I’ve been painting a lot this year.

My scanner does not do this piece justice.

Just because I’ve never seen a machine elf, doesn’t mean I don’t believe.

Every week, I organize The Hammonton Art Center‘s Think Thursday event. From 5-9pm there is a kids’ craft, an artists’ activity, and live music. Everyone is welcome to stop in, and now that you know about it I hope to see you there.
Each week I give the musicians portraits I draw of them as they play. Part of me wishes I archived these drawings. The rest of me is very happy that I exchange an evening of my art for an evening of theirs. It is a dream come true to be able to provide a place where the visual and performing arts come together.
Last night, The Hammonton Art Center was lucky enough to have the thought provoking Kimberly Townsend perform. She agreed to allow the whole Figure Drawing club set up easels and draw her as she played. As it was a night dedicated to life drawing, I was able to keep a few of the sketches. Most of my better drawings went to her. Below are the drawings that did not.
As always, click on images to enlarge them.

The room of a new friend.
Simple, quick piece of concept art for a generic castle guard.
Awwww, look at college Jen being artsy! This is a self portrait done my first year at SCAD. Unfortunalty, this piece is not for sale due to damage taken during one of my many moves. A little insider info here, I made the hat myself. It also is life sized!
