Portrait Gallery

I did a lot of artist trading cards in February and March, 2018. Here is an assortment of portraits of people from my imagination. Take a walk along this little gallery and see if anyone looks like a person you’d like to meet?

Space Inhabitants

Two postcards depicting space people. Two different kinds of space people. I imagine there are lots more varieties of beings out there in the cosmos, but these are the ones who let me make a picture of them.

Postcards from February and April, 2018.

People Sitting

Some people are busy, some are contemplative, some social, some taking life as it comes.

Can There Be More of Them?

Yes. More small portraits.

I painted random acrylic colors on ATC-sized Claybords. I drew in India ink around the shapes that made up a person (I thought). The next day I covered the backgrounds in gray so that the figures stood out.

A real rogue’s gallery, maybe? And how about those aliens who have sneaked in?

Seen on the Street

I did these tiles from photos taken in Philadelphia, PA, at various times. The scenes are more or less faithful to the original, as I saw fit!

Watery Environs

One person is in hot water. The other is trying to stay dry. Yes?
