Got a new quill point today. Still as hard to ink with that thing as I remember it being.

Went back and added some color to a few past blogs.

Barnes and Noble...

I drew the public in the public for the first time today. It was a little scary, but thankfully I only had one person comment on my drawing. Will I ever get over the fear of drawing in front of strangers?

It's just one of those days.

Visions of sleep...

I ran a marathon today. I took a shower afterwards and put my face under the hot water. When I closed my eyes, this is what I saw. My wife, the bee, was carrying clouds to me. I wanted to sleep on one of those clouds. I took it as a sign to go take a nap.

Winged disk part III...

It took a lot of time and some tedious work, but it's done and I don't think it looks too bad. We'll see how it wears tomorrow during the race.

Winged disk...

The near finished product. Next I'll put in on the shirt. I've never done it before, but Amanda helped me load my original sketch onto "Illustrator" and edit it. I like the look.

Out kitten...

Our kitten sits still long enough for me to draw her. Still no name yet.

Winged disk...

Early, unfinished idea for a design on the back of my running shirt. It is an homage to my wife who watches over me during my races. It is losely based off the Egyptian symbol of the winged disk and the letter of her name will fit inside the circle of the bird. I'll post the final version later once I decide on the look I like.

Scary basement...

I'm painting the hallway in my house, so I have the door off that leads down to the basement. Basements have always been scary for me and I keep freaking myself out every time I walk past the open door. Something's down there.

Completely blank...

Back to the grind. Ho-hum.

A day of painting...

I stood in the hallway most of the day. And painted.

An apple. Stole the sticker idea from another journal I saw.

Rio de Janeiro, South America in color...

I learn something new each time with watercolor. After working with black and white for years, color really is hard.
