Odie Says 'Ruff!'

Image
Actually I think Odie, from the Garfield comic strip series, generally says "arf," but he could say "ruff." Technically, he's thinking "ruff." He usually barks out loud. I drew this with an Odie salt or pepper shaker as a reference. I think I like Odie even more since my family and I got a puppy a few years ago.

Rai: Welcome To New Japan

I'm currently thinking about ideas for artworks. I haven't exactly got anything art related to post in this blog entry. Comics are an inspiration for my art, and there's one in particular that I'm reading as of late. I'm currently reading the graphic novel Rai: Welcome to New Japan. It's like a cross between Blade Runner and manga. Rai is the hero of the story. There's a character he keeps talking to in narration, named "Father." The book is from the comic book publisher known as Valiant. I think I'm half way through it right now. It's an interesting book.

12th Anniversary of "Vanessa Minnillo" Artwork

Image
Here's a picture I drew of Vanessa Minnillo over ten years ago. I previously blogged about it here and here. I got it published in the February/March 2005 issue of Lowrider Arte. You can see the cover below (my drawing is on the inside though, not the cover):


I'm proud to have gotten an artwork in a national publication like Lowrider Arte. It's not the first time I got art published in Lowrider Arte. You can see a post on my art blog about it at the second link above.

12th Anniversary Of "Christian Bale As Batman" Artwork

Image
It's been about twelve years since I made this artwork. I think I actually colored it a year or so later because I didn't get my Wacom tablet until maybe 2005. Batman Begins came out in 2005, and I was really excited about it. I'm a big Batman fan and there hadn't been a Batman film since Batman & Robin in 1997. They had released promo pictures and things like that before Batman Begins came out. In my opinion, Christian Bale was a great Batman. I think this artwork turned out really well. I might want to do one of Ben Affleck as Batman some time.

Happy Valentine's Day 2016!

Valentine's Day is coming up. I thought I'd blog the above artworks again. Everybody have a happy Valentine's Day!

National Pizza Day

"I Love Pizza"
Today is National Pizza Day! Apparently there's a single day AND an entire month for pizza. Pizza is one of the greatest foods in the history of the planet. I'm thankful that it was invented. Happy National Pizza Day!

If You're An Artist, You May Want To Get A Blog

Over the weekend I found an interesting article that covers why all artists should have blogs. You can check out the article here. It's an interesting article, and it makes some good points about why you may want to get a blog if you're an artist. So, I recommend checking out the article at the link.

Spirograph Drawing 2

"Spirograph Drawing 2"
Here's another Spirograph drawing. I did some Spirograph drawings a night or two ago. This one was the best one of all of them, so I decided to blog it. I think I'm getting the hang of Spirograph more now. Spirograph is fun!

Stuff And Things

I don't have anything in particular to post about today, but I've been on a roll posting three times a week. I think I'm going to do some art studying. One book in particular that I think I'll be studying is Christophr Hart's Human Anatomy Made Amazingly Easy. I've got some ideas for artworks that I may try to work on this month. So, I'll try to keep busy with my art.

February 2016

It's the beginning of a new month. I did do quite a bit of art last month. I hope to do more this month. I'd like to try to draw everyday. I've some ideas for drawings that I'd like to do. I intend to be working on some minor drawings and some major projects.
