This is the initial sketch and finished inks and colors for a print I'm working on at the moment...it's a Japanese themed design, incorporating some tattoo style imagery. This drawing is based on a Hannya mask, from the Japanese Noh theater and represents the spirit of a jealous woman.

After too many months of trying to figure out how to store some files online to link to, I thought I had found the answer in Yahoo groups. I created my own Yahoo group and uploaded a file to it, figuring I could just link to it here on the blog. It worked at first, but after a few minutes the links died, hence the 'document not found' message that you got if you tried clicking on the link. I did a google search for 'free online storage' tonight and the first site i found was www.box.net where you can get 1gb of free storage (more if you want to pay). The site is really easy to work with and includes a way to embed your files in your blog, along with this handy dandy little mp3 player. Here's my first offering with it. It's an old...ok, very old (Dec. 1988) piano piece. There was a companion piece to this (Improvisation No.1 - Night Forever After) uploaded to this blog in the early days of it's creation, along with a couple of other music pieces. This, and Improvisation No.1, were both originally recorded as part of a tape of my music from the time entitled 'Nightflight'. The cover art (pre-computer!), created by my friend Bill Akunevicz, Jr., is shown here. The tape was played during a solo art show I had at Brooklyn College that December. Over time I'll be uploading some newer stuff as well.

This was another solo piano piece on Nightflight.

A few things from the sketchbook...the bottom is part of page 2 of 'The Hills Are Alive With The Sound of Monsters'...page 1 was on this blog March of last year. The 'Monster' logo is part of the lettering I did for the title. Above that is a page I started working on tonight...sort of an intro page for three new characters, with their names written in my made up Asian influenced type.
