Life, brains and pineapples.

This one was for a wine label for a friend that was later scrapped for a new prospect, BEER.
Hollis brews, more news on that venture in the future

I haven't posted any new work in a while. I would like to put more up but as of late I am trying to hone certain skills, so a lot of what I am doing is in my sketchbook. It is mostly studies and random scribblings. I am trying to get some more detail back into my work because I have kind of simplified my work down to color, form, and texture and have been ignoring some of the other essential elements. After going to the Clark I feel like I am lacking some details so I am working on a lot of pen and ink stuff; I'll post some of it when it is ready. 

It's not like riding a bike, I have to keep up on every facet of technique or I will never master anything. Don't worry though, it's not as pessimistic as it sounds, I am in fact looking forward to my next few ventures and planning some hopefully very intense, visually striking black and white work, perhaps with a touch of color. I want to bridge the gap between my line drawing to my paintings, because for some reason the difference is night and day, I so far have not been able to paint like I draw, unless I am using paint markers. So I might just have to run out to Arlene's and buy a stack of paint sharpies and just attack a canvas with them. Anyway I have stuff in the works and will post a taste in a few days of some unfinished paintings and some line drawings I am working on, I really just wanted a disclaimer because they are not finished and will most likely not even resemble what they currently look like when they are complete. Thanks for checking out my work by the way, I appreciate the feedback, keep checking back, I will also post my work in it's natural environment soon.
