Everwilling Friends

Here are a few of my favorite people and some of the ideas that generated "checkmate" and "andy."
Thank you for being my ever willing models and such amazing friends. 
By the way "everwilling" is a new word.

Humble Pie

You know some people in this world really need a slice of humble pie, especially if you're not the best- yet...
I know I am good at some things, but I am far from the best- maybe some day I will be the best but until then its time for me to watch, practice and learn.
I want to be a life long learner, it is something I will always enjoy. I love the feeling of change and accomplishment, I love seeing it in other people and that is why I love to teach.

Please take a look at Xavier Robles de Medina's blog, he is an amazing artist pursuing his double BFA in Painting and animation. He is one of those people that I admire greatly, the one who you know will be so great and makes you want to work harder! :)

Back in California I had the most inspiring teacher, Michael Buffington, the original "drawaholic", the Master Jedi. I am but his young and humble padawan.
Here is what I have to thank him for...

Helmets can be cool

I truly believe that helmets can be cool. I've learned not to care when people laugh at me when I wear a helmet, who will be laughing when they get hit by a car? okay, not me. But anyways, I want a helmet like this!

Double Sided

We have to see the world from multiple points of view, from different sides of the world and through different sets of eyes.
I painted this about 2 years ago, so the skill displayed isn't quite up to speed with the present, but the idea still remains important to me.

Georgia O'keeffe Replica, Acrylic 11x14
(first time using acrylic-for real guys)

Had to use the left over paint...

 Here are some clothed gestures/ character sketches from storyboarding!

Here is how my underpainting is coming :)

Soy Sauce

 I like to use lots of different materials.
This sketch is drawn with Soy Sauce, it has a much higher staining ability than vanilla. Pomegranate juice is also very beautiful.
fyi- i drew this before a similar image appeared on the scad bus...
