Gourd Watercolor

I recently had another big life change - I got a new job. I may have more time to draw now. Here's hoping. These are some gourds I purchased a few weekends ago to draw from.

Things I do

This is what I do sometimes at work. Remove logos from packaging so I can put our customer's logos on them. The last image was hardest to do since it has so many reflections. Click below to see more.

i've been falling behind quite a bit. I have been drawing, just not posting, and I hope to remedy this soon. Here's the beginning of a sketch I'm working on. The park closed and security shuffled me out before I could get very far. Who knew parks in the city close so early! It was a lovely way to spend the evening after work. I'm trying to get practice in drawing buildings, something that was never a strong-suit with me.

Art I post here is usually vector, or photoshop. Thought I'd post a picture I took of a few rocks I painted after listening to a TED conference.

its snowing out...

Felt the need to change my background to reflect what the city will look like tomorrow (on twitter). When lake shore drive is shut down, stuff flies off of Wrigley field, and CPS schools are actually closed for a snow day, you KNOW the weather is bad in Chicago.

2011 is the year of the rabbit, so I designed a cute bunny. I'll put it on something in my zazzle store.


Ok here's the pinup illustration I've been working on. I think it's as far as I'm going to take it.

baby shower illustration....

I'm working on invites for my friend's baby shower. I'm quite happy with how they're coming out since I have free reign to design. I still think it needs flowers in the grass below the stork.

I've also been drawing different exercise drawings this week, I may find time to scan and post them here later this week. For now, here's a low-res preview.
