Adam is born!!!

Adam is finally out!

8 lb 2 and healthy... Shay will send pictures when he can. Mom and baby are happy and healthy. It ended up being a C section, but no problems at all. Proud Daddy is smiling from ear to ear and says that he's a beautiful Mosconinio (or Mosconinho in Portuguese spelling).

More news soon

Study of reclining nude (after J. Collins), graphite on paper, 8.5x11"

Recently I've been getting back into drawing. I decided to challenge myself and start a series of figure studies following the French acadmie tradition and using Tony Ryder's book as a guide. This is the first small drawing coming out of this attempt.
It took about 4-5 hours of work, using the sight-size method and no mechanical tricks of any kind. I think it's an OK start. We'll see where I go from here.

Lots of fun!
