I finished painting my skate deck today, a tribute to my teen years a long, long time ago.

Tonight I pulled a number of old sketchbooks out of the drawer. Some of them date back almost 20 years. A lot of the art is really bad and painful to look at, but still, I really love those books. So many of my best ideas have come from my sketchbooks. Even tonight I thumbed through the pages and found inspiration for several projects.
The moral of this story is this: sketch often. Put your ideas down on paper, even if you only have time for stick figures and chicken scratches. The time will come when many of those ideas evolve into something meaningful.

The robots are taking over . . .
I have always loved robots . . . Olympia, R2D2, V.I.N.CENT, Twiki, Johnny 5, Robby, Wall-E, etc. They provide a unique lens through which to view humanity. Here are a few more robot paintings I am working on. They hold a particular meaning for me, but I am fascinated by the many interpretations others suggest, so I won't offer much as far as explanations go. I will post them again in their finished state . . . hopefully soon.
