Bath time

Bath time

As suggested by Bobby Chiu, I just did a quick painting exercise in the style of one of my favorite artist Nate Wragg. Well it is pretty much a copy of one of his paintings.

I just love the sheer wackiness of Ward Kimball.

“The duck goes out to the right and comes in to the left, you can’t do that, that’s not logical, you need to have those tie ups, it has to make sense”

Here is the Disney Family album Ward Kimball special
