Hi, guys! It's been a few days. I've been working hard on a game project deadline. I'm not quiiiiite finished, but I got over that hurdle, and can get back to everything else on my schedule. I am going to take it easy today, and tomorrow and this weekend, I'm scheduled to draw a ton more icons.

I've been saving up various random things to post about.

critters for sale - Stoker and Razz are saving up money for a move, and I offered to help out by offering these dieselpunk critters I drew a while ago - http://www.thestorydragon.com/adventure/characters/ - for sale. These black and white ink pictures vary in size, but were drawn three to a 7" x 10" sheet.
mdog01.jpg and mdog02.jpg are too close together to sell separately, so those are a package deal. And, two of the images are marked as already sold. Each character is $10 plus the cost of shipping. Email me at coyotepuck@gmail.com if you are interested, and I will send you payment information.

Shelterbox - Here is a cool charity that provides survival supplies to folks when disaster strikes. It's neat to see how much stuff they fit into the boxes, and to read about the work they do. And, you can donate to help fund part of a box or a whole box! (a whole box is 1,000 dollars) http://www.shelterbox.org/

Flooding - The Philippine Red Cross - http://www.redcross.org.ph/ - you can donate to help out with disaster relief.

Randomly Generated Faces - http://iobound.com/pareidoloop/ - this web thingie generates random polygons then checks them against a face detection program, then runs successive generations to come up with an entirely randomly generated face. The results are... creepy looking, so you are warned that it can go right into the uncanny valley of spooky demon faces. But, it is also really neat, and I like letting it run for a while to come up with several faces, then draw cartoon, non-creepy versions of them. It's a fun exercise!

Fear and Ideas - an article about writing and fear - http://www.magicalwords.net/david-b-coe/on-creativity-and-writing-making-the-most-of-ideas-part-ii-the-fear/

Here is a photo of Otis at work:

He is such a good-looking pup! I love his ears, so fuzzy!
