Man, again my apologies for not posting sooner. I actually got slammed with 2 freelance projects last week that I am wrapping up on. One was doing storyboards for a TV promo that will air on SPIKE TV and the other is character designs for a game company I have worked with before. I can't really say much more than that due to NDA (non-disclosure agreement). As soon as I get permission I will post some of those.

Anyways, the image below was done for the 5 year anniversary of THE KUTTINGROOM salon/gallery. They are the ones that hosted my very first show. So when I asked, I was more than happy to contribute a piece to the event. So my friend Cecile helped me with the title of the piece which is the same as the blog post title, SHEAR ENDS. The theme for the art was hair inspired and of course I had to depict the most awesome hair stylist I could think of. Hopefully, you can guess who it is, if not....WHAT"S WRONG WITH YOU! I kid, I kid. I knocked this out in about a day but in the next post I will show you how much work went into this before I actually attacked the final composition. I did pages of thumbnails sketches and studies to get the right attitude I wanted, you will see all of this next week as well as some insight through the various stages of this piece.

Till then please enjoy, leave a comment and I will be back fairly soon!
