On the TV Star front, my art premiered on Saturday February 2nd, Search & Restore. They did a ’74 Challenger designed and rendered by me! Check out the video page. Now you can use me as a connection for Six Degrees of Separation with Courtney Hansen!
“That’s ‘Mister’ Page 24 to you!” Traditional Rod & Kulture Illustrated featured me with a 4 page spread on me and my art. It is issue #32, Winter 2013 (Orange Willys with brunette in blue on the cover). Pick up a copy where ever the koolest magazine on earth is available. Bring it with next time you are going to see me and I will autograph it for you!
Shout out to Zombie and Mike Parker – Thanks Guys!
To all of my artist friends that use and love their “Copic” markers, I want to give a review of the chinese knock-offs called “Touch” in the all black exterior. The “Touch” markers are the same shape and size, and cost about 20% (give or take) less than the name brand “Copic”.
I’ve noticed that with the “Touch” the black doesn’t cover as well, and it seems like the nibs are a bit harder than “Copic”. I have not tried the “Touch” brush tips.
My conclusion is: I’m willing to spend the extra amount on a quality product that I can consistantly count on. I’m staying with “Copic”
Okay, here’s the tip part: If price is a huge obsticle, “Hobby Lobby” carries “Copic” and they have a weekly downloadable 40% off of one item coupon. You can use the coupon as many times a week as you want, you just have to print a bunch and go in and out of the store. It’s one use per transaction., but that’s a good way to get them fairly reasonably.
As always, if you have a tip you’d like to share, e-mail me and I’ll post it and give you credit. Thanks for reading!
