The Raven Nevermore...

This particular image is just something I did for fun. I was messing around with a brush pen and I wanted to draw a bird so...Bing-bada-boom! I get this image.

Oh the Animals will play!

This fine image I will hopefully be using as my mailer for getting commissions and illustration jobs in the near future. The theme for this particular drawing is animals in children books. Each animal from left to right: The Snake from the Jungle, The Ugly Duckling, Big Bad Wolf, The Walrus and the Oysters from Alice in Wonderland and Filnally the Three Pigs.

Its amazing what can happen when you put your pen to paper and after some time look to find a beautiful image has come about. I had no real idea on what I was going to do and it just came together in the end. I started with the Ugly Duckling and the other animals just fell into place.

Scary and Stuff

I was thinking about the things that scare me or just plain creep me out for one reason or another and I decided to make an image of it. This drawing encompasses some of the things that are scary to me. (From right to left) Clowns...Come on! They're freaky! Whats the deal with all the make-up!?! No should be that happy ever. Someone with snot a gunk coming from their nose...Its just GROSS. The scary doctor with a needle and a scalpel...Nuff said. the fat women with fat hanging off of her arms...That is just Gross! The person whose breath always stinks of onions or other smelly things.

Mom's Turn!

This fine lady is my mother who I feel bad about not mentioning or drawing in my earlier post about my dad. This a complete watercolor sketch without any pencil or pen under-sketch which is the first time I have done something like this before. I'm pleased with the art piece as I feel it has a lot of movement to it.

Many People

This is something I did when my frame of mind was a little on the dark =side...perhaps I was feeling depressed about something!?! To be honest I don't remember. I know I wanted to draw someone with their hand in front of their face so why not draw more than one person with their hand's in front of their face.

It turned out to be a nice experience and I always love trying new and fun ways to draw stuff. Oh also...did some Photshop experimentation on the drawing.

Drawing in Church

Yep it true! You caught me! I draw in church just about every week. That is how I take notes instead of sleeping in church which I must confess will happen if I don't take notes. This is the first in a series of drawing for Philippians series and it concerns the role of a Deacon to the church. I like this minimal approach to these drawings. This is a different format for me but it seems to be working well.

Thank you all for your response for me to write about each piece and I'm glad I wasn't doing it for nothing. I still can't believe I have people who stop by this blog to check it out so often. Thank you all for your support!

Political Musings

Here is a little diddy I did about the Presidential candidates. I wanted to show both candidates falling out of the sky with no land in sight. To be honest with you all I am not sure who I am going to vote for as I am not sold on either one of them.

Oh! By the way...they are both wearing parachutes and only Mccain's is out. I guess he jumped first.

On the Rocks

I did this in my new mole skin sketchbook which I am loving a lot. I wanted to use just one color to emphasize parts of the story. I like dark subject matter which hopefully I comes across.

*I'm curious...Does it matter what I write for this piece or any other piece!?! I do most of these drawings to speak for themselves and I find it hard to write something about each piece. If you have the time let me know what you think in the comments.
