Rhino Beetle

My piece for the Six-Legged Freaks show opening Saturday April 10th at Cactus Gallery in Eagle Rock (See post below). I wanted it to look like a Victorian studio portrait of a young boy and his pet. I gave it a sepia tone, and "tinted" a couple of areas to make them stand out. The colors look better in person.

Finished piece
Watercolor & Pen

Something I don't show often on here- a work in progress before color and cross hatching.
Pen & pencil

Birthday Mouse

I dressed up a little mouse for a birthday present. The real stuffed mouse is from Necromance in LA. I made the hat, cake, and banner from paper and tiny pom poms. The plastic balloons are a cake decoration. I got the little glass house is from an antique store. It was a success!
