Did I ever post this? Three of these sketches were in that YouTube video I did a few months back. This is as far as I got with this particular environment.

I have a friend who teaches grade 5. For her students' writing class, she has them write stories based on some of their favourite paintings of mine (which is a huge honour for me!)
I told her that the class could write a story of their own, and I would take a section and illustrate it for them. This was a point in their story where the protagonists are prematurely celebrating their conquest, unaware of a pending ambush.

More Portrait Sketches

My friend Steve was over yesterday, and I did a quick portrait sketch. This is oil on board, 8x10".

EDIT: Just added a quick sketch of Dean, one of the lighters at work. A few of us at the studio painted him over our lunch hour. I think the brushstrokes in that one are evidence of the time limit.

Working On A Book!

I've been looking forward to announcing this! I'm in the early stages of putting together a book. The book will be a collection of personal illustrations (like this one, and this one). I want the book to be comprised mostly of new images, so for that reason my updates here might be a little slow, as a lot of my efforts will wind up going into the book. Maybe I'll leak a painting or two every now and then...like the WIP above. I currently have no estimated publication date, but I'll keep everyone posted!
