Took this piece from my sketchbook. I used micron pens over the pencil drawing. Originally I was going to paint over the lines, but then I decided I liked the linework enough to keep it. I also changed the color scheme since the last time i posted this as a WIP. i think I like this better. What say you?

OK, ok, so I know a real "blogger" doesn't let things stand in his/her way of blogging once every few days, but walk a mile in my shoes.... and you can keep the shoes..... I don't know what that means. Basically, for the past month or so, Kathleen and I have been moving into our new house in downtown Baltimore and unpacking and settling in. My studio still has a long way to go (pictures need to go on the wall, and more shelving must be built for additional books, etc.) But i figured I would show you what my new setup looks like anyways, plus a pic of the front of the house too. Below that is the skull-totem island piece again, this time I am thinking of going with a new color scheme, and keeping the colorization fairly simple.... I almost started going in there and painting in details and such, but i think i need to let the drawing really sing in this case and just use color to back up the mood. Anyways.... more stuff soon.
