Old Stuff.

Reorganizing old files, and found some even older work. You know what that means? Archival vomit (bare with me here, folks)...even my very first digital illustration - good ol' Fred Sanford (who knows the airbrush tool? Dan knows the airbrush tool, that's who. haha).

Fred Sanford (Photoshop)

The rest of these are oil paint on board / canvas (ahh the good ol' days, when I used to smell like turpentine). Alot of these involved transferring a drawing to hot press illustration board, covering the entire board with masking tape, cutting around the design with an X-acto knife, painting, letting dry, and peeling the tape away. Something tells me that using selection tools in Photoshop is a bit you don't have to use the oven as a drier.
