Not dead or homeless yet...

Hi guys,

I know I've been totally off the map lately. A lot has happened. My Cintiq 18SX which I paid $4000 for 5 years ago totally died and I spent over a grand to replace it with a smaller 12WX and I'm a bit at a loss as to how to get NTSC video to show up properly without the screen scrolling or getting cropped. I kinda wish I could get it to show up letterboxed.

In September I'll be teaching online at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. The paperwork isn't finalized so I'm probably jinxing it by talking about it here, but it's just what I've always wanted - to be able to teach people right from my own home.

I finally seem to have put two-and-two together and gotten painting and drawing to kiss and make up and now my process has become an amazing bastard child of colour sketching. If I can get this video to properly letterbox, I'll be glad to pick up where I left off. Okay, and now to show some pictures to show you all how awesome I am (no, not really) as a preview of what'll be covered in future episodes.

I'm glad to hear that you are still doing videos! I just recently started following your videos and they are really really great. I'm in my 2nd year of college to get my Bachelors of Fine Arts, and I already find myself using your techniques when I draw.

Keep it up!

I'm also glad to see things are okay, and goodluck with the teaching.

Anyhows I see ya put ya donation thingy back on so I donated US$20, but I don't think it will go through for a few days yet cause I had nothing in my paypal account and so ya must wait for it to transfer from my bank account.

Umm, if anyone bothered to click on my name and found my website to be dead, well that is cause my domain redirection expired and I can't seem to reactivate, so I made a new one, but I'm in the process of designing a new website anyhows so nevermind. Anyhows hopefully I can get my previous domain redirection going again soon.

Awesome, an update. I love it when you update the site or post new works/videos. I had contacted you on Deviant Art, but you must be really busy because I have yet to get a response. If you have time I'd like to chat via email about some teachings and donations and such. Please email me when you get a chance.

I think I left my address in your deviant art box.
