Going International

So the ferris wheel piece i was working on earlier in the summer needed much more work. Thank you all for your comments and suggestions. I changed quite a bit of things about it (including the proportion) I was approached by my friend Akari to display my art in an art & music festival held every year in Sapparo, Japan. Unfortunately I couldn't attend the gallery but here is a photograph of some of the works displayed along with my piece:

If ya smell what BARACK is cookin!

Happy Birthday Obama! or at least it was his birthday yesterday. I decided to do a quick (emphasis on quick) portrait of President Obama in celebration. I've been wanting to draw him for a while. I guess drawing him in November would have been cliche? This started off as a quick blue monochromatic portrait then i added some random splashes of orange and brown (maybe it was too much?) Either way this was fun to do. I might go back and finish it later on. I have other projects in mind right now and even a few I have already started including a portrait of Tito Puente. Keep an eye out for new updates from me! I'm going all out until school starts again in a few weeks.
