just got back from NJ

So I went to nj and ny for the past two days with my mom to visit my sister for thanksgiving, it was a really good few days, good to get out of portland and good to spend time with my family. Walked around New York a bit, went to the MET and had a good thanksgiving dinner. Cant say the bus rides were very good, but whatever.
Here's some pages from the sketchbook that i worked on and finished at my sisters.

New Studio!!!!

So I just signed a lease for a studio in Portland, its at The Artist Studio building. I'm super excited for this, not only have I been waiting for a long time to get a studio and searching so much with nothing ever turning up, but its in a real studio building so i'll be surrounded with all other artists, and there is a small printshop in the basement with a woodshop, that is if i'll ever need a woodshop. But ya, really good news, I'm really excited to start doing some work soon!
Here's a picture of the building, its right downtown in Portland, above SPACE gallery and two doors down from where I work at the Art Store.

Anyone else remember when the teenage mutant ninja turtles use to go on tour? i wish i went to one of these when i was little, i was only 5 years old though. I do remember that I met them when I went to Disney World with my family in 1st grade, I forgot that up until now. So I guess I did see them perform, probably one of these really bad songs.

And heres a funny video my buddy Alex showed me last night, Hard Core Ninja Turtles!

Dancing Girl

Here's the new page in my sketchbook that I drew today. I was browsing through the new Bollard paper at work and there was the perfect figure of a girl dancing to base this off of. It was just what i was thinking of. I dont know if its done, I wish the brown was darker. i feel like it is more in real life, it made it alittle bit lighter on the computer. maybe i'll do a few more coffee washes.

The other night

The other night me and my friend Jessica from back home in New Hampshire went to see Conor Oberst at the roxy in Boston, it was pretty amazing, besides the most expensive drinks I've probably ever bought! Really good night though. Here's a video from the show.

Bright Eyes Tonight!

Some new sketchbook drawings I did last week and yesterday. let me know what you think!
I've been working with shapes latly, it doesent have much meaning its just me seeing what I can get out of just using basic lines and circles as well as painting with coffee.

These two red pages were inspired from listening to The Flaming Lips while at work, I've never really listened to them before, but I have to say its good art making music!

This page isent complete, I'll work on it later this week, I'm thinking a dancer/ballerina on the bottom with the red lines coming down kind of like the antlers page. We'll see.

was pretty awesome this year, I dressed up like Popeye the Sailor if you couldent tell. I was pretty proud of my costume! here are some pictures of the night!
