In the bathroom mirror’s reflection
, Dad could see that Alex did not want to brush his teeth. He let out a sigh.

As soon as Molly reached the refrain
of the song, she had to refrain
from playing too loudly or too quickly as it was her favorite part of the song.

This is my tribute
to Tenacious D singing...Tribute.This is not The Greatest Song in the World, no.This is just a tribute.
Couldn't remember The Greatest Song in the World, no, no.
This is a tribute, oh, to The Greatest Song in the World,
All right! It was The Greatest Song in the World...

I was offered a very unique project this weekend. A friend of my wife has a baby who will have to wear a DOC band to reshape his skull and she wondered if I would use my talents to decorate it. Her husband and I worked together briefly at the elementary school where I teach art, and where he was assistant principal. We hit it off immediately since we are both huge Star Wars fans. Naturally, their request for the DOC band was to give it a Star Wars theme. To say the least, I was more than happy to help them out. In the next few days I will post pics of the final helmet. But part of the decoration included a special Jedi character. Since their baby's theme in his nursery is frogs, I came up with an amphibian Jedi at their request. Here are preliminary sketches I did in Paper. More to come later!

Another iPhone Sketchbook sketch. Stay tuned as I turn some of these sketches into finished illustrations.

As I begin working on new projects, sometimes I have to get a feel for how characters will look. This new project involves a family. So I did a quick sketch in Paper of the family as if they were at a department store getting a family portrait done.

I would typically be working on a digital piece for Illustration Friday by right about now. But sometimes, Life takes over. However, I did manage to eek out a little sketch in Paper on my iPad. The IF topic is "wool."

When you're raised a Catholic, you tend to be surrounded by art. And perhaps, Catholicism was another artistic influence for me. It worked for Michelangelo and DaVinci. Anyway, as I was planning a lesson on Leonardo DaVinci, I came across one of his angel paintings where he studied bird wings. And it inspired me to paint this angel. OK, granted, it's more along the lines of "Precious Moments" than "The Annunciation." But then again, I'm no DaVinci.

They come from Tolkein’s mind, but his characters are the stuff of myth
