Hey folks. A few new pieces.

The top two monotypes were pulled at the very talented Andrew Wright's studio over New Year's. I love doing these. I tell myself I don't have access to the equipment, but Trey runs over his plates with his car. This I need to do.

The 3rd image is just me doodling girls, you know the usual. The last two images are warm ups I've been doing every morning. I draw one page of something and post it on my twitter. So far I'm on track...I began 9 days ago.

Also, please take a moment to consider donating a few dollars to the relief effort for Haiti. They are going through an incredibly tough time and need all the help possible. I know money is tight, but even a little will go a long way.

Text YELE to 501501 to donate $5

take care,

BEAUTIFUL WORK AS ALWAYS,its ironic that this is the first time I am posting here, cuz I visitn your blog almost everyother day, and religiously follow your link updates. But your own work is so inspiring too, we are about the same age(I am 22) and your work ethic is something to look upto. So yeah, thats that. I will try to make my next comments more specific about your posts.

TAke care,

Great warm up pages, so interesting to look at.

Marcelo Vignali said...

Love the studies.

I also liked what you said about Haiti. Wow, those people are really in a horrible situation. No jobs, no homes, no stores, no money, it's going to take a long time for the Haitians to get out of that horrible mess.
