Too cool, and Fantastic.

 So here I sit, and I must say I have really been wanting to write again for a while. So here we have it. 
 First last week my wife and I Hit the Last Rites Gallery opening of the Southern Show. I'd first seen this fella's work (Brian Viveros) last year at a Last Rites group show, and really dug it. So to say I was a bit excited by  getting the opportunity to check out a large body of his work is a bit of an understatement. So that so with that having been said, check it out. http://www.lastritesgallery.com/shows_southern.php
 I came away from the show very excited, and really inspired. 
  Than days later In the mail arrives my DVD copy of Daniel Santos's "book cover illustrations, with Daniel Santos" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWJ54m9yX38
If you've not heard of it, well than now you have, and if you have, well than go get your copy. Its like 2 disks, chock full of incredible info on drawing, painting, and professionalism, when dealing with your clients/editors. As a tattooist, who doesn't paint in oils (yet), I found the DVD both interesting, and helpful, on many levels. 
 Check out this fella's web site at www.dandossantos.com A truly phenomenal artist, and person. 
 Which brings me to my next bit of bloggin. My next painting. IM gonna go in a different direction (not too different, now). Like I said between the show last week, and this DVD, IM hoping to take this painting to a slightly higher level for me. Keep an eye out for what comes next. IM hoping for at least a bit of a change from my norm. But we all know what they say about old dogs, and new tricks.

It has been Ooooh Sooo Long!

  OK, So, i've been away, a rather inordinate amount of time. And for that I do Apoligize. 
  So here we have it .IM posting a piece done for a friend birthday. I'd done it a few weeks ago, the night before I'd left to met my lovely wife in Las Vegas. And as an excuse to fill some room here on the blog, IM including her here. She's titled "One Horny Gal" 
  The second is a really poor photograph of the latest piece done as a commission for a friend in Vegas. She's entitled sprinkles, due to the obvious cheesy Airbrush background. 
  A lot happening here in CT land. IM hoping to see a light at the end of the tunnel sooner than later. But we all know how that usually turns out. So till next Time.
