Sunday Sketches

So...let me preface this post by saying that I have difficulty sitting still for too long; and I have trouble focusing on one thing at time...usually. Some may call it ADD...........


So anyways. At church on sundays, it always helps me to listen to the speaker if my hands are kept busy. I have a little notebook that I take notes on the talks being given, and make little sketches. I've decided to start sharing some of these. I hope you enjoy them.

The actual size of this one only measures about 1" x 2.5 inches or so. But I kind of like it. It was inspired by various trips to London.

This handsome gentleman was drawn while I was waiting for a speaker to finish, before I got up and gave a talk. At this point I had been awake for over 24 hours, and was jittery as all get you can tell.

So this is what the little pad I draw on looks like. I can't claim the middle drawing of the shark, though. It was done by a friend of mine. I had the frame drawn in, but couldn't think of anything to put in it, so she volunteered to fill it in. Kind of a cool little sketch, no??

Here's a blown up version of that landcape...again, it only measures about 1"x2.5"

Thar be dragons.

So I've been working with some friends on a project, and I've been working on various character concepts....Here are three of them. It's in the initial stages, and these are the first three that came out of my head. I'll get more serious about fine-tuning things as the days roll on.

Runes and Fire...

So several years ago...before graduating from ArtCenter...before graduating from CSUN...I did a drawing of a wizard.

Please don't judge my drawing abilities back then...I'm painfully aware of all the little mistakes. But, all in all, a nice little drawing. I've recently decided to get back into painting with oils...I find the process of painting and creating a unique art piece with my hands extremely gratifying. Since it's been awhile since I even touched oil paints, I decided to use this as a way of transitioning back into the medium....Not too shabby for not holding an oil brush for a few years huh?

The Beginning...

So I decided to finally start blog that covers my art and what I'm working on at any given moment...
With any luck, I'll actually update it regularly!
