humor didn't send you running for the hills ^_~

    Ok, so this year has already been crazy busy with like a buncha gallery shows, a change in jobs, MacWorld and soon WonderCon. AIEEEEEE!!!n So I'll start with the wonderful surprise I got at MacWorld...

    Steph's Brain Farts (NSFW): 11/17 - Creatures and CTN

    Big art is BIG! This is the second year that I've been a demo artist for Axiotron and they had asked if they could feature the dog piece in their booth; I didn't realize they were gonna use the octopus one too! It was crazy to see my stuff that huge and what's better is that they let me keep these once the show went down. My bedroom and living room walls are now full of awesome and I will be using the lower half of one of these at my booth at WonderCon in a few weeks!

    So, time for new content! I made a train piece for A.Okay's CTA show, which opens this Sunday in Chicago! Sadly I have to sit the opening out because I'll be in the middle of a sequoia forest with my sweetie that weekend. Happens.

    Steph's Brain Farts (NSFW): 11/17 - Creatures and CTN

    So the assignment was to buy a model train of any kind and decorate it how you wish. I picked up an $11 wooden bullet train with magnetic fasteners and went from there. This guy is made from wood, plastic, metal, various Japanese papers, upholstery trim, bronze paint, matteboard and paper clay. Phew! And a smidge of blood... there was one tiny incident with the X-acto yesterday.

    Steph's Brain Farts (NSFW): 11/17 - Creatures and CTN

    I put a section of a cardboard tube on the roof to give the guy a more natural slope to his back and avoid corners for when it came time to shingle him. Unfortunately none of the online dollhouse stores had the small fishscale shingles in stock, so I had to resort to trimming the edges off of these tabbed shingles by hand. Considering I was planning of paper maché-ing each shingle by hand anyway, this extra step wasn't a big deal.

    Here he is with 2/3 of this scales and a paperclay base for his tail.

    A primitive head of matteboard and paperclay...

    Steph's Brain Farts (NSFW): 11/17 - Creatures and CTN

    ...then a bucha stuff happened all at once and he ended up looking like this.

    Steph's Brain Farts (NSFW): 11/17 - Creatures and CTN

    I was going to document this much more but I got into a big time crunch and well, there we are. I PROMISE I will take much nicer photos of him tomorrow before he begins his overnight journey to Chicago, so for now, bear with the yellowed, slightly blurry mess. I am one of the most impatient people on the planet, you see.

    It was great to get out of my element and start sculpting again. I forgot how much I miss making puppets and letting tangible materials have so much of a hold over a character. Great times, let's hope I find something nice to make from all the remnants I have leftover.

    Thanks for looking, guys
