My partner and I were at the SMFA Art Sale reception last night -- but since the sale started at 11 AM, we didn't see my framed piece (Cardinals Communing) on the wall, as someone had bought it a half-hour before we arrived! The sale, which benefits SMFA students and programs, continues through this Sunday (today and Sat. 11-7, Sunday 11-5) and I still have some of my shrinkwrapped pieces in the racks for browsing. smfa.tufts.edu/events-exhibits

Post 2 of 2: The next 3 color STUDY pages, in progress, just washes (clearly not finished!) Pages 007--9.

Back to work on the color STUDIES for Spirits & Seekers: Cagliostro in Courland. Putting down washes first. Post 1 of 2: Studies for pp 004--6.

Thanks to a few tips from Clip Studio chatters, I can now do animation -- including using scanned original art (what we used to call "traditional animation) in Clip Studio Paint! (Formerly known as Manga Studio.)

Here's _Cardinals Communing_ with watercolor over the scratchboard. This is this year's holiday card, and it's all printed and ready to sell at MICE this weekend. The card crop is a little narrower horizontally than the framed version, which I'm offering in the School of the (Boston) Museum of Fine Arts alumni Art Sale next month.

Scratchboard completed -- watercolor tomorrow. Not 100% happy, but I never am.

Working on this year’s holiday card, which I’ll also have in the SMFA benefit Art Sale. Still need to figure out the transition from the background to the figures. Once that’s done, I’ll go over it with watercolor — the female cardinal on the left, the male n the right.

Wandering about New York Comic Con all this weekend. Gotta run to see Roz Chast!

Off tomorrow for New York Comic Con! I don't have a table but will be wandering about. And wouldn't you know, 24 Hour Comic Book Day again falls during NYCC!

Opening tomorrow at noon to Cambridge Open Studios! In the meantime, last night I was at Cambridge Art Association with a page from "Laird MacGuffin's Treasury" from my comic of the same name.

Busy getting ready for Cambridge (MA) Open Studios -- but in the meantime, tonight I'll be at the reception for the COS Preview (a group show of COS participants -- I have a piece from my comic "Laird Macguffin's Treasury") at Cambridge Art Association. If you're in the Boston area, it's at 25 Lowell Street near Mount Auburn Hospital. Join me tonight, 6--8 PM! cambridgeart.org/

If Hurricane Florence doesn’t suddenly decide to track north instead of west, I will be at *Table F5B* at Small Press Expo this weekend. It’s open to the public Saturday and Sunday at the Marriott North Bethesda, right near the White Flint station on the DC Metro. See you there, I hope! lnkd.in/dFPm3D5

My go-to window glass co. I go to for the plexi I use for framing is out of business!! 😭

Final versions of the Nightshade Seed Company series, Part Deux. Despite the same top and bottom banner color for the entire series, there were differences in how these came out in the scans, even before I added the color profile and made any adjustments. And the way these look as JPEGs make them redder than they look in Photoshop, let alone on the originals.

Final versions of the Nightshade Seed Company series, in this toot and the next. Despite the same top and bottom banner color painted across the entire series -- that is, I painted them all at once -- there were differences in how the colors came out in the scans, even before I added the color profile and made any adjustments. And the way these violets look as JPEGs make them redder than they look in Photoshop, let alone on the originals.

More studies from the Getty Museum. [Description: a watercolor sketch of Antonius, companion to Hadrian.]

Making progress on the Nightshade Seed Co. paintings, including lettering. I swear that using frisket makes me feel as though I've been given permission to cheat. Let me know if the text is hard to make out!
