Solo Father and Son

Hello World!  I've got a late update for the portrait of Han Solo and a slightly late update on the portrait of Kylo Ren.

Han Solo, once a general of the resistance and then a legend of  smuggler.  But he's most memorable for being the pilot of the Millennium Falcon.  Space gunslinger.  

Although, for me, I watched him as Indiana Jones before I even learned that he was also Han Solo.  I really love the dynamic between Han Solo, Leia Organa nd Luke Skywalker.  

Emo Kylo Ren

Emo Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren, a new character in the continuation of the legendary series that is Star Wars, was very intimidating when he first came on screen.  How can you not be amazed and at the same time terrified of someone who can stop a laser blast in mid-air?  I loved having gone into the movie guessing who Kylo Ren may be.  After learning that he was related and part of the Skywalker and Solo legacies, I thought he became even more interesting.  

Star Wars month is almost over with just one portrait left!  I'm pretty sure that you guys would have a good guess who is next.  Also, Han Solo marks my 20th portrait and his son, Ben breaks that 20 and is the 21st portrait.  

Until next time, keep busy staying dizzy!

Brandon Boyd in Pastel

To celebrate and pay tribute to one of my favorite musical and visual artists, I tried making a portrait in soft pastel of Brandon Boyd.  I enjoy seeing his art work and listening to his music.  I still remember when I got to watch him perform at the Fillmore as part of Sons of the Sea on his birthday.  It was electrifying.

But I don't need to tell you guys how awesome he is.  You should check him out for yourselves!  

Until the next time, keep busy staying dizzy!



Alicia Keys in pastel

Alicia Keys was one of my favorite artists growing up.  I always enjoyed her piano playing combined with her soulful singing.  I drew her years ago in charcoal when I was much younger.  So, it was exciting for me to go back to doing a portrait of her in Soft Pastel, a medium that I never expected myself to enjoy using so much.  

I hope you guys enjoy!

Until the next time, keep busy staying dizzy!
