Why are there no Illustration Textbooks? Why is illustration pretty much left out of art history books? (Especially in coverage of the 20th century?)
What do you all who teach illustration think?

Here are the results of the World Fire Sculpture Competition in Estonia. All the teams created the first sculpture in blizzard conditions. It was very harsh and when the sculptures were lit - it was snowing so hard that the flames were almost completely horizontal. I was lucky that my gear held up to the conditions and we finished building the piece in the time allowed. I posted a photo of the gear that I wore. Gunnar, who has built rooms in the Ice Hotel in Sweden had mentioned that if I could work under those conditions then I could work anywhere - like the arctic.
Wow - it seems like forever since I've checked in here - some terrific pieces that I've got to go back and spend some time with after I get out from under some assignments. Meanwhile, check out the great poster that Chris came up with for the Mini-Marathin this year:
he was kind enough to fit it into his crowded schedule on very short notice, and hit another home run, as usual! Hope everyone is staying warm and I hope to get back to being a more active participant here soon...

The guys I've been working for have started posting pages of the webcomic I've been working on. Visit carpechaos.com and click on Door to Door on the left to check it out. They'll be uploading a page nearly every day for a while. There are about 5 pages of straight up sequentials and then it changes modes to a bit more like an encyclopedia.
Anyways working on a ton of stuff. Hope to be able to announce more of it soon.

I was looking through some old files and came across this sticker sheet (1 of 10) for a Scholastic project. Lice are surprisingly fun to draw. I think I had drawn krill (And carpenter ants for that matter) for various publications a dozen times, various sizes. Maybe I will get to draw bedbugs soon since they are all the fashion.
