My nephew and godson, Noah, played Cogsworth in his school play, "Disney's Beauty and the Beast Jr." We saw his performance last week at South Decatur Elementary. He did a great job!!! He is seen here having a conversation with Lumiere.
Okay, so here is a pic of the other gift, which allows me to unabashedly show off my latest little artwork (which is the underlying theme of my blog anyway). It's a chicken bank, which originally was blank white and intended to be decorated, so I couldn't resist doing that for Noah. Here are the pics. I'm not sure which he liked more, the bank or the cold, hard cash that was lovingly placed in it.
Thanks to Noah, Alli, Trent, Lori, Mitch, and Joan for a fun afternoon. And thanks for the farm eggs!! That will always keep us coming back for more!!

I was working on this drawing last night. I've been reading Tom Richmond's tutorials on caricature, and trying to apply his technique. Tom is an amazingly talented illustrator for MAD Magazine. If you like looking at funny caricatures, you should check out his blog. He cracks me up! http://www.tomrichmond.com/caricatures.php

I once took a class at the IAC called "The Art of Storytelling". We had to make a series of two or more images that told a story without words. My little series is meant to be viewed at full size, in the order shown, so please click on each one to view it. Tell me if it makes sense to you. I am curious to see if the viewers' interpretation is similar to the one I intended to communicate. Warning: It's so powerful and deep, you might pass out. ;) Just kidding.

Christ is Risen!
I missed church today, because it was my weekend to work. But Christ was with us in the NICU today, as He is every day.
Here's hoping you all had a wonderful Easter holiday!
This is a sketch I did of a detail from Guercino's painting Christ and the Woman Taken in Adultery, c. 1621. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus_and_the_woman_taken_in_adultery
