Girl in the window

This is a tribute to one of my favorite American artists, Edward Hopper. Not to be confused with Dennis Hopper, the actor (Damn good actor, by the way. Oh, and if you didn’t know, he used to party with James Dean and Elizabeth Taylor. Buy his bio – Here. Its a great read). But alas, I digress. Back to Edward. His paintings were very lonely. They rarely had more than one person in them and when they do, the subjects are never interacting. Yet, they are just as beautiful and graceful as the environment itself. Man, I could get lost in his paintings. I once saw Early Sunday Morning at the Whitney in NYC. Very impressive.

This is one of my girlfriends favorite sketches.

Anatomy of the Ears, Nose, and Throat

This is my second true attempt at medical illustration. My first attempt was done in Flash. I drew it out in pencil first, then added color using marker. I have a set that has been with me in one way, shape or form for about 33 years. I started collecting markers since the 6th grade. Then, I went back over it in pencil, using the shading technique and a smudge tool – the real kind of tool and not the photoshop version.
