Happy Birthday Anthony Daniels aka C-3PO

Mr. Daniels turns 67 today! 

I wanted to pay tribute to the man who plays C-3PO in the Star Wars Trilogies.... So I decided to create a vector based illustration with Mr. Daniels wearing the famous golden droid costume.  I honestly had sooo much fun working on this... I lost track of time and stopped counting my layers, LOL! Enjoy and thanks for checking it out :)

Cathedral Sketch

 (St. Dominic's Cathedral, San Francisco)

What better way...but to spend a sunny day... roaming the streets of San Francisco!!! I happened to be in the Japantown area and stumbled across St. Dominic's Cathedral.

See those arched supports? Those are usually found on Gothic Style Cathedrals.... in Europe! So to come across this view was a treat.

I only had a small watercolor pad but wanted to try something new..... well, new for me.

I thought it'd be fun to set up at the corner of the parking lot and do a quick watercolor sketch.... then snap a photo.... super imposing my sketch over the existing church. The angle and size was pretty darn close.... it's always fun to experiment on the fly!
