Door Face

Gotta watch where you're going, ESPECIALLY if you are rushing around.

Speaking of not paying attention, I can see now that I have neglected to fully color in one of my frames here. And I'm gonna just leave it as is, because it's serendipitous, or some crap.

In other news, I have a new fox painting up for auction on eBay:

"Two Beggars" original fox painting

I'd tell you what else I am up to, but it is not ready to be discussed yet. That's my annoying way of saying that I am not up to fact, I am probably up to no good. But at least it's something, huh?


If you don't like the foxes, but would still like to support my creative life, you can always visit the shoppe:

Degrees of Seperation

It's STILL winter...

In high school I had spacers, a palate expander, and then braces, with a few oral surgeries speckled in there for good measure. I am sure I am not the only one. I am also sure that the four+ years I endured those particular torments has forever solidified my preference for comfort over fashion and beauty. Besides, I don't care what I look like, and I find it humorous that someone else would care what I look like. Don't get me wrong, I have limits. I don't own Crocks or Uggs of any variety.


Dudes, ladydudes, may I escort you to the gift shop??

Man Hands

So...yeaaaaah...I have picked up a part time job at a local video rental store...and that means Customer Service, which I really am just no good at...But it's good practice in maintaining my "social" side.

This is pretty much my "Happy Valentine's Day" to you all. Please don't get all creative with your compliments, a simple, classic "You look nice today" will suffice. Why make things more painful and awkward than they already are?


Hey I know some of you have filed your taxes, so you should spend some of your returns on the solid investment of cartoons:

Hellllllllooo. I kind of disappeared again. Here's a picture that will kind of explain where I'm at:

I've decided to relieve myself from the unnecessary and ridiculous pressures of creating art that I no longer feel a connection with. In other words, I'm retiring my Darkling Treasures art style.

I had this whole long explanation all written down, but you know what? I don't owe anyone a gosh-derned explanation. It's not even that, really. Hell, if you want one, here it is at its base form- I can do whatever I want, and I am going to. And what I want to do is draw silly cartoons and write stupid comics and make people laugh. I am going to make art that just comes out of my hands and my head, art that feels less like I am dreaming my life away and more like I am playing.

It's not that I'm dumping on my fantasy art, or anyone else's fantasy art, or the genre (which is VAST and encompassing). I'm simply not feeling it anymore. I've struggled with the notion of putting my fairies and mermaids and sexy naked ladies and dragons away for a long time. And the reality is that I don't necessarily have to put them away. I can just cartoonize them. It's a matter of style, and my endgame is focus. I cannot have two competing styles anymore, it's dumb. (At this point in the post, I am just ranting to rant, so I will move on...)

I have lots of art, it will still be for sale, my shops will remain open, but eventually will be moved/rebranded/closed/etc. There will be MORE cartoon art, more comics, more crazy ranting (of a slightly more inappropriate nature, I am sure) and more cool stuff. If you have questions or whatever, just email me. Ummmm....I guess that's it for meow, I'm gonna go brainstorm some cool stuff.
