I’ve been busy. Insanely busy. I’ve had a number of commissions, some of which I’m working on now. One of them is for a book on 3D, which is cool. I get paid for it and get a copy of the book too. I have more commissions I’m working on, but I’ll admit I’m having a blast doing it.
Since the cat is out of the bag and running about on the web, I can post this; I was involved with concept art for Jupiter Ascending. Movie concept art pays very well, I will say. Link to some of the details below, though I cannot post the art or really talk about it. Not yet anyway.
The movie is a project from the Wachowskis, creators of the Matrix trilogy and others. I was hired to create some of the concept art by John Gaeta; this was not something I bid on or anything like that. Admittedly it was a lot of pressure, but it was a great experience. I would definitely do it again. Hopefully one day I will, and until then, I have lots of commission work.
I have some more work to do on my new website, artbymel.net. I’m planning to add a client section for my commission clients. Hopefully I’ll be able to work on that this week; it should only take a few minutes to setup. Then I can add the pages at my leisure.
Plus I’m watching my granddaughter as much as 4 times a week. Though this month, it won’t be as often. Yea, I’m busy, but it’s great to be busy.
