Try something new....



I went to the Petersen Automotive Museum tonight for a special event. Now I am not a car guy nor do I draw cars but I was so inspired by the old cars I saw tonight. Love the designs, and so much history! It inspired me to do some quick sketches. These are the first real field studies of cars I have ever done, and it wont be my last. Which brings me to an important point; dont be afraid to try something new, you may like it and if not you at least learn something in the process.

Gumby is a bit timid of new things


Here is another oil piece for my exhibition at Galerie Maghen in Paris in November. I started it on Saturday at my good friend Craig's studio and finished it up on Sunday. Forgive the photo though...cant even see the blue sky in the background. So hard to shoot art! I am just about finished with all the pieces for the exhibtion. 15 more were requested since April. I did 9 between then and July to deliver to the representatives at Comic Con and then had 6 left. This piece makes 3 of the 6. I am going to do one more oil this Saturday which will allow two weeks for drying and with the wash approach it will dry in no time. I just started my 4th one lastnight and its a large graphite illustration. I have done a few graphite pieces....sometimes black and white just speaks to me!
I have many ideas for the last few...so who knows. I am having a blast!
