Just a quick one…

 This year is really off to a fast start.  Hardly time to put together a post.  So many things in different directions.

I wanted to throw in this WIP real quick… a sketch for a t-shirt design.  I was in the process of painting it when I got sick last month (shudder!).  Will be posting another painting soon.  I've got to collect some photos first.

Gesture Sketch - Cold Weather

Catching Up

Alright!  To catch up on the last few months.  I really should have been blogging all this time, but I started a habit of blocking most things out to focus on work.

I reproduced a larger more complete painting of the young woman with the sword, titled "Resolve" (36" x 28" oil on canvas).  I think it turned out pretty good.  My dog was growling and sniffing it cautiously, so that has to count for something.

Also if you're in need of a larger easel, I highly recommend the Best Classic Santa Fe II (pictured above).  It's one of the most excellent purchases I've made.

There's more to come… stay tuned.

Don't grow your flowers near the Royal Stables!

A little part of an unfinished sequence of sketches. I've spent the last three months painting in oils so drawing again feels good.

I'm having fits now with this blog post auto-saving my mistakes to I'm going to publish it before I loose everything.

New Year?

Well I hope everyone had a happy holidays.  Things weren't so well for my family and me during the month of December, with flu and pneumonia I was only good for moaning and watching strange movies on the Retro Network - such as Hercules vs. the Moon Men and Teenagers from Outer Space. It can give you even stranger dreams when you have a fever, and cause people to worry when you mumble phrases like, "The light from your moon will help…"

Anyway, it takes a bit of practice using a pencil again after being down for several weeks.  So today I'm going to post some doodles to get back into blogging.  Hopefully 2011 will be a good year.

My little brother had an idea to draw huge shirtless musclemen with magic swords and helmets so that's what we did for a few days, until I moved on to the Hulk and Telly Savalas (just to explain some of this).

 Then there's the Hulk! (Lou Ferrigno)

This sketch came from me wondering why no one figures out that David Banner is the "creature," even if they're handcuffed to him during his transformation.  I don't wish ill on David, but it's kinda frustrating seeing people be so stupid.

Well this is the end of my senseless post.  I'll be back soon to talk about what's been going on these months I've been a slow blogger… I mean that now!
