Mouse in the Doorway


Here's a little black and white sketch I did for that project that I'm trying to get myself going on. I only had three markers so it's a little sketchy but I hope you get the idea.

Ok ok...





So now that I've returned from all my crazy travels I've decided to continue doing some vis dev work on stuff that interests me. I'm trying to do something a little more classic looking and to make it easy on myself I started doing some character designs. I'm heavily influenced by the great Mary Blair. She is a genius that I think we still don't fully appreciate sometimes. She did graphic and stylized in a time where real was the order of the day. And she was a woman. Can't get much better than that. Also included here are a short study I did outside and a couple of paintings I did at the beach. I will never paint at the beach again unless I have a huge tarp draped over me to prevent the sand from blowing everywhere.
Hope you like.

Say hello to my little Friend....






Wow. It has been a while. I recently travelled down to Chiapas, Veracruz and Tabasco and decided to buy myself a present to celebrate not having a job. A Nikon D-80. If anyone trys to convince you that there is a better budget mid-range SLR out there tell them to take a hike. This camera is amazing. It's so freeing and frustruating to go out and take pictures of life as it happens. This camera has been the best gift I could give myself. So here are some of the pictures I took. I hope you like them.
