Gore and Green seemed to be the BUZZ words at the Oscars last, I thought I would combine the two.

Homage to Sargent

John Singer Sargent believed that work was a form of prayer, in fact on his tombstone it is written "laborare est orare" which simply tanslates from Latin as "to work is to pray". This man worked at his craft, day in and day out from the age of 14. One day I hope someone makes a film of his life because it is an amazing and inspiring story. The painting is "Lady with the Rose (Charlotte Louise Burckhardt)" in the Metropolitan.

This was drawn this past Summer.


Or the effects thereof.....

This is a caricature I did of my teacher and friend Sal Catalano a few years back. Of course the people who know him will appreciate this the most because I feel it is very much like him, but I think as a drawing it worked really well too. I just came across it and thought I should post it.

The Art of Disney: Magic

The USPS decided to release a fourth set of stamps with our beloved Disney characters, this time showing more of their magical side. These were done last summer and the images have been released to the public in anticipation of their formal release in August for purchasing.

I like the Mickey image the best and they are using him as part of their advertising for this years collectible stamps. This is also the first time Mickey has ever appeared on a stamp by himself, so I suppose it is kind of a big deal. When the release date is set (all I know is August right now and I have no idea which Disney park the ceremony will be at) I will post it.
