OK, I know silly tricky name but it's kind of a silly tricky drawing. Sold a couple of these but hurry 'cause the leftovers are being shipped to England for a show there.

Sketch Playground

Even with looming deadlines, sometimes ya just gotta play. Can't wait to work on my narwhal story. I've been holding on to it for years.

So I get to be in this really cool He-Man tribute show at Gallery 1988 LA. My piece is a two parter. The finished piece on top is a Cringer kitten painted on copper and about 2.5x2.5 inches. The Battle Cat, in funky armor, painting is in progress and about 7x7 inches on panel. I'll post the finish in a couple of days, hopefully. I'll also post details about the show later. How could I pass this up.

No Butter

Holidays and a lot of food. It's just on my mind. I've set the price of these drawings at $100 - $150 and I'll ship unless you want it overnight or something. But I can be swayed by pumpkin pie with cool whip.

As I've been working on these drawings and some paintings for shows in SoCal and England, I've been doing this poster for Opera Idaho. The story is a bit different from the Disney version we all know but I think this poster tells it well. I'm still not totally convinced of the type but I still have a few days.

Narwhal Rain

Do you have your deflector? Actually I'm working on a whole narwhal rain story, but don't tell anyone. I'm still deciding a price for these. Email me if you are really interested.

So I liked the thank you notes so much that i am going to continue working on this really cool ledger book paper from 1926. I really like working on surfaces with a history. I'm thinking of selling these as sort of commissions. you know give me a word or two and I do a drawing. Think it will catch on?

Michael's Visit

I had a great opportunity to share some time with Michael, sitting behind me in the first pic, a visitor to my class from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He watched a demo included below and kept the piece to remember the occasion. He was also given a surprise from Snapfish and Hewlett Packard later. What a great thing. And Michael if you come to visit here thanks for coming and talking with me.

Don't do a lot of zombies although I am a George Romero fan. Michael and I just had a conversation about zombies before class so I couldn't resist. I did some minimal digital work later.

Thank You Drawings

So if you do nice things for Bill you get these really cool hand made thank you drawings. But it has to be something really nice and I have to like you a lot.

Super Turkey 2009

If you live in Boise ignore this post until the week after next. I just thought I'd give my loyal friends a preview of my new Super Turkey cover (I've done one every Thanksgiving here for the past 7 or 8 years at least). I've also included the original drawing done in ballpoint pen.

Just catching up with some sketchbook stuff. I know that I haven't done any really cool paintings lately, but I am working on them and they will not disappoint. In the meantime I never stop sketching.
