It is very surreal to see your own look-alike avatar on-screen playing an instrument in a band that doesn't really exist. Gotta love it! Had fun with some of my kid-friends creating our own band and jammin' for hours!!!

We look like a cross between a retro Nirvana grunge band and a fifties Jersey-du-opp-band! Weird but fun...!!! Wiiiiiiiiii... Look Mom boxing gloves for hands!

I still go to life drawing sessions every week (these are from last week), and I still love it. For me it's relaxing and a good way to keep up on your chops.

At school I am often doing demos showing technique, medium, drawings etc. I often grab models or students to get a drawing down before I start throwing the paint around. Here are few to give you an idea...
"Eva" (above)
acrylic and pencil
-in-class exercise.
"Julie" (right)
watercolor pencil
-one of my most favorite sketching mediums, great for on the fly or when you can't stay long enough to paint it out... just add water later!!

acrylic and gesso over ink and pencil
-messy is best, let it ride, go with it!!

gouache over gesso and pencil
-it's all about the light.

-quick drawing directly with the paint.

Couple of juicy charcoal life-drawings. Christopher our model wore this SWEET Mexican sombrero at life-drawing a couple of weeks back. So I decked him out drunkard style! These were twenty minute drawings done on 18x24in. Canson paper using the heaviest, darkest Char-Kole (the brand)I could find. Great fun!
