This is the finished "Winter: Spirit" piece that I showed the drawing for a couple months ago. I'm quite happy with it, so happy with it that I am going to do a series based on the winter theme. My next piece will be the same size (40" x 13") then followed by a piece that will go along the top and bottom. Anyway hope you all like it.
Winter: Spirit, 40" x 13", Oil on Paper on Masonite, 2010.
This is a watercolor still life I did for my girlfriend's mother, Eva, for Channuka. It was the first time in a very long time that I was able to actually set up a still life and work from life. Of course most of my work is fantasy based or involves things that would not be possible to paint without taking photos and working from them, so I guess I shouldn't feel bad that I don't do this more often, but it was a really nice change of pace. Also it was a lot of fun doing more detailed work with watercolor. Most of my past couple watercolors have been mostly washes and have a more improvised style to them, with just a hint of the level of detail I was trained with. Very nice to get out that #2 Kolinsky Sable and and get into the more rendering aspect of the medium.
This is the first book I was lucky enough to do the cover illustration for. The book has a very pulp-ish quality to it, it includes: time travel, alternate timelines, extraterrestrials, cover-ups, and plots to end the Nazi regime. I hope you all love it, I know I did. Time Will Tell will be officially out January 10th 2010, but you can pre-order it now via the link at the top of this post.
