Illustration Friday: Communication

They are always talking on their shell phones.

This was my first idea for this weeks topic, but I wasn't able to develope it futher. I'm not crazy about it, but it will have to do.

A very quick demo for my class. Cowboys are cool.

Illustration Friday: Gravity 2

It is hard for a cow to overcome the effects of gravity, but it can be done with the proper ingenuity. Years ago I had a large empty spot on a wall that really needed something on it, so I painted this. I wasn't going to post old stuff anymore, but come on, it's a flying cow... overcoming the effects of gravity.

Sub-Level 2 progress report 6

Getting closer. I finished putting in the shelving last night. They are supported by cables attached to the ceiling. They turned out better than I thought they would. We also started moving in a little bit. The room needed a bright red couch, so I had to get one. The clock has been in our living room for years, but it finally found it's proper home in the studio. The desks are the last major thing left to do.

Illustration Friday: Gravity

I painted Isaac Newton in this painting. See if you can find him (you will have to open it to see it better). It is an illustration from Mrs. McBloom Clean Up Your Classroom. I needed to fill up this classroom with all kinds of Mrs. McBloom's junk. She already had an apple tree, so I thought it would be fun to have Newton getting hit by a falling apple. Okay, it's an old painting, but it just seemed to fit the topic. I think I will do something else too. Enjoy

Illustration Friday: Crash

I thought "Crash" sounded like a good biker name. Painted in gouache.

Sub-Level 2 progress report 5

With good help my wife and I were able to get the painting done. As you can see, my son gave us a helping hand, which he promptly painted. Anyway, the walls turned out really nice. I'm really happy with the results. Shelves and desks are next. Later.
