Green Flying Monkey

Last Sunday the early football games on tv were kinda lame, so I grabbed a needle and thread and whipped out a new flying sock monkey…

iPad Brushes App

Over the past couple of months I have experimented with several different iPad painting apps… SketchBook Pro, Colors!, and Art Studio to name a few. By far my favorite is Brushes. Until Wacom comes out with a self contained Cintiq the size of an iPad (I won’t hold my breathe) this will probably be my painting App of choice.

SketchBook Pro On An I-Pad

I had really, REALLY hoped the new I-Pad would have a little bit of screen sensitivity so it could function as a way cool digital art tablet… but of course it didn’t. Screen sensitivity would have shot the price through the roof and nobody (except a couple of goofy artists wanting a digital art tablet) would have needed it anyway.

I went ahead and got an I-Pad and have had a lot of fun experimenting with Sketchbook Pro on it. The video below gives an idea of how I work the painting program, and all these pictures were painted totally with SketchBook Pro (no touch-up later in Photoshop). These are all raw, straight out of the I-Pad things.

A New Roma Classroom

I just spent a week in Braila, Romania and the good folks over at N-Ovation donated some of my wall art to be put up in the Sunday School classroom behind the Roma Church in Spiro Haret. I had never personally worked with this product before, but now that I have I can wholeheartedly vouch for it. These are vinyl wall coverings with an adhesive back. I’m guessing they are probably meant to adhere to a smoother surface, but the walls I put them on were rough as a cob and in spite of that, the “Walleeze” stuck to them like a trooper.

What a great product!

Alpha And Omega

The beginning and the end. Here’s the starting point and the ending point on a typical illustration for me…

A Little Off Course

Sometimes these things go exactly as planned, and sometimes they… well… yikes…

Milk Duds

Sometimes I get a job and I have absolutely no idea what it is for or how it is to be used. This was one like they. My art direction called for two cartoony cows taking bows, one in a tux and top hat and the other in a tutu and please, no personal parts showing. I’m still not sure in what context ┬áthis is to be used, but it did remind me of one of my favorite cow jokes…

What do you call a couple of bad dairy cows? Milk Duds…

Happy Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day can get kinda weird around our house and it was no exception this year with the appearance of this little knucklehead…

New Testament Scottish Shepherd

Was it my intention to draw a New Testament Scottish Shepherd? Well… no… but all I would need to add to this guy’s skirt are a few horizontal lines and he would be sporting one mighty fine looking plaid kilt…

Holy Cow!

This is a sketch I did a year or so ago that I always meant to go back and finish. That hasn’t happened yet, but maybe someday…
