Cheap Vacation

The dead of winter has arrived (especially here in northern Montana), where I now live. What better time than now to take a cheap tropical vacation. Unfortunately, I think I forgot the rum.

Whimsical

Most of my realistic drawings and paintings can probably be defined as whimsical. However, when this idea popped up as a topic at Illustration Friday, I came up with this idea of a guy sitting at his desk, watching a rocket ship descend towards earth.

Ink

This week’s topic for Illustration Friday is Ink. To my way of thinking there are two ways of approaching this. One, you can draw a picture of an actual object, such as a pen or bottle that contains the dark liquid substance, we know as ink. The other method would be to execute a drawing on paper using ink as a medium. This is the path I chose, showing how black ink can be used to create an abstract drawing. Hope you enjoy.
