Drawing is sexy!

A few months ago I dared to venture down to Orange County for a Dr. Sketchy's figure drawing night. The 10 buck entry included 3 hours of poses from gothy-tattooed figure models and booze. Check it out sometime!

'Miles Thompson' donation for the PRES-AID Auction!!!


Here's my donation to the Pres-Aid art auction, supporting my friend Pres Romanillos.

It's an original painting by Miles Thompson. I purchased it in 2007 at his solo show at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery inside Wackos on Sunset. If you've ever sipped a tropical cocktail at the 'Tiki Ti' bar down the street, you may have seen his artwork decorating the walls there. He has also worked in CARTOONS before.

I've enjoyed having this piece, and now I hope that someone else will.

'Entertain Us'
ink and acrylic on cardboard

It's based on a photo from an old Time Life book I have from the 60's.
Oh the sixties, if only I got to live then.

Trailer Shot

video
I have one little shot in the newest "How To Train Your Dragon" trailer. It's playing theatrically in front of "Alice in Wonderland" this weekend for the first time.
The original length is about twice as long as this trailer cut. I usually shoot a lot of video reference for my shots, but this is one of those where that's trickier. Although I did study some footage of skydivers!
