"A Boy Named Sue" Revisited

"My name is Sue. How do you do? NOW YOU GONNA DIE!"

This is the second old piece to get a facelift and is based on the Johnny Cash song of the same name. As a side note, I just learned the other day that the song was written for Cash by Shel Silverstein. Am I the only one amazed by that?

You can check out the old version of the piece HERE

Dabblin' in the Dribbbles

I recently started an account on Dribbble that you can check out HERE. It seems to be a really welcoming community with some freakishly talented people, so I'm really excited to be a part of it.

I'm probably going to use it more for works-in-progress and keep the blog for final pieces and bits of sketchy nonsense. Which means, if you want to stay on top of what I'm falling behind on, that would be the place to do it.

It's also fun if you like to type a whole bunch of "b's" into your address bar.

"Luck of the Cricket" Revisited

I recently decided to touch up some old portfolio pieces (and destroy some others) and the first one to get a fresh coat of paint is the "Luck of the Cricket." I've always liked the layout and color scheme of it but recently, I realized how horrible the actual painting is. You can check out the old version HERE and have a nice laugh.

In short, the piece is based off of the superstition that a cricket on the mantel is good luck.

Hopefully, I'll have some time to touch up some more of these and maybe even do some new, original art. I may also bench press a car. Ya never know.
