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.
Be sure to check out the events they have planned for 2011!

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!

Sing this to the Batman Theme Song!
This will be my second time doing this. I had a blast the first.
I will be coming back from the future Saturday morning from my trip to St. Louis (so if you are out there... BEWARE!) and I will be ready to paint!
All paintings will be on sale for 50.00 and under. All works must be complete there. With a rotating roster of artists, you will surely see some amazing things.
Georgetown kicks it hard!
Here are some images and again the link to more info;
I hope to see you there!

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.
