A Special Gift...

Hi all, recently my Wife asked me to draw her up a custom "jigsaw puzzle" greeting card for a co-worker. She originally wanted to give her an actual jigsaw puzzle featuring an Oompa Loompa, but I guess it's hard to find a jigsaw puzzle featuring a 30 year old movie character. Anyhoo, here is my finished card. Done in pencil, pen and markers. After I completed it and was totally relieved I didn't make any blobs or mistakes, I really F'ed it up by spraying it with some permanent sprayfix. Needless to say, the pen bled everywhere giving it a permanent fuzzy appearance. I... was... pissed. I don't know what I was thinking, I guess it was force of habit. The markers didn't run, just the pen I did the basic outlines with. Well, whatever, enjoy!

How's this for quick turnaround! Right after I posted my Superman pic(I had worked on that on and off for a week) I sat down with a new idea for another color study I had gotten from some wrapping paper I saw at work. Anyhoo, I always liked maroon and blue together(that's the combo on the wrapping paper) and the first thing that came to me was swaying palm trees against a blueblue sky with crystal clear waters... "sigh". Back to the pic! Anyway, I sat down and banged this out in an hour and a half. All that practice is starting to payoff!

Hey, Superman!

Hello helloo! I'm back again with another exciting practice image. This time I was inspired by the orange glow at sunset out my office building window, so what would be the best thing to see outside a high office window? Superman of course.
