Marco Mazzoni

I discovered the artist Marco Mazzoni today through the Warholian Facebook Page, well worth checking out. Here's some of his wonderful pieces of work.

Violent Dreams

P.S. You may have guess that I failed at my picture a day for February thing. I have a whole list of excuses (I usually do) but I won't bore you with them. I do have a few more pictures than have been posted so far so I'll pick out the ones I like and get them up asap.

Feb Pics 2-6

Here's my February pics for the last five days including today.

 I'm really not happy with the face here but like the black water colour with gold posca pen. I also got to use my new white paint pen (white dots at top).

 I was watching flamingos on TV.

Noisy minors keep attacking our house at the moment. It's like Narcissus, they've fallen in love with their reflections in the windows.

 It had been a long day and I hadn't drawn anything so I drew this.

I just drew this one today and plan to do more work on it at some point.

It's the first of Febuary today, at least for another hour and a half. This month is going to be a big one for me. I have lots of markets lined up, some new, some old. I have the last three weeks of my SciFi short story course. My birthday, which also happens to mark the one year anniversary of this humble blog.
Despite the many things to do and the life that will undoubtedly get in the way I'm determined this month (and this year) to stay on top of, and make time for, everything. Today I also happened to buy a new sketch book, beautiful, hard bound, and full of blank pages just waiting to be filled. As a symbol of my dedication productivity and to kick off my new visual journal I decided that for the month of February I would draw a picture a day, for the month of February.

So without further ado here is the pic for Feb 1st.

Please excuse the dodgy-ness of the photo's it's very late.

P.S. I will still strive to fill your days with beautiful pictures by talented artists and not just my random doodles :)
