Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to attend a presentation of Dinotopia by the incredible Mr. James Gurney.
Wow.. such skill, passion, and dedication.. Amazing...
So inspiring was his work he got me to not watch tv tonight and paint something!
Cant decide who lives here... maybe dinosaurs... but I can't draw dinosaurs...
Merry Xmas everyone!

Ok ok, is it too late to jump onto the DS Painting bandwagon?!
Just got all the parts today and had to do a test run.
This is too fun.
Like Benjamin P. said, switching up media can help fuel inspiration.
Can't wait to take this baby out and do some actual DS Plein air...

Sorry about the lack of updates.
Been having a hard time finding inspiration.
I must have a dozen or so "starts" of pieces that didn't interest me beyond the thumbnail phase. That, and the Fall TV season started! Wahaha.. what happened to Heroes?!
Thanks to Will for getting on my case about not posting! Finally made me sit down and paint something on Sunday.. Haha.

Was feeling kinda bummed out a couple of weeks ago.
I actually felt better after doing some landscape painting... how dorky is that!
Top one was done at work and the bottom one is from Fort Baker.
SF air is so clean everything looks blue and contrasty... sometimes things are so sharp and in focus me eyes hurt...

So I was heading for Sausalito, but decided to take a random exit right off the San Rafael Bridge and found a Prison!
There's a small stretch of houses facing the bay before you reach the prison. Found a cool spot to paint... I think I was actually on someone's private property when I did this...
Landscape painting is a great way to explore my new surroundings...

Ah, its been too long since the last update. Sorry about that. Lots of stuff going on in my life at the moment...
I got a new gig and will be moving to San Francisco/Bay Area. I'm really looking forward to the new surroundings and working with some of my heroes...
That said, Sparkians, its been a real pleasure working with you guys. Keep pumping out those miracles! Its amazing what you guys are pulling off everyday with that insane schedule!
My friends & foes list is getting a little too long on the right there... so I've organized it according to how much I like the person (Sorry Will, I hate your guts).
Coincidentally, it came out in alphabetical order.
Oh, also, there's another jackson around the art blogs... so I'll be signing comments with me full name from now on.
Finally, I'm trying something new with this piece... pretty loose, I'd say, but super fun to do. I was fortunate enough to visit my friends Khang and Anthony over at Project Offset the other day, and I've been inspired by their talents all over again...
Man, packing sucks....

I have had terrible luck in finding a Wii since its release. This morning was the last time I would waste my time lining up for one. I'm guessing I will have to wait till March or April to find one readily available for purchase...
Anyways, thank you to all the well wishers from last post. I had a great time in Paris and am now addicted to travelling. Next up is Japan I hope!
This started out as a speed painting excercise... Cute furry animals are awesome as long as they don't sing in a movie...
