[x] Gnomes in the Shed

My good friend and awesome artist, Tony Nguyen, did a rather nice sketch of gnomes escaping a shed based off of an assignment in Ruben Perez's visual development class at SJSU. Although a good sketch and very cute story moment, Ruben thought that it could be simplified. Tony went back to the drawing board and I asked him if I could go ahead and digitally paint this piece rather than let it become buried and forgotten in the fray of his extremely busy academic schedule (something that happens very often with many sketches, drawings, paintings and such, not just in school but during any intensive work schedule; sometimes we get so busy that even some good ideas get shelved and forgotten). Anyway, so rather than let that happen, Tony let me finish it. This should prove to be a very fun piece to paint. This be fo' you, homie. :-)

hola juan,

thanks for stopping by my blog as well! you know its tough, I've been busy just trying to get things in order before I start SJSU AGAIN IN THE SPRING!!! Ahhh, am I nuts? Probably. But I think its for the best, get that Masters, which basically means more and hopefully better work fot the portfolio.
