Painting Update

November 14, 2006

Here are some mostly-completed paintings.

There are some cat paws on the lower right. They belong to Oscar the cat.

Satan Portrait

November 4, 2006

Satan

And here’s a Photoshop painting of Satan.

I’m reminding myself: Photoshop is quite a nice painting tool.

Sloppy Cleanup

October 22, 2006

I’ve noticed on some monitors (probably most) the backgrounds of these drawings are much more gray with sloppy eraser marks all over the place. This is a known issue, and I hope to clean it up sometime soon.

Everything looks fine on my monitor, of course. Just another frustration of publishing on the web…

Additional October Drawings

October 21, 2006

I have been doodling a lot lately, but not scanning a lot lately. Tonight I did some good scanning of doodles done during the past 2 weeks or so.

Another Form

October 2, 2006

And here’s one from tonight. It’s an organic form, in the tradition of some previous drawings.

Brain-Buster

October 2, 2006

And here’s one from last night. It’s a regular buster of the brain.

Organics in Pencil

October 1, 2006

I’ve been having a good time lately with my mechanical pencil. I love mechanical pencils. I should use them more. I like to erase a lot.

Anyway, here’s 4 doodles from a few days ago:

Perplexed American Citizen

Malformed Taxpayer

Struggle

Angel of Worry

Fun Stuff

Have some fun without enduring the usual frustration and possessing all the mandatory diligence of a professional comic artist:

Mission Statement!

September 25, 2006

Alright. I’m starting this blog-style portfolio so I can easily publish drawings/paintings/artworks soon after they are made. I’m using a very old version of the Movable Type blog software for this until I get my act together (which may be never).

I will not post any old work. You can go to my professional site to see that stuff.

This will be recent work on a weekly or semi-weekly basis, hopefully. Sometimes there may even be daily posts! Holy Shit!

Former Kansas City Art Institute classmate Peter Bernal once said:
“A man is only as good as his latest piece.” (Circa 2000)

Judge me by my latest post. All past work contributes to the success or failure of the latest work!

Organic Abstract

September 25, 2006

Here’s a pencil drawing from a few days ago to get this party started:

Stapler Usability Concerns

July 26, 2006

An extreme case of mis- or non-applied usability practices:
A staple gun fired from the wrong end!

I don’t work in physical product manufacturing or packaging, but I’m thinking the manufacturer could have prevented this. The user didn’t read the instructions (seems quite common), but the design of the staple gun could have reinforced the correct usage through shape, colors, or warning labels.

Strange Public Sculptures

July 1, 2006

Considering the ridiculous amount of hard work it takes to create any type of semi-permanent sculpture, I’m happy to see these examples that are strange, whimsical, and not restrained by societal censorship:
