Weekly Bow Tie Guy

Zebra (ˈzēbrə)

For my last post of the year I am showing the second of the illustrations for the Christmas bookmarks. My oldest daughter's favorite animal is a Zebra. I struggle with the stripes, but I have found I really enjoy the main of a zebra.

Weekly Bow Tie Guy–Dolphin

Dolphin (ˈdälfin)

This year for Christmas I made a book mark for my three oldest children with their favorite animal on it. (the youngest can't read yet.) My youngest daughter had just announced that the dolphin was her favorite. This is a change from the leopard. I was grateful for the change in that drawing the leopard with the spots was not something I was looking forward to. I had been avoiding it. Dolphins on the other hand are really fun to draw. Each book mark had their name and one word that Julia and I felt described them well.

More Random Sketches and a Bow Tie Guy

With it being so close to finals week I am posting more random sketches. The kangaroo is from my visit to the Biodome in Montreal. The man was sketched while at a restaurant. The others are from my head.

Social Justice

Tackling The Issues of Social Justice

This year has been the Year of Social Justice at Lyndon State College. One of the events planed was the visual art's faculty exhibit in the Quimby Gallery titled Cognizant. One of the works I submitted for the show is seen above. This illustrates my realization that Social Justice is a multifaceted complex problem in our society. Often people focus on only one or a few of the aspects and ignore the other issues. It is a challenging problem and each aspect needs attention, but it is difficult to deal with them all.
