Ipod Doodles on the Plane

On the flight home I used the Brushes app on my Ipod Touch to create these doodles.  I'm always jealous of other illustrator's blogs.  It seems whenever other illustrators travel on planes they find time to make these amazing gesture drawings of people walking around, or still lifes of their lunch, or of the planes...etc.  After hauling my luggage, practically taking my clothes off for security, and jamming into a plane, I can't seem to bring myself to draw in my sketchbook.  Just getting it out of my backpack seems like a major endeavor when you have a four year old kicking you in the seat behind you, and a two year old slobbering your left shoulder in the seat next to you.  I'm starting to hate plane travel I think.  

Anyway, these Ipod doodles are the best I could manage.

Utah Water Colors

My parents needed artwork for their new home in Provo Utah.  So while I was there visiting for a Spring ski trip I found some time to make some watercolors.  It had been a while since I made any landscapes and I found it surprisingly relaxing working in my parents backyard on beautiful Spring days.  The town of Provo sits against the Wasatch mountain range and just below mighty Mt. Timpanogos.  So all I had to do was look up from my make shift card table studio and I could see snow capped peaks and be inspired.  There are few things better than just sitting in the backyard watercoloring, drinking coffee, and gazing out at nature. 

Oh, the skiing was amazing too.  I felt so fortunate to be able to go to Utah this year and be able to ski for three days straight with my Family. I'm glad I was hitting the gym before I went because I felt much stronger in the Utah altitude this year than in 2011.  Spring time conditions are always a thrill because you never know what you're going to get from one hill to the next.

Also, I want to send a thanks out to my Grandparents and my Girlfriend Nicole for taking care of our dog Levi.
