Day In, Day Out + my favorite letter P + Doodles

Started a new piece called, 'Day In, Day Out' from one of my previous sketches... I'm about 70% finished. It's acrylic and ink, on 14"x17" Bristol. I'm really happy to get to put more intestines in my work, those are always fun to draw... I also used glazing for the first time in FOREVER since college, but with acrylic this time (which I've never been too successful with, but I really like how it's working).

I've been experimenting the last few weeks on test paintings, to try to (once again) try to get the drawings to be 90% finished before I tweak on the computer. Below are three results of that, one of them hasn't even been touched by the computer! :) (I liked it too much to finish past the point I was at... can you tell which one??) I've just really missed the feel of painted work and wanted to change things up a big, and get down some thick paint, instead of the watercolor-like stuff I've done previously. Makes me feel rather bold actually...!

And last, but not least, I want to scan more of my typographical oriented stuff and put up here more often... so here is a really nice letter P that I drew on the train ride home tonight. (and a fish lady... I thought it was funny at the time, but now I guess Isee its a bit more creepy...)
