This is an image created to illustrate an abstract concept.  The abstract word: Power.  Get it?

Anyway, wouldn't it be funny if a little muscleman dude popped up in your lightbulb every time you flipped the switch?  Awesome.  Maybe it would play a song too, like ... We Will Rock You.

So I originally intended this blog to be a daily sketch blog, even when I first created it back in 2007.  And I was pretty good for a while, and then it became a journal blog and then a rant blog and then it was just sad.  So I deleted it.  Everything.  Finally, a few weeks ago, I felt ready to unearth SomethingLikeArt and start up a daily sketch blog again.  BUT!  I am sketching all the time in my sketchbook and I don't have time to sketch on the iPad right now.  (Because I want to do all the daily sketch blog sketches digitally.)  SO!  This is going to be rebooted as my illustration blog.  I will post a gallery, my contact information and begin having regular posts about my adventures in illustration.  Now, for those who know me, it may seem excessive and a little redundant, because I have about a thousand blogs: Treading Words, Lee On Life, and DawgArt are the only ones semi-regularly updated.  And eventually, I'll stop posting on Lee On Life because it's a school blog and someday I'll be finished with school.  So then it will only be three... ish.

Daily Sketch #14

WIP based on Langston Hughes' "Midnight Dancer"


Of the jazz-tuned night,


Sweet as purple dew,


Like the pillows of all sweet dreams,

Who crushed

The grapes of joy

And dripped their juice

On you?

Birthday Greetings

For my brother on his birthday, to help take the "sting" out of getting older.

Daily Sketch #11

I said, "What should I draw?"  So Ty ran and got a book of poetry by Emily Dickenson.  Then he read a poem.  I don't remember it, but it had the words death, chrysalis and butterfly.

ArtRage.  On the iPad.  Fingerpainting.
