Great #art opening last night for a colleague and friend that I went to college with, #donpendelton. If you haven’t seen his stuff or heard of his name, you definitely will. From killer skateboarding art to album covers he just finished for #pearljam. Dude is on fire and love seeing big things happen to small town friends. Very inspirational! #huntingtonmuseumofart #alienworkshop #marshalluniversity

My favorite sushi place is closing Saturday after 30 years of serving. They are 80 years old and moving back to Japan and traveling while they can. So sad for me but what an amazing journey for that sweet couple. Cheers to a long and fulfilling life! #sushi #weshouldallbesolucky

A little cape buffalo sketch while watching Thor this weekend. Feels good to be back in the sketchbook, and be a little lazy.

A snippet from my sketchbook at a local cafe where a couple of musicians were playing. Always fun and challenging.

A bad photo of my 15 min. sketches from last night’s figure drawing session. I haven’t been drawing much lately so I take what I can get.

Sometimes, I feel the only thing that keeps me alive is art. The creation of it. The view of it. The smell of it. The intensity of it. It’s the only real part of reality.

Nips and tucks from last night’s life drawing session (5 to 15’s). #figurative #sketch #drawing #art #ballpoint #whatamess
