Watercolor Wednesday: Craft Monster

      Comments Off on Watercolor Wednesday: Craft Monster

My first year of doing art and craft shows as part of my job was full of learning experiences. The very first thing I learned and what I always tell people that aren’t sure about having enough work to show was, “There’s nothing like needing to have the work to make you do the work.” The second lesson came about… Read more »

Watercolor Wednesday – Apples and Bananas

      Comments Off on Watercolor Wednesday – Apples and Bananas

Daily drawing and painting (or anything, really) allows us time to think, and experiment, and learn in a way that no class, book, or tutorial can. I read “Make Art Make Money” by Elizabeth Hyde Stevens this summer. Early on in the book she talks about the fairy tale “The Elves and the Cobbler” as an allegory for the life… Read more »

Watercolor Wednesday – Dinosaurs

      Comments Off on Watercolor Wednesday – Dinosaurs

Who’s in the mood for some dinosaurs? I think a lot of us can say that we’ve been interested in dinosaurs since we were kids. Jurassic Park has been a top grossing film franchise more than once. There are multiple shows for kids featuring dinosaurs, including Dinosaur Train which engages kids on a variety of levels and is frankly pretty… Read more »

Watercolor Wednesday: More of the Doctor’s Companions

      Comments Off on Watercolor Wednesday: More of the Doctor’s Companions

I did twelve portraits for the September First Friday at the Saint Louis Science Center this year. Perhaps, now that I’m thinking about it, I should have done one companion for each of the twelve Doctors. Made the second set as much of a look back at the series as the first one was. That may have been truer to… Read more »

Watercolor Wednesday – The Frog Guardsman

      Comments Off on Watercolor Wednesday – The Frog Guardsman

This guy is a guardsmen for the realm of the frogs, who live in the underground of the old city. Frog guards aren’t always the most reliable, but they’re mean and loud so if they’re going to be on a side, you want it to be yours. You may have noticed in the Sketch-a-day post’s that I’ve been doing, there… Read more »

Watercolor Wednesday: The New Doctors

      Comments Off on Watercolor Wednesday: The New Doctors

As I may have mentioned last week, I’ll be at the Saint Louis Science Center this Friday (09/05/14) for their Doctor Who First Friday. I’ll have these original Doctor Who Watercolors as well as prints with me, and my wife is trying to talk me into putting together a Guess Who Doctor Who game as well. We’ll see if I… Read more »

Watercolor Wednesday – Space Toasters and Being Too Old for School

      Comments Off on Watercolor Wednesday – Space Toasters and Being Too Old for School

We’ve all had bosses like this, asking for things that don’t make sense and seem difficult at best. Even when your boss just saved your life and is as likeable as young Luke Skywalker. It’s not like the technicians were going to say no to the guy who just blew up the Death Star and saved them all. He wants… Read more »

Watercolor Wednesday – Hamlet and the Droids They Were Looking For

      Comments Off on Watercolor Wednesday – Hamlet and the Droids They Were Looking For

I added an extra colored background on this week’s paintings, which I like very much from the standpoint of individual images. I’m having second thoughts though about how well they will look all together. This is the biggest problem of doing personal projects that span a large amount of time. Both skill level and ideas about the concept as a… Read more »
