Spirit

Meet Spirit! A beautiful Pitt mix I’ve just finished drawing. This commissioned piece took me about five hours to complete. I used Prismacolor colored pencils on Strathmore Bristol board.

Meet Mitchell

Another commission for a happy customer. I just love how this guy came out. Micron pen and ink on vellum cardstock.

Self-Portrait

I am working on a self-portrait with the intent to enter a contest with Jerry’s Artarama, and of course, to improve my abability to draw faces. I always seem to have trouble making the face look like the reference. This is myself drawn in a basic pencil in my sketchbook. As you can see, I left my original mistakes present, choosing not to erase the first incorrect placements of the nose. The reference photo is of me in a low pushup hold. Fitness is my other passion.

Yellow Eyes

Here is an ink drawing of a cat that is up for adoption with the ASPCA. A local nonprofit asked selected artists to create a portrait of an animal available for adoption. Whomever adopts this gray and white feline will also get a portrait of the same animal. Here I drew the cat in ink, using Micron black pen. I used Prismacolor colored pencils to add color to the eyes. I may add a bit more ink for detail,but overall this piece is done and it needs to get to the gallery to be in display with the other works. Enjoy!
