Thanks for your comments, everyone--you're too kind. My drawings are too literal and lack technique, but fortunately my subject was impressed. :p Kids are pretty easy to please for the most part.

I have also very much enjoyed seeing all of the awesome creations here:
tankyguy and bayone, I am amazed at the diversity of your work: I could stare at it all day and still find new details to admire.
wildandfree, your image is beautiful, and the fact that you were able to do that by burning wood blows my mind.
freakyfred, I'm not sure what your occupation is, but your comics and T-shirt designs are quite professional-looking.
biglynch, I like all of your selfies, but the one above is especially charming because it shows us a whole new side of your personality. :)
lille, that is adorable! You should frame it and hang it up somewhere as a reminder of those sweet puppy days.
shandyman: cool graphics; they're definitely worth the color page charges. ;)
kazak, I bet your pieces would be a hit at those weapons/chain mail boutiques I've seen at Renaissance fairs.

Thank to everyone who posted--like Saisha said, please keep 'em coming!

leonard.bass,
I had mentioned it briefly in another thread, and I just typed it out instead of keeping it in my brain, so I figured I would post this here. It was a WIP hip hop song that kind of just turned into a WIP poem, as that's a fine line to begin with. It's also one of the many things to have been produced in therapeutic service to my recent breakup, so you've been warned and all that.

"I'm on so many mood stabilizers it's like I shill for Pfizer
But I don't get them prescribed from health care providers
Unless you count Doctor Morgan or Doc Daniels
Who provide all the liquid forget that I can handle
I'm on so many mood stabilizers it's like I shill for Pfizer
But I don't get them prescribed from health care providers
I'm smoking more than a wood-fire chimney
Because Mary Jane is the only girl who hasn't abandoned me
Booze and smoke have always been the go-to when I've been laid low
Recently spending so much time bent at the elbow
In the right position the light these pipes and take these shots
That it's fair to say that L. Bass is looking like tea pot
And yeah I got a problem, but substance abuse that isn't it
The problem is I'm missing the girl that I'm in love with
And if that seems over the top or melodramatic
Let me remind that it's better than if I actually was an addict
Because after I've gotten through this I can break those bad habits
But until then if you pass this sad sap a chalice I'm going to grab it
And drink deep from that cup until my foie gras runneth over
Because of all the things I'd like to be right now, the last is sober
And don't get it twisted I'm not trying to drink into an early grave
In fact I'm on all these chemicals in an attempt to save
Myself from myself because when you define yourself by someone else
And then that person goes away that hurt is deeply felt
So yeah I smoke a lot of weed in an attempt to numb the pain
Because weed is the closest thing I can get to novacane
And if my choices are to feel depressed or to feel nothing at all
Then it isn't really a choice; it's an easy call
That's why I'm on so many mood stabilizers it's like I shill for Pfizer
But I don't get them prescribed from health care providers
Unless you count Doctor Morgan or Doc Daniels
Who provide all the liquid forget that I can handle
I'm on so many mood stabilizers it's like I shill for Pfizer
But I don't get them prescribed from health care providers
I'm smoking more than a wood-fire chimney
Because Mary Jane is the only girl who hasn't abandoned me"

I don't do much photography but I had to snap sunrise over the frozen Atlantic this morning.

Haven't posted anything in awhile, but I've been trying lately to do some paintings of... objects that aren't necessarily alive, but are head-shaped (styrofoam mannequin head, clay head I made last year, spoon), as kind of a way of practicing portraiture without human models.
Anyway, here's a teaspoon:

I love this thread. I love seeing the creative sides of people! I dabble in various arts... here is an offering of pyrography. For those who are not familiar. .. pyrography (wood burning) is the application of intense heat (usually an electric calligraphy-like pen) to wood, paper or leather.

This is birch.
Absolutely gorgeous! :bow:

I usually post these in the 'Got Talent' thread, but since it's artwork I'll put it here. This is the new version of the cover for my next record. I had an earlier version posted in the other thread, but I zapped it.

Two years working on this album (off and on), and just getting ready to mix it. Should be out in the spring.

This is fantastic! You made a simple spoon into something beautiful and interesting. I enjoy playing with paints but I don't have nearly enough patience for anything realistic, I tend to stick to more abstract things.

Enjoyed taking photos for as long as I can remember but started playing around more during the last few weeks. Thinking of maybe doing a course or something. Anyway, here are a few photos I have recently taken that I like and a couple of older ones thrown in for good measure. (Click on the thumbnails)

You sure have an eye for photography. I especially like the swan picture :happy:

Thank you :)

Yeah I like the swan picture too, the beads of water look amazing. Not 100% sure how I did it but i am still learning.
