Busy, busy, busy...

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 3:12 PM
So, as mentioned in my previous journal, I find myself on the go constantly, with little time to come up for air.  Things are busy, busy, busy.  And it's nice!

I've been enjoying the summer with my kids.  I work one week, I'm off the next with the kids.  So far, this has worked out pleasantly.  I doesn't allow for a lot of time to do typical stuff, ie: surf dA as I used to, post journals, etc. as I want to, or even post deviations as I wish I could.  But, it's the summertime, and it's all about the kids enjoying themselves, so I think I'll keep concentrating there. :)

In the meantime, here's an update for those interested!!

1.)  I currently have 3 projects on the go.  I've mentioned all previously.  I'm just about caught up on all 3 ( 2 pages, 1 pinup down) which is a great feeling.  I'll show some stuff from all of them once they're all completed and on to post-production.

2.)  Brian Kesinger ( BrianKesinger ) had a colouring contest that ended recently.  My 6 year old son Josh, and 8 year old daughter Abby both entered.  I think they did pretty good!

Contest:  fav.me/d7qy192

Josh's entry:  Joshs Contest Entry by JK5-Inks and Abby's entry:  Abbys Colouring Contest Entry by JK5-Inks

3.) the-devart-comics  has an inking contest going on currently, but ending soon.  I did make a submission, so if you feel so inclined, head on over and vote for me!!...or whomever you believe did the best job. ;)

Contest entries:  can be found on their home page (click the link above)

My entry:  Triple Decker Contest Entry - inks by JK5-Inks

4.)  COLOURISTS!!!  I have two images in need of some fancy colours by some of dA's greatest colouring talents; a Weapon X piece, and a Silver Surfer/Galactus piece.  I offer NO payment for this, but I can give you the opportunity to use this image as a print for selling (or attending cons) as it was a personal commission to me (pencils) that I inked myself.  Let me know if you're interested, and if so, in which piece or both.  I'm hoping to have these coloured up over the next week or so, to allow myself time to order prints of the final image. :)

5.)  Comic Con booked:  I'm booked into Artist Alley for the Hammertown Comic Con (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada).  It's a local show, and my first with a table set up in AA, so, I'm pretty excited!  I'm hoping to have a few prints to sell, as well as lots of originals, copies of Deadly Harvest from Arcana Comics,  sketches, sketchcards, and whatever else I can find that I don't want!  Come on by if you happen to be in the area!  It's Saturday, October 4th from 10am - 6pm.

Thanks for reading, faving, looking, commenting, and being just damn cool!!

Cheers,
J

They are weekly and there's at least one of them every Sunday (sometimes later/ evening.) 

I forget if I told you about the Artcasters FB group, I pin the hangouts there as soon as I set them up.
