Delicious Dolls Heating up your Winter!

The newest edition of Delicious Dolls magazine, (the November Spicy edition, that features nudity) includes a few pictures I shot, while in Kansas City, of model Rose Ballentine. Rose was a pleasure to work with, I was really pleased with the results and it seems, so was Delicious Dolls Magazine. You can find our work on page 49.

Rose was also very daring and scared the hell out of me when she climbed up on the ironing board near the window! But daring models make great pictures…

Spectrum Fantastic Art Live Sketch

While exhibiting at Spectrum Fantastic Art Live this year we were all informed that Award-winning Illustrator, Concept Artist, Writer, Husband and Father of two Allen Williams could not attend for reasons he had posted on Facebook.

"I feel a little like I'm naming Voldemort here but...I need to say I have recently been diagnosed with HPV related squamous cell carcinoma.  The two-month cure will surely be hard, but it will be the cure that causes difficulty, not the actual disease...somehow, I just have to get through this gate of fire."

We were all asked to contribute a drawing in a sketchbook (that expanded to 2) passed around the show to be auctioned off to help pay his medical bills. Between that and a (since closed) Go Fund Me page, over $50,000 was raised.

I'm sure more money wouldn't hurt, so discover Allen's website and blog and buy yourself some art:

A photo of my sketch can be seen on one of the Spectrum Facebook links showing the books pages (link above). Go to the Facebook page to see some of the other artist's sketches.

U.S. Air Force Painting online

While looking around on the internet I discovered an old painting of mine in the collection of the U.S. Air Force. I painted this oil and acrylic on canvas many years ago while I was a member of the Los Angeles Society of Illustrators. I painted this shortly after graduating from CSU Long Beach with a degree in Illustration.
