This is a scratchboard drawing I did as a series getting the inspiration from early Picasso works. I had learned somewhere along time that there is a colorful bug in Africa called the picasso bug. I don’t know if it was named after him or not but it actually has circus colors not too distant from Picasso’s harlequin early paintings. So I drew him in the series as a kind of funny comment on how such a little bug can sit alongside the great master. I will be posting the fun short series. This one is engraved in scratchboard black and painted with various water and acrylics. Of course the textures and colors and patterns are typically me.
This is a story of a woman who is elevated to another existence by geese who save her life through love and by chance. They hold her up to relieve her pain and to fly her to her new home through a break in the clouds.
I am still working on the story and I will link it soon.
This little guy is a welsh corgi. Of course he is. Once upon a time a little girl wanted him strictly because she thought he was one of cute Mexican dogs they call a chiwawa.
He made a little ruffled bark and told her, “No, I am not a chiwawa dog.” She took him
home anyway. They lived happily ever after.
I have combined my love of fonts; this one is Dino Kids, with pencil sketching and digital ribbon and bow, drawn on my Cintique by Wacom. enjoy. purchase
Another landscape of imagination came to me in a dream. Imagine our world with no vegetation, no animals, no warmth from the sun.
The last vestiges of people march in robotic style towards a white sun, orange sky with tiny bright distant stars.
Here is another pencil drawing from my portfolio that I did a little digital editing on today to add some highlights and deepen some tones. No one has ever seen this artwork as it was buried in some old files I found.
I am posting this and I am wondering if it might be good art for a book cover. So, in a day or two I will be fabricating a book title and I will search for a font that will fit the art. The drawing will have to be simplified I think for a commercial book cover. I love working in pencil because it is so honest. I want to do more.
Here is the artwork on products in my online store:
