My friends C. Lue and Angela Disharoon were kind enough to chat with me on their podcast, Creating Marvels. They are both talented artists and musicians. C. Lue is also the author of a Southern Gothic romance called Anywhere With You. The book is available on Amazon.

I’ve been busy writing for the past several months, so I haven’t drawn much. The other night, my new friend Indra asked me to draw her picture. So I did. It felt so good to draw again.
A drawing from last year.
Lately, I’ve been watching a new show called The Orville, a comedy version of Star Trek: the Next Generation. It’s one of my favorite shows now. The other night, I drew a picture of Alara, a character played by Halston Sage.
I recently drew a new cover design for Under the Electric Sun, the science fiction novel I wrote back in 2012. I was never happy with the earlier cover. Here is a photo of the new version. No, I didn’t put greasy Saran Wrap over the camera lens. I took this picture with my prepaid cellphone, a tedious little device that demands to be recharged twice a day. Sometimes, you just do the best you can.
Under the Electric Sun is available in paperback for $6. The Kindle version is 99 cents. You can click here to order.
I hope you’re enjoying the cool weather — if you happen to live in this part of the world. Have a lovely weekend.
John Hurt died today. He was 77 years old. He starred in the 5oth anniversary episode of Doctor Who. He was fantastic. He also appeared in several movies including The Elephant Man, Harry Potter, and Alien.
Happy New Year. Hope you’re doing well. A few weeks ago, I set up a new Facebook art page. The old one was called “Colored Pencil Art by Matthew Curry,” but the name became less and less accurate as time went by. During the last few years, I’ve mostly done black and white drawings in graphite pencil. Every time I posted a black and white drawing on my “colored pencil” page, I felt kind of silly. So I decided to start a brand new page, “Art by Matthew David Curry.”
I also jumpstarted my CafePress store, something I’ve neglected for a long time. I added more framed prints, posters, coffee mugs, a couple of flasks, a wall clock, and a keepsake box.
Have a good day. Talk to you later.
Here’s a picture I drew yesterday. Her name is Brandy Bailey. She and I went to school together a long time ago. She hasn’t aged a bit since then.
