This drawing was for a weekly artist email challenge. The theme for the week was to pick a movie star or stars and put them into a character or movie that they were not in. I chose to place the five main members of the three stooges and place them into the movie Reservoir Dogs. I am very sad if someone does not know who the three stooges are or the movie reservoir dogs. If you are not aware of either please go to blockbuster or your library and check out some movies.

These are a couple of photos of a geisha painting that I did for my wife. It has been something that I had promised to do quite awhile ago for her. I haven't told her that I painting it and thought it would be funny to post pictures and leave clues around the house to see if she discovers it. These photos are stored on her laptop, they are also still stored in our camera, and the painting itself is in a frame underneath our bed. I also have a sketch of the painting laying on one of the art tables in our basement. The painting is 24 x 36 and is acrylic and ink on a thick paper that was given to me by a friend.

This is a drawing for a weekly artist email challenge. The topic was to do a drawing of a favorite artist or musician. I chose Screamin Jay Hawkins. He was a blues musician from the 50's to the 90's who was known for his humorous songs and wild stage show. I had wanted to do a picture of him a long time ago for a class project, but just ended up not choosing him as the subject. So I guess it was a long time overdue. If you have not heard of him before google for more information or go to youtube and check out some videos that are currently up.
