Happy Birthday!

Last thursday was my wife's birthday. I had gotten her some stuff for her birthday but she was with me when we bought it. So I wanted to suprise her with something and decided to do this. I've drawn her a few times and the results have never been good. I always get nervous about making it look like her which of course makes me screw up the drawing and it looks bad. This time I decided to play to my strengths and just make it cartoony and cute. This was the end result and I'm pretty happy with it. She seemed to like it too so that's nice. Enjoy.

Pug Dog

Here's another pug dog. I seem to draw quite a lot of these don't I? This one was inspired by a drawing of a pug by Elaine Bogan. You can check out her stuff at The pug on her blog is just gorgeously hideous and I had to draw another. I drew it a couple sunday's ago at church and just colored it up for a bit of fun. Enjoy.

Dia de los Muertos Painting

This is a painting I started last october. I really love the Dia de los Muertos stuff down in Mexico. I find it cool that they deal with death and skeletons and all that in such a way. Sure there's skeletons and stuff, but they all look so cheerful and colorful. I love it. So the other day I pulled this out and put a few touches on it and I'm calling it done. enjoy.

Happy Ocho de Mayo

This was a drawing I did the other day for Cinco de Mayo and never got to put it up. It's a bit late, but I still like the drawing so here you go. enjoy.

Once upon a mattress

Last night I went and saw my little sisters production of "Once upon a Mattress". She was the lead in it and she was awesome. When I heard she had gotten the lead I decided I would like to draw her something kind of cool in celebration of it. This is what I came up with. For those who don't know the story in "Once upon a Mattress" is basically a comical telling of the Princess and the Pea. It was tons of fun. Enjoy.

CD cover

This last week my brother emailed me and asked me to do some art for a CD cover for him. He had written a small musical and was getting together everything to make a CD out of it. The title of the play is (I'm pretty sure) "I'm Dying". He wanted me to play with the Happyface/Sadface drama masks only to have them both be sad. This is what I was able to come up with. I didn't have too much time, but I'm still pleased with how it turned out. It was also really fun to just paint soetehing a bit different and go with the flow. Enjoy.

Flowers for my wife

I love getting my wife flowers. It's something so small and yet it just makes her day. Sometimes if I'm out getting milk or whatever I will also get her one of those small bouquets that don't cost too much (wish I could afford more but that whole starving artist thing). Yesterday my wife had kind of a hard day and I wanted to do something for her and I couldn't go get her some flowers so this morning I did this instead. I hope she likes them.
