Rudy for The Weekly Standard

This is a quick watercolor that I did for The Weekly Standard. They usually want my digital painting look, but for this piece they wanted to try something different. Was fun to work on.

Josh Davenport

This is a watercolor sketch that I did recently of my friend Josh for Bobby Chiu and Kei Acedera's book "Subway Sketches".

Norman Rockwell

Norman Rockwell is by far one of my favorite illustrators of all time. His work inspires a lot of what I do, he was the man. The first image above was done as a study from one of my favorite Rockwell paintings. I tried to see how close I could come to the original painting with watercolor . . . wasn't easy, but turned out decent enough.

The second image was a self portrait that I did, total Rockwell influence, and yes the guy on my right is for real! His name is Lupe, a big dude but a true sweatheart, he couldn't hurt a fly. Oh wait, that's not true, once he accidentally sat on my mother in law's parrot and squashed the life out of him. True story.
