This is Tranya.. I hope you relish it as much as I!

Pity I've not done a whole lot I can show yet this year, but while I have a couple days, I wanted to post a couple simple process pics, and tip ayebody a nod for the Nerdliest New Year ever!  =)  Pam made a couple bottles of Lemoncello this year, and I sketched a quick digital piece for the label, so I made it my Holiday Card as well..  After all, there's nothing that spells the Holidays more than gnomes in funny hats, squeezing lemons in inappropriate and disturbing ways, right?  =)

Okay.. everyone say, nostrils!

I also wanted to at least start painting on a set of illustrations, something like the old school liquor and cigarette spreads from the 70's based on OS StarTrek, to coincide with the new film, but this conceptual sketch and logo design is all that made it into existence thus far.  For those of you who know me, I've been talking about this for years, and after seeing a couple Trek based Gallery shows across the country, I could perhaps at least make some T's for the next Trek in the Park here in Portland?  =)  MadMen like sleaze?  I sure hope so, but there will be a hunky cigarette man as well, and I just can't wait to start painting them.  Hopefully 2013 is the year. =)

Have the very Happiest and Healthiest of New Years everyone!  Sorry I didn't get to meet you guys in Altoona, but I hope to get to know everyone a bit better this year.. =)
