Commissioned Pieces - "Zappa and Resident"

Above: "Zappa and Resident / 01"  -  and below:  the sketch for this piece, prior to rendering. Watercolor, ink, colored pencil and crayon, 8x10 inches.
And below:  "Zappa and Resident / 02"  --- When I was preparing the thumbnail sketches for this project I couldn't just settle on the 'best' one of two that I did, so I went ahead and rendered a completely unnecessary second version. 
Ink, colored pencil, crayon, collage.

A New Comission - Plus Some Oldies from the Vault

Next up:    This year (2013) has found old art of mine turning up online that I no longer own, following are some old pieces that I have either recently scanned or found again via a friend.
First, below is a jam page by das ubuibi of BCO and I that turned up recently, I hadn't seen it in 15 years or so. Ink and mixed media on board, circa 1993. I did the deer leg and bottom of the page, das did the caption and upper background. I'm hoping to get a higher-res version of this.
