Hello Blogarians!

26 September, 2008

This is an ink on paper contour drawing of an artist by the name of Bhagavan Das. He sings ancient mantras to a modern and sometimes english mix. The most simple of mantras is "OM", "AUM" or "AMEN", which we have all heard of and is incorporated into many religions. OM is believed to be the cosmic vibration that holds together the atoms of the world and heavens. Supposedly it is the vibration at which we all resonate. I find that theory to be fascinating and it works as a tool to help me visualize, draw or paint what is non physical, you know the whole space between thing. My intentions concerning my recent work have been attempts at letting go completely, not pushing the pen but being pulled by it. Sounds silly but this is how most of my recent work has manifested. One great attribute of this process is that it lacks expectation which in return relieves disappointment. I suppose applying and maintaining this action in the commercial field would be the real test. I believe many of the Blogarians have already accomplished this.

PS: I am very impressed with the over all growth and determination and family like community that I still see here at Blogarians. The web site looks fantastic and all the work that everyone has been posting is truly incredible. Great to be back.

This is a piece I was commissioned to do by a Christian group that wants to make a political statement about Christianity and politics... quite a controversial subject so I wanted a little humor in it.

Wacom Cintiq Sketches

I have to give a big thanks To Brandon for suggesting Sketchbook pro. It is exactly the type of sketching software I have been looking for. Just like you said man the program has no lag and feels so natural.

Thanks Brandon!!!!

Dingeltrot Cover

This is a cover for the first book in a series called Dingeltrot. The book is about the adventures of a character from a human community who hide/ live in a barn due to their small stature.They are identical to a humans in every way, except for being incredibly tiny.

This is the first full painting I have done on my new Wacom Cintiq 21ux. I don't know if you guys have tried one of these monitors. but it is well worth the hefty investment. Having the hand-eye coordination of the pen directly on the large monitor feel so natural unlike the tablets, also it speeds production by about 100%

Sky Bounce T-shirt

This is a t-shirt design for a company called Sky Bounce. Sky Bounce Specializes in the sale and production of balls for urban street sports. I wanted to try and bring that Urban graffiti feel into the piece. Also the notion that a normal street can be the playground for the games.
