Some old artwork.
Joe and Sue. A character study for an upcoming illustration I plan on doing. These two were named and modeled after my parents.
Back in August 2013 I started a daily doodle journal. At the time I had just started my graduate studies, which was quite intensive. I decided to do a daily doodle about my day each day to give myself a short break to draw.
I did this piece for my dad. He at the time had gotten a new office with lots of wall space and wanted some of my art to fill it. I asked what he wanted, and he said “something local.” So I drew this scene of the Biloxi Back Bay. I got the piece framed and gifted it to him. However it never saw a wall. It ended up tucked behind a file cabinet for years.
Not as bad as a watercolor landscape I did for my mom. She bugged me for months for the painting. I gave it to her as Christmas present. She ignored it for six months when my brother stole it. He now has it in the honored the spot above his toilet.
I’ve been following Illustration Friday for years now. It’s a site that provides weekly drawing prompts. This is the only time I’ve done it. This was for the theme of “ocean.”
