Ugly Uggs

W. and J. both think these boots are ugly. They're right - but they are also very comfortable. So there.

This isn't a finished drawing - I'm going to play around with it a bit more and see what I come up with. But I can't spend too much time on it.

I need the boots back.

Buddha bank

Yep. it's a buddha - AND it's a piggy bank!

Although, quite frankly, it's looking a little demonic.

Perhaps an unconcious commentary on the world-wide fiscal situation.

I can't believe I haven't drawn this guy before - after all, that's what he exists for. A little wooden art mannequin, bought at Pearl Paint in NYC in 1993. I tried to keep it simple, but it still took close to 2 hours.

Maybe I should just resign myself to slow sketching.

Christmas Snowball

With mittens.

I actually made this ornament - which makes me wonder - should I start a whole new category of "Things I own that I made"? Or, since I've made them, should I bother drawing them at all, since I've already created them? It all seems very existential, which to me indicates that I should go drink some eggnog. With rum.

A new technique with the cintiq, as well - more pastel-y (you art majors out there tell me what the official term is - I don't know). I like it at the moment - I'll have to try it again. It came together rather quickly, too - it only took me about half an hour, which is at least twice as fast as the other ornaments.

Or maybe I was just thinking about the eggnog.

Christmas Lamb

or mutton. Hard to tell, really. Little tiny painted wood ornament, with an, ahem, sheepish expression.

I'll stop now.
