well hi there my poor, neglected blog...

One of the images (still in progress) for my upcoming Circus show in February at Rothick Art Haus. I'll be posting more here over the next few weeks. Not that anybody ever looks here, but we'll see.

2 Shows coming up!!

The first one is Homegrown. I got to see the space yesterday & it was a really great gallery & there are some really wonderful pieces that I was able to see while there. Tracy Taylor is curating the show & she's been working hard to make an amazing show. Come on out to the opening & see.

The next show is at Rothick Art Haus & it's a Skate Deck Group show. This one's going to be a blast. I'm very happy with how my deck turned out & can't wait to see everyone else's. Hope to see you at both!

This is a study for a skate deck design for a Rothick Art Haus Skate Deck show coming up in April. I'll post more details later.
This is watercolor on 90lb cold press Arches paper. 30" x 7.5". I'll be selling this original in my Etsy shop later this week. I'm still fine tuning it...

New year - 3 New illustrations.

So, when I hit a slump (an artistic slump) & I can't think of anything to draw, I start looking for inspiration. Often this involves hours of looking at blogs & drawing board, drawergeeks, etc. or I'll look through art books I have or go to the library. This week I took out one of my favorites: Norman Rockwell. He was not just an incredibly talented illustrator but a great character designer. He could fill the canvas with so much emotion & feeling. You look at his characters & they are alive in this surreal, funny environment. I could never compare myself to Rockwell, but it's something I strive for in my own illustration. To craft an image that is funny, well done & triggers a feeling. I took one of Rockwell's early illustrations (Dining Out) & adapted it to my robot. After I finished that one, the ideas started flowing & I finished 2 more illos today. It works just about every time. I said this morning that Wile E. Coyote is my spirit guide. He never gives up.

This cover image is driving me crazy

Here is a rough tentative cover for the book. Still trying to figure it out. Very different direction from where I started this thought. I kind of like it but need to think about it for awhile.

Framed Robot Matador

I posted this image earlier but I've been sitting on a version of this that I wanted to hang on the wal, but I wasn't sure how I was going to do it & then I figured it out a few days ago. The background is sand & the images are cut out & glued in place.
