Two -- count 'em -- TWO art posts in a row! ... Don't worry. I won't make this a habit.

This is straight up 2B pencil on smooth bristol. Chapter one sample illustration for the book I'm working on:

Also, a photo of me and my l'il bumpkin from a day ago:

Sure is dusty in here. Phew! Hi, whoever is poking their heads in here. I am still alive, actively updating my twitter account (of course!). Don't worry, you haven't missed much. I only started tweeting a couple weeks ago.

I have finally gotten around to uploading a drawing, and here it is! It is a china marker study for a larger piece I plan on doing. I really enjoyed using the china marker, it is very forgiving. :)

Those are all characters in my latest book project (except the demons are kind of random). Yes, the dolphin is included! I really love drawing them and they're so much fun to write. I'm still tweaking and perfecting my manuscript before sending it anywhere, so don't hold your breath! It'll still be a long while before it sees the light of day.

In other news, our son Juni is doing great. He is now 4.5 months old, and his personality is really starting to show. He's curious, very observant, and likes to be with people. Maybe all babies are like that, but this is what I've noticed about him! You can see recent pictures of him on the flickr account I share with Kazu, if you'd like.

Obviously, I won't be updating this website all too often. I still want to give the whole thing an overhaul. I even have a design set up! But finding the time between writing my book project and taking care of Juni in order to update my website is unrealistic.

For now, please add me if you use twitter (username: @Merofi), and I will continue to post sketches when available. See you there!
