I haven't posted in awhile, and I thought this would be a good opportunity for a blog post. My sister made me aware of a contest from musician and former American Idol contestant, Casey Abrams, on Facebook. The contest is to draw an ice cream cone beating Casey in a sport of your choice, and you have three hours to complete it. I'm not sure if he means three hours from the time he posted the post, or if you have three hours once you start. I'd thought about doing a drawing of them playing chess, but I don't know much about chess. I ended up going for basketball. I was going to do a farther away shot from the side, but I decided to give it a better view, and this is what I came up with. I think it looks pretty cool. My sister said that Casey does contests like this often, and that he posts the drawings to his Facebook page. I don't know how long the contest is open, but the post for it is on Casey Abrams' Facebook page, here. So, if you're interested, feel free to check it out.
My sister made some decorations for my birthday using a machine that makes cutouts of silhouettes. One of the things she made was of The Punisher symbol. It already looked cool, but I photoshopped it, and I think this looks cool too. I like how the skull has a metallic look to it. My sister made the cutout of The Punisher skull with a foil-like paper, which has adhesive on the back. She put that on a black paper circle. The paper is more or less like you'd use for a scrapbook. It's one of my favorite decorations she made. Below is a picture of the decoration.
Happy Earth Day! It's great that the Earth became livable eons ago and that we came into existence on it. Different people have different ideas of how we came into existence on it, but I think the important thing is that we live on a beautiful planet that has pretty much everything a human being could want or need. Earth is awesome!
I'm trying out a new art blog design. the side bar can be seen by clicking on those three lines up top toward the left. There are new templates on Blogger so I thought I'd try one of them. We'll see how this goes.
