The Ocean's Guest List

I thought I'd redo the blog banner for a nice change to go with the new year. And, I just put a small handful of drawings up for grabs in the shop!

"Guest 1" {sold}

"Intruder 1" {sold}

"Guest 2"

"Intruder 2" {sold}

There's a little armada of half-finished paintings piling up on my desk and while I've been working out the details, this series of drawings emerged. They're each 5x7" and are done in graphite on paper with hand-painted details. I've noticed that when I'm at a loss for something to draw, I tend to do lots of coral and starfish scribbles. They're just really fun to do.

I also have a lot of new prints to unleash onto the world. There were quite a few paintings completed/sold last year that I wanted to make prints of but never had the time. Better late than never, I suppose! I think as I filter in some new prints into the shop, I'll start to phase out some of the older ones. Freshen things up a little.

Anyway, I hope all's well!

The Big 10

Well, hello 2010! You handsome devil, you.

I'm so excited for a fresh beginning and things to come. No big new year's resolutions on my end, though I am aiming to be even more productive this year (I suppose that is a resolution, huh?). Seems like I always make that goal in January. Do you have a big goal set in mind for 2010?

I'm actually already plugging away at some new works, so so far so good! I also have a handful of smallish sketches to put up for sale online. They turned out lovely and are sort of drawing/painting hybrids on paper. Perhaps in the next day or two the sun will come out for a photoshoot.
In other news, there's a pretty nifty desktop calendar sampling my work from the Endangered show that you can download for free, courtesy of Bluebottle Gallery! Check that out over yonder.

Must get back to work. Happy New Year, gang!
