So whatever happened to Entropy Gate - Beyond?

It's still there...or here...or whereever...but it is alive and kicking...I know, I know, I had said that it would be ready in Dec. 2003...well, that was before my job description EXPANDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Regardless, I am working towards re-editing EG-Journey and that will be quite the task. But what about all of us who are dying to know what happened to Michael, Silla, Mitchum and Derek? Hold fast...I'm working on a way you can get BEYOND without buying the calm, wait...check out the recent artwork on the main web page...

Vacation is over...

And though it was theoretically four weeks long, the contract stated that we were to return on the 2nd. However, I was already back and had spent the first week of the vacation painting backdrops for someone else's musical...Smokey Joe's Cafe.

Consequently, due to the backdrops and some last minute student registration I had to do, I did not get my drawing to the level I wanted it to be at. We had to have the work into the gallery by 5:00 on Thursday...I got there right at 10 till. Needless to say, some people (who shall remain nameless) were given extensions and were allowed to bring their art work in at a much later date...hmmm...

Anyway, there is a beginning sketch called ICON on the sketchbook page of the gallery. I'll post an image of the finished piece along with an explanation later this week.
