these are wonderful, ben. that first oil paint is fantastic. i like the portraits of your wide too.
what a great benefit that must have been! i'm really wishing i could find a decent class here in in tampa. my figure drawing skills have flown out a 32 story window and made their way to the antarctic or something. it's definitely something you have to keep up with.

Those little circle guy shapes have been cropping up here and there. The Graphic Novel I'm fiddling with has me fiddling with the imagery and iconography for a wierd little alien culture.
I'm glad whem people appreciate the oil painting stuff. I worked hard on that
over the summer and since I haven't been painting for a few months I was starting to get discouraged. But this month I'll be starting on a new picture! Here's the basic concept:
And here's a sad, sad little boy:

I knew when you went to Europe that you were going to get a first-class result for your art. It's nice to see the results here. It really shows.
Love seeing this stuff.
Also hungry for more Zita... any plans?

Thanks Steve! I still have a long way to go... By the way, though, i stopped by your website and read your "Waves" story. I really enjoyed it. You put your finger on the way I'm sometimes tempted to think.
And there will be more Zita! Very soon too. I've gotten a good start on a long Zita story that I'll be posting online. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks. It's so cool that people still want to see the Zita comics.
