I was able to tighten up the sketch I did of Jacques Cousteau,while in the hospital for my foot. I have sudo Gout or Carious (not sure about the spelling) but I am home and got 7 caricatures and a gag editorial Illustration to work on, so I can not play on this one any more. I hoe you enjoy and check out all the other artist on the Caricaturama Showdown 3000 very talented artist on the page

Study of a Frank Frazetta

I found this old study of a Frank Frazetta piece I did in my college days at Ringling College of Art and Design back in 1992 in a Fiore Custode painting class. It was not an assignment and I specifically remember I was working on it while my teacher was making a lecture, he was so cool about it that he actually encouraged me, thank you again for everything you have shown me.

The same goes to my other professors at the college, other artist, friends and family that currently constantly encourages me in my life as an artist. I am proud to say if I did not learn from my every day mistakes that I would not be what I am today. I will try harder to more focused on the constant battle of balancing family, work and fun!

David Bowie big fan of his work

I have been working on my children's book and will be finished I hope before Christmas, I had to keep saine and paint something I experimented on. I like keeping the sketch visual, and having some areas more detailed. I have always liked the strange factor of Davids music, and I tried to capture that in his painting. Do all think that the style works and did I really get a likeness?
