Gotta serve somebuddy! Sometimes it’s cool to see the process. This is what my drawings look like on the first pass. I’m drawing lightly these days establishing my lines, thinking about shapes and trying to design the image. After this phase I start adding value in gradually building up my darks but all my problems are solved lightly. I wish real life worked this way..all my problems resolved with the gentle touch...said in a Bob Ross voice. Gotta run.. hope you have a great day. So stinkin’ cool to be alive.. channelin’ Bob Ross and Bob Dylan.

Mr. Pop! What a face. Abraham Lincoln said, “Everyone over the age of 40 is responsible for their own face.” Take heed Mr. Iggy. Happy Monday. Have a great day, so stinkin’ cool to be alive and quoting Abraham Lincoln.

Ivan the Roosky Kat! More from the, “Kats can be cool, not really.” series. This image was from 10 years ago when I was going after children’s books. I did do three books under the alias T.Lively. More Kats to come. Hope you are having a great weekend! Oils. #cat #cats #kitty #childrensbooks #russia #russian #oils #oilpainting #art #artist #draw #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram

Kiddy. A commission for a client. Also a big shout out to my cat lover friends. I know you exist somewhere. Quick Q... Have you ever been petting your cat... and he’s purring intensely and then all of a sudden he snaps and bites your hand? OOUCH! Oh the strange strange world of cats thus supporting the Fall in Genesis 3. Have a great day so stinkin’ cool to be alive and drawing. #Cat #Cats #catsarefrickenweird #Commission #Pastel #SepiaDrawing #Drawing #Draw #Sketch #Sketching #Doodle #Art #Artist #artists

Newt. This is a crop of an editorial painting I did about 10 years ago done in the Dutch Flemish approach. You start with the drawing then the underpainting then onto the color phase then finally into the adjustment phase. It’s actually a really cool masterful approach. I now paint using the direct approach but this approach is still cool. Pardon the shameless plug but I do teach a class on the Dutch Flemish approach at schoolism.com if you are interested.

Dread pirate Robert, Plant that is... swimmin’ poolz... moovie starz! Sorta mesmerized with Robert Plant and Zepplin these days as I listen back to their masterpieces. Regardless of their struggles and weaknesses as human beings it’s so hard to ignore their genius abilities...AND that drummer! Oh my word! Also throw in the fact that Robert Plant continues to create amazing music even in his 70’s who does that? (Only a few) Gotta run. Needless to say, it’s so stinkin’ cool to be alive and drawing in the house of the Holy.. One. Have a great day!

Sooper Boy. A few years back I got a phone call and the voice on the other end said... “Hold please for the president.” I thought it was a joke then Billy got on the line and congratulated me on being so brutal on Hillary. He then asked me if I could do the unthinkable.. turn him into a superhero. I said “Sure, that shouldn’t be a problem.. you have tons of superhero powers and stuff. Then I asked ”Since superheroes always have one weakness what’s yours?” The phone went dead. He never returned my calls and I never forgot that day. I finished the “commission” anyways. Happy Presidents Day. So stinkin’ cool to be alive and drawing. #TheRealReveal #Clinton #PresidentialPortrait #SuperBoy #SuperHero #Hillary #BillClinton #Clinton‘s #Commission #OilPaintings #DigitalArt #Caricature #Drawing #Draw #Art #Artist #ArtistsOfInstagram #ArtistsOnInstagram #Instaart #superhero
