Archives For artwork

First Hi to everyone that still visits my blog. I want to really focus some time on revamping and doing some new and fresh art for all my supporters. In the last few years since I have been working full time again I have kind of let things go and I have not been producing many final pieces of art. As you can see in my instagram feed I am still sketching a lot but no finished pieces. When i was producing final pieces I was traveling to hot rod shows and I always needed something fresh. Now I think it is is time to shake off the dust and get back at it. My first goal is to finish the Hot Rod Car Themed Card Deck called the Burner Deck. If you haven’t seen me working on it I am hand inking each piece for a card deck I am going to produce and all the proceeds will be going to a Charity by the name of Redeeming Love. They are an organization that helps victims from the Human Trafficking trade here in the US.  So I am very energized to get that thing launched. Then after that I have a few things I would like to do but I need to give it some thought and time to see what is next. In the mean time check out my instagram feed to see more updates just look for that link in the upper right hand corner.  Here are a couple images from the card deck project below. Talk soon

Well I am back at it after taking some time off this past week. I unplugged for the most part and did not look at the digital world while I was gone.  Took  time to really focus on my family and have some fun. It was a great time to be refreshed and get prepared to take on some big tasks. I have a new tutorial series planned for Masters of Chicken Scratch blog along with some tutorials for an online learning community. I have also been talking Continue Reading…

 

This is a small sketch I did recently on my Ipod using a program called Brushes and my new Bamboo stylus from Wacom

Took me about 20mins to get it done. I used a reference shot of the 1909 Blitzen Benz (very cool race car)

I ask myself this question all the time. How do I stay ahead of the game in the design world. There are so many ways to approach this question. I know that as an artist and designer I never feel that I can say that Continue Reading…

 

I recently had the opportunity to work with an advertising agency by the name of CP+B on a really fun project. Domino’s Pizza is running a contest with Local Motors to create a creative Continue Reading…

The sketches I have here is just one of the many sketches I have been sketching for the MOCS Vol 2 book.

Measuring your success. I think is is one thing I constantly focus on and I actually don’t like that. How do we really measure our success? I have made it when I get Continue Reading…

“Grow Up”

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

Pablo Picasso

 

I truly love this quote for several reasons. When we are kids we are praised for our art and people think it is great. As we get older we are told “grow up” “get a real job”. Have any of you ever faced trials Continue Reading…
