Tony Fleecs' New Blog - New art every day!

Hey Garage Art-keteers! Tony Fleecs here with a story.

About a year ago this month I was broke-- really broke and I did one of the dumbest/most popular things I've ever done. I went online and offered commission sketches on 3x5" cards for $3. The response was amazing. I received hundreds of sketch orders and I was able to pay my ridiculous Hollywood rent for a couple of months. I worked tirelessly on the cards for as long as the money lasted and then-- I had to move on to new work to pay the next rent. The plan was to keep drawing the cards full-time while I worked on all my other stuff... That plan was also stupid and failed almost immediately.

So for the past few months I've worked on all kinds of stuff and haven't been able to time manage myself enough to get any of these cards done. And I've disappointed all the people who saved my butt all those months ago.

Well- I'm doing something about it. I can't stop working on my real jobs but I can do at least ONE of these cards per day. At least, that's the plan.

1 a day. 1 sketch drawn and posted every day for hundreds of days-- or until I reach the end of this enormous list.

Come along on this journey with me, won't you?

1 a day. sketchblog.

ps. Also- in case you were wondering, of course I'm not taking any new $3/6 sketch requests at this time.

 has been some time
since my last blog, and so much has happened. I'm currently working on a few books, a couple of new SIMPSONS stories, and all sorts of good stuff.

The current Simpsons story is for this year's TREE HOUSE OF HORROR, its a story written by LEMMY of MOTORHEAD, i have already
done the thumbs and just started working on the pages its a great short story, i also have another short for this spring, so i have a bunch of Simpsons Art to get to.

One of the things I'm very excited about is ShadowHawk RESURRECTION! I have been waiting a long
time to draw a Super-Hero book and i'm happy to say that ShadowHawk gets to be my first Super-Hero book. you can see some advanced pages in the March Issue of PREVIEWS, i was surprised to see my ISSUE ONE cover art all over the magazine. it was a HOOT!!! If we can add some pictures on this post i will.

The studio is busy, both Tony and Chris are working hard on their various projects, and Lauren is hard at work on making arrangements for my birthday get together later this week. Yeah another year goes by and the end of the first week of March marks the beginning and the end of my year. Anyways I know it's only taken you about five minutes to read this, but I've been sitting in front of this computer for well over an hour, so maybe ill save something for next weeks with you later.

Zombie Dickheads interview in Imagine Magazine!

Not long after I posted Zombie Dickheads art here, on DeviantArt and on Facebook, my pal Melanie Jordan over at Imagine Magazine was dying (no pun intended) to learn everything she could about the project, and sent me over an interview! You can read it here!
