You know what I'm thinking of doing now? Portraits. Even, tribute portraits for other folks. Of beloved pets, too.  Here is one page of studies done for a commission of a tribute portrait of a recently departed, wonderful beagle named Bluebell.

The latest from Block 15 Brewing Co. And just in time for July 4 festivities.  I'm damn proud of this one; which I had done last year. It looks fabulous on a can!

I'll be posting some sketches soonish. There is an announcement I need to make, but can't make right now. If that makes any sense. I've been told that mums the word until next FRIDAY when the OFFICIAL announcement is made.  And its a big thing for me and my art.



Another thing I'm doing right now is updating/modifying my website and I'm going to begin including my training regimen/routine in my blog. I'm an artist/athlete and feel its time I celebrate both on my website.



Anywhoos, later I'll post the sketches! Until then, have a great rest of your day!

Just vaguely announcing now, but be ready when the official announcement is made. And by "ready", I mean be ready to spend $ at the newsstand and online.

How does the monthly original art option on your Patreon work? What might one get, hypothetically speaking?

A sketch in graphite or watercolor or a 8x10 original piece in either graphite, color pencil or watercolor.

HEY! Due to a upcoming announcement about my work, I've decided I need to go to SDCC this year. As this is very last minute, the con is in two weeks, and am in the middle of making travel arrangements, I do need a hotel room. Rather, to find someone who has room to spare for me, a wee Chinese gal.



I'll only need it for the moments when I am absolutely in need of sleep (which won't be often).



If anyone knows of anyone, please have them contact me via email.  creativesmugbug @ mac dot com

At this point, Airbnbs in San Diego will either be booked or cost an arm, leg and a kidney.  So, I'm looking for floor space and will pay for it!

Also, if you do become a Patron, please let me know you're a fellow Chewer! I'll send you something extra immediately (that means, you'll need to provide me with a mailing address).

I like the shading in that one a lot.  Very atmospheric.

AFor some reason the style is reminding me of the portrait in "Manos" The Hands Of Fate. I dig it.

Pretty sure the ref photo I have had the color saturation tweaked, but I loved it. Such warm tones. Really think it adds to the mood of this scene.  And thank you!

For the briefest, terrifying moment, I thought you meant check out the movie.

Well, I was just thinking the mere act of ever watching it because I hear it's pretty bad. On the other hand, apparently Quentin Tarantino has a copy of the film print, so make of that what you will.

Why do I get the feeling that QT has a film print of A LOT of both good and really bad movies.

How long do these take you? It sounds like you're able to create one of these in record time from how you're describing them?



Impressive at any speed.

Studies are anywhere from 1-3 hours. Debbie Harry was under three.  As long as I'm having fun and not getting all worked up with self-doubts and hatred at my lack of talent and skill, I can merrily paint in a decent speed.



ETA: Sketches are generally an hour or less.

Yeah, let's just nip that whole 'self doubt' thing right in the bud.  You've got the goods.
