Owls and Squirrels

I've taken to going over to the park, perching in my favorite spot along the side of the railroad bridge where I won't be bothered, and doodling in my sketchbook. The park is currently over run with squirrels getting ready for winter, so I sketched a few. I didn't see any owls but I drew some for fun anyway. They look like they want to eat the squirrels.

sepia self portrait

Self portrait, should do more of these, they are a good exercise. Done in Photoshop with a mirror on my desk for reference. Weird for me to do something like this digital but I thought I'd give it a shot.

strung up

I felt that I needed to do some original work. That bug in my head telling me I could be better than I am was screaming today. So, I picked up my brushes and... this happened. I am being entirely honest when I say I did not set out to paint something this morbid. It just sort of evolved out of my ever present love of all things figure drawing and some referencing of my gestures. My mind is going to strange places lately. I suppose this is just a manifestation.
