SO I actually did finish in time.

Its been a long time, but I realized I never posted my last few Office Paintings. So here they are Andy Bernard, Erin Hannon and the one and only Michael Scott.

I'll try to update again soon with some pictures and such from the set visit I did in February where I got to actually give each cast member their own copy and also have them sign a copy for me. It was an awesome experience and one I'll never forget. :)

I'm just going to give up promising or saying that I'm going to update this blog very often, because lets be honest... probably not going to happen haha! With that said. I am going to visit the set of The Office in about a month and now sort of have a 'deadline' to get my paintings done. So yeah... maybe I will paint more soon! Anyhoo... bam BAM. Double Office portraits for today!

Darryl and Phyllis. Boom. Consider yourselves PAINTED!

Only a few more to go... Gabe, Erin, Andy and Michael.

I'm on a roll...

It may be a slow roll, but I'm on it!

Since Steve Carrell seems to think its his last season of The Office I figured I had better be getting the rest of the cast done! So here is Ryan Howard aka Temp aka Fire Guy aka The Kid.

I'm attempting to pump out the rest of the cast while I'm on down time... so keep your eyes peeled for more! 9 down 8 to go...

December was only 6 months ago...

Well... here it is June. The end of June. Yikes.

What have I been doing? Eh just workin' on some movie about some toys whose owner is growing up and going to college. Also working on some new Cars Toons...

As I mentioned in my previous post (almost 7 months ago) I auctioned off a portrait of anyone the winner chose at the Fur Ball. And here is the portrait I did of the winner John.

Fur Ball at the Skirball '09

Alrighty... so this is that other piece of artwork that I had been talking about here on the blog. This year I was asked to design the invitations for the annual fundraiser for Kitten Rescue in Los Angeles. The design sort of ended up on everything for the event, which was weird and cool at the same time. I've never done anything like that, so it was a little nerve wracking knowing this was going to be seen by so many people. Anyhoo... I'll try to be briefer than I was last yet in my summary!

WARNING: extreme dorkness follows

Me and Kevin got to the Skirball Center at 6 when it started and went to look at all of the auction goodness... And goodness there was! Unfortunately, all of the Office stuff was grouped together in one auction (2 signed photos, signed Pam and Angela bobble
heads, signed season 3 dvd set, a coffee tumbler and probably something else I'm forgetting). There was another Office fan there who really really wanted it all, so I wasn't going to bid against her and ruin her night. Plus what I really wanted... was the necklace that Jenna wore in the wedding episode of The Office this year. That was saved for the live auction later that night and in the end... it was too ri
ch for my blood.
Getting married in the next couple years folks... gotta budget!! We did score a sweet score from ET signed by John Williams and I swooned over an amazing square blue sapphire diamond necklace that I didn't end up bidding on.

Okay so we kept going and finally came across the piece that I was auctioning off. A personalized digital portrait of whoever you wanted... and if you can believe it... someone bid on it!!! For an example to set out, I sent in a framed version of my 'Dwight' Office painting that I did a little while
ago. Then we went outside and got some drinks, it was freezing outside so we weren't out there very long before coming in and just taking a breather at the table. We sat at Jenna Fischer's table this year so we didn't have to scout out and reserve seats like last year. Here is where I met the other Office fan Kristina from last year.

We walked the auction again when Jenna Fischer and her fiance Lee got there and they not only saw, but complimented my Dwight painting... COMPLIMENTED!! Then me and Kevin went and sat back down because we were exhausted from moving Kevin and his roommates to their various new apartments, plus a little bit of tiredness from Toy Story 3 OT and flying in the night before. Eventually everyone sat at the table and the show began... I sat next to Jenna's fiance Lee who was really nice and I wish I had gotten to chat with him more, but I didn't want to be rude during the event. He asked if I did the "Office" paintings for a living... which was very sweet :). Jenna was a great host and super funny, awards were given, videos were shown, food was devoured (kudos on the salad and desert... sooo good!), and then they did the live auction of Jenna's dress she was wearing, the wedding necklace and a vacation package. There was probably more, but I forget... Afterwards Jenna came over and we chatted for a little while and I asked if she would mind taking a picture. (Big thanks to Lee for taking it!)

If you find yourself in the giving spirit this year and are looking for an organization to donate to, please consider Kitten Rescue. When no one else would, they thought that a sick, 8 year old, black and white cat and a feral kitten who had been hit by a car and had a shattered leg were worth saving and I'm forever in debt to them for that.

3.5 Months isn't that long...

...right? Okay... so it is. (mah bad Garcia)

Toy Story has been an amazing experience, but takes up most of my creative energy and time. I'm also moving on Friday back down to Foster City and bidding E-ville farewell. I have been doing some art here and there, but nothing really worthy of showing. Until tonight I guess. I had been working on this off and on and tonight I decided that I'd finish it no matter how long it took.

Here ya go: Creed Bratton. I was going to try to think up something witty to say, but he says some of the craziest crap on that show and I'm feeling self conscious and inferior. So just the painting for now!

I'll try to make the next post sooner than later. I have something else to show, but I'll wait until December for that one!
