Everyone is focused on Gaddafi for now, but this dictator is heinous. He also has a weirdly shaved philtral dimple which ends up looking like a hitler 'stache.

The Earth Men: Thumbnail

This is a thumbnail for the next chapter in the Martian Chronicles. It comes after many other thumbnails were tossed out and I received some good critiques from coworkers. This will be one of the last few chapters that I do. Unfortunately, I don't have the energy or the desire to do all the chapters. Frankly, some of them just don't excite me from a picture-making standpoint, and I have a lot of other ideas that need to get finished. One thing this whole endeavor HAS done is make me use traditional media more, and make me really focus on my compositions. There have been bumps along the way, but I really enjoy jumping in and trying something new.

There are a few more chapters that I really want to paint, so I will get to those after this then move on to a personal project I have been tinkering with for a while. I'm starting to do random doodles with acrylic and watercolor/gouache in my sketchbook, so some of those will end up on here from time to time.

Just foolin' around

Yosemite Winter

I spent last weekend in Yosemite with my wife. The valley looked amazing as usual and seemed to change throughout the course of the day. One minute it was clear, the next grey and misty. I can't wait to go back.

The Boss

If you have the patience and like searing guitars and heartfelt rock, this video is pretty great. No pretense, just a guy who loves to perform. Another crusty video classic from the internets. Also, The Boss plays Fender Telecasters mostly (my very favorite guitar.)
