Alright, Fine:

This is Catch. He helps me laugh at things that I normally cant laugh at.

My Mouth Tastes Like Milk and French Fries:

This is my new workspace. Mostly its cold and I'm usually hungry. Its in a basement, but it has a sink which I like. The dogs also live here and so does some signed picture of a Sox player that was here before me. My chair is missing three of its five wheels.

So I usually dont post progress shots but I've been feeling really slow and gross about not doing any work recently so I'm putting these up for some reason having to do with that... My final review guys said I ought to do some work about Maine, landscapes similar to the Cliffs of Moher piece I did in Ireland. I thought that was a great idea. F Lynch said to do three big Maine paintings to show him in the fall. So here I go.

This one wont have anything to do with Maine.

Hey. You suck.

Oh Hi:

So I disappeared for a little while.
Here's a picture.

In Ireland, one of the last things that took place for me was being commissioned to do a logo for the North Clare Beer Appreciation Society. WHAT?!


All I did all semester was appreciate beer and make art about it, so this was the perfect cap-off to one of the best experiences of my life.

Now I've just got to do it.

I'm a little frustrated. This is just the inks. I did them by hand (and they look a bit wobbly to me.) I'm up to coloring them with Adobe Elements and I'm making progress. I'm just not entirely sure how to approach this...

I'll post some color sketches very soon and ask for feedback. For now though, theres the ink.
