Painted in Iran: "Contemplate" Acrylic on Canvas

I was just killing some time in Iran on my vacation. I painted this for my wife's cousin "Babak" aka "Bobby". I took this photo of him while he was sitting in the living room watching t.v.
I surprised him with the painting when we showed up at his new apartment for his little family party. He loved it!

Newest Painting-"Mouseketeer" Acrylic on Canvas

With my baby boy Marcus on my left arm and my paint brush on my right, I managed to finish this piece last night. The size of this is only 10" X 10". It was kinda fun working on such a small scale. I'm probably going to work on a series of these. Hope you guys like it! Enjoy!

Sketchin on cardboard...

I didn't really know what I was going to sketch, I was going to leave it there but I ended up liking it and now the foam cup box has a big hole on the side. Hahahahah! This will most likely end up being one of my next projects to paint on canvas.

My Childhood Toy


I had this toy when I was a kid and my little brother and I took it apart and couldn't put it back together again. Hahahah! We were curious in how the robot's chest would light up and play a little movie. I had this sketch for a while now but I wanted to see if I can mess with it on Photoshop.
