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.
