This was an idea for a painting that I felt compelled to paint. I call it "CASUALTY."

It's always wonderful to paint things that are personal to how I feel or the things that concern me. I just wish this idea wasn't inspired by an event that was so horrific such as the BP oil spill.

Very sad.

Wall-Street Cyclops

I've really enjoyed listening to the Sketchoholic interviews these past week from Pixarians Derek Thompson, Aaron Hartline, Everett Downing and Nate Wragg. They're all VERY inspiring and really provide an honest glimpse of what it takes to be a successful working artist.

Here's a sketch that I did while watching Nate's interview, my take on his "Wall-Street Cyclops"!
