My little brother and I in the 80's used to watch this show Robotech on TV, around 3:30, right after the Gumby show. It was the coolest show ever featuring super cool robots and amazing battle sequences. So when given a chance to give a gift to my little brother for this Christmas, I remembered the good times we had with this show and thought that a little painting done for him as a gift could be pretty cool. I'm not sure of the authenticity to this one being the early Max Sterling model, and I could be wrong, but that plane next to the skull fighter was one of the coolest ever. If only there was a live action version of it in theatres, now that would be amazing, seeing all these 80's shows coming to life in the big screen. Until the next post bloggers!

Happy Valentines day y'all! We've got a couple of parties in the works at the house, one for a family at lunch and another at night, so I'm mad rushing to assemble and prepare stuff for the festivities. I think it's like the Chinese new year as well, so it's a like a big weekend for many reasons. Pretty cool. And it really helps that we've got a president's day holiday tommorrow to get some cushion time before headin' back to work. Know what I mean? Well, here's another sketch I did at work during a break. I started the piece by just going at it with like a 40% grey marker to get the gesture and some landmarks down and finished it off with some pens. Kind of spontaneous and chaotic, but defianately a fun one to do. Hope you guys have a great weekend and I'll see you on the next post!

Works been hectic today. Just a lot of meetings and work on top of that. I managed to find some time to get something scanned and put in to keep the love alive in the blogging world. Not much to say about the piece but just another one of those sketches I did during breaks. Hopefully I'll get a chance to do more finished pieces, but it'll have to do for now. And thanks guys for continuing to check the site out and leaving such cool comments. And I want to give a special shout out to my wife for putting up with me sittin' in the room painting while the kids were goin' crazy yesterday. Thanks honey.

Thanks guys for checking out the site. I haven't been so regular with the postings, but I'm gonna try to be more frequent so check by often! Finished a long day of work and got a chance to scan this piece I did at the end of the day. Wanna thank my peeps Jason Weitzner for helping me out with the scan. My Assistant director came in a few days ago with a really cool shirt with Jimi Hendrix and I remember how cool the image of him looked. Just kinda poured that energy I felt from seeing the image and I drew this. I kinda like the rough look to the piece, kind of has that raw kinetic energy you feel hearing his music. What do you guys think? Until the next post bloggers!

So here's another one of those sketches that I've been doing between breaks at work. I was doing some caricatures of some office people(which I'll post soon), but I've been interested recently in delving into the female anatomy again, just to keep that part of my wee little brain active. I would do the head, the body and so on, a few minutes here and there whenever time is available. A lot of the details got lost unfortunately because the scanner here could only high contrast the marker rendering. A lot of the textural details got completely turned to black. But I think it's clear enough to see what it was. It was fun to just let loose on some inks and markers. Until the next post bloggers!
