Phizzel Goblin Scratchboard: whew! I am calling this one done. Phizzel Goblin is done, reworked and completed. I believe that I have learned quite a bit on this one. Hopefully it will aid me in my next attempt whenever that is. . I am going to submit this and the clown scratchboard (see october 16th 2007 posting)
as entries into a couple of illustration competition annuals this season to see what comes about. If nothing else... it was good learning and a whole lot of fun to do.

Obrigado assim muito. Se você tiver um local que tenha seu trabalho nele, deixe-me sabem assim que eu posso fazer exame de um olhar. Eu amaria vê-lo.-db

Thank you so much. If you have a site that has your work on it, let me know so I can take a look. I would love to see it.-db

Doug. Buddy. I love it. I think you should submit it as a threadless shirt. white on a black shirt. I'd buy it.

Thanks Bryan, I may just look into that. I would probably take it out of the rectangular box format though, right? Make it vignette? Dunno.

I remember you learning this technique and I've always admired it as well of course as your technique and comfort/confidence with it. I certainly don't know all the fancy technical terms but I'll tell ya I'd be afraid I'd sneeze.... Incredible.

Thanks Contessa, just when I am ready to put it away for a while, someone shows me a variation on the theme... and that itch to try and apply locks on. Barry Mosier illustrated a version of the King James Bible in 1999. His wood cuts and designs make me want to work and learn so much more. Got a copy for Christmas this last year and I still haven't put it away. What a legacy to leave. He has done so much.
