Stargazing II

This is my latest painting, finished about a week ago. I'm doing a similar image on a tie for a charity auction fashion show thing. When that's done I'll show it, too.

Acrylic on board

C-POPportunity, Part Three

C-POP Gallery's "CPOPportunity show ended April 7th and even though I didn't sell anything it was a positive experience. My thanks to the owner, Rick Manore, who is a very down to earth kind of guy and interesting to to talk to. We talked a couple times about the nature of art, anthropology, lawyers, comedians and pop culture in general. Well, he talked and I mostly listened. And he decided to keep my bronze piece on display at the gallery, at least for a little while, so that's cool. I took a few pictures a couple weeks after the opener with no people in the way, so here they are.

And the last picture is from the opener of the cartoon show in Belgium that I took from their website and lookee there behind the speaker, that's one of my cartoons (the lower right corner).

Future Fashion and The Burning Leaf

Here are a few of designs I did for an environmental t-shirt company, but alas, they did not seem to give a hoot because I never heard back from them. Oh well, I think that they are pretty darn cool, so here they are for your viewing pleasure.

okay....none of my images seem to be showing, so I'll have to work on that.

Giraffe Business Card

I've been trying to put together some self-promotional stuff to send out to magazines and other publications. So, these past few weeks I finally have made some headway into getting a website, designed some postcards and I have also worked on a business card that I can carry with me to hand out whenever. This is what I came up with.

And since that country girl Sandra likes giraffes as much as I do, it prompted me to post them to see if this works as a business card advertising my illustration work. The first image is the inked version and the other is with some photoshop manipulation. On the back will have all the contact info.

Lost Dog

Inspiration comes in the strangest places and at the oddest times.

Last week while watching the film Children Of Men, there was a scene that had a very short glimpse of a refugee wandering the streets and as she passed Clive Owen she was holding a lost dog flier. For some unbeknownst reason, I thought what would my wife put on a "lost dog" flier if I were to chew my leash and escape from the backyard? She had a good laugh at this and so this is what became of that.

And what of the welder's goggles? Well, if she thought that there was a need to put a flier on a telephone pole then I would probably be wearing something that would arouse suspicion.

Artiste Extraordinaire, Part Two

The floodgates are opened and luckily I only have one more niece after this that demands, yes, I say demands that her artwork be put on display on this here blog. This painting is from Dayna Gerlach, my other artistic minded niece and you can see where I get my skills.

Good job, Dayna!
