Earthquake Octopus

Been a crazy couple days up here in Anchorage, Alaska.  For those that haven't heard we had a really big earthquake a couple days ago.  Enough so that I got a long weekend, maybe even longer depending on how bad the damage at my office is. But that's also given me time to dig out the old art supplies and work on a couple pieces.  First up is the aptly named Earthquake Octopus.

Christmas Time at the CynicalBuddhist Temple

Been working on some stuff. Blackest Night is a donation to my offices silent auction.  And the seascape is a 4 piece work that will be given out our holiday get together with my friends.  With my in-laws visiting we needed, or rather I decided to add a piece of original art for all of us for our white elephant gift exchange. 

Here are how the 4 pieces will be cut up.

Christmas Minis

My wife asked me to draw a some small stuff to add to the gift she was sending to our niece and nephews on her side of the family.

I ended up making a few more than needed just because I was on a roll.  A couple turned out pretty nice.  The drawing size is 4.5 inches x 3 inches

It's that time of year again...Christmas Octopus

It's becoming a tradition that I draw something to be given away during Christmas.  Whether I'm celebrating with family or friends we usually do a White Elephant gift exchange and the art is always a big hit.  I was having trouble coming up with an idea when my wife suggested I just do another octopus.  My studio space has been relagated to a corner of the kitchen table, but I was able to bag this one out in just about a day.  From conception, to pencils, to ink.  Not to shabby and I'm really pleased how it turned out.
