2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 7,400 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.

Who is the Red Menace?

This is a quick speedpaint I did of the hero from the new men’s adventure series, The Red Menace, by James Mullaney. If you haven’t read them yet, I highly recommend you check the series out, it’s excellent retro fun and full of great wit.

Just trying my hand at painting a vintage pulp book cover. This was several hours of work in the Gimp spread over several days. I used the "Feel the Heat" setting on the "Modern CinemaFX" filter in G’MIC to punch the colour up a hair.
