Hudson Calasans:

i really like the style!

Doc Al:

Speaking of shade - that honker of a nose could cast a shadow five feet long.


Say Doc
His nose enters a room five minutes before he does.

Fabulous drawing! He's got such character--and such volume.


HEY TMartin

Thanks for the kind word. I have the most fun with this style of work when I keep the proportions rather wacky and the composition is rather straight-forward. I enjoy the lightplay and sculpting the space.


I know I haven't been on too much lately, but I'm alive...Just complicated. Glad to see you're back on your feet John. Maybe some mountain air here at Elk Meadow for some exercise when you get stronger??? To all my wonderful blogging partners on this site....carry on ... I think you're wonderful...


Whenever I hear the word "Shades" I think of Floyd (the Muppet that looked like Jeff Baxter):

"Here... as your bro... are your own, super-cool shades... put these on... & you will be a bona fide, registered, HIP dude..." (something like that)

Is it just me, or is there something kind of Ziggyesque about this particular J. C.?

Happy trails, Cowboy. I miss you being "around," but living takes us in all kinds of different directions. Close friends a thousand miles away, some of the neighbors complete strangers.

When I'm not coding/researching 20 hours a day any more, I won't be around as much--but for now it's so easy to click in when I'm "blocked."


Shouldn't those be iShades?

Lots of depth in the rendering...rendering it COOL.
