Illustration Friday: Winter

We have had way too much snow lately...wet, heavy, slushy snow. This is how I feel after shoveling for an hour or two. We may have the greatest snow on earth here in Utah, but I like it best when it snows in the mountians and NOT down in the valleys!! I'm all for skiing and having fun in the snow, but it's much better to come vacation in it, and then go back home to somewhere warm...I'm excited for an upcomming vacation to florida!! Winter doesn't have to be COLD.

Here is a new illustration I did last Monday. It's been a long time since I've posted anything here that has taken much effort.

This was also done fairly quickly, but I did put some effort in...and am fairly happy with the results. I might go in a tweak a few little things, but I'm ready to call it "done"

this was a quick doodle from, a couple of seasonal pieces in a row...that's proof that on some level I'm getting into the Christmas spirit.

Illustration Friday: Phenomenon

Some of you may not think snow fall is much of a phenomenon, but where I grew up in southern CA, it never snowed. I can remember one time when it hailed for quite a was wet and slushy and covered the grass outside my house. All the kids were out running around trying to pack it into snowballs and to throw at each other...seems like another lifetime now. I went from wishing it would snow just once, when I was a kid, and now wishing I was back somewhere warm where it didn't snow. "I guess the grass is always greener" huh? Here is a quick pic I did up for this weeks topic. About an hour in painter and a little photoshop. Hope ya like it.

illustration friday: Prehistoric

It's been a long time since I've done anything for illustration friday...I've missed out on a lot of good IF painting opportunities lately and with winter coming on, I'm starting to feel a little isolated. So, when I saw this weeks topic, I remembered a cave woman piece I did several years ago, but never finished. I put in a few more hours on it and I think it looks a lot better now. This cave woman not only was the fairest in the clan, but she can also hunt. Quit a catch back in the day!! I'd love to hear what ya'll think. Have a great week everyone!
