Ink Wash school assignment

As part of my Graphic Design course requirement, I am taking a drawing course. This week we had to do what is called an Ink Wash. It similar to watercolor, in fact, some regard the two to be one-in-the-same. However, the difference is you use water soluble paint doing watercolor but you use water soluble ink, the same that can be use for caligraphy, to do an ink wash. I have never done it before. It is very interesting to say the least. You primarily use paint brushes but can also use other items. I used different items in addition to the various paint brushes like paper towel sheet, a sea sponge, cardboard and a plastic tooth pick.

We had to do a black and white landscape as an ink wash medium. I re-created an old photograph taken by idib, inc back in 1983 of a man who appears to walking with a cane in the woods or a park wearing a long coat and top hat.

Here is the final production (above) and the original photo (below).



Gotta Love the Muppets...bring back the muppets pls!

Yahoo had an article on the home page about the Muppets hitting a high on YouTube with this musical performance. I have always been a fan. I just had to share.

The Last Hoorah! Farewell to Sam & Maggie

Hello Everyone,

I have posted and uploaded images of Sam & Maggie both dogs who take walks with my dog, Molly. Unfortunately, Same and Maggie left to go back to their original owner, who raise them from little puppies. So Pauline and I took my boys and the pack for one last outing to the pit area. Here are some of the images to remember their last day together.
