Quincy Jones has started a petition to ask President-Elect Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts. While many other countries have had Ministers of Art or Culture for centuries, the United States has never created such a position. The country, and the artists, need this now more than ever. Please take a moment to sign this important petition and to pass it on to your friends and colleagues.

This is what's on desk now.......still! I'm spending way too much time on this piece. But I think I'll be wrapping it up soon. I have so many more to do! O_0 I'm sure by the time I have a chance to get out of the house I'll look not unlike Golem. But with smaller feet.....damn you Golem!!!

Irene( http://igallo.blogspot.com/ ) mentions reference. So I thought I would post up some of my own. Some old some recent. Sometimes I visit my Alma Mater to speak to students on illustration. I always stress the importance of proper reference and research. Personally, my work made a huge jump upon introducing photo reference. As I've mentioned before. The struggle comes when adapting the ref with the initial freshness of the sketch. I often have to frankenstein my ref using a piece of a hand here part of a body there. You may not want to become a slave to your ref. However, if you need the information it provides you it's there. Perhaps you can guess which ref was used for which final:)

Trying a different angle and in real time. I tend to turn and spin my painting as I'm working on diff parts so we'll see that will work out on the full video. Plus I often hoover over the work. hmmm....
