Slave Leia .... gotta love her

It's so late tonight. Or early in the morning, whichever you want to go by. But I am sick as a dog, or my allergies are bothering the crap outta me. I tried to sleep but it's hard to sleep comfortably when your eyes feel like they are going to combust and breathing is a struggle. And since clinics don't open until later on, I'm trying to keep busy, without exerting myself.
So what does that mean? New Blog entry, Hooray.
Here is a Slave Leia done as a commission. I went full on watercolor with this baby with the exception of a few marker areas.
I also tried a toonier approach with her as well. Diggin the way old Dead Jabba came out too!
Anyway, more later, I am going to TRY and fall back asleep. Doesn't help that I have to work ALL day tomorrow.
That's all folks.

Strawberry Shortcake

Wish I could say she was all my idea, but my buddy Dennis suggested I do this piece. I had fun doing it. She's all growed up and she's packing heat. LOL.
I have a Rainbow Bright in the works as well.

Apologies to Charles Schultz

This would be one of those "cope" pieces. Often in life when I am in a mood, I draw something to convey that mood. Whether it be happy, sad, whatever. I guess enough time has passed to show this moment in life. When my now defunct marriage was going through it's stages of slow decline, my ex was making new "friends" on of all places Myspace. One of these friends was a guy way out in Riverside California. She had a huge thing for him, conveniently forgetting that she had a husband as well. They exchanged phone numbers and one day when her phone rang I saw the caller ID. It was him, he who she had so affectionately dubbed her "Snoopy."
If the punch to the face wasn't enough, she had to go and take one of my beloved childhood favorites and bastardize it by giving her forbidden Myspace love it's nickname.
Needless to say from that point forward I started to have a huge distain for Snoopy and the Peanuts in general. Everytime I saw them I saw the guy my ex was making a play for.
After things had seemingly resolved themselves, we were on vacation in Corpus Christi with her folks. Low and behold, we found ourselves eating at a seafood restaurant called, Snoopy's.
This drawing was a result of my feelings during that meal.

Since sometime has passed since that disaster has sailed it's course, I find myself coming back to terms with the Peanuts gang. But I figured it was a funny enough drawing, and now as I look back on it, an even more absurd tale.

The Indiana Jones Bunch

Here is another set of cards I did for a great collector in the UK. He wanted busts of all the major players in the Indiana Jones world. Needless to say, because of my love for the subject matter, I was more than happy to oblige. Check em out. Hope you like them.

Clone Wars Widevision Returns

Miss me? Wow, getting close to 2 months since I posted anything. Truth is I have been battling a bout of depression since after the holiday. Visiting my girls and leaving them is always so hard, and the holidays seem to add to that. It's nothing clinical, just a series of hard times and rough spots. Through it all I think the artwork has kept me somewhat sane. And I am hoping I see a silver lining in my future.
I wrapped up 200 Star Wars Galaxy 5 cards but I am behind in showing these, my Clone Wars Widevision returns. I have one more not shown here as well.
Enjoy, two of them are still available for sale. The Ventress, and the Grevious vs the Troopers. If you are interested in either of them, feel free to comment or contact me.
More soon.
