Restaurant sketch

while dining at Lucilles BBQ I couldn't resist capturing this funny duo on a business lunch date.

The Ladders album art!

I've always been a fan of good album art on jewel cases, and always thought it really does help me determine wheter or not I should invest in the music. So when it became time to design my band's album art for our upcoming EP, I tried to keep it as simple and subjective as possible. There is a little backstory to the fish, but I thought about how this would catch eyes in relation to all the other CDs around it (if on a store shelf).

Plein-air studies

So I've been taking the plein air painting course over at CSUF to gain a more sophisticated sense of color and I think it's paying off...although I've still got a long way to go. I never realized how much stuff there is to take in! It's really tough, but it's totally fun to paint outdoors.
