My blue phase. Picasso had it too :)
It's a very quick drawing, just for fun and practice.

Another day, another birthday :) This time it's Pedro Vargas , a friend and a terrific artist. He's currently working on his own animated cartoon, so wish him Happy Birthday and good luck on his mission. These are his own characters, and I hope I haven't butchered them too much.

Speaking of cartoons, I don't think I ever posted my Ren & Stimpy fan art. Here are two pieces (one of them was a special New Year greeting), and I'll put more R&S drawings in some other occasion.

And don't forget your daily visit to the blog of Ren & Stimpy's dad. It's one of internet's brightest spots, beside my blog of course :D

    Be careful when you slice your birthday cake. It might contain a special magic ingredient - a birthday cake fairy :)

    That's a birthday card for my friend Sean. I originally made it in color, but something didn't look right in that version. It was a first time after many months that I wasn't really able to hit the right color scheme. So, I tried with the sepiatone version, and the picture finally made sense. In fact, it increased the weird and surreal atmosphere.
    So, here's to you Sean. And many happy returns!

    The first Al Pacino caricature on HammersonLand. Probably not the last. I made a real mess of the poor guy :)

    At the kind request from a sweet young lady, here's my self-portrait. But wait a minute, why it doesn't look like me at all? The reason is simple: this picture belongs to that weird and rare category of FAKE self-portraits :)

    This is how people imagine me to look like... I took that description and made a more extreme version of it. The result: a portrait of a typically messy artist who lives and creates only in the state of total chaos around him. I know lot of people like that, especially among the artists and computer "experts". Since I'm some kind of both, I should be an uber-nerd too, but somehow I'm in many things a total opposite of the dude in the picture. Maybe I need to add some chaos in my life :)
