In the process of moving to a new place... will try to post when I can, but until I have my new studio set up, it'll probably just be little sketches and things.

Hope everyone had a nice Memorial day weekend!

During the day I mulled over what I wanted to add to this piece to finish it... Trees? Cities? Robots? Monsters? Rabbits?

Okay, rabbits.

I was just experimenting with textures, and it kind of formed into this crazy froth monster... and then a little guy showed up.

It's been a good weekend -- framed and shipped off pieces for two shows coming up. One in San Francisco, and one in Los Angeles. I'll have a separate post with more details soon!

Face 05 02 10 - gouache and watercolor on paper

Lots of failed pieces this weekend... but every failure has something good about it.
Here's a chunk of a piece that I ultimately scrapped... but I like how this face turned out =)
