There comes a time in every comic book artists life that they will most likely draw Batman. Here I share a watercolor I did as a giveaway for my Braun Kickstarter. =s=

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. Just bananas.
If you’ve been following me on social media I’m sure you’ve seen me preaching the gospel of my KICKSTARTER. It’s been going swell. And what makes it special are these ART GIVEAWAYS I keep doing every time we chalk up another 50 backers. Anyone pledging over $40 is eligible.
Why is that, Shane?
I’ll tell you. It costs less for me to add a little more shipping than to package and ship something entirely on it’s own. Besides, it’ll be better protected within the confines of the book. The earlier you get in the more chances you have to win. Talk about marketing rhyming scheme…damn, Superman! 🙂
So, please, check out the video below and if you feel compelled to support me this Holiday Season I might be able to put in a good word with the fat man in red.
When you can’t run, you hide in plain sight. I used to love running but at some point that didn’t seem to be reciprocated by my aging ankles. At least biking is still an option. So instead, watercolors at 30 paces. Hadn’t done one in awhile. Makes me miss putting that into rotation. Will do more soon.
Hectic days for the past month or so. Been very busy with house remodeling and have had very little time to post or paint. I think about it everyday though and I’m constantly studying the light.
This collection is from our trip in April to San Francisco, San Quentin, Monterey and Carmel’s Point Lobos State Nature Reserve. Aside from the stinky seals and pesky poison oak, it’s a painting wonderland of riches all the way down to Big Sur. I was only able to paint once or if I was lucky twice a day. The air was dryer and the paints dried fast.
It was a mix of cold wind and warm sun throughout, so it was always hard to judge what right clothing to wear. Luckily I was prepared for most of it.
I think my favorite area was Carmel. There was a lot of bio-diversity there as well as the stretch down the 101 to Big Sur. Could have stayed there for another week easily.
I worked in gouache and watercolor but was having more luck with the gouache. Sometimes it takes me a few pieces to get my feet back under me.
Even still, I didn’t spend anymore than an hour on most of these. Except for a few of the more complicated pieces. Can’t wait to get back at it after all this house stuff is done.
