Lately I have really missed painting. I wanted to feel the fun and sense of accomplishment of moving the paint around to form an image with textures and colors that were pleasing to my eye and hopefully someone else’s too. So I took up the challenge of painting a portrait for the Head & Shoulders group show for this coming First Friday arts celebration. Nothing big mind you (seriously this piece is the size of a business card) just something I could do for the sheer fun of it. So I grabbed this image I sketched last November and took a stab at it.

What do y’all think, should I keep painting or stick to the pencil?
Looks like we made it through the month. 30 days 27 posts and 32 sketches. Not bad for a first skadamo run -not a great finish but a respectable one. I wanted to say thanx to the other Skadamites for their encouragement and friendship I plan to keep tabs on you folks, it has been a good ride and I hope I can keep this momentum for a while. So speaking of which; I’m sticking with the “Dog Run” of the last few days I’ll leave you with this charming fellow.
whadaya mean it's over? -we just got here!

This is the black dog. keep clear of him if you can. He may look friendly and easy to handle but he will ruin your life if you let him in.
more skadamo but only one day left :.(
Been crazy busy this week sorry I missed yesterday, It couldn’t be helped. I gotta get the payin’ gigs out the door first. But here’s a fresh one right off the still smokin’ pencil. I just started scratching at the sketch pad and wound up with a dog in space. Yeah I have no idea either but here you go free of charge and worth every penny you paid for it.
First arrival on planet K-9
Can’t seem to get to the drawing board today (truthfully I did but I can’t show anything till the project is done, but that is just between you and me) so here are 2 pages of brainstorming from a while back for a kid’s menu. Since it is the aftermath of Thanksgiving, leftovers seem apropos. I will serve up something fresher tomorrow. -ciao

Skadamo Illustration Friday
I woke up with a nasty migraine and I probably will not get to see my family today so I am in a beastly mood but I did manage to find something good in a bad situation in this little scribble below. It’s all I can manage today but it’s still a sketch so yay for me. As you might have guessed I sketched this while sipping my morning java. You might also notice a slight Chris Sanders influence as I was enjoying one of his sketchbooks before bed last night, ‘guess his critters slipped in my brain during dreamtime. Hey maybe this guy gave me my headache.
