During my Black Friday sale i recieved 2 purchases for drawings. One from my friends Patty and Will and another from my Brother in law Allen! Unfortunately the one for Allen i forgot to scan before i gave it to them so i ended up taking this picture of it with my phone after i gave it to them. Feel free to click on the images to see them better.
This was real fun to draw frome photographs! It's definately good practice for my comic work plus both of these purchases i would have liked to draw even if they did'nt pay me.
Baby Aiden New Year!
My brother and sister in law have been a really awesome support to us over the years and just recently had there first child Aiden! Yes he's the one in the drawing on the left and he's already an internet star!!! I ended up getting to this drawing finally on New Years Eve so i decided to go with the Father Time/ Baby New Year theme but still kind of dial it back hopefully enough so they could hang it up year round. I loved drawing Allen and Aiden and they were very happy with the Art!
YouTube Friends equal Awesome!
The drawing on the right is for my wife and I new friends Patty and Will. My wife Lindsay just recently met Patty through her YouTube Channel and has quickly began to develop a relationship. The further they got to talking the more we realized how much we all had in common. Will is also into Hip Hop and Comic Books and works in illustration. Plus they both enjoy trying tasty micro brews of all sorts. But especially IPA's. LOL They're a couple after my own heart!!! So anyway Lindsay mentioned my site to them and they proceeded to buy just about every item i had up for sale at the time. Wow what awesome support and encouragement! And then when I had my Black Friday sale Patty purchased a custom drawing as a surprise for Will. You can see there reaction to receiving this drawing if you like in this video. I don't think they liked it do you? LOL
As was the first drawing so was this one a blast to work on. They are a very cute couple and are also very talented in there various artistic endeavors! And I think its awesome that they choose to actively support independent artists even if they had never purchased my stuff.
Thank You Allen and Melissa, Patty and Will for all of your support!!!!
And Thank You everyone for checking in! I'd love to hear what you think of all this so feel free leave a comment!
