Sketch Theatre anyone?

After finishing some cover layouts and taking a break from painting, I thought that I would catch up on my google reader. Bad idea! I came across this amazing website and am now hooked. Sketch Theatre ( ) allows artists to post videos of their drawing process. LOVE IT! All my fellow artists will be able to understand why this is an easy place to get lost in. Alas, gathering inspiration is a good thing and productive way to spend one's time, right?

San Tan Sun News write up

How neat is this? In the current edition of the San Tan Sun News (July 17 to August 6, 2010) there is a little note about the illustrations on display at the Tempe Youth Library which is downstairs at the Tempe Public Library. I have some of my Pen and Ink work up from the first "Wright on Time - Arizona" book. Molly Idle and several beautiful pieces up from her upcoming book "Circus Fantastico: A Magnifying Mystery" and Sylvia Long is showing a couple of exquisite paintings from her new book "Thumbelina."

I'll try to swing by there next week to take some photos so that I can post them. Also, if you have not yet started reading the "Wright On Time" series, the library now have a few copies of the first two books that you can check out. Book three, "Wright on Time - Wyoming" should be out in a couple of weeks and Book 4, "Wright on Time - South Dakota" is schedule for release around the holidays.

Happy reading and drawing to all.
