Aarron Bros 1 Cent sale starts Dec. 26th

I got an ad in the mail today from Aarron Bros plugging that they are starting their ususal buy-one-frame-get-the-next-one-for-1-cent sale the day after Christmas. They are extending the same deal to canvases as well. AB jacks up the prices on their frames pretty high to begin with, but still it's worth checking out if you have some stuff to frame. It's the canvas deal that is making me think it's worth a trip. I assume it's happening at most of their stores.

As a side note, one part of the ad says "buy/get any artist for a penny stock up and save!" It looks like it meant to say Artist Canvas... some kind of typo... or they are selling artists, too. If so, I wonder how they determine the "equal or lesser value" of one artist over another.

I'm trying to see how many Santas I can get done before Christmas. So far three! Also trying to do each one in a different style.

Hay guys! It's Emily from the TAG. This is just a painting I've been working on for a little bit. Trying to expand my background illustrations. :) Lemme know what you think!

We are in the midst of a "Game Jam" at work and we have created a Facebook profile for the main character... please go on there are Friend him! I would be really cool if tomorrow the judges of go online and see that he's got a bunch of friends on FB already!


Santa Connery

Sadly, missed the December TAG. Happily, there is much work to be done. Had a few minutes to turn out my Spy Santa. Inspired by "Santa Claus versus S.P.I.D.E.R."

My late santa

Father Christmas

I've always been partial to Father Christmas type images over North American style Santas. This fellow is sort of a cross between the two. I added the pockets, silver bells and holly sprig post TAG meeting. Perhaps I will color him up before the 25th.

Santa Terror!

I really wanted to be at this month's TAG meeting, but my parents were flying back home that night so I just couldn't make it. However, I did have an idea for a Santa drawing, so here's what I have so far. I'd like to ink and color it for a Christmas card.

Here is dragon I drew a while ago. At the last TAG meeting, Dan gave me a brush pen and I finished the drawing with that. Thanks Dan!

a 70's Crooner

While I know this is a sketch group and not necessarily a sculpting group but I also "sketch" in clay. So if no one is offended I humbly post this for your consumption...the accompanying drawing was done after the fact. I am really trying to develop my iown style and my own characters so crits comments are always welcome!! Hope to see you all next month!

Bad Santa

Sorry I once again missed another TAG but I wanted to at least contribite this month. Santa means business this year so dont F$%* around......!!!! I like how the drawing turned out except the eyes, couldnt get them right. Comment, crits?


This is Mark.

New Guy.

Mucho thanks to Rick for the invitation! Here are a few sketches from last nights gathering. Only three of the figures in the first image are of TAG folks, the rest was from an airport, I think. The second image is all TAG folks.

I'm tossing a misshapen log onto the platypus sketch bonfire.


Here's a doodle I did on my itouch using Sketchbook moble app. It's slow to work up a sketch clicking back and forth to change brushes and colors. It's also hard to do it with just your finger so I got a stylus which make the process easier.

BTW.... that's a spicy tuna roll. ;)
