Ellipses was a promotional book i put together in 2009 to see if comics were something i could realistically do.  I abandoned naturalist oil painting and summoned dormant drawing and storytelling skills to create a cute little 13 page comic, and then i spent an UNBELIEVABLE amount of time and money printing those books on Stonehenge printmaking paper (that i coated for inkjet printing myself) and bound them by hand.  Only 25 of those books exist in the world, so if you have one please PLEASE take good care of it!

Two paintings from the Ellipses promo book were accepted into Spectrum 17, and i can't even begin to describe how absolutely gratifying that was.
