Owl portrait!

The owl portrait is finished! This is my version of the Temple owl and it goes out to my wife. She currently works there and doing graduate school there as well. She is wicked smart and I'm damn proud of her!

It's Thursday night drawing

It's Thursday night drawing with Frankie.  He is always there when I draw. Sometimes Frank likes to rub on my pencil as I draw. That is not acceptable. Another dog is up on the drawing table here. This one is of Happy.

Dog portrait in progress...

After some procrastinating, I've put the pencil to the paper and made some lines. It's starting to look like the dog portrait I intend it to be, yes!  Stay tuned for the finished dog portrait.

Bunch of procrastinators.

The cats really like to take my chair when I'm not using it. As soon as I get up one of them is surely going to get right on it.  They know how to help me put off a pet portrait. Time to kick them off!

Sunday morning.

A day late to post this, oh well.  The day started out rainy, so, it turned into a drawing day.  I don't always let myself stay in to draw all day because I usually want  to get  out on one of my bikes to ride.  Leo kept me company.

Cat nap

I'm going to start drawing this pit bull portrait but Frankie cat is taking a nap.

Sketching out a pit bull portrait.

Today I am sketching out a pit bull dog portrait. One day I  plan to save a pitbull for a dog of my own. Until then, I'll just have to draw dog portraits of pitbulls.

Drawing with a little help.

I'm getting a little help from a friend to draw this dog portrait. Frankie just loves to lay down on my drawing table while i'm drawing, sheesh.  Stay tuned for Lucy's finished dog portrait!

Alley kitten portrait!

Here is the alley kitten portrait.  The kitten is wearing an eagle claw necklace.  I gave the kitten an eagle claw necklace because I always see the kitten eyeing the birds readying for sneak attack.

Big Poppa

This is Big Poppa.  He is one of the backyard alley cats.  He tends to keep his distance from people but  he will hang out on the back deck with me.

Drawing the alley kitten

I'm drawing the alley kitten portrait. It's nice to get back to drawing a cat portrait after drawing a few dogs and a chicken.  

Friday, August 26, 2016

Framed and hung!

I framed and hung "Kauai wild chicken." This one was done for the wife to always remember our trip to Kauai.

The alley kitten!

I have a backyard alley kitten that needs a home!  This kitten is very playful and social.  I have been feeding the kitten, so the kitten has been eating very well.  The momma cat has been taking great care of the kitten as well.  If anyone in the Philly area is looking for a great kitten then please contact me!  I'll throw in a kitten portrait too.

late night sketching...

I did some late night sketching of the alley kitten last night. This kitten is wearing an eagle claw necklace.

Surf's up for Hyman!

Surf's up for Hyman! Here is another Philly dog portrait, yeah! Hyman could be found taking walks in Philly wearing a Hawaiian shirt.  He has now taken the big move from Philly to NYC.  I hope to see you there some day soon.

The process of drawing...

This Philly dog will be vibing that Hawaiian feel.  Time to start drawing that Hawaiian shirt. Stay tuned...

Hawaiian shirt for the Kauai chicken

I've been thinking back on my trip to Kauai from last year. There are so many wild chickens all over that island. It was quite the spectacle!  I just had to draw a Kauai wild chicken with a Hawaiian shirt. Here it is in the works.  Stay tuned for more...

Here is Arthur!

I got a little behind in drawing Arthur and updating the world.  With that being said, here is Arthur!  I have been out riding my bikes a lot.  But doing this puts my art behind. It can be a battle of what takes priority.  There are more dog portraits on the way, stay tuned. Enjoy!

Arthur in the works.

I have a dog portrait in the works.   This is Arthur.

Wren's baby portrait!

It's Wren, princess of the wolf gods.  My friends up in Vermont asked me to draw their daughter's portrait.  They said they wanted a strong woman theme to her.  I immediately thought of Princess Mononoke.  If you haven't seen this animated movie, then go do so! Like now!  The character, San, is the princess of the wolf gods.  Also known as Princess Mononoke.  So, here she is, Wren.  Enjoy!

Drawing a new baby portrait

I'm drawing a baby portrait. This is Wren, the princess of the wolf gods.

The Wild One.

The "Wild One" is finished!  I took care of this kitten for almost a year till I moved.  He was one of the back yard cats and was definitely a wild kitten.  I'm sure he is still a wild cat out in Philly.  This cat portrait is dedicated to all those kittens and cats out there that live out in back yards, streets, or abandon buildings.  I wish I could save them all.

Saturday morning drawing.

My coffee mug is empty.  Time to get more coffee.  This cat portrait is of a kitten I was helping that lived in my old back yard before I moved earlier this year.  I'm sure this cat is doing fine, but I still wonder what this wild one is doing.

Cookie's cat portrait framed!

Oh yeah!  Here is a picture of Cookie's cat portrait framed.  Lookin' good!

Self portrait

I've been doing some cleaning and organizing of the new art studio. In doing so, I came across this self portrait I had stored away.  Nice to find this gem! Gives me some ideas in my brain.  Enjoy!
