Some of my Art work

"Father and Son"

Thought I'd share some of my art work. Both pieces were done by stippling. First I draw the image out on "hot press illustration board". That's the easy part. Then very meticulously, I take a black ink Micron 005 pen and make dots to create the image. The dots are about the size of a pin head. Once the image is done, I erase any pencil marks showing. When stippling an image, keep in mind for every square inch it takes about 1-2hrs. It takes a lot of patience but the results are great. And if you think stippling is hard enough, I created the "Father and Son" piece in the middle of the night, while sleep deprived from my newborn.

I love your work! Stippling was my favorite in art in High School. I wasn't any good at any of it but is fascinated me. So did Pointillism.
