William Tell Mitchell, Jr

I dug out this small ink drawing from college days, upon the death of old friend William Mitchell. In this drawing, David Lowery is seated on the floor drawing, Eva Roberts (teacher extraordinaire) is the small curly haired woman standing with her back to us, and just above right of her head is small round head, which is William Mitchell. Trying to get back to this blog, but Google issues persist.


Trying to get back to this blog. Google issues! Here is a small ink drawing from 1982, I dug this out upon the death of my old friend from college, William Mitchell. In this drawing I did David Lowery is seated on the floor drawing, Eva Roberts is the tiny frizzy haired woman seen from behind, and just above her head is little round head that is William Mitchell.I'll try to post some more stuff, if this works!

Spring has Sprung

yes, spring is in full swing, and summer is about to happen. I was out in the mojave desert a couple of weeks ago, and when I got back, I painted these little abstracts for a journal of narratives by social workers. I do the covers, and this time the theme was Spring. They are gouache, for the most part.

We miss you.


Lisa Nguyen

My Friend Lisa died on January 9, 2011. We had a tribute show for her, and I made a book of 27 drawings/paintings of her, one for each year of her life. Here are a few of my favorites. She was a fashion plate, and loved all kinds of clothes and looks. I cut the book into thirds, so you could mix and match her head, torso and legs. She used to model for my Costumed Figure Drawing class, and some of the clothes are things I saw her wearing, but most of them were things I just imagined her wearing. It was very fun (and sad).

Wayne White

Wayne spoke at ICON 6, and he was really great. Funny, and smart, and I really enjoyed hearing about his work and his thoughts about his life so far. He is having a show this Fall at Western Projects on La Cienega. I will be going to that for sure.

ICON and Comic Con 2010

Went to ICON 6 and saw some great speakers, and bought a few books. Then the very next weekend was on the ADG/CDG panel at Comic Con. I also saw some old friends there, and bought a few books, and lost my camera. So no photos to post. That place is so overwhelming, that is it hard to draw there. No one is holding still, unless they are standing in line, and there is such a crowd everywhere it is hard to get a clear view of anything for more than a minute. I put the one little drawing I got up here. Also are the sketches from ICON of Craig Yoe, Todd Oldham (which he signed for me!) and D B Dowd. I have another to post, and a few things from the sketch crawl with Jeff Smith that I will post soon.

Summer Sketching

went to Mexico and did a little sketching. mostly just laid around, ate and drank, swam in pool. this doesn't really look quite like Luis, but still like the drawing. that seagull, a young one, sat on the rail of the balcony the whole time I was painting the pool, hoping food was going to become available. he was eyeing the paints, thinking it was possible they were food.
