Covered Blog: RIP

Hola!  I would like to take a few moments to personally thank fellow blogger, Robert Goodin, from the COVERED Blog.  He has decided to close up shop and move on to pursue other works for the time being and I want to wish him the best of luck.  

I used to go to his blog almost daily and look at all the great submissions (and even managed to get a few of my own posted) and it will be greatly missed.  I have discovered a great many other artists who's work I follow, and fellow travelers that I see on various art blogs out there ("Hail and well met!").  The blog will still be up, but no new posts will be updated.

It is weird for me to think about who all may have seen my work on his blog--there were several professionals who had their work featured and regularly dropped by the blog (Joe Jusko, for example, posted on his RIP post)... so the idea that Joe Jusko--and others who's work I greatly admire--may have actually seen some of my work fills me with both an immense amount of joy, and more than a little bit of terror to be judged by some of the greats out there.  And I could always count on a bump in traffic to my modest ol' blog whenever something of mine was posted.

There are still a LOT of covers that I would like to redo in the future, and it will be too bad that I won't have an opportunity to post them on his blog.  Oh, I'll still post 'em here, but it just won't be the same.  :-)

Queue the sad music as we walk down memory lane, here are my submissions to the COVERED BLOG:

I actually did this painting long before I knew there was a Covered Blog.  Once I found out about it, I added the logo so I could submit it.  Here's the LINK to the page on my blog.

This was the first one I did specifically for the Covered Blog.  Here's a LINK to the process I used to create the cover.

This was originally a birthday present to a friend of mine (Hey, Dave! :-).  Robert saw it on my blog and asked if he could post it on Covered.  OF COURSE!  Here is a LINK to the post on my site.

And here's a LINK to the post on my Blog.

Thanks, again, Robert!  I wish you the very best of luck, and your Blog will be greatly missed!  :-)
