From the Drawing Board...

Here's one of the first sketches I've sold so far. This one is from an excerpt from a novel by Rick Higginson, a fellow NaNoWriMo participant. Rick's had me do a couple so far, and earns many thanks for his contributions.

Of course, being who I am, I ended up taking this one a little further than expected. I couldn't help but think in terms of color when I drew this, and ended up doing some digital color work on the piece in what I laughingly call spare time. Below is the color version I did...a little rough, but it got the gist of what I was trying to do with it.

Remember, it only takes a $10 donation to buy a 5x7 sketch. Now where else are you going to get a piece of original art for 10 bucks? Of course, you're welcome to donate more. In fact, I heartily recommend it. There must be an eccentric billionaire out there who's willing to pay me horse-choking gobs of cash for a tapestry sized drawing of Halle Berry doing a Josephine Baker impression on the back of an albino elephant at the Grand Ole Opry while the Flying Wallendas execute a tricky triple somersault in the air above her, isn't there?
(OK, maybe that one's for me alone...)
