Only Our Proportions were Godlike

It felt good to get the Indian ink out.  Such subtle squiggles.


Sort of teeth like

June 28, 2011

I think I need to take a break from the 15 min sci-fi landscape.  I feel like I am repeating the same mistakes over and over.  I think it is time to switch it up and repeat the same mistakes over and over in a different medium.

Back to the ink! (or maybe the pencil!)

More of the Same

Oh magenta volcano, why are you so plain?

A Little Less Santa Fe

Finally a 15 min sci-fi landscape with a pinch of beauty.  While encouraging, I am preparing to create a failure.

Of course, a hotel painting

Well, the risk is always there.  One minute things are going fine, and next thing you know you have a stinky painting.  Time to buy a plastic frame and leave it for hospitality to deal with.

15 Min Revelation

June 17, 2011

Today I learned that the most alien thing I can think of when pressed for time is a 3/4 sea anemone.  Why a whole anemone seems so common place, while 3/4 is so exotic is well beyond the scope of this blog.

Pitiful Reaction

No one wants to have two eyesores in a row, but come on 15 min sci-fi landscape, don’t play it too safe.

Time to hit the weight room.
