Keeping spirits up – summer near closing…

It’s been a tough summer. Loosing my father to cancer in June & treading water with freelance jobs enough to keep a roof over my head. At least I have a roof for now, right?

Well, I intend on getting back on my feet and forging on. One good turn of late is a bigger studio job is finishing up and that lifted mine and my studio mates’ spirits. We just need to keep it going to the end of the year. Now with summer nearing a close, I thought I’d share some summer fun art before the fall.

Should be no surprise that there all ladies here. Based on photo reference, created with pencil, Sketchbook pro & finished in Photoshop CS3. Enjoy the rest of the Summer folks, I think for me, Dad would have wanted it that way.

    Hi Tom.

    Sorry to hear about the rough times you’ve had this summer. I hope things get better for you.

    Nice update. I always love to see new work form you. A couple things here I haven’t seen. I really like that top one.

    Take it easy. I’ll be checking back often.
