Illuxcon coming up

I'm getting geared up to attend Illuxcon ,the first fantastic illustration art convention, next weekend in Altoona, Pennsylvania. Looks like it's going to be a good time and there is going to be tons of great art to see! If you also happen to be going, come find me and say hello.

The latest Monday night portrait is also drying and waiting to be scanned. Our model this week was local jazz singer Tish Adams. Image coming soon...

Monday Night Portraits Begin Again

Hurray! Monday night portrait session have begun once again after the summer break. We had a great model named Svetta for the first session last Monday, hopefully we'll have her back again.

Oil on board, 14"x18"

These sessions do great things for keeping my painting in practice. More to come...

Reoccuring Models

I don't see this guy very often at the coffee shop, but I like to draw him every time I get the chance. I've previously posted drawings of him here and from a less good angle here. There are many "regulars" at the coffee shop (one of which I suppose I am) if you look back through my blog posts you may be able to spot quite a few repeat sitters.

Just playing around with some Art Nouveau curves here

sketch, sketch, sketch

More from the coffee shop...

This is sort of a weird 'exquisite corpse' because the legs below belong to the girl above. I just ran out of paper on the above sketch, but I was interested in drawing her shoes for some reason.
