Hello, I have been in the visual arts field since 1989. These drawings and sketches are what I do. They are a snapshot in time of what I am trying to express or resolve. Sometimes the expression is incomplete until I can uncover a better solution.
I hope you enjoy what you see. I have had a good time growing along with the drawings. For less illustrative work, please click on the Doug's gallery link. You will find more quiet pieces there.
After quite a hiatus, I took up the suggestion by a friend and started a
scratchboard series of my travels. This is Camel Rock, somewhere
between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico. No pressure, no
expectations... just exploration.
Starting to keep ahead of challenges... A proposal for this year's Holiday Card. This one is a collaboration of my concept and my late beloved wife Lee Ann's textile designs. I hope that this would excite her... I am sure that she would have a lot to say Art Direction wise, and that would be more than welcomed. -miss you my love... so much.
I bought a set of nesting doll blanks. For almost a year I had no idea what to do with them until my dear friend Kevin Buntin suggested Classic Movie Monsters. Well.... I can't pass that idea up. So I spent the last month picking at these guys on and off. Just finished the last one on the last full week of August. I'm happy with them. I highly recommend doing something like this. It is well worth the effort.
