Here she is! My girl! My little Jessie, she is now about 2 weeks old. Isn't she a sweetpea?

At 9 pounds 6 ounces she was a big girl! Sorry mommie! On her second day she was already lifting her head up to get a look at her mother! Not failing to thrive I'd say.

And here's all of my progeny to date. They are sleeping for now, but soon they will awaken and the world will know it's MASTERS!

On a less momentous note here is some more stuff from that previously mentioned UNNAMED project!

This is a guy that's been nixxed as far as I know. He was designed by Carey Yost, and drawn by Marc Colangelo. As before I just did the coloring.

When I first started on the show I was given free reign and was allowed to build some set miniatures for the production. This place is called the Haunted Palace. The building is made out of foamcore and paper. The stop lights are made of coffee stirrers, plastic drink straws and paper.

Here's a better look at the stop lights.

I put everything together with hot glue.

Here are a couple of preproduction paintings I did for the show. I'm so sorry that it hasn't seen the light of day yet. The crew on it, that Doug Lawrence got together, was amazing; Lynne Naylor, Chris Reccardi, Chris Battle, Chris Mitchel, Craig Kellman, Miles Thompson, Justin Thompson, Jim Smith, Bob Jaques, Bill Wray, just to name a few! This thing should have been out years ago.

This one's about 5 inches tall by 3 and a half inches wide

Small marker comps

The flash from my camera destroyed this one.

Thanks for waiting, but as you can see things have been hectic around here.

p.s. does hectic refer to hecate? I would love some etymological info on that if anyone can share.

Congrats on the new kiddo! Someday when she is older and has a family of her own, she can take your place in waiting for the UN-NAMED PROJECT to be released, as will her children, and her children's children....
