STRAWMAN 2: The Art Of Craig S


Greetings programs…

I wanted to share this recent video from Craig Stuckless, the fantastic artist that created and digitally rendered the cover of my first book, as he narrates his current work, which is intended to be the cover of Strawman: Part Two. The amount of work that goes into this type of production is mind-blowing, each stroke of the stylus reminding me of my own journey of researching and putting the puzzle-pieces together to form a final work, a connect-the-dots fusion combining the labors of love, time, and energy.

This is also a grand, professional lesson, for those interested in the digital art world, of which Craig has certainly been a part of, including that crazy world of super hero comics and Comicons. Yet he also explains his own frustrations at being all but censored for trying to include truth and activism into his own work, into a lost, nihilistic, melancholic post-modern culture, and the blowback from merely speaking such heresies (truths).

It’s an interesting ride, and I thank him with all my spirit for the time and effort he puts into these works without asking anything in return.

If you’d like to make a small donation specifically for Craig’s work, now that you see what it takes and what he puts into it so freely and without recompense, I would consider it a personal favor, one that he has not asked for and that is much overdue from my end. If you feel the calling, just send a donation to me at the link to the right with a special note “For Craig” and I will forward it to him, or he does speak toward the end about his own “tip jar” found at his site. Please send some words of appreciation as well for supporting me of all people!

Thanks Craig…

And no, the book is not close to being printed yet, sorry. I’m still working on a couple other projects that I deem equally important. My mind is tired and a bit sombre, and I don’t have enough fingers. Or maybe I’m just getting old…? Argh!

    What an unexpected pleasure. The ‘tutorial’ morphed into a beautiful manifesto for the human soul that perfectly mirrored Clint’s relentless strivings. Thank you.
