July Newsletter

Hey Everybody!



Welcome to my July newsletter. It's summer, and, here in Atlanta, it is REALLY REALLY hot. For a couple of days, we have hit the highest ever recorded temperature. The good thing about that is that I'm spending more time inside trying to stay cool and working on some experimental images.


June Wrap-Up


So, some things from the past month:

For June, I completed eight new works including two additions to my rather popular pig series. I also completed two new ZBrush models - a couple of monsters, both of which can be already be seen in my gallery (and below in this news letter). I've been reading H.P. Lovecraft stories a lot. So don't be surprised if a few more horror themed works find their way into my gallery in the coming weeks.

Also, sales in June went surprisingly well for typically slow summer season. In fact, I have a new top seller: Dodo Afternoon has replaced The White Buffalo as my most sold print.

A quick list of June's releases:

Bad Influence
Rough Crowd of the Farmyard
Deep One
Short-faced Bear and Saber-Toothed Cat
Crab Dance
Smoking Dwarf
Pigs After A Storm
Megaloceros Giganteus


Looking ahead



Coming in July, you will be able to really see how much I'm preoccupied with dreams of a beach vacation. I have two beach themed works in post production now. Furthermore, I have a whale themed image on the way as well, though, it's not in the typical sense you might imagine. It should also be no surprise that I have another pig themed image in production, too. Finally, for the paleoart fans, you can look forward to a dinofelis image towards the end of the week.


Thanks everyone!

June Newsletter

June 1st, 2012

Welcome to my June newsletter. This is actually my first such publication. Though I've had my artist website up for a few months now, it was only in May that I started getting folks that signed up for my email blast in large numbers. I also created a fan page on Facebook a few days ago, to which I'll also be posting this as well. I'll be putting this on my DeviantArt journal, too. So if you follow me in more than one of those places, please don't feel too spammed.

May Wrap-Up


So, some things from the past month:

I completed a new model in ZBrush, this one is a crab. I've already got one artwork published featuring it, and I have two more on the way for June/July.

I was interviewed by a site called "Something We Like". They tell me that the interview is to be posted on June 2 here: http://www.somethingwelike.com/inspirational/chitchat-daniel-eskridge

I started a fan page on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/TheArtOfDanielEskridge

I published seven new works, two of which ("The Buffalo Vanguard" and "The Sea Witch") were, by my standards, wildly successful, each getting thousands of visitors in the first 24 hours of publication. I think I was definitely dreaming of a vacation to the coast this month as four of them are set on the beach:

The Buffalo Vanguard
Sea Monster on the Beach
Sea Breeze Butterfly
Frontier Widow
The Swineherdess
The Crab's Aquarium
The Sea Witch


Looking ahead


I have a few images in the works already for June. For you paleoart fans, my Irish Elk model is going to make an appearance in my first work to be published this month, and, later in the month, you can look forward to an image featuring a short faced bear. I have another work featuring my crab model that is in post production and should be out in the first week or so of the month. Also, I am making a foray into a genre I don't usually work in, that of Horror -- the result of sleepless, high-fever night I had this past week. So look for a H.P. Lovecraft themed work probably towards the end of the month.

One of my works is in today's issue of Der Standard, an Austrian newspaper. It is an illustration in the science section. Here is a link to the online version: a Im Takt der Temperatur.
