Road-Trip! Speedpaint in a moving car :)

Well, in large part painted in the car.  I added my hands and some touch-ups later :)

This was about 1.5 of your earth months ago, on a Christmas road-trip with my sister.  Her more accurate interpretation of the *ahem* events can be found at:  link

I'm gonna miss that kid.  She's going to be spending the next 18 months in Rancagua, Chile serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. During that time she will be teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and doing service for the people there.  To anyone reading this, a place for her in your prayers would be much appreciated!

Prehistoric Valentine

This was a sketch for the BYU Sketchbook Club (check them out here!). Whoa, exclamation point with a period after . . . am I allowed to do that?  Should the previous statement have been parenthetical? Should I concern myself less with the intricacies of the realm of grammar in a post on a concept design blog?  Mayhaps . . .

In any case, the BYU sketchbook club toured the Dinosaur Museum where I work earlier this month, and sketched afterward.  In anticipation of the event and a significantly more significant event to significant people in our lives (coming up significantly soon), they decided to make this month's theme "Prehistoric Valentine."  Inspired, truly.  Or at least fun to draw :)

Note: While it may have been appropriate in former times to present to a lover a deer skull with roses protruding from the nasal turbinates, such practices are largely frowned upon today.  Dead things make poor valentines.  Unless, well . . . they're roses.

Dual Wielding

Tuesday night my girlfriend invited me to an experimental music concert of visiting professor William O. Smith, a master clarinetist. No joke, the man can play two clarinets simultaneously! To top it off, he is nearly 100 years old! He played at Jazz clubs in the 1940's, like the actual ones.  The actual 1940s.  As opposed to the . . .  made-up ones.  Take that, conspiracy theorists!  It was the fun :)

Sketchbook: Imagination (BFA portfolio 2011)

This was part of my BFA portfolio from last summer, I never submitted it back in the day, so yeah :) Random sketches from imagination, mostly in bic or sharpie pen with colors in Crayola Crayon. Gotta stick to yo roots! ;)
