The Pez™ Dispenser of Doom...

I'm not sure where this drawing was going initially, but once someone made the comment about it "kinda looking like a Pez dispenser" was out on the table...that's exactly where it went.

A Bright Idea...

All in the flick of a wrist...

I dabble in Cartooning...

I've never been good at the type of abstraction needed for high end least I don't think I am. Nevertheless, it's never stopped me from playing...

Just a Peek...

A study I did for a painting that will be a part of the series I'll be showing in September. Corvus Corax.

"A Simpler Time...."

Simply put, I enjoyed this photo I scanned of my great-uncle Earl, and so I sketched it. It can't get much more direct than that.

80K is a Whole Lot of Demons...

Doing research into other things I came across the image and story of Zhong Kui, the Chinese ghost hunter. I had seen prints of the Japanese version of him before, but hadn't before seen him identified along with the tale of how he came to be. I believe I was looking at info on pomegranates, but even mentioning that is a potential digression. Anyhow, with my trusty brush pen I tried to approximate the unique marks that both flow and have sharp angles that Chinese artist employ in ink drawings. It didn't exactly come out...but I also realized, I wasn't working on a huge scroll of paper with a 2 foot long Sumi-style brush...that might have had something to do with it.

Ah...It's Been Too Long, My First Love...

Well, I've let this lie fallow long enough methinks. Don't for a moment think that I've not been drawing.

I've done plenty.

I even got paid to do it for half a week.

But I've neglected the scanner, and my duty to post. Alas.

That will all change soon enough. I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on the paintings I'm trying to complete for my featured spot in a show in September. I've been thinking of putting a book together of my favorites of these...something I'll need to do quick as my desire to look at and/or show old work diminishes quickly. I need to get some ideas together for some shirts I'd like to design. And so, this, my first blog must cease to have life breathed into and continue to thrive.

Sort of like my long neglected deviantart page...I still don't know what to do with it.

And so, I shall return!
