Alyssa reminded me with her posting that the entries were due tonight. Here's mine!

Banner "Entry"

Uh... Today's the deadline for this right? I just kinda threw this together because I haven't had time for my initial idea. Anyone else have anything?

Work in progress oil painting.

Part of (yet another) series of portraits I'm working on which will be showing in a gallery in Plantsville CT in February. This still needs a lot of work.

PS - the quality sucks. Took the photo with my cell phone.

Album art

Did this a few weeks ago for a friend's band. His album will never come out though.

New tablet.

Finally got my new intuos4 wacom tablet. First sketch with it, 10 minutes.

After working with a broken tablet for 2 years I feel like I can actually make good digital lineart now.

Here's a group of comic artist's blog. Each week they pick a topic and then everyone posts on that topic. Great work.

A Week of Feet

I do have stuff to post, I just haven't gotten around to photographing anything lately. In any case, it's feet for this week. Rawr!

New Year, New Look

Hey everyone! With the new year, can come lots of new and exciting ideas about how we want to improve our selves and surroundings. What I'm getting at here, is that Open Sketch Book needs a better look. Let's start with a banner. Guide Lines: Post your submission ideas for a new banner here. The banner must say "Open Sketch Book Society" somewhere in it. Dead line is January 31.

From February 1 to February 6th there will be an open vote (that means everyone and anyone) for which banner they would like to see at the top of blog. Everyone is entitled to one vote only. I encourage people to vote for which banner they think really represents Open Sketch Book Society and not just vote for themselves.
Please send your vote in the subject line of an email to:

Go create!
