Dragonbones and Rusted Armor

Fantasy art, life, and a little taste of your run of the mill insanity...


Inktober and NaNoWriMo

Patch
I think I consumed too much coffee today.
I'm all over the place.

So I think I'll post this here and think about it for a while, get some feedback, and come back to it later.

Anyway - here's what I'm currently thinking about (well, one of the things I'm thinking about in a steady stream of rapid/random thoughts and ideas):

In addition to my paid illustration work and the free portraits that I've been doing, I think that this year I want to take part in both Inktober and NaNoWriMo. The one would feed into the other.

I want to work out an outline for a Patch story I've got floating in my head - specifically how a young Patch becomes a vigilante and choses to continue down that path as a means of releasing the Beast while reducing the damage that causes to innocents. I would work out that outline in the next week or so.

That, in turn, would give me a list of locations and characters in the book. Which I could then draw for Inktober.

Then, I could write the book in November as part of NaNoWriMo. As I'm writing, I would post to dragonbones.net and it would be available for everyone to read - in its alpha form. Then, if I'm smart and still have enough drive/sanity left, I could edit in December and be ready to publish (likely self published) in January.

Yeah, it sounds crazy ambitious to me too.

It sounds downright naive, in fact.

I still wanna do it.

Working on MrLich.com

For a long time, I've wanted to have a simplified web presence. Trying to tell folks where to find me online has become problematic.

"Oh, you'd like to see my artwork? Go here. My blog? Oh, that's over here. Yeah, I'm on facebook, but not on snapchat. Etc. etc. etc."

The answer, of course, is a single site to point to everything. A while back, I picked up mrlich.com. I have to say that I was kinda surprised that such a short url was available which made it even better. I couldn't really use something like mattlichtenwalner.com because then I would have to go through spelling Lichtenwalner every time. MrLich. It's unusual enough that I can usually get it for my userid on most sites, so a lot of folks already think of me that way - like a good nickname.

Anyway, I settled on a WordPress install - which is kinda overkill given what the site is, but I really like the theme that I'm using and it works great as a simple menu. Now, I'm just working on the images that are used in the menu.

Check it out. Let me know what you think.
