Thank you. I am working on a Priest Holmes painting right now. should be completed in a couple of weeks. I was doing it for myself but if anybody is interested when it's completed I'll sell it to the highest bidder.

Being he's on IR and probably won't return to the Chiefs, I'll go $1.

You do very good work pic - it was funny tho - I thought it meant Bono as in the old Chiefs QB.

And I was merely making a joke about the PH one - I am sure it will be very nice.

LOL! No not that Bono, not worth the lead. Thanks man, it's turning out quite well (Priest). I am an established artist out here in Washington state. I don't just do pencil drawings I paint as well. I have some showings right now in galleries in Kirkland, Seattle and also a few galleries in tourist towns on the coast. But I always do these kind of drawings for quick sell, they are much more affordable than the paintings I sell and quicker to do. Kinda breaks it up if I go back and forth.

The price on Bob would be $500 but I would negotiate maybe $400.

Size is 18x24

Medium is pencil.

Is the pic matted or framed or do you sell them as is?

I can mat it and frame it out if you like. Right now it's not though. It did have a show frame on it that's cheap but clean because a lot of these were in a show at the EMP in Seattle a year ago. But I have had this wrapped and stored so it wouldn't be subjected to fading or yellowing in the light.

Yes they are. Here, to show that I can use a brush I have attached another from a barn painting series that I did recently of Kansas barns.
This one isn't for sale but Ihave another one that is if you like barns. You'ld be amazed at how many people do.

Do you do ink?

picasso
01-06-2006, 03:52 PM
Do you do ink?

Yes I do. I haven't for about 8 years but I used to do a lot of fine detail cartooning and illustration. Also did a lot of tattoo design when I was in California when I was in the Navy. Probably a lot of those guys that ever got a tattoo at Tattoos in Oxnard are wearing my stuff to this day.
My inking history kinda shows in my pencil work in that it has deep contrast and detail.

I have designed them yes. But I never have done one on skin. People have wanted me to and I would if I was shown the proper method by a professional. As for a flash book I don't have one but I can customize a design just for you. Attached is a design I did recently that stretched across from shoulder to shoulder.

Well that piece was from a photo that I took in Miami county around Paola and Osawatomie where I grew up when I was about 16 years old. They have a few hills down there besides John Brown hill.

Thanks guys for all your nice words.I appreciate it. And Mo I just might try that again. I recently was contacted by a tat place up in Seattle that does high quality stuff requesting more art like that dragon but they wont pay what I like. Maybe I'll talk to them again, see if I can get something going.
Thanks again.

Kick Ass!! The Rush dragon is cool, but yours is freakin awesome. I am a big SRV fan-and have to say that is one of the best ever. Anyway, it seems like it would be a challange to sketch Pearts drums. I am excited to see what you could do with Rush. You have a lot of talent!!

Thanks Vlad I appreciate that. I sell most of my paintings anywhere from $800 to $2500. A couple have gone for more. I used to work on very large canvas like Stevieray's piece here but now I limit myself to under 36 inches. They seem to sell more and the expense is less. I have quite a bit of work back in KC in buildings and businesses around the area also a few private collections. I used to be shown at the Wildlife galleries downtown on the plaza when I was just out of high school. I am also a photoshop guru and graphic designer. That is my career. I do a ton of work for Microsoft and various ad and design agencies in Seattle. If you ever need anything done man let me know.

Yeah I did it in the past. I don't anymore. I would like anyone that enjoys it to enjoy the real thing. It means more to me and I know it means more to them to know that there isn't a copy out there. I made up and down money at it when i did it. I know a lot of artists that do it at showings these days where people can purchase a smaller version of the large original for a bathrooom hanging. I guess it is really lucrative for them. Me, I'll be the starving artist before I sell out my originals.

That's why I'm a graphic designer. I do a ton of work for Microsoft and other companies on site or more frequently from my home as of late. I have a complete studio where I can create almost anything a client needs. Pays the bills so I can play I mean paint.

Ya, but I'd like to get back into illustration.. I used to do a ton of pencil and pen and ink work years ago.

It's cool when you can find your niche. Congrats on the microsoft gig. I worked for Chili's for a couple of years. Used to fly across the country doing on site murals.

But you're right, when it's good its great, and when its bad, It's really bad.

Most artist's I have met at one time or another have all gone through.."this is it...I'm never getting another job"...yet it always comes through.

Exactly.
Not only that I tend to get bored doing one thing. I used to work at Wizards of the Coast/Hasbro Toys creating fantasy artwork for Magic, Pokemon, and other games. That was the place I always wanted to be. I tried for years to get on board there and I finally got my chance. When they sold the company to Hasbro they downsized and that was it. I still do some work for them as a freelancer when they are looking for something specific but I started doing corporate design because it's easy crap and now I use my imagination on the stuff I put into galleries and not just fantasy artwork either. One thing I don't have is a specific style so I paint in a series to create a style and then the next series change it up as well as the medium. One series I'll do high detail watercolors and the next series I'll do acrylic with alcohol washes and colored pencil details maybe even a charcoal drawing with acrylic transparent overlays on box board. So I am always fresh and finding something new. Whether it sells or not I don't care I'll hang it myself.
I'm also a collector so I do a lot of trade for something I like with other artists that do the same.
