Arizona sketchbook

I just got back from a trip to Arizona with Christine and my parents. I brought a sketchbook along with me, and did a page or two whenever I found a poolside table. All of these sketches are pretty loose, due either to wobbly surfaces, the randomness of my drawing utensils, or good ol’ heatstroke.

There’s nine big pages of sketches, which you can download as a PDF by clicking this LINK. (2 MB)

Here’s a sampling to whet your appetite:

Right On Futon murals

During a visit to Chicago last month, I =”ro”>O.E. stopped by furniture emporium Right On Futon to check out the murals I did for the store in 2003. After working out the themes with store owner Mark Bello, I painted futons in fantastic scenarios: as the iceberg that sunk the Titanic, as a cheap jerseys submarine battling a giant squid, wholesale Cleveland Browns jerseys and as a robot attacking the Windy City. The store is also decorated with three sideshow banners I painted for one of Right On Futon’s legendary store window displays. There’s even an 8’x4′ monkey painting to accompany Right On wholesale MLB jerseys Futon’s tiki bar sideline.

It is Heat always nice to wholesale jerseys revisit Stout work and find that it holds out up. Staff at the store say a week doesn’t Luxury go by that customers don’t ask about the murals.
