Something new


I always try different mediums and approaches w/my work. It keeps me fresh and excited @ the same time adding to my repertoire(hopefully) Plenty of times it ends up in failure, but sometimes I find myself coming across a happy accident. This was the first time I had drawn on the cardboard backing of a notepad in attempt to add a new approach to my work...... I hope you enjoy the result, I did too, @ least temporarily.

Hey David,

Wow, that's great! Very nice use of space and awesome design. Nothing better than trying out new mediums, that'll keep you from getting stuck and who knows what you might discover:)

I bought the "Art of Open Season" book yesterday and it's delicious! So many cool designs and stuff to get inspired from. I saw a few of your designs in it as well, great contributions!

I can't wait to get off work so I can go see "Open Season" YEEEEAH! :D

Have a great weekend,

Hans

thank you all for the congrats on being in OS book. I havent even seen it myself......kind of a big deal for me b/c we all know how we salivate over the art in those books. I have always looked to those books as some of the best art in the biz..... thank you all very much

Love the drawing! but I think great things can happen if you brought out the cat a bit more... like mess with some curves in Photoshop.
gorgeous...
