Studio progress - drywall

A little panoramic shot

We're ready for paint now!  This should start moving along quicker.  I'm thinking I'll have it finished before Christmas if all goes well.

Green Eyes

    Here's a quick digital sketch I did the other day.  I've been told over the last couple weeks that I draw "dippy, doe-eyed" girls, and in less harsh words have had it confirmed by others.  Whoa!  I always thought they just looked spirited!

Portrait progress (unfinished)

    I've made some progress on a portrait of Pope Francis commissioned for the North American College in Rome.  This is roughly two days work which is encouraging.  I'll need to have it completed by the end of next week so it can be shipped before December.

Cover Work

    For the last couple of weeks I've been working with designer and illustrator Ciara Gay on some covers for an upcoming series of books with Simon and Schuster.  It's been an interesting challenge especially since the two characters featured are identical twins.

    The covers were done digitally in Photoshop with the layers on top of the detailed drawing.

Shoutin' Cowgirl

No one shouts louder!

Drew this a long time ago after reading an article on horse training.  Unfortunately I've resorted to digging through my piles of paper for drawings to post.
