Jim's Painting on Cover of UFO Magazine

Jim's painting, done from a sketch he made of me in 1977, is the cover for the current issue of UFO Magazine. The drawing he did is over thirty years old, but he kept it, and about three years ago, did this painting.

I was wearing exactly what's painted here, reading on the deck of a friend's house who lived on the McKenzie River in Oregon. (Can you spot the UFO in the painting? :)

You can subscribe to the magazine, or find it at bookstores like Barnes and Noble. In my area, (Eugene, Oregon) hard to find on news stands, but for some odd reason Winco carries it.

Novel: "Product", podcast

Just to let everyone know James is still painting, and his paintings are available at the site.

Some of his works are on display right now in his employer's new offices! Very nice.

But James, aside from his painting career, is also a writer, and has been devoted to working on his novel -- tentatively titled Product -- for the past few months. It's a sci-fi (sort of) novel, but not outer space sci-fi, more of a conspiracy/suspense/ kind of novel. Think Robert Anton Wilson, a bit of Dean Koontz, . . .

Aside from all that, James will be a frequent co-host at Regan Lee's new podcast venture: Cafe Esoterica. That will be coming in the next couple of months; more information as things develop in that area. (James' painting The First Nano-second will be the podcats visual for the banner, etc.)

Still Painting

Not much to report, but the studio is still going strong, and in fact, have recently sold a painting! My day job moved to a new locale, and they've very kindly have displayed some of my paintings there.

Aside from the artwork, I've been working on a novel; the format includes artwork. Much more on that later, but most of my time lately has been devoted to the novel.

Monoprint Gallery

This is another new gallery up at the Yessy site. It's a monoprint gallery, but not the same as the collage monoprint gallery. These are monoprints, but paintings, not collages.
