"Fractured #2" original painting 11"x14"

This painting started off as a cat. I couldn't make it work so I kept building and adding features. The pair of yellow eyes on the upper left quadrant were originally cat's eyes.

What's new for 2017? Hopefully more art than I produced in 2016. I took about nine months off from my life as a working artist and spent time behind at the cubicles of a local call center. After three months of that, suddenly cashiering looked like a less stressful alternative. Sales is taxing and takes a lot of energy, focus, and concentration. I needed a steady check for a while, not a career to invest my soul into.

Working at the call center left me too hallowed out and listless to paint so I switched jobs. Cashiering has only one downside: it takes up time that could be spent painting. I like the constant paychecks but I find my mind wandering. I did just fine, financially speaking, when I painted full time. The idea of taking a break had more to do with a lack of inspiration than anything.

I was no longer clear about what I wanted to make the focus of my art. I figured that taking a year off would give me some clarity on the matter. It hasn't. Nine months of working for an employer has been a nice vacation from my usual pace, but I think I'm ready to get back into the routine of working in the studio like a maniac every waking moment.

I plan to make this my final week before going back to work for myself full time. I've set aside enough money and art supplies to get me through the rest of the winter. So even if I do poorly, I won't be starving any time soon---which liberates me to think bigger and plan for better art.

Book Review: Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse

I just finished reading this awesome book by Jack Strange. It's about the zombie takeover of the world led by a former celebrity chef and Henderson, his zombified cat. I won't offer any spoilers here but I will say that it's one of the funniest books I've ever read. If you like the Evil Dead/ Army of Darkness or BeetleJuice type of humor, then you'll like this:

Editorial Reviews

"The creation of Floyd Rampant ... is quite simply a work of genius.
...special mention too should be given to the creation of Henderson, the cat turned into a vicious cat-zombie. I know, I know, the concept sounds ludicrous but believe me it works! The much neglected sub genre of Feline zombies finally gets the poster boy that its been crying out for with the rightfully creative ways in which it despatches it's human victims. Inspired writing."

"...a pretty brisk read..helped by what I'd like to call the 'Dan Brown' style of chapters... giving the reader moments to recover from some of the shocking, and at times twistedly hilarious, events of the story..."
- Fred Casden's Basement blog 12 June 2016

"You quickly empathise with characters that are in my opinion ingeniously named. For example a zombie named Floyd Rampant... Throw in some dubious unsavoury characters, a policewoman who does well not to vomit, a reverend, the P.M. and a plethora of other characters who may or may not survive and you have a book that is easy to fall into and a narrative that will make you hoot."

"Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse has some amazingly strong characters, even if some don't last as long as you'd like!...A Very enjoyable book.... 5 out of 5 gold stars. Thank you for reinvigorating a tired genre and giving me such a good read Jack!"
