My brother Mark asked me to do a Facebook avatar for him a while back. Well, I finally finished it!

This is something a little new for me. I've been wanting to loosen up a bit, so I did this without any pencil rough, just starting straight out with a brush and some paint.

Frankie's in Love

Well, this is a week late, but this was for Drawergeeks. I finally got my drawing desk cleaned off and can work again.

Betty and Veronica

At last I've done a new Drawergeeks. I really need to get back into the swing of things with this blog! I did this one pretty quick, Betty and Veronica in their late middle age.

Mom, I've been published!

This is so cool. Walt Stanchfield was the best, most inspiring life drawing teacher I ever had. He had been at Disney forever and was already a legend by the time I met him. He knew how to criticize your work without making you feel like you're a crappy artist and should never pick up a pencil again. His goal was to make your drawings feel alive, like real living characters instead of dead anatomy lessons. It makes sense since he was so full of life and joy himself.

One of the things that Walt did each week was to give us handouts with tips, examples, quotes, etc., to help inspire us. He would often include students' drawings as examples and this is one of mine that made it. Pretty exciting, huh? His handouts have just been collected and published in two volumes called Drawn To Life, and I would highly recommend these books to anyone who wants to learn or improve their drawing skills. These books are a goldmine of information and inspiration!

p.s. My drawings are on page 277 of volume 1!

Happy Birthday!

This is a portrait I did for an old friend's birthday. I had fun with one and did it rather quickly, which is unusual for me. Happy Birthday Anne!

Under the Witching Tree

Well, it certainly has been a long time! I've been working lots of overtime out of town lately, so its taken me a couple of months to get this done, but here it is. I couldn't get the scanner at the apartment to scan the whole image, so the edges are a bit cut off, but I've been wanting to get something posted for a while, so here it is. I'll get a better scan up when I can.
