2009 Cat Calendar

Hi folks! Sorry for the long time between posts. I travelled north last week to visit my sister. It was a lovely trip and I enjoyed seeing her and my nephews. However, I didn't blog while I was up there and that interrupted the good blogging habits I had been practicing before I left. In any case, I'm back and should be posting regularly--at least until the next time I take a vacation.

My news today is that I've got a new cat calendar for sale on LuLu. Those of you who follow my cat art will like it. The images include some of my best selling pictures. Click here if you'd like to have a look.

I love my Wacom Tablet

Morning all. I'm posting a piece this morning to demonstrate a technique that I've been trying to master for some time. I've created a piece entirely with digital media. I've been able to do this for some times, but the results looked either crude or artificial. What I've been after is balance: A blending of what my hand and brain do naturally with the right hardware and software. I didn't know precisely what I was after; however, I figured that I would know it when I saw it since this is the way that I recognize most of my new techniques.

The piece below was drawn on my Intuos3 Graphic tablet, using Painter. I usually pencil a piece on paper then scan it when I do a digital painting. This time the sketch was done on my computer. As much as I like it, I consider this just an early sign of what I'm going to be able to do using this technique. Keep watching my blog for more pieces of this kind.
