This is a little exercise I worked out on some foundry property. I was just trying to clean out an airbrush and one thing led to another...next thing ya know, I'm looking at Frankenstein. It was fun and makes me want to pick up an airbrush for more fun.

Hey Folks! This is my Chritmas Card this year. Doesn't it send warm shots of holiday cheer down your spine? In case it's a little unclear, this young lad is having a close encounter of the Christmas Eve kind. He's just surprised a creature from another dimension disguised as old saint nick and up to some intergalactic no good. Quickly thinking, the boy attempts to roast the being's chestnuts on an open fire by starting with the creatures highly flammable fake beard. On this night, Christmas and the universe are saved. Merry Christmas everybody!

This last Christmas I drew about 35 famous cowboys for a small show in Colorado. These few are in my opinion, the cream of the crop out of the whole bunch. I'm barrowing Drew Struzan's drawing recipe of brown or gray paper with chalk pencils. Drew is the first artistic influence I can remember. I always knew when I was looking at a Drew. He's been inspiring me since 5 or 6 and is the reason I absolutely love to draw the human head and all it's complicated features. Drew, if you're out there in cyberspace, here's to you dude!

This is a redo of an earlier piece that I felt was pretty weak. I think this piece is ten times stronger than the previous one, however I think there will probably be another version coming in a couple months to make up for the kinks in this one.

I've been doing a lot of experimentation with custom brushes in Photoshop. I've been fairly unsatisfied with my attempts to replicate that "traditional" look that so many of the digital artists I admire seem to be able to accomplish. Well, yesterday I dusted off my Sargent book and threw in some Lucien Frued for good measure and gave it another go with some life studies. The results are these two portraits of my parents. I think I'm getting closer to what I'm looking for.

The power went out the other night so I was without light and more importantly- a computer. It was a blessing in disguise however, because after gathering every candle I had- I dusted off the old water color set. And oh how fun it was. In this digital age it's rare that one gets to work with candle light.
