9 & 10

My goal is to produce at least one of these every week. Next week, however, I will be busy idling about in the sand-strewn wilderness of Horn Island, so here's two.

I don't really like the alligator-baby one, especially that chicken. And the woman's hair. But I thought I'd post it anyway.

Can one be "busy idling"? Hm. I intend to prove it is possible, as I will be working hard at being my idlest next week.

This piece was created to immortalize an epic confrontation which took place in my backyard this morning. A deer wandered into the backyard and one of the stray cats decided to stalk it. The deer showed a great deal of fortitude, however, and did not back down from the challenge.

(Sorry about the blurriness, I had to take the picture through my filthy window.)

more medallions

The smaller ones are 4" in diameter, the larger ones are 5.5" at the widest point. (the dog is one of the larger ones)

Discs of wood, each about 4" in diameter. I started doing these this weekend and they are a lot of fun to make. I'm not sure if they are quite "there" yet, though. Any suggestions?


There are many things I somehow managed to not learn during my four years of art school, one of them being coloring with Photoshop. Some of the others include anything to do with Illustrator, and most aspects of painting. Luckily for me, Sir Priddy of the Nimble Brush has so kindly posted a tutorial on computer coloring on his blog. (Thanks!) So here is my attempt at that.

Practicing with the brush and ink, which I haven't attempted in quite a while.
