I am finding a great challenge in drawing. The need to achieve a high degree of draftsmanship has always been there, but I am realizing like never before how important it is to make each drawing entertaining. I am dissatisfied with most of my initial efforts and find myself going back and re-drawing until I get it right. It's amazing to me how subtle the difference can be between an adequate drawing and a great drawing. Fortunately for me I enjoy the process.

My new web site

My web site is progressing very well. I now have several galleries to access. It is interesting to discover how all this electronic technology can be used to advance one's career. I am just beginning to scratch the surface, but at least now I know that I can direct someone to my web site and they can see samples of my work.

I am going to post some little drawings that I think have turned out well.

Welcome to 2010. I continue to develop art for licensing, and illustrate a children's book. I am trying to make sure that each drawing and illustration is as entertaining as it can be. Realism and correctness of proportions and other such academic technicalities must come second to entertainment. Not that they are not important and worthwhile things to strive for, but so often the best entertainment appeal comes only after you have distorted and twisted the "realities" to some degree.

For a friend, I am posting a photo of me and my large statue that I made a couple of years ago.
The statue was made with an underlying armature of welded steel, styrofoam blocks layered over that, and finally modeling clay on the surface. The whole thing was then cast in silicone and a fiberglass cast was made.
