Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.
- Oscar Wilde

I am not sure I agree with Oscar completely on this one but it was fairly appropriate for this post. I used to struggle with the fact that I feel I have no definitive "style" but now I am OK with not feeling tied down to one particular way to work. I suppose I will spend the rest of my creative life figuring out which way to draw what is in my head.

Ricardo Lopez Ortiz

Ricardo is one of the best people I know. I had the privilege of traveling to Florence, Italy with this kind, thoughtful, and extremely talented young man. We spent a month working together on art and simply having a great time. A tremendous young talent with work that is totally worth visiting. The brightest of futures is in store for him and he is the epitome of what a diligent student should be.

Portrait of a Lady


OK, So last week I had posted this portrait I was doing of Jared in progress but I was having trouble loading some of the images and some people told me they couldn't see some of them so I took down the post. Here it is again (sans the progress) with the final image as well as the original drawing. I have to admit the scan of it is not the best and for some reason it looks very different than this. You will just have to take my word for it. Thanks to everybody who commented on the original post.
