Another Banner

Here is another banner for my blog, i am not too happy with it, but I figure I should add something as I am going. I am experimenting with color combinations, so far I am leaning towards bright happy colors. I will keep trying and hopefully will come up with a better color and design combination. I am still debating about the name, I haven't settle on anything yet but I will redirect as it comes to me.

Car Painting - Part 1

Hey, I am back in action. Last week I had a terrible tooth ache that left me without energy and brainless. All my plans got derailed and just barely now I am getting back into the swing of things. I finally started my new Car Painting as you see above. I got to tell you, I did not do this one with my new Wacom tablet, I used the mouse instead. After years and years of using the mouse I am very comfortable with it so I decided to do two different paintings, one with the mouse and one with the tablet. I will start the other one this weekend and later compare the two. The tables is very sensitive so I just have to figure out how to work with it. Practice makes perfect, right?

What to do with this name now

Another logo, I don?t know, but I am just not feeling it anymore. At first I was very excited about the possibility of using URICAL as my new company name, but now I am just not feeling it. I have to tell you, the word URICAL comes from the first three initials of my BBF and my last name. Being as we are some day getting hitched I thought it will work out in the end. But now that we are having issues (like always) and I am thinking maybe it is not such a good idea after all. It will be like getting a tattoo of your significant other and you all know where that leads to, a breakup and bad name tattoo of the person you wish you never met. I don?t want to jump ahead of myself and I think I will change my blog name entirely. It will be something like ?Becoming of a New Business? or something like that. That way if I change my mind (which I been know to do very often) about the name I can do so without any problems. I know Blogger is free and all, but I also don?t want to take advantage. Soon you will see an entry where I will direct you to a new blog. This new blog will keep me focus on my art work and the making of my new business. Later Dudes!

New Painting Project

Hi there, as soon as I get my new WACOM table, this is what I will be painting.
I love anything vintage and this is just the ticket for me. As soon as I finish it, hopefully in this life time, I will post for you all to see. I am very excited about this new gadget :), I wish I was getting it today. I checked and tracked it, looks like it will not be delivered until Friday, what a bummer :(. anyways what is a few more days.

My NEW Wacom Intuos3

I went ahead and purchased my new Wacom tablet and I am so excited about it. Can't wait to try it out and play with it. I wanted one of these for years and now since I am starting my new business I can splurge and buy one. I read hundreds of reviews and comments from people who bought it and the verdict is that everyone loves it and recommended it. Will post pictures of my new artwork with it and let you know how I do with it. My only regret is that I should have order it before the weekend so I can play with it sooner. Oh well, I guess I waited long enough, what is a few more days, huh?

Made this cupcake drawing this morning and gave it to my BBF, I think he liked it. Will promised him a real one when I see him.
I am still working on my logo design, there is just nothing that has capture my interest. I want something unique and fresh. It will come to me I promise. In the mean time I am trying to figure our a color scheme, I like the black, green and white combo you already see, but I think it is already dated. I also want something much softer on the eye. Hey, it is Friday, can't wait for the day to be over, I have so many plans, don't know where to start???!
