And here's a weekend doodle page. It kind of evolved into some setting. There a girl/or boy, don't know, in a cave, being threatened by monsters walking about. There's also some type of eagle-beaked hero coming to the rescue (we assume). This is one of those things that you leave open in a convenient place, and pick at it every now and then... sometimes turning into weird ideas. Out of all of it, I like that beaked guy in the corner the most. Its the weird scarf thing.
And a couple of close ups.

old pieces just got up and yelled "I am still here!"
I was surprised yesterday morning by an e-mail from good folks from a well known performing arts school. They asked if they could use a piece of mine for a non profit fund raiser event. I was very pleased that the request came from an institution that fosters the arts in a large scale.
The original piece dates back to xmas of 2010. It depicts a combo of robots, with musical instruments. In particular, it represents the idea of our local version of Christmas caroling, where groups of revelers visit their friends bringing music and merriment during the holidays.
Anyway, three years later, it comes back to say hi in this way.
"Bravo", a non profit group that fosters the study of performing arts (Cranbrook, in Michigan) thought my piece fit well with their fund raising effort, and I cheerfully gave them the go ahead to use the piece.
Here's their page to be printed for the event. They were kind enough to send me their finished layout.
It goes to show, you never know who will be touched by your art. Have a great art time, folks.... and keep creating.

Here's a quick set of crayon on tablecloth sketchings. I escaped from my crazy work week yesterday, and indulged in a little family restaurant visit. From left to right, caricature of my daughter, then a fast and furious haunted house (before the waiter plopped my meal on top of it), and finally, my daughter's own rendition of me (pretty neat style she came up with, eh?).
