Thank You Mr. Jones

I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that downtown San Diego has a great art gallery of original sketches, paintings and other works of the legendary Looney Tunes animator and creator of Bugs Bunny, Chuck Jones. Drove down this past weekend for a short inspiring visit to this gallery and loved it. Its always great to see these works up close, you get to see each pencil stroke and every shade of color. The man lead an incredible career and kept the most creative company. Dr. Seuss is a known close friend of Chuck Jones, and some original Dr. Seuss art can be seen here as well. I highly recommend a visit.Chuck Jones Galleries

My City

The San Diego Skyline: What if I told you that my city was the best?

This is probably as close to architectural art as I'll ever get. I've never been a fan of the preciseness of architecture, but this was actually kind of fun. Did this piece for the upcoming new Tailwind website.

What's In A Face

When we look at and recognize faces, we will often take for granted just how specific and unique each face is. The slightest change can completely alter what we naturally register as the face of someone we know. Most of the time, we won't be able to identify what that change is, but we just know, "something isn't right."

When drawing these portraits of my friends for their website, I was surprised how little it takes to make a face "not right." Of course, unless you know these guys, you probably wouldn't be able to tell me whether I did a good job or not, but whether or not I was accurate in capturing their faces, I walked away from this drawing appreciating the uniqueness of each person's face.

Be happy and proud of your face, it is special and uniquely YOU!

These guys are my friends, but I think I've stared at their faces longer than I ever want to again...
