It's a wonder seeing old work and the progression of a style. It is especially interesting when it is yourself you are observing...
This picture was apart of a series of paintings I did with Germbots, Skulls and hotdogs. It was a mixture of Catholic iconography, playfulness, animal folklore... Ideas which I feel in present work are more refined. I was really feeling this method of well ink pen and gouache, which as you know I still use. This is a little ole thing, say 5x7 or 4x6? on watercolor paper. This makes me want to revisit this particular style and period with the new things I have learned.
I am happy to see this.
Have a Happy Holiday!

Unfortunately I was in St. Louis on business, but I heard it was amazing. This looked like it was a blast;
I really want to see this Wakuda in person. This is stunning.
Thanks to Artifakt for the show.

Deck The Halls!, originally uploaded by OneSevenNine.
This is going to a really good cause!
As your lawyer, I would advise you to come and give the gift of money to an area of Seattle that fosters the art community!
Here is a link to more information; Deck the Balls
And here is the link for more balls for auction;
Here are a few peaks at my ball (hahaha)...
They look like Incan Samurais. Kinda new.
Theme is Cry Now, Mischief Later...
See you soon!

The basic set up;
there is a rotating roster of artists who when finished are switched out with another artist.
The finished piece is then walked through the bar to a table in the back where you can take an up close look and purchase.
Everything is under $50; pretty amazing! This is excellent if you are trying to add to your art collection on a limited budget.
I had a blast! There are tons of artsy, fancy and fun people partying!
Here are images of the whole night on Facebook:: ART JAM 5

So I am leaving to St. Louis today.
Don't worry, I will post pics of awesome things I find on my adventures.
I am taking this opportunity amongst business meetings and such to get some quality drawing and sketching time in. Doing these illustrations are really important to me and I like to zone out.
I do these as commissions as well, so if you have a tattoo idea, an animal you love or just looking for something awesome to give someone, please give me a buzz!
I hope all is well!

Thank you so much to my model and to the awesome women who performed!
I had a blast and after I relaxed with my little extra dirty 2-olive'd martini like a good egg.
I enjoyed talking to Julie Luke who also live painted at the event.

This was super impressive to see etched in wood.
I must say as well that the room smelled of burned wood and it was wonderful. You can see the rest of the board on the OneSevenNine Flickr Page.
Here are some fun pics from that night;

With all the snow in Seattle, I am feeling tropical.
This is one bird you don't want to stuff inside another, inside another, inside another! She ain't no Turkey!
Anyhoo, if you are an avid (or an occasional) follower of mine you know I hate peacocks with a passion. I was once knocked down and furiously flapped in the face by one when I was little... Stop laughing it's true!
So of course in celebration of my grudge for the attack, I paint them.
What can you do, they are so beautiful... I wonder if they are in fact delicious?
I hope all of your holidays are amazing, cheers!

I have been sketching and inking for the past weekend, trying to catch up on projects.
I have been sick =( so this is refreshing and good.
Future projects include Monster Show at Upper Playground Halloween Group Show, mural for an Indie movie in the next few weeks and general painting.
The Acute case of Infections Bunnies is for a sketch battle I participate in weekly. Actually, this is my second battle. It's fun.
The Flea is an illustration for the next Punk Rock Flea Market in December. Handsome says it is very Beetlejuice. Cool.
Okay, till next time!

Favorite tools of this trade to have?
-Good, solid mechanical pencil and a clean eraser.
-Microns (08's and Graphic 2's)
-Warm Grey scale marker set (for proper shading)
-Say No-No to colorless blenders... Use a lighter color to blend your colors together.
-A bleeder sheet, I forgot mine and it leaked through to the next page. Oh well...
