Some of the more astute amongst you might have noticed that I'm not terribly active around dA anymore.... This is because I've gone and gotten myself a job, tally-ho! But not just any job; I'm now officially a commercial artist, drawing stuff for money and all that! :la:

Unfortunately this means I'm unable to post the art I create until after the projects I work on have been published. I'm quite active here, but for now I use dA mostly as a place to just chill during downtime. =p

Now, for the meat of this journal! One of the projects I'm working on at present is a little comic called Arthur Shilling. It's a steampunk series about a gentleman who's a plumber by day, paranormal investigator by night! As you may have guessed, I'm drawing the interior art for the first issue (and hopefully future ones!), which'll have a print run of 500. We're trying to raise the modest funding for this issue via Kickstarter, so I'm calling upon my little following of watchers here to throw a little Arthur Shilling's way and help us make this thing a reality! We've got some nice little goodies for people who pledge certain amounts, and a few select generous pledgers will get an original page of artwork by yours truly! :dummy:

So go on, even a shilling is more than welcome! Here's the Kickstarter page


Even if you're a little skint, just liking the page and spreading the word about Arthur would be great!

On a very much related note, as part of the campaign, the writers of Arthur Shilling filmed me drawing the titular character for the first time. Follow the link and you can see Mr. Magpie babbling about arty things whilst tackling Arthur for the very first time! :la:

Hi, I'm CrimsonMagpie. I've always been a dick, but then I got radiation poisoning and now I'm a giant dick. I create art, and sometimes understand the things that happen around me.

I just started painting traditionally (acrylics pn canvas), and guess what - I started with Magic: The Gathering basic lands, just like you did a few years ago.
I just want to say thank you for the inspiration. :)

Ah cool, your studies of Avon's work are great, and he's a brilliant artist to learn from! These images aren't official I'm afraid, simply work for a college module, but maybe one day I'll get to paint something for Wizards of the Coast.... :p

Yeah, that's what I'm dreaming of, too...
However, thank you and keep on going. :)
