The Sorcerer… drawing and painting.  Photoshop and CS6 painting.  I have been in a rut.  Haven’t painted since February.

The Sorcerer

This is the first image after painting traditionally for my show.  Tough changing medias.  I will be working on some new material for a portfolio.  This image is partly from a challenge on FB group.  Also back to learning mode over on, and some with Bobby Chiu.  So let’s see what I come up with.  Been checking out some of work from Todd Lockwood, Michael Whelan, Frank Frazetta.   Love their work.


PromoShow is open to the public

Ladies Lunching

Experience the Power of Women

Exhibit Schedule:
March 1 – 31 , 2015

Reception –  Sunday, March 1, 2015; 1 – 3 PM

This exhibit in its 7th year running, was created to showcase great artworks created by women artists living and working in Northeast Ohio area.

The Gallery at BCA showcases the work of local and regional artists. A portion of the sale of artwork in the gallery benefits the general operation of BCA. If you are an artist interested in exhibiting work in the BCA gallery or shop, please stop by or call (440) 526-6232.

This is the second of three of ladies doing what they do.  This is a digital black and white using Photoshop CS6 and Wacom Intuos Pro.

I have solo show coming up soon in March of Black and White Flowers (new) images. Reason I know they are new is because I haven’t painted them yet.   I will probably finish up with this challenge this week.  But please check out the other artist at the other 2 challenges that are going on

No snow for the next couple of days, time to run errands.  This image High Hair Day is from the Facebook Challenge.  My cartooning is not going very well, really hard to get motivated to do cartoons.  I start thinking this is what I will be but end up creating a reality or near reality.  This was done on the Wacom Intuos Pro and Photoshop CS6

I remember in high school some high hair days.

High Hair Day



Missed a couple of days of the challenges.  So this is day 12 of the challenge.  I thought I would pick up a pencil and do this one.  I haven’t drawn with a pencil in a while.  Each type of media i use(digital, graphite, and acrylics) really is totally different to handle.  Although it takes me longer to produce an image in digital I think I live digital the best

The image is of Gordie Howe OC is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. From 1946 to 1980, Howe played twenty-six seasons in the National Hockey League and six seasons in the World Hockey Association; … Wikipedia

3.  Daily Drawing Challenge on Facebook

Some new friend asked me to do this portrait of Rowan Sebastian Atkinson, CBE is an English actor, comedian, and screenwriter best known for his work on the sitcoms Mr. Bean and Blackadder. Wikipedia

So thought I would share it.  I think this one is half way between cartoon and reality.  the coat pattern not the same as the original but it will do.  This took about 5 hours to do.  This will be in the 30 day challenge day 8. Digital Painting, Wacom Intuos Pro and Photoshop CS6.

Mr. Bean
