A Dizzy spell

Here's another I'm working on. I know, I know, the bell needs some work. All told, though, I'm pretty happy with how it's going.

Permission to board, captain?

So I decided to do something different for the skateboard deck. With any luck, I'll be able to corner the market on Spock-themed skateboards. I'm going to try and see if I can wash colour over top of this black and white painting, which could possibly speed up my painting process dramatically. Cara says if I apply a nice coat of matte medium over top, I should be able to sand it down to a nice smooth surface. Clemente says I should try using oils over top of my acrylics, which seems to be the way to go as well. How nice to be surrounded by pros!

I'll post it again once it's all gussied up nice-like. Stand by!

Weaker than what?

Hey! Here I am, still alive. I've been working on longer-term projects lately, but prepare to be barraged with scads of artistic goodies in the coming weeks.

For now, a quick (and poorly scanned) sketch of one John K. Sampson, of The Weakerthans fame. He's a fellow who manages to blend the sensitive lyrical stylings of a Bob Dylan with the rugged good looks of a Keith Richards. I think he might end up being painted on a skateboard deck. I'll keep you posted!
