Merry Christmas

OK, I’ve got that out of the way. I’m listening to Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells, and it seemed like a good time to make a short post. First up, here is the wonderful present my wonderful wife got me:

This is real stained glass mounted in lead by an indie craftswoman Benita knows–freaking beautiful! […]

Story Studios–Publishing trope-twisting genre mashups since 2004

Hello, Greeting, Hola, Etc.

The title of this post, the “Story Studios…” one, is our new tag line, aka elevator pitch. I believe it pretty much describes what we’ve always produced here. The studio, and its history and mission statement, will get it’s own page soon.

My drawing board, where I draw and ink […]

Art Dump

While far from complete, this will give you a clue what I’ve been working on. Much more to come.

Suit in production Same Helmet in Production I can’t show the whole project, just some snippetsDon’t ask about the cured meats. I don’t really know either.

This is my bodysuit after I UV’d it and broke […]

Starsky and Scott

Greeting from me, my fine internet readers:

Today is an absolutely glorious Autumnal day in Indiana, and I’ve got some housework outdoors to do. First, however, I’m working on edits to the Black Dirigible, and beginning this blog. Benita is taking a nap, and so are the cats, and I’ve got a cup of hot […]

The Bionic Scott

Hello, My Friends!

This week’s blog is less about what I’ve been doing and more about my opinions on things. I’ve kept my views to myself out on the social media circuit (circus?), but this is my house, so I can be a little more open.

As for what I’ve been doing, I’ve been […]

Scott 1999

This week I’ve been making some slow progress on my body suit and helmet in Blender. Thing are not as finished as I would like them to be, but I am learning as I go. Soon I will be doing UV maps, textures, and the like. This suit will serve as the base outfit for […]

Scott (not Kolchak) the Night Stalker

Greeting, Friends, Countrymen, Blah . . . Today’s theme is printers. One of mine won’t work, and the large format one keeps jamming up. Bah. Plus, I’m told that cartridges aren’t made anymore for my old photocopier. Double Bah. This week I have gained a great deal of proficiency and training in the most […]

Happy Days with Scott

Hello, My Friends! Salutations, Hola, etc.

Friday and Saturday I spent many rapturous hours working on my novel, the Apex Killers. I had been away from it for months, and digging back in is just fantastic for me. As I told Benita, I enjoy every stage of the writing process, from dashing out the first […]

Welcome Back, Scott

For far too long social media has killed my desire to blog–I mean, why repeat myself here when I’ve posted news elsewhere? It’s a problem, because news posted on Instagram and Facebook reaches lots more people than will ever stop by here. Or, will it?

In the spirit of blogging again, I’ve got a cup […]

Things On My Mind

This has been a pleasant weekend in that I’ve gotten to work on several of my projects. Yesterday, for example, I put hours of work into the “Black Dirigible,” lettering, designing, and so forth, only to realize that there is a page missing out of the batch. Yikes!

Today, I arranged my notes for “The […]

3D Progress

I’m aware that my fascination with learning 3D art is off the beaten trail of what I normally write about, but heck, it’s all me, and it’s all about our characters.

So, I’m trying to adapt my art style to my 3D work. And, as you might guess, my standard “hero” figure is also my […]

Personal Digest of Digital Dalliance

I’m beginning to come up with some very intriguing ideas for the distribution and sale of indie comics, prose novels, and art books. it’s fair to say that I may actually be coming up with a new business model. More as this develops.
