New Year and New Post!

I was inspired by the story of Moses, thus this piece was created.

I have recently joined a online art group called The Artstronauts (http://theartstronauts.com/) and created this page for my intro piece for the group.

Me and Jess took the kids recently to the Jubilee Zoo in Shreveport and had a blast. There was all sorts of animals at this quaint little establishment from Camels to Zebra's. Elijah got the chance to milk a goat and bottle feed a baby deer and Evie just ran around wide eyed. 

Jessica introduced me to a facebook group called Pay It Forward Network, which is a LA based team that supports children with illnesses. They find sponsors and donors for everything from clothes to medical bill assistance to just making the kids wishes. My heart was touch by the outpouring of love and the tragic nature of each story, so I believe this page is self explanatory. 

My Mom took the family out to see Cirque Du Soleil~Varekai. The story behind the stage play is a gypsy circus twist on Icarus (who you can see in the top left hand corner of the page). I drew the image of the man screaming "Nooooo" as I imagined this is what Icarus's father looked like. The rest of the fodder on the page is related to images I saw during the performance.


This is a collection of my iPhoneography work.

TMNT~Tour




While pillaging through Goodwill for treasures, I came across a VHS copy of TMNT "Coming Out Of Their Shells" making of the tour video. I picked it up based on the fact that it was Ninja Turles and  Elijah is enamored with them right now. However when I popped it in the ole VCR at home, I was flooded with old memories of going to see the tour in Texas. I had completely forgotten about that moment in my childhood, and was overwhelmed with excitement. Elijah has yet to watch the video, but I look forward to showing it to him and reliving my childhood.


I hope that as Elijah grows that he will hold onto every good memory of his youth and live through those simpler times. We as adults are way too self involved and stressed out. I love talking with him about the things that made me happy when I was his age. So only time will tell if these little father son chats will pay off. And with that bit of nostalgia off my chest I bid you ado. Cheers!

Nerds of the Round Table

Me and some fellow like minded individuals have decided to venture out into the world of internet talk radio. PODCAST! It's named "Nerds of the Round Table" with good reason. All things geek will be
discussed on this podcast and will take the internet by storm. I will be pumping gamma radiation all over each month's episode turning it into a green rage machine that is sure to **SMASH** all other podcasts with one giant fist. So tune in each month and make sure you have your diaper on.....your sure to poop your pants! Excelsior!

Surgery...Down and Out

I've been suffering with stomach issues for the last few months, going from doctor to doctor and procedure to procedure trying to find out what's going on. Finally all of this time, expense, and examinations resulted in surgery. So as of late I haven't really had a chance to blog, draw, and snap photos. So pictured below are a few things that are still in the works and finalized pieces previous to my surgery and recovery.



I had my brave supporter there to cheer me on...

                       
Time to roll out and get my cut on....

                        
Halloween rolled in during my recovery, and unfortunately I was unable to go along due to recovery. But the kids did have a blast, but their candy haul was very skimpy this year.

                         
Evie went as a cat...MEOW!!!! 





This little lady visited me all day every day during my recovery.

This is an phone edit I did a while back but didn't post. It is the first in a series I'm going to do themed to the Passion of Christ.

Scraps


I tried out a new style of journaling today, with some success. I've been heavily influenced by Teesha and Tracy Moore as of late, and I wanted to take a swing at her style. I think this is something that could grow on me.

Flashback


I reworked a page from Journal #2, adding in art marker and prismacolor. I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I like it. You be the judge on this one. Cheers!

The scanner is down, onto my photography.


~Evie & Elijah enjoying some time together. Excavating a T-Rex (plastic) fossil from Elijah's birthday gift from Grandpa. ~


~ I love her innocent look in this photo, so full of wonder. (photo cred to Lyric LaPlante, edited by yours truly) ~


~ I've befriended some interesting people over the years. A recent addition is Scott Summer's, a confederate civil war reenactor. I did a little editing on someone else's photo so show Scott my flair. Who knows, maybe one day I can go out a see him in action and do a full blown session. ~


~ Elijah's has join swim school, and is diving in headfirst. ~


~ Music to my ears~

Burton on Burton...


This page is from an older journal that I never posted, so here you go. I had just seen Dark Shadows, which turned out to be a flop. Nothing like my memories of the original. Anyway I also used the bottom portion of the page to sketch out a drawing from a photo of my Wife's grandfather taken during World War 2. Just random marginalia.
