I have been on an illustrating kick, doing drawings of Popeye characters, and also comic book characters, and watercolor painting them. Watercolor is not my strong point, but I keep practicing. Here are my most recent.

I yam what I yam

If you don't know me, or know me but have been living in a cave, I am a lifelong POPEYE fan. I'll leave it at that. Now, IDW Publishing has been making new Popeye comics (first in over 20 years) and being that it would be a lifelong dream come true to draw for that publication, I have often submitted drawings and paintings in hopes to be accepted for a cover or sequential artist (the purty pikchures inside the book). These are the most recent attempts. Wish me luck. They're pencil with ink and watercolor.
Now that the rush of the holiday orders are done, I'm able to work on my personal projects again in the studio (as well as the mural project at the Rose City Middle School, as posted previously). I'm submitting more work for consideration for the IDW Publishing POPEYE comics (so far no luck but I'm going to keep trying! It's a dream job for me), and finishing up a couple graphite drawings. The drawing below (I Think) is finished. It's been waiting for me to work on it again for 6-12 months, give or take a week. If you can't tell, it's Robert Plant.

New Year's catching up blog post!

Sweet mamma!!! I didn't realize I hadn't posted in over a month!! It's been a busy month, with Christmas commissions, family and working on murals for the Rose City Middle School. Yup, that pretty much catches you up on what Nuttall Art's been up to. Oh, and I did caricatures at a New Year's Eve party in Bay City. Below are images of the murals I've done so far at the middle school. I'll be doing 2 or 3 more in the next couple weeks. I've also added a family portrait I drew for a family for Christmas.
