A few months ago I shot a promo for Tualatin Valley Public Television
here in Beaverton using a song and a puppet that I made. I got an email today from the station requesting another episode.
I should probably start getting something together.
I think I'll keep them short at 5 to 10 minutes long.
They take a long time to edit!
Dog art was approved, and now I can start on a new project.
I have a couple new things on the horizon. I want to start on either a comic or children's book. I also have a painting series in mind. Now, I have to get off of my butt and actually do what I have in mind. That's the toughest part!

Progress! They said the last sketch was a big step in the right direction. I guess the character has a whole back story. I wasn't aware of that. They said to give him an apron, plump him up, and reverse his arms (as far as what they are carrying). We'll see if this one is a go, so I can move on to a new project. Worked another 13 hour day, so I am exhausted. Drawing at home is more fun than designing for boxes.

We hung this painting up in our bedroom that I did a couple of years ago. It has no frame, and we thought that it would hurt a lot less if it fell on us in an earthquake than the previous metal framed wedding photo that we had. This was my big state fair painting winner. I should enter it in the Oregon state fair. Probably more competition here than in Sedalia.

So, I am working on some concept art for this company that makes homeade dog treats. I've gone through a couple of rounds of sketches so far. The first round they said was too skinny and the hands and feet were too human like. They also said it looked like the grinch. Okay, I get it. Now that I look at it, I understand.
So, the next drawing is much portlier with big paws, and friendlier expression. It was also drawn with a pencil verses the WACOM tablet. The pencil on plain old paper makes a more exciting drawing (better line work I think.) Hopefully the second sketch is a go. It's good to have a brutally honest customer.
