Owl Painting

Couldn't sleep last night so I painted an owl for one of my friends. I got the framed canvas wall art thing for a dollar at a local thrift store, its about 3'x3'. The owl and snowy branches are done in acrylic.

the Rocking Horse Winner

I watched the 1949 film last night. It's even creepier than the short story though I truly love how it's filmed, and that the little boy went on to direct Monty Python :)    Some day,  I would like to make an animated short of this story....where the horse looks like this....

Frazetta Studies






I just finished a great book this weekend on the art and life of Frank Frazetta.  I love his brushwork and compositions but most of all I love the confidence in all of his works, from gesture to oil painting.

Squishy Squid

I did this in college, though for the life of me, I can't remember what it was for.
Anyways, its kinda cute.

Face

Part of a quick graphite sketch- There's something about staring at pencil lines up close that I find soothing....

Peachy Princess


I've been very busy lately working on a very cool project for a girl named Amy. Amy has Downsyndrome and is a remarkable painter. She loves to paint pictures of princesses, and when her family told me they wanted to make a book of original princesses for her to paint, I was MORE than happy to oblige. The book will be in production later this spring.
(I couldn't help painting one of the rough sketches.) More to follow soon.
