A quick lil' bloggy update since the old one' getting might stale and is starting to attract flies…  I'm not one who keeps their finger to the pulse of my DA stats, but I just checked in out of curiosity and I'm up to over 2300 watchers! WOW! I'm tickled and honored… but talk about performance pressure??!?! ;)  Seriously, these are even higher audience numbers than when I worked with publishing back with Digest Group Publications. It really is pretty neat that DA has enabled me to create such an audience. Thank you all for your support and (as always) your great conversations through feedback!

I just found out that my friend and writer, Allen Steele, has dedicated his next book to me. I've been published enough that the thrill's worn off, but I don't think I ever had a book dedicated to me before! I guess it pays to visit your pals when they're in the hospital with pancreatitis… ;p Allen's next book is an expansion of his short story, "Goddard's People", which details an alternate WW2 history in which the battle is taken to the edge of space. It should be published next year, about this time.

On the Yamato 2199 front (for fellow fans), the next batch of four episodes should be rolling out relatively soon. As always keep your eye peeled to the OurStarblazers site www.ourstarblazers.com/ for great news and updates. I also heard the rumor that the series has been optioned for US DVD release as "Starblazers 2199". I hope that's good news…. though I remain uncertain until I read official details.

In the past few weeks I've been working with my partner-in-crime, Tom Peters (aka Drell-7) on another cooperative modeling project. www.deviantart.com/art/RangerR… It's been a blast and we're both pretty psyched with the results to date, so… if you don't have Drell-7 watched already, you'd be advised to do so! ;)

I always said I'd make a great art agent for him… :lol:

That's pretty much it for now. Thanks again for your attention (I wonder if I could double my watcher count by wearing a squirrel costume?) and here's some cool art from other wonderful DA artists to check out… if you haven't already. Click the thumbnails to enpixelify the images!

Arcas, you're one of the shining lights on DA. Why are you surprised?

"Shining light"? Me? Well.... I'm flattered, but I guess I just don't see myself in that role. There are SOOOOOOO many great artists here!

Congratulations, sir! You have the talent and the wide-ranging interests to bring together the sophisticated aesthete and the slavering pervert. Though I daresay the aesthetes could do without the slaver-coated floors.

Fantastic and totally deserved. Was a fan of your work for decades, long before meeting you here and even knowing your name. Turns out some of my artist friends in the trade know you (or have at least met), so that's doubly cool. It's been an honor seeing your work over the years and the wonderful wealth of images you have here :)

I really is nice to know that my art has stuck with folks over the years. I guess it's a bit like ending up in a book of famous quotations!? ;)

Wow~ Congratulations! I am very happy for you. Both for the amount of watcher / fans that you have here on dA (which you really do deserve) and for the event of having a book dedicated to you (which I am sure you deserve, also. Visiting a sick friend in the hospital is a wonderful thing to do.

p.s. I would open a new account and add you to my 'watch list' just to add another watcher to your account if you DID dress in a squirrel costume! But, I would have to see some really well done photos as proof that you dressed up in the costume before I did. :evillaugh:

You have a love of visual perfection, peppered with skill, and a fair amount of talent. 2300 seems a bit low to me, but what do I know? You gotta start somewhere, eh? =D

Seriously, you seem to have found the "magic make art button."

Keep on Trekkin' !!! ;) [link]

2300 Watchers? And you are surprised?

I am not!

Why?

Because you are an artist that has earned respect; your art is imagination and joy; it is always a pleasure to come here and see your works because they are not pretentious, self centred, or vile; its welcoming like a good friend.

One cannot buy respect - its earned - and rightly so :D
