Imagine This

There was a random piece of wood and I felt the need to create.

This is different than just about anything that I have done, ever.
I really like it.
Prisma Color on wood panel.


A project for my Illustration class a couple years back.

The idea was about global warming.
Obviously Lady Liberty underwater.
It looks much better with this color as compared with just the line drawing (I still like the line drawing though).

Benaiah; David's Mighty Men

Unfortunately, and somehow obliviously I miss referenced this dry point etching.

But I attempt to look past that and look at the composition and style of the image.
There is a plan to do one of these images in watercolor, which scares me.

Punch You In the Face, a Commentary

One of a few videos in which I am driving and talking, believe me, it is completely safe. And, if I do say so myself, quite entertaining, though you may need to know me. Perhaps not, perhaps you will find joy in the ramblings of an un-adolescent, perhaps you will be able to empathize with me.
Just take a watch...


Fish Face

Alright, here it is, the much much better composition and concept for a birthday painting. My girlfriend, no matter what face she makes, is the most beautiful person ever!, and she makes the craziest fish face ever!! Thus far I am more impressed with my sketch than the painting, but there is still a lot more to be done I guess.

The painting is 4 foot by 4 foot and I have to paint it in the garage...
it's kind of awkward.


prelim for painting

Isn't she beautiful... I don't think any one could disagree.

Preliminary drawing for a birthday painting for my girlfriend.
Although it is a fine drawing, it did not quite capture her essence.
So, as I will post soon enough, I decided on something much more unique...


TJOP Meijer Draw

These are lamenting figures.  It works better for me to keep them vague, just figures, rather than to identify each as an individual, because that would just be too much work.  The concept is derived from the Greek myth the Judgement of Paris, and the competition of three women, the goddesses Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite, to be awarded a golden apple 'for the fairest one.'  Paris chose Aphrodite, and ignites the Trojan War.   

The overall goal of conceptualizing these figures is to be rendered as a cd cover design for the band 'the Judgement of Paris.'  
So instead of actually doing work at meijer, that is if you consider cashiering to actually be work, I draw.  I must admit that I don't always have the luxury of doodling while at 'work,' so the times that I do, I take advantage.  This is only a sampling of my handi-work, but the better portion of that particular day.
