SkaaaDaaaMo

Well here it is day 5 and I’m just getting started sheesh. I’ve been lost in the figurative wilderness the last few days but I’ll try to keep up as much as I can. I have way to much going on this month but I’d hate to miss out on all the fun.

Citizen Mark

This is Mark, he is my oldest friend we have known each other since 6th grade. He is at least as smart as Wile E. Coyote, Super Genius and will some day take over the world if Pinky and the Brain don’t get there first.

What do we do today Mark? -“The same thing we do every day, take over the world.”

Jake, Meg, Mady & Pete

Here are a few more birthday sketches, I think I’m getting the hang of it.

Jake Dill, Kevin Parks Artist, Pencil Sketch, Portrait, Characature,

Jakenstein, my daughter Meghan’s main squeeze. When Jake is not knockin’em dead doing  stand-up or killin’em on the radio he can be seen skulking around dark windmills avoiding angry villagers, torches and pitchforks.

 

Meghan Parks, Kevin Parks Artist, Pencil Sketch, Portrait, Characature,

Where would Jakenstein be without a strong woman to keep him in line? Nowhere, so here’s my first born, Meghan filling the part. She’s a pretty funny comedienne too who’s sure to keep you in stiches (see what I did there, stiches, get it? Meg you can have that one free).

 

Mady, Kevin Parks Artist, Pencil Sketch, Portrait, Characature,

My other niece who’s cute as a button and an aspiring broadway songbird, Mady.

 

Pete Ruiz, Kevin Parks Artist, Pencil Sketch, Portrait, Characature,

My pal Pete, best photo studio manager west of the Pecos.

Elemental Sketches

I’m Working on something new, the personification of the 4 basic elements. I have been playing with this theme since my twenties, still exploring.

Rose & Thorn

One of my paintings “Murder of One” has the honor of cover image for the latest and unfortunately, final issue of the Rose & Thorn Journal of prose and poetry. Please visit their website and wish them well in their future endeavors. They also have a facebook page.

posted this a while back and I imagine that is how they found me and graciously offered me a place in their last issue. They included a brief bio and artist’s statement on their website so check that out if you are interested in that sort of thing.

Thank you Alaine Benard for including me in your swan song. I wish you all the best for you and your fellow R&T staffers.
