Stephen Sharpe gives a shower-fresh feel to illustration. His images are not chaotic but busy, full, and darn funny. An infinite loop of happenings carry you through his worlds of dumb people, smart people, aliens, and coffee bathers. I’m sure he has all the Where’s Waldo books at home, inspiring his life scenes bazaar. His perspectives are accurate and wide open. His colors are lovely and harmonious. His quality if of the best digital illustrators.
Cheers to you Stephen, I think you rock.

This one goes out to all the Dads!

Today I celebrate by listening to The Band and reminiscing on all the things my own father has taught me and shared with me. The art of distance running! Good beers. The rowdy heart of a true sports fan. Selflessness. Being In the moment. Courage! Humor and laughter. How to appreciate Seinfeld. A strong campfire. And secret potato salad recipes. 

<3 Thanks Dad.

Some fine work by one of my watercolor students!For this exercise, artists chose their favorite photo from my &#8216;reference pile&#8217; and sketched it twice. For the first portion of class they worked with only warm temperature primaries: ultramarine blue, cadmium red, and cadmium yellow. The second half of class time was used to paint the same image with only cool temperature primaries: prussian blue, crimson, and lemon yellow. Excellent results! And, hopefully, an obvious illustration of the difference in color palettes :) (very nice impression of the wood texture, I might add)
