100 Watercolors #50 - Breaking the Rules

Whooooa oh! I'm half way there.  50 themes down, 50 themes to go!  I have already learned a lot by doing these watercolors, and I'm excited to continue learning more as I go.

If you're looking at this image, thinking, "People don't really cut in line like that!" I'm sad to say that they do.  I used to see this kind of thing all the time when I lived in New York.  It was so aggravating!  So I'll just take this chance to say, if you knowingly cut in line when you were a kid, I'm sorry that you were so insecure that you thought that being a jerk would make you feel better.  If you knowingly cut in line as an adult, you are a dirtbag, and nobody likes you or your sense of entitlement!

Next week's theme: Sport!

100 Watercolors #48 - Childhood

I went for the sentimental route for this week's theme, and chose to depict a happy memory from my childhood growing up in Seattle.

If you can't tell, that's Uncle $crooge #219, the first Disney comic by the great Don Rosa, and one of my most prized possessions.

Next week's theme: Stripes!

100 Watercolors #46 - Family

I had a lot of fun painting this week's theme.  It always feels good when I can turn it into a gag.  I hope everyone knows their color wheel!

In other illustration news, it's my birthday today, and Claire had my Weezer Memories Tour Posters framed as a very nice present.  It's great to finally have these up on the wall, and I'm glad that they are safe and flat under glass.  They look nice and sharp!
