Daily Sketch - Skater Dude!

Daily Sketch - Skater Dude! Out here in SoCal, skateboards here are pretty much the usual sight you'll see, much like the bicycle in the midwest. A great way of transportation, thats easily carried into any store and such. I can't help but watching the smooth motion of the skaters as they glide around corners and thru cross walks. Tools: Copic multi-liner and brush pen

San Diego Comic Fest 2013

We had a great time at the SD Comic Fest this past weekend! Met a lot of good peeps, did a lot of convention sketches and commissions. Sat next to some great friends and comic creators. Here's a few pics of the event, as seen from behind the table (which, unfortunately, I rarely left). Thanks to all who supported my art, including these fine people in the photos! :-)

13 hour painting

So here I present you a peak from line art to finished work "Solo Veno, takes a walk" done in acrylic.   The Original piece is 11X14 on wood and will be offered for viewing and purchase at San Gabriel Valley Art Exhibit June 10th-August 10th.

Painting is still somewhat new to me, this being only my 2nd in over a decade and 4th in my lifetime.

I got to say I really like it!!!  I like making mistakes that cannot be undone with the click of a button and having something tangible in hand at the end of the creative process.   

 A 13 hour painting you say?  Well truth in fact is with all the planning work that goes unseen, thumbnail sketches, photo references, digital rough painting, and transferring a clean line sketch to board; it might well run closer to 30hrs.

But that process of sitting and mixing alone through the night and seeing the sunrise through the cracks of the venetian blinds is the magic hour, my 13th hour.

 Were ready or not my brain cries Finito and I go crashing to sleep only to be awakened by the cat with the Labyrinthian gut, Sergio.

Yes I love painting and now I'm dreaming up some more.

That I hope you will enjoy,

Mikey>( ' - ' )<

Art Update

  Just a quick digital painting (Photoshop) of Women's MMA Champ, Ronda Rousey.
Its amazing how she can go from intimidating to friendly.  The smile might be next.

DETAIL:  I worked 'zoomed out' so that I would not get to 'tight' on this.  I wanted a loose, spontaneous feel to it.
