I drew this Friday afternoon at the Dallas Museum of Art. They have this really beautiful complete suit of 17th century samurai armor. It also had the sword, bow and quiver of arrows.

Info: Late Momoyama period- early Edo period. Early 17th Century.
Presented to Mori Kobayakawa Takakage by the emperor.

Post-It Note Art

Post-It Note: Tuskin Raider Post-It Note: Jawa & R5-D4

When I'm warming up my drawing hand, or in need of a break at work, I do Post-It Note art. They're fast, fun, and some of them actually come out half decent. These two are done completely from memory. Yes, I've seen Star Wars WAY too many times. If there is such a thing, that is.

This is a custom KidRobot Munny I painted for a commission. I customized the ears and made his walking stick out of Super Sculpey. You can see in-progress photos here.
I should be making more art posts this week before I head to Dallas for the holidays, so check back later in the week!


Second Annual 12 Bars of Christmas Pub Crawl

Taste of Winter

I got my first little taste of Chicago winter yesterday. It was really cool getting snow. I'm sure the novelty will have worn off by the end of the winter, but right now I'm digging it. Click here to see more icy tree photos.
