Real Life Tales: Episode 243 - Lemen Appeal

Every so often I get questions from folks about Studio 2nd Street......and I-Phone addict Ron Lemen. Ron is a great guy.....if ever shuts up, but like ALL art teachers the man can babel on and on like a political radio pundit. 

I know there has got to be some spelling mistakes in this thing....cause I no spell well......

Oh and big thank you to my guest star - Taylor Smith - a man who has endured much of "negative" thinking and lived to tell the tale....

Real Life Tales: Episode 247 - Love Thy Neighbor

Apparently I'm not the greatest when it comes to talking to women.....

I took a break today to draw out this idea....been sitting for a while in a sketchbook.....and since I finished one freelance job - I had to do anything else but stare at the other assignments.....

Bettie Page


The sketch turned out WAY better than the digital finish......not that I hate what I did on the finish - it just doesn't reflect the sketch. This is the eternal problem I seem to face - I can create better sketches than I can finishes - or at least that's my opinion.

It's a New Year.....again?

Ugh...another year? Crrraaaaaaaaaaaaappppppppppppppppppppppp.......... Well this wasn't too far off from my EXCITING New Year's Eve....spent watching the Twilight Zone Marathon. Course if it had  been Scheckey sprawled out on the couch then he would have at least had Maribelle keep him company. 

I went though numerous layers on this digital Photoshop sketch. The best part of having the Cintqi is that it allows me to use it just like an animation light-box. So far I'm happy with most of the sketch - except Scheckey's legs and arms. They're not bad - but the design could be a little better. Hopefully I'll find some time to really sketch out the mechanics of the appendages. 

Thanks to everyone for all the comments on the last post! Great to know some people look this place over. 

Here's hoping that 2009 will have more opportunities than 2008.
