Alfred Julius

Worked this in Photoshop during the afternoon.  I had posted the sketch a couple weeks back.

DWright Likes my Art

Well, I teased it on Tuesday, and here it is. My darling wife was able to take part in a meet & greet with Mets third baseman David Wright, and I finished a special portrait for the occasion. Check out the gallery below for photos from the event. For those keeping score at home, this […]

David

Much excitement in Jeffville today.  Just a short two months after my brush with Neil Gaiman, I was able to get another of my portraits signed by the subject, in this instance, Mets third baseman David Wright.  No, I didn’t get to meet David myself, but my wife was able to take part in a meet & […]

Meanwhile, here’s another portrait. […]

Pretty, Witty and Gai

update#3: Neil has since changed his avatar, but for those interested, here’s a screenshot of my image in use. update#2: I’ve changed the image quite a bit.  It was really more of a “work-in-progress” before.  I hope you guys dig it! update: I was stunned and flattered to receive an email from Mr. Gaiman this evening.  Neil […]
