Art & artists.

Timothy

I got a new program called Manga Studio. The program works really well with my Wacom Tablet.

I found a striking pic of Timothy Omundson, and decided I wanted to draw him. I think I’ll be using a lot more of Manga Studio, it seems to be a bit friendlier than Photoshop for drawing.

Red Bubble Shop

I decided to open a Red Bubble shop so I’m able to sell prints and tshirts of some of my paintings.

If you aren’t familiar with RedBubble.com, it’s a website where artists can sell copies of their art, on-demand.

I can now have my “Mirror Mirror Spock” painting on a tshirt! How cool is that?

It’s highly logical to be on a shirt.

I’m pretty tickled! I only make a percent of each sale, but how cool would that be to know someone was walking around in one of your paintings or illustrations?

Vincent Van Gorn mug available at my Society6 store.

I’ve also now added a Society6 Shop. So if you have a preference you now have a choice. Society6 seems to have a bigger variety of products you can order, but RedBubble looks like they give the artists a bigger cut of the sales.

Of Demons and Airbrushes

I recently got an airbrush, yay! I’ve been wanting one for a while. After much research, hemming and hawing I decided on the Iwata Revolution.

It is a gravity fed, airbrush with a dual-action trigger. I don’t have a compressor yet, so I’m using cans of compressed air for now. I can tell I have a lot to learn about airbrushes, my first few attempts were a mess. Now however I’m beginning to get a better feel for the proper amount of pressure, how to adjust it on the trigger and on the can of air.

I have painted my first piece with my airbrush, so, here are some pics!

 

 

I sculpted this pleasant fellow late in 2011, here are some pics of him in progress.

  

I used me new airbrush skills to paint and shade his skin, his teeth, eyes & horns were done with a regular old brush. I think airbrushes and I are going to have a long and happy relationship!

Cookies and Cakes

Well as you may know by now cookies and cakes are my latest passion! I’ve even made a site for them, although I might make a full-blown site one day, right now it’s just a blog. Check it out: That’s Pretty Sweet!

Halloween Time!

Autumn is my favorite time of the year, I’ve been painting and making ceramic Halloween pieces.
