Ill Omens

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
~ W.B. Yeats (excerpt from the Second Coming)

More spring cleaning! I found this tucked away in a pile of stuff. I guess I started it... yeesh, around last September. I couldn't remember why I abandoned it mid-painting, so I figured I'd put a couple more hours into it this afternoon and finish it up. The world could use some more baboons, anyway. ;]

Desert Rose

Ever the wide world over, lass,
Ever the trail held true,
Over the world and under the world,
And back at the last to you.
~ Kipling

Another product of some spring cleaning--I actually started painting this back in December, I think, and have been slowly adding bits of paint to it when I have the time. Some parts I like, a few things I wish I could have done differently...but in the end its nice not to half have finished paintings cluttering up my workspace. :]

DJ Pilot

I've been working on a large comic project that's kept me more-than-busy the last few months, though I have managed to do a couple of paintings on the side. During some spring hard-drive cleaning, I found a few and figured I'd post some.

I painted this as a gift for my brother's birthday a week ago. He happens to enjoy music as well as a good sci-fi reference or two, so it worked out well. ;]
