Dear Diary...

Alright...so here are some things. My computer has a virus now too...holy shit right! So I am at the library. Anyway...the top is a self caricature, then there are some sketches, and then there is a painting using water color. All the drawings and paintings, with acception to the caricature, are about the size of a credit card or a little more (the actual drawings, not the surface)...so detail is pretty graphic for now. I did the red pen drawings on illustration board, as I plan to paint them too. The main purpose is to focus on color theory, so I chose a small size to save time and money.

I feel pretty good today, other than the fact that my breathing is feeling a bit muffled. Tomorrow is another appointment at the dentist, and then I only have one more left. They have to seat my tooth for a crown, which means that they are going to be sawing it in half. For all those who have never had a root canal, take care of all your teeth. And if you have a food trap or problem area like I had (from braces or just natural), get it fixed. This is not fun.

I can't wait to finish these appointments and get back home...maybe that will help too

Haha...OK, that is all for now...enjoy!

Red Pen Study

Alright...so its been a couple of weeks since the last post. I have been in weird health...plus I just had a root canal done. It was not fun at all. And, on top of that...taxes and moving are on the list of things to do. So, I just said it was time for a breather.

At any rate, this is another red pen study that I have done. I really like working in ball-point, and I have been doing it since highschool...mostly because it is really convienient.

I did manage to do a small series of pen sketches that I will be posting soon too. I plan to paint them afterwords with some water colors and possibly acrylic.
