Last of the Dust Bunnies

I did some serious, move all the furniture vacuuming today. I figured I am now free of dust bunnies for a while and came up with this quick sketch (colored very quickly in photoshop).

Captain America and work ethic

Today at work another temp quit. The first one quitting wasn't a total shock and she seemed more interested in talking than working (so no reall loss there) but the one that was hired to replace her was actually very professional and a good worker. She left (with no notice to us or the temp agency) to start a full time job today. So in hindsight, maybe she wasn't so professional after all. It makes me wonder if people understand the concept of making a committment anymore. In both cases, they were told ahead of time this was a long term (3-4 month) assignment and in both cases, they quit after being there less than 4 weeks. Doesn't say much about the agency we hired them from either.

Here is my sketch for today.... a quick pencil sketch of Captain America. I decided to leave the wings off his head as I never understood what purpose they served.

Weekend art

It's been a full art weekend as I've finished a few more cards for a card set I can't talk about yet and found time to do some "for fun" art. Magik of the New Mutants, drawn on a blank X-Men comic book cover, a Harry Potter sketch card (year 6) and.... the Earth.. created using Autodesk 3ds Max. The Earth is just one part of a larger piece I'll be working on over the next few weekends.

Quick Sketches and Pizza

Today's installment offers both sketches AND a food review. First the sketches... a quick sketch of a moose and rough sketch of a Martian for a card I'm working on as part of the War of the Worlds trading card series.

Now for the food review... a few of us at work decided to try ZPizza today. It's a chain that offers pizza with "organic" ingredients. We ordered a small chicken sausage with vegan cheese and a large ham and pineapple. The large cost $16 and was the size of what I consider to be a medium pizza (I was not the only one who thought it was a bit small). I'm not sure the price of the small, but that seemed to be a reasonable size. The pizzas themselves are thin crust but they weren't crispy. I'm not a fan of crispy crust so on the one hand, it wasn't a problem on the other... I thought it was rubbery. I also thought the ham and pineapple pizza had no taste... it was very bland. The vegan cheese tasted a bit better and the crust didn't seem as rubbery. Definitely not somewhere I would go again, although I know vegans who enjoy it.

Fairyland Base Card Art

This actually isn't "new" art, old art that hasn't been posted. This is the art for the base card I created for Sadlittle's ( ) Essence of Fairyland trading card series. Actual art is roughly 6x8 inches in size (and is available for sale if anyone is interested).
