Late Night painting

I woke up in the middle of the night and my mind was racing with an idea. And such a mood strikes me in the middle of the night, i cannot for the life me fall back to sleep so I get up and draw, paint, write, whatever. I do something to get the idea out of my head and on to paper.

So I painted a caricature of my friend Nolan. He is a innocent bystander in the idea. But when i got up and sat down to get the idea out of my head, he was so vivid in my mind at the time I had to start there first. My hope is that over the next few weeks i can get both him and the other characters animated for a little 30-60 second short in toon boom. That is if my life and all the other projects I am working on allow it. :D

The Animated Arts

Last Wednesday, I and a dozen other artist held an art show to show case the work of local arts who work in the media arts industry; from cartoons to video games. Along with us show casing our select work, there was a drink and draw held up stairs where you could watch a bunch of preforming artist perform their acts. The performers would hold a 30 second pose before their set and then do longer held poses in the back afterwards.
The night was fantastic and all the art was great. The hiccup I had was being held up in traffic for an hour while on my way over to hang up my art work before the start of the show. Anyway, if you want to check out the fantastic work, it will all be hanging up til the end of the month at Analog Cafe on SE Hawthorne and 7th in Portland, Oregon.

The few of the samples I hung up are from the series of illustrations that i am working up for my table top rpg. The Illustration are coming along nicely and I still hope to have the kickstarter for it set up by the end of the year.

Here is some of the work I have hung up. These are 2/3rds of the Illustration for the races that are in the game.

These can be brought as prints in my Redbubble Shop

Here are some more photos from the Art Show:
