I have 8 things on my list and even more than that to do, several of which are due soon. But I am not being able to draw or paint anything...So I am trying to do something, anything to get me working again. This is an idea for the cover for my Sons of the Sea book. Just an idea, very early on in the process.

New Book Cover Ideas

OK, even though I have not sold even one copy of my Faerie book yet, I am working on my next book. This one is Mermen, and I am calling it Sons of the Sea. I have started a new picture that if it comes out might be what I use for the cover. But these two are pictures I already had done that I thought of for the cover originaly. So I would like to get feedback from anyone reading this on which you think works best as a cover.

Finaly Some New Art

Well, I am not completely happy with it, but it is done. The person who commissioned it likes it (with small reservations). So Here is a two character Japanese Print style picture for . 7 x 14, Micron marker, Acrylic, watercolor colored pencil on Bristol. Picture 43.

When I Die

(I am posting this just so there is no question about my wishes after I am gone. With the recent passing of my mother and my current physical conditions I thought it might be good to have my wishes known!)

I want a Green Funeral; there are places that will do this. Green as in all natural, no preservatives, a cheap biodegradable coffin and I want to be able to actually decompose into the earth as we were meant to do.

I DO NOT want a Christian Funeral! I want NO hymns, NO priest or minister (unless they are pagan or Buddhist or some other NON Christian type).

If Don has died before me, I want to be next to him if he is in a green cemetery and biodegradable. If I die before him I want to be buried where he can be next to me after he dies. I want everything I own to go to Don, he can do what he wants with it. I want NO flowers; I would like people to plant a tree or lilac bush in my memory instead. They can plant these anywhere they want. Living, positive, natural things are what I want as a memorial instead of cut flowers that will quickly fade!

(There is more but those details can be found on my computer when the time comes under the word directory Tristan/funeral.)

Eye Troubles

Well, as of my birthday (Sept. 10) my eyes have gone all funny...I used to need glasses to read and do art but seeing distance things was fine. NOW I can't see past about 5 feet before everything goes very blurry but I can read the computer screen better without the glasses. I hope to get to an optometrist soon and find out what the heck is going on!

More, Better Said Than Mine

If You started flying a flag after 9/11 READ THIS

Just some of what I have know since I was a child and for all those FAKE Patriots who started flying the flag after 9/11 and do so with NO respect!

9/11 The Day America Died

Al-Qaeda won on 9/11, if you doubt it just look at how far America has fallen since the attack 10 years ago! We have spent Trillions on 2 wars that we have no end in sight to. We are bankrupt because of paranoia, war and policies put in place out of fear! Bush was allowed to do terrible things in our name and without any real opposition because of 9/11. It has been and still is the big boogie man...10 years later and we have done NOTHING to move on. We cower in fear and waste our money and time and lives fighting the ghost of 9/11.
Al-Qaeda has won, America is finish unless we move on, stop spending Trillions on war and stop being afraid of another attack!

Finaly Something New I hope

OK, I was commissioned to do a sign for a guy who does Bow and Arrow stuff in the SCA. His Company is Viking Archery Supply. He had a vision of what he wanted and this is what I came up with from his vision. This is 11 x 6 1/2 Acrylic and watercolor colored pencil on Canson board. The lettering was added in paintshop and this will be made into a small vinyl banner for him to use.  Fisnished IF he says he is happy with it. Picture 42.
