I'm back....and engaged. Holy shit.

Yeah it's true.....I popped the question and she said yup. Well it was more like a "Yes you idiot of course!" I think anyone who reads this blog has access to face book so check out my fiancé's page to see the proposal. And wow that sounds so fucking weird to say....fiancé. Anyways, i will post this gif I made to embarrass her. ^_^

Blogger doesn't support animated gif so click here!!!

Now onto the post. A friend of mine contacted me about a tattoo he wanted. I've know this guy my entire life so I'm stoked he asked me to help design it. This is the first concept.

His request was very broad so it left lots of room for me to sketch which was great. I knew it had to be a tree that was alive but starting to die with some falling leaves and that it would go on the side of his torso (ouch!). I hope he digs it and I'll continue to post as it gets updated. I wasn't' sure if he wanted color/shading or not so I sketched with a pen to keep strong line work that color and chiaroscuro could build off.(chiaroscuro...yay intro to drawing class!)

A day in the life of efmuok

My sketch for this weeks sketch aerobics homework :)

it was done quickly but I think it might be fun to clean it up a bit with some color...and if you repeat this 5 times you get a week in my life.

P.S. I just noticed that I am missing my beard in one of the panels...haha oh well.

I'm a cat!

Lucian is always up to no good when it comes to changing our bedsheets. Typically we resort to locking him out of the bedroom where he sits and whines because he wants to play under them.

He starts by bolting into the bedroom when he hears us shaking the sheets and dives under...
"Ooomm. They're warm and smell good!"

As we cover the bed he keeps running under the newly tucked sections eventually resulting in this
Lucian come out. "No!"
Please? "No it's too cozy!"

Now once fully under the sheets if you try to pull him out he starts running away on his belly, meowing, and growling at you all "No! Leave me alone!!! I'm hiding in here go away! O_O!"

He was pretty rambunctious that night and I later found him staring at his own shadow when I went to feed him before bed.
"Meow. Peter Pan was an idot!"

Sketch Revisited

This is a sketch I did awhile back. Decided to turn it into a speed painting exercise. Enjoy.

Is your creativity supported or stifled?

I'm going to revive my blog as a mean of continuing my effort of completing an illustration or sketch per night. This is my first post in almost a year!
