I'm a full-time freelancer once agian

my illustration has been deleted by me...
It was brought to my attention that it could be taken the wrong way.
It was meant to be funny and get out some of the emotion and frustration that came with loosing a dream job. So if anyone got upset seeing Mickey portrayed in that way, please except my apologies.
Again, meant to be funny not offensive. Thanks for opening my eyes to the posiblilty that not everyone would think it a great illustration.

That's right, Mikey gave me the ol "corporate axe" yesterday, so as of today...I'm going to start freelancing full time. This illustration is a little dark for me...but yesterday's experience wasn't so fun. Anyway, I've got time on my hands....should be more frequent posts!! One art director already promised a job is on it's way, so a little progress.

another bug project??

I'm not sure why I started this...I really don't have the time. But I ran across this poor old bug a while back and it was only $450, so I thought I'd bring it back to life. It is a '62, and bugs that have been around that long in Utah are usually fairly rusty. This one is no exception. I've never welded before, so the first step was to buy a welder. I found a very nice used welder, and have now started it...learning as I go.
here is a shot of the poor little beast

and here is some of the rust...

this finial shot is some of the progress...still a lot of grinding left, but with a little body work this section is solid, and should look ok when I'm done!!

now hopefully you can understand why I haven't posted much art lately...been doin' "garage stuff"
