Northern California experienced record breaking rains this year. I tried to remember that as I painted this piece. I wanted to make everything look as green as possible. The hint of golden sunlight breaks through the sky as this happy couple doesn't let the weather distract them from each other's attraction.

Here's two drawings I just completed for a friend's participation in the "Avon Walk for Breast Cancer". My friend was looking for t-shirts and baseball cap images using her theme called "Tickled Pink". It represented their walking/running team.
Luckily, they're also good images for this week's Illustration Friday word: "run".

Looking down from a tall hill and onto the San Francisco skyline, I sketched this drawing of the Palace of Fine Arts. I'm sketching with a group that meets once a month. Today we met at the "new" Letterman Digital Arts Center. George Lucas and other media businesses built their offices on an abandoned San Francisco Army base called the Presidio. It was a spectacular day with well designed landscaping surrounding grand buildings. The sketching group has grown to be a lot of fun. By the end of the day, I go away with some nice drawings and meet some interesting artists as well. For those of you interested, here's a plug for the group that I meet these terrific people: The Graphic Artists Guild Saturday Afternoon Drawing Salon.

I began to draw Tarzan swinging vine to vine but as I was drawing it, I realized it's something we've all seen before. So, for a twist, I tried to show him in a paprozzi photograph of him hanging on for dear life. I zoomed into his facial features and included a band of animals equally as scared. We'll probubly never view Tarzan the same way again!
