Dawg with Fez & Uberbot Super Labbit Show

Woof!
It's been a while since I've posted on my blog. Well, I guess two weeks isn't that long compared to some, but for me I like to have some sort of update every week, so it's fair to say I'm slacking. Anyway, I finished this up last week, and I just shipped it off to it's new home in paradise i.e.- Hawaii. Some backstory on "Dawg with Fez." In my quest to get back into traditional painting a few years ago, I made some little "test" paintings of some characters/doodles from my sketchbook just to get the feel of it again. Anyway, someone perusing my website saw the original mini-Dawg painting and inquired about purchasing him. Well, since the masonite panel I painted the original Dawg on wasn't prepared properly, I didn't feel comfortable selling it, as the painting might "disintegrate" in a few years- hence no more Dawg. But I did agree to do a larger, commission for the client based on the original Dawg painting- and so Dawg with Fez was born. I also included a sweet little sketch of a concept for the original Dawg painting from my sketchbook, but like a moron I didn't scan it in before I sent it off- I really need to start to remember documenting my sketches and stuff...

And on a side note, I've reluctantly decided to participate in the Uberbot Super Labbit show slated for late August. I know, I know- I'm so backlogged with commissions and other shows that I would be insane to get involved with another show, but I've really wanted to customize a 5" Labbit ever since they came out, and I love the name Uberbot. Yeah, I'm crazy. So all you on my commission list that have been patiently waiting months and months and months- sorry. Trust me, it'll all be worth the wait...
