Here are a few pictures I took while painting my last video game painting from Zelda III! I think the next one I’ll do will be similar in size, for the original Metroid.
Welcome to the new Stephenemond.com! Thanks to my site designer Lissa Pattillo for getting this up and running and coming up with the design! I recommend her services!
This is something I’d been wanting to do for a while, I wanted to clean up and organize my site. The old site was beginning to feel like a messy apartment, to the point that I didn’t want to do anything in it anymore. When I saw the job Lissa did on fellow artist and writer Faith Erin Hicks’ site, I knew I needed to upgrade, fast.
There were a number of problems to address. Like for one, my autobio comic LEMONS that I’ve been doing since March of 2010 was barely mentioned on the site. Something I’d spent a lot of time doing all year was virtually invisible. Anyone who’d read HAPPYFACE and came to see what else I’d done would have to work really hard to figure it out. Faith’s site had it all laid out, here’s what I’m working on. Here’s what I’ve done. Here’s all the info you need for all things me. That’s what I needed!
So here we are, it’s a new year, which is always a good time for change. There’s a new bio up in the About section, there’s new and cleaner pages for all of my projects at the top of the page, so click around those and check them out. Check out the site directory to make sure you don’t miss anything, and see some links to other sites I recommend. I’ll make a much stronger effort to blog here fairly regularly, I’ve got a few topics stockpiled now. I haven’t written much here in months, waiting to redo the site. My goal is to have a real non-art blog update once a week, with intermittent art or smaller updates as well.
So take a look around, let me know what you think! And post your thoughts here as you come back or find you have anything to say on any of my posts, it gets lonely talking to myself!
Oh, and be sure to follow me on twitter and facebook too so you don’t miss out on anything. My second book WINTER TOWN is getting closer to release and I’ll be embarking on my third book, so there’s plenty to talk about. This should be a fun year!
