A recent television heroes and villains theme over at PLANET-PULP had my full attention. I have been wanting to paint a Lynda Carter portrait for quite some time. That theme was the perfect reason to get started.
This painting is available for purchase.

I had a little contest over the weekend to increase my Instagram followers. It was interesting to see the growth. Wasn't huge (10 new followers) but enough to make it worth the effort and it's a great way to interact with your audience. It was a positive effort - I'll definitly be doing it again soon.
I use instagram to post all kinds of behind the scenes stuff from the drawing board. Follow along here!!!
The winner picked himself a Joker - one in which Mark Hamill himself favorited on twitter. So that pretty much made my day right there.
Just a quick post today - I have two new pencil commissions to share. A hilariously awkward Tina from Bob's Burgers and a Sadness from the new Pixar filck Inide Out.
My commission list is open - email me if you would like me to sketch you a character!
Single character pencils are only $10!
Here's a commission from a few months ago - Galactus and the Silver Surfer. This was a first for me - I have never illustrated either character prior. I discovered inks are a bit tricky to work with when you're trying to mimic a chrome surface. I hope to get another Surfer request soon - he's quite fun to draw.
Recently a friend asked me for a Walking Dead commission of Daryl holding the heads of his friend and his friends daughter as a birthday gift - I was happy to oblige as this is a favorite series of mine and let's face it, drawing zombies are always fun.
I stopped into the post office the other day to ship out a few commissions and I picked up a set of stamps and to my surprise they had Batman! I want to get another set so I can keep one as a keepsafe. You can pick up your set right here.
I've been absent here for a long time and well...not much to say other than life happens and sometimes the little stuff falls to the floor.
Aside from the big events I've sludged through, I have been debating on starting a new website from the ground up and abandon this platform. So a part of me has been resisting adding new content to "a site that I was going to stop using". Well as the months went by I realized that this new site isnt really happening anytime soon. I will get to it eventually but in the meantime I've decided to jump back on here at Oo-De-Lally more as I go about my creative ways.
My last post to this site was last Easter and that's inexcusable.
Ill be posting more art, TONS of sketches soon and adding a gallery that houses all of them and I will be trying to keep my blog moving along with my ridiculous musings as well sharing cool stuff I find on the internet, things I'm doing along with the usual art updates and gallery announcments.
Thanks for sticking around guys.
