I feel like decapitation is probably a punishment fitting the crime if you are a tree spirit and the one you are after is a lumberjack.

I know its kind of lame to post this on two blogs, but its the first real painting I've done in a while.

Over on the secret sketch laboratory blog, the theme was princess this week.

She is the princess of orange.

Something which is not an evil child:

redheaded ugly

Have not had the means to post for a while, but today I've been waiting on work so I sketched an ugly ginger.

Still waiting. I call this one "t-rex on an evening promenade"

old and newish

the portrait was painted about a year and a half ago when I was at home visiting my family. it's a picture of my dad. He hangs it up in my sister's room whenever her boyfriend comes over. (no he doesn't)I drew this for my dad'd birthday card because all fathers enjoy fishing... right dad?


since this is a dad oriented post, I thought I would add this sketch I just found of him enjoying a television program on boxing day 2007.

still no scanner

so here's a bad picture of a painting I did a while back..... so sloppy

Thursday, March 12, 2009


I was gonna post some other stuff tonight but my scanner is broken. So instead, here is a birthday card I made for Sid awhile ago. Nothing says happy birthday like a rodeo frog.

I just went through my blog archive and realized what a bad year 2008 was for me in an arty way. For some reason I thought I wanted to draw and paint more realistically. I think some alien leech must have slipped into my ear and controlled my brain. I can pin point the time when things really went down hill. It was when I had to paint realistic cars everyday. It was the most creatively numbing thing. I HATE drawing cars. If I ever am asked to do something like that again, I will probably quit and serve coffee until I find something NOT realistic and car related. I am now trying to fix the situation by watching Donald Duck and Looney Toons and ordering a ton of books with Mary Blair stuff in them. When I was a kid I loved how round, appealing, and colourful the Donald and Mickey shorts were. Looney Toons were on every Sunday night, and luckly my dad loves them as much as I do, so we watched them every week. (Actually, my dad still gets excited about those cartoons...he's a really good dad.) And I know that I loved the colours in Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella many years before I knew who Mary Blair was. So I am trying to overdose on those things I love.

Holy fucking shit am I glad that's over.

forgotten drawings

I try not to turn on my computer that much. When I do turn it on, sometimes I find old drawings. It's like looking through an old sketchbook. Here's some sketches from both places.

bus people I would really like a mask like the one on the right. These ladies were not on the bus. They are fictional.

and some boys and older ladies.
