Emmy Awards

Emmy Awards 2013 Los Angeles
Chelsea and I were invited to attend the Emmy awards by my wonderful significant other and we had the most fun! It was a trip of a lifetime and we soaked up every minute of it.
At the entrance and on the red carpet! We had incredible seats that were only 17 rows from the stage and also attended the Governor's Ball afterwards.
My handsome date!

A nice man from the Colbert Report let me borrow his Emmy so I could take a quick photo with it.
Sitting in our seats waiting for the show to start.

Being goofy afterwards

This drawing of a friends mare, whose name is "Magic", is a good example of how I draw a grey horse with a black background. A grey horse on white paper lacks punch (and I'm all about contrast)so I generally will do a full background when it requires it.  I use the same pencil that I use to do the rest of the drawing, but the softest lead, which also happens to be the darkest. It's time consuming, but kind of brainless work, so I try to just add a bit here and there when I need to take a break from the detail work of the horse itself. On the print you can see the strokes of the dark pencil on the paper, which provides a nice texture.
This drawing is a finalist in the Art Renewal Centers 2012/2013 Salon Competition. Over 2000 entries were submitted and they accepted the top 30% as finalists with the results being announced on April 30th. This is the first art competition that I've entered that has not specialized in Western or Equine Art, so I am thrilled to have been selected as a finalist.
Prints are available on my website.
