It's a vacation

Sorry for no posts this week, and there probably won't be any more after this until the new year. It's a vacation! Don't you all abandon the blog forever, now. I'll have lots of fun stuff to post when I get back, including the progress of making some short films, some eating contests, the painting I made for my sister, and any adventures I have in the great North East. Everyone have a great Christmas and New Years!

A Bonus

Here is a bonus painting for y'all. If you are wondering about the different style of this one, it is because this painting was originally my paining buddy's. She hated how it came out and discarded it, so I took it, added some water and a drowning sun. Enjoy!

I just don't stop

The cow painting went over very well at the Christmas party last night and was stolen several times. And now I made the mistake of promising paintings to people. Here is the first. It is a mongoose playing poker with a cobra:

Looking Ugly

So tonight I am hosting an Ugly Christmas Sweater party along with my roommate Jen. We are expecting about 25-30 people all dressed up UGLY. I'll try to post up the pictures in the next week or so once I have had time to download them. Be on the lookout. Go UGLY or go HOME

Winter Wonderland

My professor told me today that it would be a cold day in hell before I passed his final exam....I wonder if he knew it was snowing here in Houston when he said this?

A question to all my readers

If you could take any animal and genetically engineer it to be large enough, and domesticated enough, to ride to and from work, what would it be? I think I may choose a giant wasp. How bad ass would a 600 pound wasp look like, flying through the air with me on its back, with a cowboy hat in one hand and a giant lollipop in the other?

The finished product

The Cownibble

From a sketch to a masterpiece

Last night I sketched out the painting I'm planning on doing today. For comparison's sake, here is the sketch now, and I'll post the painting tonight, if I finish.

It feels like most of my posts on this blog start with me apologizing for not writing anything lately. And this is one of those posts. I need help from you folks, however. I have a Christmas party coming up for work and we are doing a gift exchange. I was planning on making a painting for this, but I'm not sure what to paint. I am currently leaning towards a portrait of a cow eating a hamburger, but I am open to suggestions. Anyone have any?

Late night reading

Roger Ebert does a much more thorough job reviewing Expelled than I did.
