Got a commission for pencil drawing work, sketches about prehistoric tribe characters and wildlife. Creating illustrations to be used on John dini’s initial book tour to help present ideas behind his book.
He based a lot of his thoughts while writing this book on prehistoric logic. These pencil drawings were made in his direction, for a slide show presentation of the prehistoric ideas as he presented his new book. He is a successful speaker, writer, and coach doing many book tours and speaking engagements throughout his career. He was a joy to work with, his name is John Dini, and the book is entitled, “Hunting in a Farmer’s World”.
Pencil drawing is one of my favorite mediums.
Here are two of the sketches for the preliminary test to get the job. My pencil drawings are not published in his book but hopefully, they assisted in making his book successful.
You don’t always know where your art will end up. It is always a happy day, just to be hired as a working artist! Drawing is a great way to spend any day.
What does an artist do on the weekend? Paint neighborhood address signs of course!
Here are two signs masked off ready to shoot with black for the arrows.
If you have ever been over to visit our place you would know why these signs are needed. I bet you we are in the UPS and FedEx drivers “stink list” for being hard to find.
Oh well! These are directional signs (for the two bends in our private road debatable as a driveway) made of signboard (expensive smooth plywood) and coated with white house paint 2 coats yesterday. Now the (black) arrows are laid out and masked off with masking tape so I can shoot the arrow backgrounds.
Painting neighborhood address signs process. Honest occifer! I did NOT use that spray can of paint! Oh, my fingernails… it is a new way to do my nails I tried using the spray paint to see if I could airbrush them myself. Has anybody got bail money?
