I went to art school with these two guys:

There are, of course, many illustrator/designers out there. Sometimes marketing yourself as being versatile can be very beneficial. If you can pull it all off, that is. You obviously need to be at least decent in both disciplines, but most artists are stronger at one than they are at the other. I know of almost nobody in the world that is both an A+ designer AND an A+ illustrator. And after these two fellows, I can't think of anyone. Unbelievable talents that really do make it look easy.

No, I take that back. They make it look hard. For me, at least, because when I look at their work, I say to myself, "#@&!! How do they DO that!?"

Okay, it's finally done. Whew! I am currently having my new site rebuilt, and this will be on it. This was done initially in black and white, then the color was glazed over afterwards. It's not a quick process, but it gives you alot of control over the color. Plus, I just wanted to try it.The family hasn't seen this painting yet, so I have no idea what the reception will be. It wasn't a commissioned painting or anything. I just used one of the sons for a model. But they will be curious to see it, I imagine. Heck, I'm not sire what I even think about it yet. I never am this soon after finishing.

More coming soon. I promise, this time.
