Bookmark Contest

So, I made a little doodle on a scrap of treated watercolor paper and it turned into a bookmark! I think it's kind of cool and if you do too, here's a way to win your own. Comment on this post and become a blog follower using Google Friend Connect (just click the Follow button in the menu on the right) and I'll enter you into a contest. Current followers are welcome to join in too, just post a comment below.

At the end of the month, I'll pick 2 winners who will each receive their very own doodlebird bookmark. But not this will get a brand-new custom made bookmark with the bird of their choice on top! I'll probably throw a few other goodies in the winner's package too. Sound cool? Great, now just post a comment below and don't forget to include which bird you would like!

Winners will be drawn on Tuesday, August 31st. All comments posted before 12PM on that day will be considered entries. One entry per person. No purchase necessary. ;-)

Three Drawings in Progress

Very often I can't seem to complete one thing without moving on to something else. Eventually I'll come back around and finish it, but it's rare that I work on one drawing straight through. To illustrate this I present 3 drawings in various stages. The one on the left was begun ages ago (probably late June, early July) and I'm trying a mix of pencils with the usual ink and brush. The other two were both started in the last few days (the one on the right first actually). Hopefully I'll have all three finished by the end of the week.

UPDATE: I finished the one on the left last night (8/18/10) but I'm going to hold off posting it until it reaches it's new home. In the meantime, you can see all my portraits in this flickr set.

White Horse (Work in Progress)

I started work on my very first commissioned painting today! I'm pretty happy with the results so far but am open to any critiques or advice you may have.

UPDATE: Spent some time over the last 2 days working on this and I think it's done!
