"Asphalt Flyer"
Ink and gouache on watercolor paper
11"x 15"
This is a piece about my love for motorcycles. There's nothing like riding a motor sickle I tell ya. It's an unexplainable feeling. It's very similar to the feeling I get when I'm skateboarding. Well I guess it's an urge inside of me that longs to be free and feel the cool crisp air on my road grime caked face. Flying across the asphalt with no barrier between me and the natural world. Listening to the loud roar that escapes this iron horse I straddle with the twist of my wrist. All worries and stresses erased from my mind. Just a clear mind, an open road, and one hell of a good time. Cheers

Here's a class assignment I just finished. This was a color relationship project.
I executed this scholarly piece in gouache on illustration board.

Here we have a couple of busts of Beethoven and Bach I painted for a coworker of mine. I guess his father had these for years and he passed them down to Jeff, my fellow coworker. He wanted to jazz them up a bit and add some character to them. They were both a poopy creamy yellow color and I went a little CREEPY on them. They're made of plaster and soaked up the paint very nicely. I sprayed a clear coat over them after I was all done to seal them up. Both are painted with gouache.
