This is a painting I did for my brother in law and his family. Every year on my wife's side of the family we swap names for Christmas to see who is buying for whom. And every year the couple that gets a present from us says to me, "Instead of a present you could just paint us something." Well this is what came of it this year. No I will not be putting up any of the past years paintings, because I am too embarrassed to do so. That's a good thing though right? I mean the fact that I think everything I did last year sucks, means that I am improving, right? Maybe I'm just getting better at seeing what sucks and what doesn't. So enjoy the super hero family while you can cause in a week or two I probably won't like it anymore. Oh and by the way, my brother in law asked that he and his family be turned into super heros. So he, his wife and his three kids all have super powers. You get to decide what those powers are and how they can be used for the good of mankind. Enjoy.

I've decided that most of my drawings do not look finished enough. I get about half way done and then I move on to something else. In an effort to correct that I have decided to start inking things up. It was much easier to scan and then color this way and I really am pleased with the results. There's still lots to learn about how to make it really sing, but I count this as a valient first try. Oh, why did I decide to draw a zombie boy you ask? Well I was out at a party and everyone was sitting around drawing zombie boys and I just gave into the peer pressure. Don't you judge me. Enjoy.

Ok, obviously this isn't my son. Or more accurately this is not my son as he is, but rather as he would like to be. My son is 4, and he loves cars. Not just the movie that just came out on DVD (although he does love that quite a bit) but just cars in general. He owns probably 300 hotwheels cars due mostly to me buying him one everytime we go to Walmart (it's as cheep as a candy bar and lasts alot longer). So we play cars at home and most of his room is taken over by either his hotwheels cars or the various larger car/truck/tractor type vehicles that I or others have given him. Well like I said the pixar movie Cars just came out on DVD and my son is "happy as a tornado in a trailer park" (quote from the movie) and I got to thinking what Lucas would look like if he were in this movie. Well my son runs all over the place and has recently started to climb all over furniture and the unfortunate people that happen to be sitting on it so I made him a jeep. An off road jeep. Why is he yellow you ask? Because I like yellow, plain and simple. The large rearview mirrors were intended to be his ears which stick out of his head. (It's harder to tell the more his hair grows. Anywho, I think I'm going to have to paint this one up for him and frame it for his room (I'll also need to make sure he's wearing a diaper at the time because he just might wet himself.) Enjoy.

Thought I would have some fun doing a ninja. This started out as a basic Karate Kid pose (don't tell me you didn't spend three months of your life perfecting that move when you were a kid like I did, cause I know you did. You still do when no one's watching don't you?) but I also made him kind of rockin' out. (look at the hands). Originally he was going to be a dark ninja, but the face ended up bing so small that I thought white might work better. Enjoy.

Everyone at work here is playing a cool game that has a little robot in it that rolls around and picks stuff up. Thought I would do my own little robot just for kicks. I had more fun doing all the bits and bobs on this guy than I thought I would. Normally I steer away from sciency techy junk because I don't like all the details it requires, but I like this one. There may be hope for me yet. Enjoy.
