        I have a list of images as long as my arm and even if I could do one a day, it would take me two months!  I should be excited but that’s not the word for it. Overwhelmed is.

       Not only that, most of these are getting a background. I can do it,  but it requires a little more thought and planning. You look at certain people and ideas come to mind. For instance this guy had a very primal theme; Atlas.

        He’s not a massive person. Still the image gave me a good starting point. I ran with it from there.

       So this is as far as I got before I had to leave for work. Promised piece is coming up!  In the meantime, enjoy your day.

         Ok, deep breath.

        Hey guys!  It’s going to be an awesome week for me. I took up the challenge of creating a color image with multiple themes. Since I haven’t done this before, I figured, “why not?”. Yes I’m a dumbass. Oh well…

image

         The themes were a servant, night lights,  reflection, perspective and a landscape. So the kid in me figured Silver Surfer on his board looking down on the nightside of earth, staring at our cities. Bam! Combo!

         So far, I’d gotten most of the way when I was reminded (well, told) that I needed to finish the digital piece I’d started. Makes sense.

For an added bonus, the hand of Galactus!

       After a little more work,  it turned out pretty nice.  Of course, the talent is the real arbiter of it’s value, but sense I almost never draw background stuff,  I was pleasantly surprised. All this while listening to enough Evanescence to kill almost anyone. I worked harder at playing this weekend than my actual job!

        Man, I miss work.

TaDaaaaa!

2015 already?

   This is my chopper. I’ve been working on it, a little at a time,  for about 5 years. That’s WAY to long!  So I laid out everything and told myself that I will be riding it in Rolling Thunder this year. Wish me luck!

    I say that because a lot of things are on my plate. I’m not sure when I became so busy; a few of my goals are self-assessed. I have no down time built into my life.  There are the twelve art projects I have to work on at night. The three vehicles, none of which are fully operational. The home repair projects my ex left me. Oh, and the pending bills that I’m still playing catch up with as a result of said marriage going into the crapper. All that.

     The good news is that I’m getting a new car in the fall and selling off the other two. I won’t owe anything but my mortgage by August. I’m going to Hawaii in October…

     Life. No matter what, its always an adventure.
