I have been uber busy the last little while. So I found this sketch I scanned in of my Grandfather and I. He was a fun guy and really good at carpentry. He wanted so bad that I like carpentry as well. To this very day I still can't remember the formula for concrete. I feel bad because he tried to teach me all about practical skills like building things... all sorts of things. I on the other hand just wanted to read Dragonlance books at the time. I know some of you feel my pain, and others are thinking "What the hell is Dragonlance?"

Dragonlance is lame but it got me into reading, I had no love for books prior to reading Dragonlance and have transitioned into reading about all sorts of subjects not just fantasy. But I do owe the Dragonlance novels a big thank you for being my gateway series into many more interesting things.

I can't remember that formula either! I know there was some gravel...maybe some sand??
Either way, nice drawing I recognized G Cal right away :)

Hi James, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at http://apatchworkofflesh.blogspot.com/ to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.
