The day has come, halloween is here, and all this work is worth it. Gio has his afro cardboard frankenstein, Oscar is rocking a full cardboard Pokemon Charizard, Damien is welding a pair of custom cardboard katanas, and Alex is suited up as a cardboard bear.

Don’t Shoot, I did not take the Picnic baskets and I am not a zombie.

Bear Head

A cardboard Bear Head, of the left side built Alex Feliciano

Pushing hard towards halloween, flowing with Cardboard and Hot Glue, here is a picture of the Bear Head. You can check out earlier pics here. I’m happy with the head, I will be starting the suit next. Worried about the paint job, cardboard nude or custom paintjob?

After halloween I will get back to the Clem Heads.

Adding lots of detail, looking for the feeling of fur.


I’ve never built a bear head before. but i have always wanted to build a large animal costume. Alex Feliciano, ” I might make it in time for halloween”.  We will see.


I really like this view. I think about painting it and wonder how to go about it, I have lots of crazy sketches and this dog head from a few years back.

Painting, it begins..again

I have been spending a lot of time this year sketching, in ‘@FiftyThree‘ s Paper53 app on the ipad or at the live drawing events held by #Alpharetta Figure Drawing/Painting Group. I think it’s time to start painting now. Working with brushes is flowing like it should. I start to paint after the kids go to bed then I lookup… and the sun is peeking in. Feels great to lose that much time.

Three 40″x30″ canvases, and I have a 40″x70″ that i need to sand and surface. These pieces are still in progress, the one in the center is close to being done.


Working on some, overdue, new pieces for #‎sisandmoon‬‘s. Lots of work to do but it’s coming out like it hasn’t in awhile.

Green dog is going to get finished. it has been kicking around the studio for a few years. this one is going to be therapeutic.

More new, old cat paintings.

I have been painting cat since Florida. My now wife had a cat and it was hard not to like it. Ester was a wonderful calico that inspired many cat drawings and paintings. This is one of them.

Thanks to the inhabitants of 6061!

Figure drawing event, Sketchbook look.

Lots of figure drawing lately. It is good to draw like this again. I went to a class in Alpharetta, the ‘Alpharetta Figure Drawing/Painting Group’. They have a nice academic format, ten to twenty one minute warm ups, then some five and ten minute drawings. Oh and did I mention the cookies, lots of cookies. Then after a cookie break we do some longer poses.

On this day, my first time at the event I forgot to note the times for each drawing… fear not I will fix that in the future.


This was a short pose, I felt like warming up with hands. First time sketch live models in two plus years.


More hands to warm up, feeling good now.


I am able to get some back and face in this one, I think the lighting was very challenging, that’s a good thing, so it took a minute to find my values.


Now some feet.

IMG_1756Shoulders and chest.


Toes, need to do some toes… Fake means from memory.  While she was changing poses, maybe..


Ahh a slightly longer pose. I like the ‘lay’ of the hand in this one.


Again the light was challenging I remember trying to find shadows.


This was a long pose 10 or 15 minutes, I think…


The model was switching poses and seamed so naturally at rest while she rubbed her hands, I think it might have been cold in the studio.


Last and longest pose.

Late Night Monster

This is an old piece I found hiding in a friends room, it was never finished. I thought about re-working the canvas but decided to digitally work it instead. This is my first attempt. I’m using Paper53 on the iPad with a digital stylus ‘Pencil’, all very strange and fun. #madewithpaper /

Prints are in, girl in fall.

I picked up the prints today, the boys where examining them. I will be shipping them today and tomorrow. There is one left, I will be taking it to Sis and Moons.

I’m really happy the way this all worked out. I’m thinking I will do this again.

‘Paper 53’ has new tools and I think I like them.

If you draw but don’t do it in a computer (photoshop, illustrator, and more) you are going to enjoy Paper 53, it’s on the iPad. They have just released some new brushes and I am liking the roller (fill tool). Now some self promotion… look what i did with it. If you are inclined Please! add your drawing to the comments as I would love to see them!
