I found this sketch of what seems to be a larger than normal(tmi?)siznack and a headless shaft. The only thing is I totally did NOT draw this! Could the owner of this drawing of my...of this penis please step forward? Ooops, I just realized that I forgot to straighten out the drawing and the penis is pointing to the happens:/

I was up late painting. Then woke up at 5:30pm. So this is actually my Tues Sketch. Until I get to sleep it's easy for me to think of it as Tues. I don't really see this goin anywhere. But I really had fun doing it....isn't that the point kind of?

Mondays are good

Had a productive Monday. I usually do. Sometimes it's so hard to get motivated and stick with a painting if the deadline isn't in a week or worse the next day. I'm trying to figure out why I have good days and bad days. I'm accumulating a bunch of tips for myself. Any other tips for motivation are totally welcome(not including coffee, got that one down pat;)

Missed days? What missed days? This sketch is probably one of the cleaner sketches you'll ever see from me. The line work can be too soft or delicate sometimes so I often darken the image for the net.

Tara McPherson

Tara will be visiting CCAD Monday Feb 23rd 11:30am just around the corner. It will be held at the Canzani Center . If you're in the area you should definitely check this out.

James Gurney will be here April 6th and I won't be here to see him:( Damit, first Foster now Gurney...why have you forsaken meee!?

It's super winder here in Columbus tonight. And this popped into my head on the way home from CCAD(i've been painting there recently for any students interested) . I think i might just do a little study tomorrow and not "think" too much about what I'm sketching. It's kinda like medicine. I know it's good for me but I'm fighting it tooph and nail :/

5 ways not to introduce yourself to an Art Director...

I saw this on Irene Gallo's blog and thought it was worth reposting.

Five Ways Not to Introduce Yourself to an Art Director:

1) Don't give me your postcard and then take it back to cross out your web address because "the work there isn't good."

2) Don't let me flip through half a portfolio and then stop me mid way to say "the rest is older work, you're probably not interested, and it's not good anyway."

3) Don't show me one, and only one, image on an iPhone. In fact, unless you know I am very familiar with your work, don't show me an iPhone portfolio at all.

4) "Hello, my name is.....We're MySpace friends." Followed by silence thinking I'm going to remember you off the top of my head. Hell, I can hardly remember the names of people I actually meet.

5) 35mm slides!? I didn't think you could buy slide film anymore.

Guys, you’re at ComicCon. Chances of running into an art director are, well, high. You didn't just happen to run into the ADs for every major gaming, comic, movie, and publishing companies at a neighborhood barbecue, so get your ducks in a row before making that first impression.


Ok, here's my first sketch. And because the porn thing didn't quite pan out I now get my exhibitionism kick by whoring myself out on youtube....and it's kinda fun. see video here. I gave myself a half hour limit. You can see me just staring at the paper....waiting for something , anything to pop up. Be creative damn you!!! At the end of my sketch I got a random flashback from Science Friday on NPR talkin about the physics of jets. and added that to the sketch. For a glimpse at my failed attempt(to help pay for art school or course) into the adult industry poke here

Sketch A Day!!!

Fellow Artists Thom Glick has invited me to do a Sketch A Day for 2009. I'm getting a late start but after seeing everyone else's sketches I was totally inspired... And scared. My definition of sketch is a little do I say? Shitty :/ I'll be posting my sketch later today. I'm also going to try and be better about posting some progress pics on paintings as I go. Here's what I worked on late last night while listening to the Grammy's.

New Youtube Video

I'm excited about a piece I was invited to do for a very cool themed show at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA. The theme? Street Fighter! This one is a little more interesting to watch as you can actually see some progress with the drawing. I wanted to put a twist on the character I selected and set him outside of his normal environment. The opening is slated for April 25th. See video here
