EMG-Zine March!

EMG-Zine is up for March - chock full of great stuff, including invaluable advice for handling business growing pains from Selina Fenech, isolating a photograph (or an element of art) in Photoshop from Melissa Findly, we've got Janet talking about making new art from old, Melissa talks about reference photographs, Giovanna introduces us to Richard M. Powers and Ursula talks about tattoos.

I also have a work of short fiction in this issue, "Pure." Comments = love.

In the 'slog' stage

I am in the slog stage. That horrible, tedious point of a piece where I'm questioning the need to space every single damn teeny little scratch of the pen so perfectly apart and the temptation to get sloppy is extreme. Enough has been inked in that I can't really brainstorm new ideas, so it doesn't feel very creative anymore. I'm sure that I'll never get that detail to look quite right anyway, and what was I thinking tackling something with transparency and WHY SPIDERS. I hate spiders...
