I just finished these little paintings a couple days ago for a small art show in my boyfriend's home town. I don't enter very many shows (because I'm lazy), but he convinced me to enter this one. It's a show called Fragments at the Bakersfield Museum of Art, and every piece must represent fragments in some way on a 5" x 5" canvas. I did three under the same theme: Fragments of Time (homage to Eadweard Muybridge). So not only are they literal fragments of a whole subject, but they're also fragments of an action frozen in time by photography. I thought it was a pretty good idea, I hope that the museum people like it.
If you don't know what photography I'm talking about, you're missing out. I have several Muybridge books that seriously rock.

I drew these mermaids a while back for fun. I inked them recently for some practice and I colored one of them quickly to see how it would look. Besides that, nothing new. Except that I read Watchmen for the first time, twice in a row. That book is freakin' intense! But the movie is going to suck!
More fun stuff to come!
