Blast from the past: This is a fella I created for a competition. A studious looking penguin on a skateboard. I have never seen a skateboarder stand on a skateboard like this, but I once saw a bulldog on a skateboard. Had the same body language. This never went anywhere, so I thought I'd give the guy his day in the sun on the blog. I am busily preparing for the kids to go back to school (supplies, mostly, which cost way more than I care to mention). I'm also getting ready to do some major painting for the show coming up. I am excited about the new pieces and to get started on them, but I need to work in my studio to make more room. With everything in there, there's barely enough room for the artist.
