so here i am, another week another illo....and yet another new twist. this weeks topic was the perfect time for me to pull out the scratchboard. i had only delved into this medium a few times, so i decided to get some tools and some boards and try my hand at it again. i really enjoy this one and it was a great idea for messing around with some different textures. this piece starts playing one of my fave 311 songs in my head everytime i see it, 'thank you lucky stars.' what a perfect fit right?! enjoy.

well, i guess its better small than nothing at all. i wanted to retake some pix of this big piece i did a while back, but i had a crazy hectic week. between work, halloween, and now dog sitting....i didnt really have time to do something new or remember to take new pix of this one. Hopefully i will remember to do it sometime this weekend or next week and ill repost a bigger version of it. its a pritty big canvas....dont have the exact measurements but its bigger than 26x34, you can tell i didnt have much time to measure it either. ah well. this one was really awesome to paint and i added some glitter to the flames. i really wish i could display this one better the first time around, but alas, if i waited to post the bigger version, i wouldnt be able to get it on the site in time. so here it is. i will repost hopefully by next week. so please come back and check on it if youre interested. enjoy.
