Sunday Thoughts Dale Arden

Sunday Thoughts

It’s after 2 p.m. on Sunday. I’m still in my PJ’s sketching out illustrations for my next pulp novelette. The story is at the editor’s.  I’m planning a late Spring release. I’ve just gotten another 5 star review for Landscape of Darkness  and it’s wonderful! (Thank you kind people!!) I have a big release schedule […]

Book Signing at the Lewis County Historic Museum

The book signing season is upon me, that is to say, I have two new books and one 2nd edition, all heading out to public events within the next month or so. Tonight, I was at the Author’s Night at the Lewis County Museum in Chehalis. This was the second outing for Our George Washington […]

Preliminary Book Cover Designs

I’m very old school. Back in the day you never shared preliminary, or unfinished book artwork. Your art director or book publisher simply wouldn’t allow it. Today, of course, things are different. Everyone shares everything they can, especially works-in-process. To be completely honest, doing so gives me nervous knots. But that’s ridiculous. It’s time to […]

A New Space Opera is Born

Well, it’s a book! And not just any book but a novelette. Novelettes run in length between short stories and novellas, in other words, perfect bite-sized reading stories. They were a big hit back in the mid-twentieth century in the magazines. Anyway, it’s a book! And not just any book but an illustrated, pulp-style, space […]

There’s an unfinished fifteenth in my files called, The Great Retrograde Race. It’s about a championship cup race through the solar system […]

From Fat Ponies to Rocketships Pony marker-test

From Fat Ponies to Rocketships

I’m a brick-and-mortar type of artist; I like non-digital tools for drawing and painting. So right now my desk is a disaster! It’s mess of pens, markers, pencils, tracing paper, and brushes. I keep knocking things to the floor when I’m working. It’s distracting! It’s always been that way for me. Even back in the […]

Testing a spaceship sequence Spaceship sequence

Testing a spaceship sequence

This is an design sequence I’m working on as part of a promotion for my upcoming book release. It’s pretty simple at this stage but I thought I’d post it here, instead of at Flying Pony Studios blog, as all the book materials (and final artwork) will be shown through this website. To the stars! […]
