From time to time I'll ride my bike to and from work (depending on the weather), but I've never been to involved with the sport.  I have several friends who absolutely love it.  My friend Chris has asked me to paint him a picture of a biker.  He gave me creative control, so I just made this.  So for all you bikers out there who enjoy art, enjoy!

He's probably biking in like... tar... or something

Watercolor ink face

Here's a new one.  Still working out a watercolor style that I like.  I'm going to start expanding my projects into bigger paintings.  This is the stuff I do when I'm watching trailers or movies or something. Enjoy:

The New Path of Toast

I recently had a job interview(wish me luck) and it was for a craft mega company.  I would be doing designs all day, which sounds GREAT!   I would be working with Illustrator all day!  Think of how good at Illustrator I would become!  I could whip things out soo fast!  Anyway, I did this piece a little differently.  I wanted to stay in the same style I've been doing, but have it more realistic.  Guess who.

Might I add she has a blog of her own:

Dogs playing

Awhile ago my brother and I drove to California.  While driving we were listening to the podcast A.I.D. (Adventures in Design)  and a funny dog story came up.  For anyone who wants to hear it, it's episode 11.   I decided that it would be awesome to Illustrate that dog story, and show Billy and Mark.  So here it is:

This is for Billy and Mark.

Watercolor portraits

I'm still working on developing a style and with the time I have it's kind of difficult.  I'm digging these watercolor portraits and studies that I'm doing, and they're all working out pretty well.  I'm up for critiques.  I'm also up for commissions.  You can just leave a comment if you want me to do an art piece for you.  Anyway, here's the new watercolor Illustration:

New style

So I've just started exploring this new style of painting.  These are my first pieces and I feel like I can get a lot better from here so here they are:

My friend Adam, who has guest blogged for me before

I think I'm going to explore this  style for awhile.  Any feedback would be great!  Also some good news, I just sold a commission yesterday, and got a new commission too.  Business is slowly picking up!

Watercolor painting

The more I paint with watercolor the more problems I see with my own art.  It seems like I need to get used to painting again.  This Illustration took me a while.  Does anyone know what red head this is?

Watercolor portrait

My friend recently had a baby, so I thought I would do a portrait of her.  I totally ripped it off one of her photographs, so credit to her for taking the photo.  If your interested in looking at  her photography, here is a link to her tumblr account:

More practice paintings

Its been hard finding work after I graduated.  I mostly take very low paying jobs here and there.  It's all appreciated, but I'm trying to find a steady job.  It seems like all I can do are practice with different mediums and just keep moving forward.  Here are some drawings/ paintings I've done the past couple days:

Kevin Tong

Some of you know that we went up to California a little bit ago.  While we were there we met with one of our favorite artists, Kevin Tong.  We talked shop and he told us the ins and outs of screen printing.  The Screen printing community is always willing to help others out. We learned a lot while there, and it will help us advance in our printing techniques.

Monster, Goat, and Lion staredown

These are pieces that I did this week.   I decided to enjoy watercolor a little bit more.  The monster is a piece for Halloween.  The goat was a mistake, and the Lion I did for my portfolio submission to The Friend magazine for the LDS church.  Hopefully they'll work with me, and I can start a career.  Enjoy!

I imagine the lion eating the girl just after this moment

More practics paintings with watercolor

Here are some more water color things.  The bear, walrus alligator combo was done awhile ago, with a water color pencil and water.   The picture of the woman is Sharon Richmon.  She's my adopted grandma and has gone to all the major events in my life.

 Ink is a great medium, if you screw up, it looks like crap soooo....yeah lots of failed attempts.  ...Oh wait, we have computers now.....Yay ink!  More experimental stuff and practice paintings are coming up.

fat man

I draw fat people when I'm bored.  Fat man.

Really I'm just experimenting with brushes in Corel Painter.  Trying to experiment with colors at the same time.  I tried some of the lamest brushes in this one including impasto, but it kinda worked out for how I wanted it.  Corel Painter is pretty sweet that way.  So pretty much, what I'm trying to  say is here are some man boobs:

Fat man in a little coat...or, just fat man

lightning storm

One of the best things about living in Utah are the lightning storms.  It's to bad that they are few and far between, so I just drew one.
