Long time No Post

 I haven't posted on this blog in years. I've had twins, moved several times, and done so much. I think it's time I restart this thing. A few things I've made since I last updated in no particular order

First up is a drawing of Groot I did when I wanted to test if I had lost my ballpoint pen drawing skills. I did this and a picture of Christiano Rinaldo. 

This was a commission done of someone's child.

This is a painting of an alpaca in response to all the flooding of alpaca on Tumblr. 

This is a Totoro in the style of an anime artist I forget the name of. I feel like it's one of the brightest Totoro paintings I've done.

This was my updated response to Audrey Kawasaki's work. It's kind of a self portrait. Kind of not though. I feel like I could reach deeper. 

This is a response towards mixing fine art with Pokemon. I like it but I had originally intended on adding like 5 to 10 more pokemon. 

This is just a painting I did for my twins' nursery. There are several other artwork in their nursery but I will share it at another time. 

This is a Totoro painting done after seeing  work done by Leonid Afremov. My sister asked me to look into his work and it's pretty cool. 

I love doing paintings about Starry Night. I feel like that painting calls me. Anyway, this is a Howl's Moving Castle version that I feel makes a lot of sense.

Working on A couple things

Last night I painted my first yugioh card. I will continue to paint them. I actually had fun doing it. I also was working on my rain forest looking girl. I don't think she will be finished tonight since I need to do laundry but she should be finished tomorrow. I think I will post some of the sculptures I've been working on as examples for my students too. So more pictures to come soon.

Audrey Kawasaki Inspired girl

I painted this last night. I wanted to make a Kawasaki inspired girl. I've never seen one of her characters be black but I wanted mine to be. I also didn't use muted colors like she does but it still was inspired by the facial structure and the repeated simple elements.

Flowerhead Pt2

I couldn't sleep last night after watching Mushi-shi because it is so beautiful and keeps me thinking. I was practicing drawing the faces I saw on the screen and decided to make a painting based off of a sketch. I also wanted to practice using a bit more natural colors.

I am not sure why I love looking at flowers so much. But this painting makes me smile.
Thanks for reading.

This is Acrylic on Canvas. 18in by 24in.

Learning how to use photoshop like I would use paint is tricky. I find I want my results to come out too fast rather than spending more than an hour on one drawing.

Teacher Examples.

I feel a little like I've abandoned this blog. I'm not sure if anyone even reads it.

Here are some teacher examples I've done for my students.
I think I need to up my level of work for the students. I see them inspired all the time. There are a few that have used the ninja in so many art projects that it's exciting to see what they come up with next. I try to leave the projects somewhat open ended so they have some freedom in making decisions.
