Over the past few weeks I had been in talks with a friend from high school who was interested in having me create a pencil portrait of her four kids. I was more than happy about the news, seeing as I love drawing, and I especially love drawing people. After a nice "catch-up" phone call and a few short emails back and forth, I was provided with some outstanding photos of her kids to work with.
I went into Photoshop and created two concepts for the portrait; one horizontal layout, and the other a vertical one.

Mr. Kieffer, and I tend to take randoms journeys through the flat lands of north-central Florida. Rarely is a destination strictly set on the offset of these excursions, but inevitably we end up stopping by at least one graveyard per trip for a little bit of tomb browsing and photo taking. A previous exploration led to a corpse farm filled with fairly new crops, but this past week we got to see some pretty awesome graves amongst other things. There was no particular order to the layout of the cemetery, it sprawled out over hundreds of yards in all sorts of directions. The trees were twisted and ominous, and some of the headstones marked the final resting spot of Confederate soldiers. Enough of the blabbing, I'll let the pictures do the talking. Enjoy.

I used my trusty iFrogz stylus on this one, and the experience was AWESOME! Drawing on the iPad is fantastic, and quite responsive. I'm looking forward to investing in a pressure sensitive stylus in the near future, and look forward to the drawing capabilities that will provide.
I realized most of my previous Batman drawings were quite stoic, so I amped up the emotion and rage on this one. Enjoy! Check the pics below to see the multiple layers/progress.

I recently invested in an iPad and I'm pretty freakin stoked about it! As an artist and illustrator the iPad provides me with a high quality, efficient way to showcase my work to clients, and work on concepts/projects while on the go. I'm really amped about all the art/drawing apps that are available! This is a test run of the BRUSHES app for the iPad. For this painting I went with The Batman again. Wanted to draw something familiar and mostly test the specs of painting on the iPad. I dig it. Plans for future investment will be the Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus - it's pressure sensitive on the tablet!!!

Number 6 to the paint droppin drama from his eyes. KD ain't playin, make it rain from the skies. A girl I saw from Monday and a girl who holds my heart. Geometric planes and places, felt like home from the start. Orders up darlin but your feet they smell like cheeses. Stars shining bright, come in one, twos, and threeses.
