So the art guild I belong to is doing a Day of the Dead exibit. I like
that holiday so I decided to do something up for it. It's me so it's

Well this one was a bit of work. I worked up a bunch of sketches for Gomez to see what he'd like. I worked on that for a couple weeks. Finally came up with a decent one. Worked that one up. Here's the result.
After seeing a few of my other trailers Timberleaf trailers asked me to do one of there's. Here's the result. It was a fun project. I added some details of my own. Like the kettle and pour over coffee filter. The owner sent me some personal photo's and in one they had some hand crocheted flags, so I added those also.
I had been debating about painting a bike for Odin's this year. I had thought about just offering up one of my other done paintings. I had started a Surly Straggler a few months prior and it had just been sitting in a rough sketch phase. I had been looking at my art work and how I've progressed over the years. One thing I thought I liked about some of my older pieces was the roughness of the painting. I was wondering if I could get that quality back. Not as precise. Loser edges. So I picked up the Surly rough sketch and went to town. I really like how it turned out. I also added a raven to the top of my signature to show that this was for Odin's Revenge.
