Japaneque

 This was inspired by another artists work, and looks nothing like it. It is heavily Japanese print influenced but not done exactly as a Japanese style print would be. There is a type of fox that has this kind of coloring and markings. "Flame Kitsune", 10 x 16, Micron pen, Acrylic and Prowhite on Canson board. Original and prints available. Picture 36.

Death of a Legend

Neil Peart, the virtuoso drummer and lyricist for Rush, died Tuesday, January 7th, in Santa Monica, California, at age 67, according to Elliot Mintz, a family spokesperson. The cause was brain cancer, which Peart had been quietly battling for three-and-a-half years. A representative for the band confirmed the news to Rolling Stone.

One of my all time favorite groups, his writing and superhuman drumming talent will be missed greatly!
