Well, the Tiki art opening was a blast! Great art, Polynesian dancers and rum drinks. Good times. The art was amazing. I felt a little out of my league. It's good motivation to keep pushing myself and become a better artist, though.

Drew this in the Austin airport waiting for my plane to Chicago. Drawing with a track pad is only slightly easier than drawing with a broken etch-a-sketch.
As I am now an official contributer on the Bad Spock Drawings Blog you will be seeing many more of these. Sorry. ;)
Found this sucker in my apartment tonight. His body's about an inch long. I have to admit, I don't really enjoy finding spiders this large in my apartment. I'm just glad I didn't wake up with it biting me or something.
I looked around on the internet and didn't find anything definitive as to what type of spider it is. It kind of looks like a hobo spider, but it didn't look exactly like the photos I saw, so I'm not sure. I set the little guy free outside.
Ironically, as a result, I was asked to become an official contributer to the Bad Spock Drawings blog. Woohoo! I think.
Go check out the blog. It's a lot of fun.
Don't you hate it when you're on your honeymoon in a tropical paradise and BAM!...the next thing you know, you're having to try and figure out a way to save your blushing bride from being sacrificed at the hands of blood-thirsty natives? To add insult to injury, all you have to work with is a pocket knife, some spare change and your hotel card key. It was the best honeymoon ex-Navy Seal Chip Carson could have asked for. It was a TIKI HONEYMOON!
I finally finished my painting for DVA Gallery's Tiki Art Show! The opening party is June 23 at DVA Gallery in Chicago. Maybe I'll see you there!
If you live in Austin, stop by, get a shave and a haircut and tell Debbie I sent you.

This is a logo illustration for a company in East Texas that makes custom smokers. I was pretty happy with how it came out. I think I managed to get the clients idea across (a pig trying to escape from a smoker) without being morbid and give it a sense of fun.
