Ketubah

This is a recently completed project for friends of mine getting married. According to Wikipedia, "A ketubah (Hebrew: כְּתוּבָּה ; "written thing"; pl. ketubot) is a special type of Jewish prenuptial agreement. It is considered an integral part of a traditional Jewish marriage, and outlines the rights and responsibilities of the groom, in relation to the bride." Click the image for detail shots.

Today is Epiphany

Epiphany is celebrated every January 6, marking the visit of the Three Wise Men. This piece was partially based on a 16th century painting of Ottoman astronomers as well as Islamic imagery of the angel and Jesus/Mary... I was thinking about the story of Jesus being shared by both Christianity and Islam, along with the idea of people who study the stars. The disc is called an Astrolabe, and was a primary tool for navigation. I'm not sure the story of the Wise Men can be found in the Islamic tradition, however... hopefully this works.

Beam Reach

My Dad has a sailboat on Vancouver Island, and he loves this thing very much. I was on a trip a couple years ago and we got excellent winds and wild waves.

So I made him a little comic about it for his birthday.

An Old Pontiac

"Aaron, what the hell have you been doing all summer?" he said, impatiently. "Well," I said, "I drew this old Pontiac."

Draw Till You Drop II

This past Saturday I took part in an event called Draw Till You Drop (Part 2). It was a marathon of figure drawing... I only lasted about 7 1/2 hours. I had forgotten my quill pen at home, so I ended up using a brush, which garnered some interesting departures.
