Gargoyle and viking

Just a couple doodles. The gargoyle came from a visit with a old friend. He had a great book about gargoyles and this just happened. The viking chick was just a quick sketch with a bit of color added.

Just a quick sketch painting. Nothing much.

Warm up

I've been slacking. I normally try to do a page of random sketch whatevers every day and I haven't done that for a while. Here is the page from yesterday. I will do better form now on, I promise.

Lunch Report

Our first Utah Artist Lunch was muy beuno! Thanks to everybody who came. It was fun to see old friends and to meet new people. I mean, in person and not just online. Fun was had. Food was eaten. Here's who came: Lael Henderson, Samantha (my daughter, and a very fine artist herself), Me, Mike Hoopes, Rob James, Aaron Anderson, Dillion Thompson, Shane Lewis, Joe Olsen and last but not least, Mel Milton. A very fine group of artists.

A few highlights:
Mel tells a funny story.

Everybody laughs.

Joe show off muscles during feats of strength.

If you couldn't make it this time and you feel like a loser, we will be doing the Artist Lunch thing again sometime soon. We will keep you posted.

Artist Lunch

I was talking with my friend Mel Milton, and we thought it was high time that we had lunch again. Then we thought it would even be better if we had lunch with all of our artist friends. So, here is the deal:

Time: Saturday November, 10th 1:00pm
Place: Bajio's - 160 E University Pkwy, Orem

All Utah Artists are invited. Heck, anyone is invited. Even the Canadian artists.

So, come and hang out, meet new friends, enjoy a fine burrito, maybe even do a sketch or two. And remember, if nobody else comes, it'll just be Mel and I. That's a little awkward.

Let us know if you're interested.
