Wishing On Stars

Unrealistic expectations perhaps? 14"x18" acrylic + ink on bristol vellum. The dots were created with iridescent ink, so in person you can only see the patterns at certain angles. (which is a bit annoying, but would look great in low lighting)

New Print + Magnets in the shop!

Updated the Shop page with links to the newly available "Love in Wonderland" print (through inPrnt). It's available in both 13"x19" inch and 18"x24" inch sizes. Also, my Zazzle store has five different magnet prints to choose from... definitely check it out if you're in need of some eyecandy for your fridge! (I've got a few on mine as well!)

Day In, Day Out + my favorite letter P + Doodles

Started a new piece called, 'Day In, Day Out' from one of my previous sketches... I'm about 70% finished. It's acrylic and ink, on 14"x17" Bristol. I'm really happy to get to put more intestines in my work, those are always fun to draw... I also used glazing for the first time in FOREVER since college, but with acrylic this time (which I've never been too successful with, but I really like how it's working).

I've been experimenting the last few weeks on test paintings, to try to (once again) try to get the drawings to be 90% finished before I tweak on the computer. Below are three results of that, one of them hasn't even been touched by the computer! :) (I liked it too much to finish past the point I was at... can you tell which one??) I've just really missed the feel of painted work and wanted to change things up a big, and get down some thick paint, instead of the watercolor-like stuff I've done previously. Makes me feel rather bold actually...!

And last, but not least, I want to scan more of my typographical oriented stuff and put up here more often... so here is a really nice letter P that I drew on the train ride home tonight. (and a fish lady... I thought it was funny at the time, but now I guess Isee its a bit more creepy...)
