This is the finished piece for the Ryan Seacrest assignment I was working on. Over all I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Any time I get to paint a face I'm pretty happy. Hopefully everyone else enjoys it as much as I do.

If it were up to me I'd spend the rest of my life painting people. It's amazing to see someone come to life through paint. As I studied portrait painting I was shocked to see the diversity of color that exists in skin tones and to see how different everyone is. These are 2 ink washes that I did a little while back.
This is an old drawing I did in school. It was my first time taking a drawing class and I was so intimidated by the pure talent in that room. It was a great class though I was so happy with my end result and didn't really believe that I could do something that well. Makes me wish I had more time to just practice technique...
I try and keep a regular sketch book and I'm happy that it's a skill that I learned early in my art education. It's amazing to see the huge difference in your drawings just over a couple of pages. All in all this is just a random collection of drawings I've done over time. Hope you enjoy. :)

Here is the primarily drawing for a caricatures I'm working on. The assignment was to create a spot illustration to show that Ryan Seacrest has accepted the offer to be an announcer for the upcoming Olympics. Lets just say this wasn't the most enjoyable assignment ever. I spent around 6 hours sketching different caricatures and about 4 working out the final sketch trying to get it right. He's just too normal to make look silly...
