This was a faster painting which is based on the the earlier painting in this series. This time, Thompson is inside a bomber cockpit. It's more serious than the others, but I'm pretty happy with it.

This was the largest piece I did for the Western/WWII series. The simpler elements make me much happier than the complicated ones.

This is a Narrative piece I recently did. It involves simply a catch phrase so I didn't make it too elaborate. Its been pretty interesteing learning to tell a story with images. I've got a long way to go, though.

Ok, So here's introducing my crazy, crazy first semester interpretive series...
It's called "How the West Was II" Its about a cowboy named Thompson, who, due to some wierd loophole in time/space, is fighting in WWII. It is a comedy series. It is also an excuse for me to poke fun at American bravado and pay tribute to the great American Illustrators of the early 20th century.
I have just a little bit more to do on this piece. Rick Sealock, my instructor this semester has really pushed me to make this project something I'm really happy with.

Here's a progress update on the FLIGHT painting. Not done yet. This summer's been pretty busy with co-op and extra client work, but I'm still having some fun on the side. It really has been an amazing summer.

Follow Up

I guess I could call this part 2 of my last post. I did this in my Lanscape sketchbook and threw some dark tones over it in photoshop just to see what kind of mood I could get out of it. Maybe I will paint something like this. I dunno.

I'm not a history buff but there is something about old historic wreckage/remains that really interests me. So when I saw photos of this, I was amazed!! It's a memorial site for the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor....right above the Arizona herself. Apparently the ship was full of millions of gallons of fuel when she went down in '41 and still leaks oil to this day. The Arizona took more men down with it than any other vessel in US Naval history.

I just thought I'd share it.

This is a sketch I did of the two best dogs ever, my Bostons. It was on a really hot day so they finally sat still long enough for me to draw them as they twitched and sneezed by their little swimming pool. Some say their dogs are silky. I say mine are silkiest.

In the master's domain.
Thank-you for the privilege, Bob.

WOW. A lot has happened to me since my last post. I've been in B.C. for a couple of weeks and the spring has been a busy/exciting one to say the least! On top of getting married, I got to meet a personal hero of mine which was really exciting and inspirational. I'm really feeling lucky these days.
Here's a two panel piece that I started since school ended. It's still in progress. I'm trying to keep everything in it experimental, though it is a familiar theme for me. The planes are "Zero" Fighters
Any criticisms are welcome, of course.

Here's a new piece I recently finished. I have been enjoying line shape and colour recently in my personal work...obviously. That's what this painting is about. Just experimentation.

Thanks for stopping by.

I did this painting instead of interpretive homework last weekend. Bad drawing, but I like the colours. These side projects are really keeping me going these days. Whoopee!

This is one I did last weekend. It is mainly about the colours interacting but I ended up enjoying many hours painting the design. (And yes I have heard of Adobe Illustrator.) Anyways, any growth is welcome growth and I liked this strange colour combo.

This is kind of a wierd one. Just experimenting. I like how parts of it turned out. I should probably get some real homework done.

Squid Painting

This is a painting I really enjoyed doing instead of doing real homework. Just what I needed after a long unproductive day.

Another Life

Here are some highlights of Life drawing class last semester. Plus a sketch of a fish which looks like a Piranha. Viscious.
