The Midwest Catholic Family Conference was this weekend and the book I was commissioned to do illustrations for was being sold! Felt freaking fantastic to have it all wrapped up and done after taking so long to do 56drawingsplusacoverpage and then all the fun stuff in between. I haven't used my email that religiously in a long time. Then I remembered why, because when I'm waiting for emails, I get extremely anxious...
Anyways, here's some of my favs + the cover!

Anywho, finished these and got to work on another largish project... almost got done and then got distracted and have been aggressively doodling JA again... >.>
Going back to campus on the 20th, and am taking 18 credit hours this semester.... Got all my text books in finally, of which there are 15.... HOPEFULLY I can have enough time this semester to do some more drawing (to keep myself sane) and read through these three incredibly expensive books I invested in with some of the commission money. X'D Two volumes over the Hitler Jugend and volume 2 on a series about the history of the German Police, mainly focusing on the Third Reich era. Turns out the Police book does not touch on what I need exactly, but it's still given me some good circumstantial information so far. Looking forward to digging into the HJ books though! Hoping they will help out a lot for writing The Damned. The books are all by John Angolia, and I love how he writes. It's PURE research and information, so no bias either way. It's just the facts about the history and organization which is what I need. Only problem is, all his books are rare to find and very expensive. I have a huge list I've been stalking on amazon for whenever someone posts one for under $100. Yeah. :I
But they're quality works and I would say so far from reading, essential to my research endeavors.
That is so so soooo cool! Congratulations on being a published illustrator! WOW!
Congratulations, that is really something to be proud of!!
