Worked on this about two nights total. Just a quick caricature of Reese Witherspoon. I think she is very beautiful and a talented actress but I had to play on those certain features of hers. This was friggin hilarious to work on. Still trying to figure out how to post my work as the orginal, CMYK. But I can only post these in RGB color and they dont come out that colorful as they look originally.

Had to do it. I love this girl but she has such features you can play on. I just started cracking up once I started this. Cant wait to finish it. Should have it done by Saturday. Wish I didnt have a regular job so I could just play with my art every day. Well just started this one. Oh.... about two hours into this one. Shouldn't be no longer than another couple hours to have it finshed. I'm going to do a series of caricatures of actors that I see certain traits in. Im thinking the next one is going to be Mickey Rourke. One of my favorite actors but the dude has had his face stretch back a bit too much. Thats going to be a lovely time working on him. Might add a few props in there with him as well. Basically right now Im working on faces. I'll the rest of their bodies in there later as well as a background every so often.

Started this piece last night before I was going to bed but ended up staying awake til 7am. Thats is my peal hours or working on my art, from 11pm til 5am. Seven in the morning is stretching it. I was going to work on these oil paintings that I started last week but ended up getting hooked on the computer again. Just working on my caricature stuff so maybe I can get some work with certain magazines. We'll see once I start sending stuff off soon. I'm thinking about doing a variety of Obama. Also I want to work on many other individual celebrities and politicians as caricatures. Maybe try to knock one out every other day.

Been working on this one for my aunt for some time now. My aunt goes to the Caribbean about twice a year. Everytime they're there they can't find any artwork they want to bring back with them so her and her husband ended commissioning me to do a painting for them. I put together a few photographs they gave me and made a composition from them. I was pleased with it but I could use a lot more practice, therefore I am going back to oils for a while or maybe I need to mix things up every once in a while. Been doing a lot of computer work as well. The photo is kinda blurry due to the fact that I still don't know how to photograph my paintings yet. Someone told me to take a photo of it in indirect sunight but its winter and there's not much sun around right now, plus its freezing out there to mess around photographing stuff. Maybe I just need a better camera.
