Hey man, who am I to judge? I've got a lot of Scotty Dog Paraphernalia...
I drew this and I was going to quill the car and the ducky as well, but they just didn't read as nice as when they were in just watercolour so this is how the piece ended up. After drawing this car, I applaud the people who can draw cars so easily. It's quite challenging especially when literally this is the first detailed drawing and watercolour of a car I have ever done.
Anyhoo, I wish the happy couple, happy days for the years to come.

Glade Run Lutheran Services. This piece was intended to be used as part of their video series called "stories of impact". I don't think that the videos are up yet, but you should check out their site especially if you live in the Pittsburgh area.

I was very happy to work with them on this project as this organization, among many support programs, specializes in working with people that are on the Autism Spectrum. As that has affected my family as well, I was pleased that my art could help support their cause.

This piece was part of a commission from a very creative psychologist who I have mentioned before. She really liked the idea of a piece like this, which I had a bit of difficulty creating. Originally she was inspired by the colours of a lovebird. She sent me a great image of two lovebirds cooing together, but she wanted the bird to be flying. Well! I was trying to make lovebirds look graceful in flight in all of my many sketches, unfortunately they just don't fly very gracefully and all of my sketches turned out- well, they didn't turn out. They certainly didn't embody the image of hope. After talking to her some more, I realized my mistake and we settled on a sparrow for the shape, but went a little more stylized with the colours.

This piece was created for the office of a psychologist, I have done several pieces for her and am about to do more. I love her ideas and have had a fantastic time working on them. This goes together with an acceptance piece which I have also created.
