Illustration of the Week: Swim Fan

Fun sketch - riff on Manet's Olympia

So, if I'm going to be painting pictures of peoples' pets as a source of revenue, I might as well spice things up. How about putting your pet in a old-school painting, such as Manet's Olympia? (link NSFW.) And maybe the pet owner too?

This prelim sketch was done on spec, (and without reference photos of the actual subjects) so we'll see how it goes. I'm tempted to start the real painting anyway, and just fill it in when I get a bite!

Pet Painting Commission - delivered!

Hudson the fluffy white dog has finally found his home, resting on the mantle.

Please keep me in mind if you are thinking about getting a pet portrait done!

Experiments in art!

Here are some experiments using acrylic ink. They aren't done, but I thought that I'd post them as is, since it's been a while since my last post.
