Bad Dog

Happy Birthday Ty!

The attack of the over zealous blue marker.

Illustration Friday "Remember"

A bit hurried but I wanted to post something before the week takes off. I am having a blotchy problem with the blue. I am going to have to take Mr. Blankestine's advice and try and different scanner.

Egg Head and Markers

Some work with markers. I am digging the intensity of the color relative to the watercolor that I normally color with. I also have a bunch of colored inks to use but they are not quite as portable. The inks, however, seem to offer the most range of opacity which I like.
This is also the last post from this sketchbook. This one started on March 30th and ended April 29th.

Cloud Practice

I was using this sketch to practice painting clouds. I am having trouble scanning some things in so that the color comes through. There are times where it seems to really work well and other times, without switching any settings, it looks aweful. This was an awful time.

Happy Birthday Blake!

Our favorite Frenchman.

This did not go as planned. I had planned more time in but talked the afternoon away. I should have done both at once.

From the Church Sketchbook

A small part of the service today at LCBC (Lancaster County Bible Church) was spent remembering and praying for those who suffer at Virginia Tech.

Mr. Potato Face

I have to confess, I look up "potato" every time I need to write it just to make sure that I am spelling it correctly. Thanks a lot Dan Quayle for scarring me for the rest of my life.

Jen and Steve's New Daughter

Congratulations Jen and Steve!

I don't really like how the picture turned out but the video was something fun to work with. I will try another video post soon of something that is a bit more fun. I will also get a tighter shot and a little more light.

We actually had communion in chapel today and about half of us were given prepackaged juice and wafers. They were bundled together. Why not put them in a vending machine?
