Illustraion Friday Tea (Revisted)



I was leafing through some old work and came across sketch I did way back in 2006 for Illustration Friday. The topic was tea. Boy I can't believe that was 3 years ago!

I always liked how the sketch came out so I decided to finish it for use as a promotional piece.

Illustration Friday - Fleeting 2



A fleeting glance.

Superpaint to Photoshop


I was cleaning out some old files today and came across an image I did in college. Good grief it's so old the paper is all yellowed. I think I was suppose to be doing my COBOL assignment, but even back then I'd rather be drawing pictures on a Mac! It says at the bottom "Superpaint on a Macintosh SE" and it's dated 1989. Wow, things have sure come a long way since then! And thank goodness, I haven't had to code COBOL since.

Ever see something out of the corner of your eye? A fleeting apparition lurking in the shadows. Yeah... me neither.

I found out today that the distributor has selected "On a Dark, Dark Night" to be a full page feature in their fall catalog. Yay!

Word Verification Definitions - Trilitly

You know those little random blocks of text that Google and other websites make you type in to make sure you are really a human and not some automated spam generator. They are usually wavy bits of type that look like they were created on a corroded typewriter. I've started saving some of these nonsense words. I'm the kind of person that doesn't like to throw things away and some of these like perfectly good word. It would be a shame to throw them out. So I've started giving them definitions. Here's one...

trilitly /tri-lit-lee/(adverb) To go forth lightly, to flutter from place to place. She skipped trilitly through the spring flowers.

Illustration Friday - Talisman


What an odd little thing it was lying there in my hand. I wonder what made me stop and pick up. It looked just like thousands of other stones scattered on the forest floor. But for some reason I stooped to pick up this particular one. I tried to remember what I saw that drew me to it. But there wasn't anything really. As I recall it was half buried in the earth. I even had to use a stick to pry it loose. But as I brusquely brushed off the grime with the palm of my hand, my heart skipped a beat. I felt a chill, as I looked into its unseeing eyes. I picked up another stone and then another just to make sure. Maybe there were hundreds of little carved figures laying around. Maybe it wasn't fate that drew me to this one, maybe it was just the luck of the draw. But all the other stones I found were just ordinary rocks. And this was anything but ordinary.
