Nehemiah: Building a City Within A City

Though it would be fun to show some of the artwork for the current RCLB series on Nehemiah:
A fun rough-draft. The idea of a shovel in one hand and a sword in the other from Nehemiah 4:17.:
But we went w/ this one...
Although I found out later that Mars Hill, in Seattle, pretty much had that exact same slogan in their Nehemiah series... >_<

Barton Flats

We went camping this weekend near Big Bear. It was all a great time until I took a nap in the hot tent and got heat-sickness. Massive headache and nausea. Next time, I'll need to remember not to do that...

9to5: vol.1, #2

9to5: vol.1, #1

A few years ago, I tried to create a comic book with my friend, Frank. We were both very busy w/ work, so I never had time to sit down and actually draw all 24 pages. I did, however, do all the thumbnails for the first issue. So now, years later, I've decided to try and translate that comic book into a web-comic/comic strip. A strip requires far less time and energy than an entire illustration page. I'm also going to try and keep the style fairly loose and not get caught up in the details. Here we go! 9-t0-5, vol.1, #1. By Frank Hernandez III and Seth Haak.

Sketchbook sketches

My theory is that if I start to post my sketchbook work on here, I'll be shamed into not updating more often.

Backyard Brewing

Artwork in another medium:
The next batch of homebrew is on it's way. This is the process of boiling the wort for fermentation. This time we have a Trappist style Belgium, an apricot hefeweizen, and a porter. All are a bit more complex than the last batch, which consisted of amber ale, pale ale, and a wheat beer/hefeweizen. Now we just need a name for ourselves.

Esther ch.3: Mordecai refuses to bow

From Esther ch.3. A painting of Mordecai refusing to bow to Haman. Most likely a refusal to bow to a Agagite, not a deity/idol thing. Refusing, as a Jew, to bow to a cultural enemy.
I wold have spent more time on details and such since it's a rather large canvas (16x20"), but the closest it will be seen is from at least 20 feet away. It's an illustration for our Esther series at RCLB. Each week, someone is doing a painting to illustrate that week's chapter. So I went w/ 'mural' detail levels... just trying to get the general feel. Let me know what you think.

Rose and Crossbones

All I could think about this weekend was how much I didn't like the rose in my last post. Here's a bit more traditional look. No yellow-highlighter this time, just red and black ballpoint pens. :)

Rose w/ teeth sketch

Ballpoint pen and highlighter on notebook paper. Had to add the green in photoshop, since I don't have a green prisma at work.

Dinner Before Dishonor

I had the honor this week of contributing a piece of chalkboard art for Jeff and Liv's Apartment Therapy photo shoot. Takes me back to my Trader Joe's, blackboard-art days. Oh the memories. I like the composition, even if I think he looks a bit more like a seagull than an eagle. Oh well, it's chalk after all. And it gets bonus points for being really big.
