Welcome to the NEW BLOBlog!!

You guys, loyal fans and followers. Old is new again, so now I'm necro-ing the old HeroBlog and respawning it! That's really the theme of the whole blog, and in large part of my superhero art stuff in general: what's old is worthwhile, so why not re-examine it, revamp it, recreate it anew?

So here we'll go, with a new blog full of new stuff and what it has to do with old stuff. We're just past the 17th anniversary of my creation of Cloudman, world's greatest hero and maker of clouds. Hero BLOB (née BLOB) came mere months later. I've created content for these fellows, their friends, and their worlds ever since, and there's a lot to look at!

I'll be posting either new art with descriptions of the old stuff it's drawn from or old art with descriptions of the new stuff I have planned based on it! What could be better or more self-indulgent? So hang on and stay for the ride, people. This is the stuff I create and care about, the world I live in. This is the NEW BLOBlog!
