Went figure drawing this morning. The last one of the year. This was the first 20 minute pose of the session. It was the only one that turned out halfway decent. Thank god there is next year.

It was cold and late rainy morning. A rather quick gouache sketch from my car. I was so hungry that I had to wrap it up and get something to eat.

Painted this sketch from a roof top in LA. It was stupid hot. Too hot to paint. I planned on doing more painting but seeing how hot it was my desire to paint was cooked away.

Some older stuff that I did while working at my old job at GPG . I did loads of this stuff. Don't think I've ever really posted any. I've gotten kind of gotten drained over the years drawing chicks with swords, guys with big shoulder pads and Monsters. Guess that's to be excepted when you stay doing something long enough. These are some concepts for Dungeon siege 2.

a little while ago I did this piece for a Muppet Rawk show. Where famous Rock Album covers and Muppets collide.

Falling in Love again
Over the past few years I have fallen out of love with drawing. My painting has suffered because of it. I just put big shapes of color down and didn't really put my attention on the drawing. It has become painfully obvious to me. Guess I have or had a foolish notion that while I paint it will all fall together. Unfortunately this isn't always the case, not even close, least not for me. So in effort to fall back in love with drawing I went to a gesture session TO DRAW!!!
going to make this a priority once again.

did these studies on the same day last weekend. the bottom one I painted looking through a fence from across the street .It's a Steel mill and I was watching them dump this hot shit on the back of this dump truck. I would like to go back during the night and try to capture it. I was painting under a overpass and cars would drive by me getting on the freeway, it was very busy and noisy. I don't know what it was but people kept honking at me. Everytime it scared the crap out of me . So I painted fast, only trying to get the color. next time.

I start to paint this little sketch outside and about 15 minutes into it a old friend of mine walks by out of the blue and we start chatting while I paint. In the process I didn't watch the valves and the piece ended up not being strong. Of course all this an excuse for the suckage.
