Dear Friends,

In accordance with FTC blogger review rules, I am now making myself available to review products. Please know that regardless of who sends me an item, and regardless of its monetary value, I will give my readers an HONEST PRODUCT REVIEW. Product managers, please let me know in writing if it is time sensitive for me to review your product and provide me with a clear deadline. As you know, for a freelance artist, paying work always comes first, so if I get deluged with items, the types of products I will give priority to for reviews will include the following:

  • Electronics (Tablets, videogame platforms, drawing tablets, PCs, you name it)
  • Art Products (illustration boards, canvas, pencils, paints–oils and acrylics–brushes, inks, digital art products and software, etc.)
  • Videogames
  • Software
  • Art Books
  • Comic Books
  • Sculptures
  • Action Figures
  • Toys
  • Board Games
  • Music (my preferences run to female singer/songwriters, world music, instrumental music, and Peter Gabriel/Genesis/YES-style music)
  • TV Shows/Movies (I can’t get enough foreign films, so bring ’em on!)
  • Apps (I have an iPhone 4)
  • Fiction Books (tastes run to action-adventure, horror and sci-fi, e.g. Stephen King, F. Paul Wilson, Joe Lansdale)
  • Organizational Products (think Container Store-type products)
  • Anything related to Pop Culture
  • Cooking tools and spices

Any products that I can’t or won’t keep, I will donate to the needy families of my charity, USACares.org, or to fellow artists in need. To participate in a Dave Dorman Product Review, please send your items to:

Dave Dorman, Product Reviewer

P.O. Box 417

Dear Friends,

Sorry it’s been a while, but I’ve been very busy painting. Yes, I’m working on the Dark Horse Star Wars Crimson Empire cover art, plus a ‘Droid Hunt piece for the 501st Midwest Garrison, plus I recently completed this piece below, including the logo design.

Project Description: This is book cover art for my friend, New Haven, CT Clear Channel deejay/author Vinnie Penn, who wrote a really fun zombie tale that takes place in Connecticut, my mother’s home state.

Art Direction: Denise Dorman, WriteBrain Media

Logo Design: Dave Dorman

Here are my art progressives for your perusal and comments:
