Some old and new.

Now that all the Dr. Sketchy’s stuff is starting to roll forward, and the website is essentially up, I can finally get back to the stuff over here.  🙂

The first two sketches are at least a decade old – both were done while I was in college.

sketch of graveyard fields

The above is a sketch of a bunch of boulders at Graveyard Fields, a camping ground up on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Asheville, NC.   The forest there burned down at one point and moss grew over the stumps, making the thing look like a graveyard at some point in the past (though I don’t think it looks like that anymore.

Next is a bunch of sketches during a Godawful section meeting at work….the first is a diagram of a robot I’m currently building in Anim8or.

The next two are folks droning on about last quarter’s prediction median’s for next quarters analysis for the previous quarter’s predictions.

And last, but not least, Mr. Big Nose.

Oil painting of an old man.

I’m cleaning the house today and unfortunately don’t have anything new to put up.  The below is an oil painting I did in my second (third?) year of oil painting underneath Professor Zaborowski at UNC, about a decade ago.  It’s a pencil sketch on canvas paper with a layer of oils carefully applied over top.  It was probably the best one of it’s type I did that year.

I *think* it was based off a sketch done in a coffee shop named Cafe Trios in Chapel Hill, one that has long since turned into an Italian eatery, then a gin bar, and maybe a sports bar now?  I have no idea.
