He should have trusted his instincts...

...and stayed South a little longer. It's too early in the year to come back to Wisconsin, Mr. Goose.

Wireless is Green part III - Inking

1. Concepts
2. Drawing

I changed the sketch a bit.

Not sure how many new pieces I'll have up this week. I'll be working some OT for work, so it may just be old drawings or sketches. Thanks for your patience!

Fish bait

Becky was trying to capture the flight of the bird when this menacing fish emerged and swallowed the hapless thing...She has a great eye and fast reflexes!

A little stroll...

...the view outside of Becky's hotel she stayed at in Florida for her 1st business trip.

The weather didn't follow her because we are under a Winter Storm warning until 6. Boo!

Let it be sunny!

In STL. Nobody believed me when I told them I saw some hands parting the clouds...wait until they see this picture!

Needle in the clubhouse...

Trouble in Yankee land...

Not sure if this idea is too obvious. Well, you need obvious ideas every now and then... :-)

Wireless is Green (sketch)

Here's the sketch for the Fast Company article I found that asks "How Green is Wireless". I like the sketch, but I may need to tighten up the leaves to resemble the dollar sign a little bit more...

Ailing healthcare

Playing around with textures. Not sure if it's too much, or not enough. I certainly like the direction, though...

Let's Celebrate!

It's my wife Becky's birthday today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY! She's in Florida for her job, so hence the Florida candle.

I love you, baby, with ALL of my heart and soul!

Doodle Doo!

When I say I'm going to "observe", that means I'm going to draw whatever the hell comes to mind. And that's what I intend to do!

Wireless is Green

Amongst the millions of paths that I take, I've decided to scour the web for articles of interest to illustrate. I generally go to magportal.com. It has many different categories of topics.

These thumbnails are for a small article I found in Fast Company asking "How Green is Wireless". I have 3 main ideas, but I may add a few more. I always think having a few more expands your possibilities.

Do you ever get that feeling that your first idea is the one, but with schooling you feel that you need to have a few more on paper? I get like that sometimes. Like I said above, having more ideas is very beneficial, but sometimes that first idea is the one. I'm going to create the main image using the plant as dollar sign and tower.

We're being followed...

He kept a safe distance, but we knew he was there.

Check out my gear. You can call me "Biff".

Mr. Pitiful

I was quite crabby yesterday. In fact, it has been sometime since I've been that crabby.

This is Wisconsin

I've been listening to Bon Iver quite a bit lately and thought of doing a series of ink drawings inspired by his music. This is a mixture of ink and digital.

FYI, I'm never happy with my work. It's been quite some time since I've done ink washes.

The hills are alive...

...with someone struggling to get up them! Actually, it wasn't that bad at all. It was a big hill, but I fought through it.

A little breaky-break

We could float on the snow! Not really, but it was cool to forge our own path...
