Today is day 61 of the create every day challenge 2014. Where I draw, or paint or digitally paint or do some sort of digital painting or what not every week day of the year.
Whenever I feel un-inspired I look to my little girl and instantly feel more, get more, and energize more. We stayed up late tonight singing… I didn’t scold her for being up too late, we just sang. She loves the “let it go” song from frozen so she taught me the words to it and I worked on teaching her the pitch and the notes. This really should have been recorded it was classic. But it was not.
Listen, the future of rock and roll is up to us. Anyone with kiddos needs to nurture the just basic inherent love of music these kids have. I could go on a long diatribe about this but I wont. Instead here you go a quick little watercolor like sketch of a little dude deep in music.
Today is day 35, of the create every day (CED) challenge 2014 – where I draw or paint or create something and post it every day of the year.
Tonight, a drawing of me, deep winter chill.
Today is day 34, of the create every day (CED) challenge 2014 – where I draw or paint or create something and post it every day of the year.

Today is day 30, of the create every day (CED) challenge 2014 – where I draw or paint or create something and post it every day of the year.
Scott H. Biram’s new record is coming out next week, February 4. So, I thought I would do a little homage to the dirty old one man band from Austin tonight. His records are good – but man if you get a chance to see him live go do it. Its powerful. I got to see him while vacationing in Memphis back in November – good stuff. So here you go.

Today is day 16, in my create something every day challenge 2014. – I draw or paint something and post it every day of the year. So far, so good although my hands are starting to hurt. The theme this month is “Past, Present, and Future”. -and speaking of hands, I did not do a hand study tonight, back tomorrow likely with that.
Tonight I did something ridiculous. I guess its just, well – my kind of night. (ouch, sorry). I found something in my truck, while going down a dirt road, headed to a rural location, near a body of water, with a six pack of beer, after I had my catfish dinner – and here it is. The infamous T-Pain / Conway mix tape.
winner winner, catfish dinner T-Pain / Conway mix tape.
Obviously this is a joke. the thought of such a tape is pure absurd. But if popular country music in 2013 has anything to day about it – this is the American Dream. NOTE TO NEW VIEWERS – this is NOT a critique of country music. I love all sorts of music. I really dont like whats coming out on modern country radio though and this is a spoof on that. OK back to your auto-tune and regularly scheduled programming.
Today is day 15, in my create something every day challenge 2014. – I draw or paint something and post it every day of the year. January’s theme is past, present, and future.
Tonight I did an other hand study. “STUDY – dont worry about making art.” I plan on making a lot of art this year, best get to work on what hands look like making music.
here you go.
Hand Study – Synth
Today is day 14, in my create something every day challenge 2014. – I draw or paint something and post it every day of the year. January’s theme is past, present, and future.
Tonight I opted to just study – and sketch out a hand. I have been doing so much music related stuff lately I needed to work on my chops – fingers, hands -can be tricky. Its not really anything epic but I needed just to step back and not worry about “art” tonight. I think I have been trying to do too much with the every day stuff – which is fine but some concepts and paintings really need more time to work out.
So here it is, sketching day #14.
Hand Study with Guitar
Also this, from a sketchbook in 1999 – useful feedback from one of my drawing/painting professors. Forget which one. But the message sticks. See what I did there, kept with the theme…
Today is day 13, in my create something every day challenge 2014. – I draw or paint something and post it every day of the year. So far, so good heading out of day 13 of the challenge I am feeling pretty good about it. The theme this month is “Past, Present, and Future”.
Today’s date, January 13 – back in 1968 Johnny Cash performed at Folsom Prison, cutting “At Folsom Prison”. Obviously a very important performance and record. So tonight, Ile leave you with The Man in Black, Mr. Johnny Cash.
Hello, I’m Johnny Cash
Today is day 8 of the “Creative Everyday Challenge, 2014″. Where I draw something and post it every day. January’s Theme is “Past, Future, and present”
This day, in 1928 a man was born whom would change and mold music for many many years. He shares a birthday with the one and only Elvis Presley – he is Luther Perkins. the “guitar sound” of the man in black, Johnny Cash. Im not here to argue who influenced music more or whatever, but I can say with all confidence that this man is critical to rock and roll and country music. Boom-chicka-boom…
Boom Chicka Boom Chicka – Luther Perkins
I decided the last few create every day drawings were a bit too comic like so I went back to some painting roots, fired up Corel Painter X3 and worked a lot more painterly tonight. Way longer than I should for a simple create every day, but hey. Hone the skill, create, create, create. This is the goal.
