One of the bugs on my site does not allow me to change my 'Sales & Auctions' page, so I'll put this here for the meantime.
I am no longer accepting private commissions, nor will I be setting up a waiting list. Between industry painting and the backlog of work I owe to current clients, I just don't have the time or energy. (And I do really like to paint something for myself more than once a year, too!) Should this change, I'll certainly let everyone know. I appreciate your understanding.

PAINTING VIDEOS AVAILABLE
With eBay taking an ever-increasing cut of sales, I'd hoped to have a shopping cart up on the site by now, but a couple of bugs need to be fixed first... But anyway, I have both the Dark Sword and CMON DVD sets available. (See previous news entry for prices and details.) Drop me an e-mail and I'll send an invoice. Payment can be made through PayPal with either a PayPal account or a major credit/debit card. Free first class shipping in the US, $6.00 international. Happy to sign your copy on request, of course!

COMPARISON: DARK SWORD VS CMON TUTORIAL
And the Most frequent question(s) lately: So what's the difference between the Dark Sword and CMON videos? Which should I buy?
Both the DS and CMON videos are designed for painting character minis individually or in small numbers. Efficient tabletop army painting requires a different approach and different techniques, which aren't really covered here.
Both the DS and CMON videos have about the same proportion of basic techniques to advanced techniques, as far as I can estimate. We go through exactly the same prep and beginning steps in painting a 6 hour gaming figure as a 30 hour ... (more)

FIRST REVIEWS ON TMP
Some early comments about the Dark Sword painting DVD are up on The Miniatures Page (click on comments to read).
I've received a lot of questions about this video, so here's some more about it.
Yes, it does include a lot of basic information. First, currently there's not a big market for very advanced-only tutorials. I frequently teach people who do not know how to assemble or prime a miniature--or who are having trouble doing so and don't know why. There are 'beginner' guides, both online and in publications, which take a... (more)

TRY IT--YOU'LL LIKE IT! (PROBABLY.)
Well, I'm proud and excited. Tomorrow my guy's first novel, I, Demon
will be available as an e-book through Amazon. Plenty of sex and violence with a dark, dry humor throughout. If you like the works of John Scalzi and Neil Gaiman, you just might enjoy this.
AUGUST 1, 2011
Heading off to GenCon Indy this weekend (along with about 30,000 other crazy gamer types). You can catch me at the CoolMiniOrNot booth (#849) in the Exhibitors Hall, where I'll be hanging out and doing some demo painting. There will be some new paint jobs from me in the CMON and Dark Sword (#1325) booths. And maybe even a painting contest entry, if I get enough work done tonight... ;-)
