Cat scratch fever

Remember this?
Well I decided to color her in, and it's not bad.

On my travels through Nevada & Arizona I picked up a pin-up book, complete with 3D glasses!
Except... when I opened the book the 3D glasses were gone!
How I ask?! It was still in shrink wrap!
Ah well i'm forced to draw from 2D now, you work with what you got.

This is only the start,
i'm going to get awesome at this digital painting, you'll see.
Planning on taking a background painting class too, so that should help.

I should go to Dr Sketchys again, I mean it's not that bad.
10$ bucks down around sunset and you get to lounge in a bar and draw during happy hour.
Probably the best drawing scenario one could ask for.

E is for Elephant

Self Teaching

Let's face it... in my eyes I'm pretty rad,
so I just had to draw myself.
Though I keep cutting off the arms in the sketches, because i'm not as cool as I think I am.

I'm gearing up for this weekend,
where I will start and finish my first real photoshop painting.
If it turns out good (which it will), then i'll post it for you all.

Then you'll all want to draw pictures of me too.

So much so that I sent mine only self to make a space themed poster.

I might have maybe... sort of....
ripped off the text layout from the a vintage Penguin cover, but that's okay!
I mean I did make the graphic on the front, and for that I am happy.

Honey Bear

This morning on a walk to the nearby store & this little guy decided to walk back with me.

He's my neighbors dog and he's quite the little character.
He seemed a bit over heated & bored,
so when I got home I decided to give him some water.

He's cute.

Ice cream saves bees?

Apparently the Honeybee crisis is still brewing.
So much so that Haagen Dazs are jumping on board and trying to help out.

The ultimate excuse to get fat.

I was looking up news about this and there's some
controversy as to if this whole honeybee deal is THAT huge.
Media is always quoting that Einstein once said...

"If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe,
then man would only have four years of life left."

I'm not sure that he really said that,
people can't seem to actually find that quote.
If you do, let me know, I'm too lazy...
Besides I have other political passions to worry about,
like closing down Guantanamo detention camp.

I think it's a good enough reason to make a quick banner though, right?
This is in honor of old book covers that I dig so much.
