Tina's Great Year (12-31-14) SOLD

"Tina," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

The inspiration for this one came from an odd place.  Somehow I remember a cartoon I saw about 25 years ago, printed on a notepad.  It depicted a shaggy, skinny, roughed-up looking wolf or coyote, and was captioned "It's Been a Great Year!"  A few of you may even remember seeing it.  Somehow, that seemed relevant, and became a foundation for this piece.

Kelli's Time Out (12-31-14) SOLD

"Kelli," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40

I hope everyone out there is having a great holiday season!  Sorry we didn't get to a Christmas themed piece this year.  I actually have one in progress, from a great idea that a friend sent me last year.  I ran out of time to get it done then, so I thought I'd save it for this year.  So guess what, family needed help just before Christmas, so there it sits in my desk again.  Don't worry, we'll get it done next time!  

Meanwhile, I've got some new books I've been studying, that I wish I'd found years ago.  As always, my goal is to learn as much as I can, and constantly strive to improve my work.  Thanks to everyone for sticking around!

Sasha Tied & Plugged (12-21-14) SOLD

"Sasha," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

Well, there Sasha goes with her "big toy" fetish again.  She just never gets tired of them, does she?

Faune and Elly (12-20-14) SOLD

"Faune & Elly," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $55

"It had been two years since Faune's last encounter with the Spider Queen.  The episode was embarrassing, perhaps, but essentially harmless.  What Faune didn't know, however, was that the Spider Queen had deemed her too small and delicate to carry her eggs, and hence released her.  The strong young Elly, however..."

Maisey and Kelli at Play (12-16-14) SOLD

"Maisey & Kelli," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45

Well, last week involved a buddy's wedding and a big print job on our screen press, both of which went well.  Unfortunately, they didn't leave me much time to work in the studio.  But here we are again!

Kelsie Turns the Screws (12-9-14) SOLD

"Kelsie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40

As with the recent shot of Kelli working her delivery job, I realized that I never did much to show Kelsie's interest in working on computers, so here we are.  She's probably helping Tina out with some hardware problems, I'd guess.

Anya Marker Painting (12-6-14) SOLD

"Anya," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $70

Well, I thought I'd try a different approach with one of our regular "Dames," using the techniques I've been experimenting with on the Ebay pieces this year.  Now, I wish I could get this blog to display the colors correctly, as the deck is white, not gray.  I've noticed that everything I post now has a gray cast to it, and there doesn't seem to be anything I can do to change that.  How obnoxious.

Sophie on the Pony Pole (12-4-14) SOLD

"Sophie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40

So, I know this one's a bit odd.  I can usually tell when Tobie walks in and asks, "What the hell is that thing?"  Well, I've drawn the dames "mounted" on rigidly fixed poles more than once.  Today, I thought that it might be interesting, instead, to have one that was weighted heavily in a round base.  That way, it would change the angle and move around as she squirmed.  Add a bit of equestrian flare, and there you have it.

Mona at the Office (12-1-14) SOLD

"Mona," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $40
