One to hang on the great WordPress fridge

dragon-attack-color-5566 I may have to start a page for art-type stuff on my site or not. After I did my little sketch for the dragon loyalty award-I thought it might be a good idea to throw it in Photoshop and add some color. I am not kidding when I say that I never really tried to paint something in Photoshop before-but I liked it—–I liked it a lot! I have noticed a trend of people just putting the crappiest art they can make, adding a few un-thought out words and boom-bang-pow…We got a blog post!

I guess this is my attempt at that.

Below is the pencil sketch from last week- I might do a few more and start a page. I am at this point in my life where I am just going to do stuff and then post it—-worrying if it is “post-worthy” or if it will muck up my blog will come later. I write about music but I dabble my toes in many different ponds. And I don’t mind getting wet up to the ankles to try new stuff out.


Nothing mystical here except me thinking about what it is like to really face a dragon….because my experience tells me that no matter what you think something is like—-it is always different once you really go through it-there is no substitute for the feet on the road and the eyes on the prize! Nothing is ever what it seems.

And Photoshop is really cool.

  1. great job on the dragon! if you can figure out photoshop, it can do wonders!
    I’ve had it for a while, but never enough time to play with it. I still can’t do anything with it.
    Love what you’re doing here.

    1. I will be doing more and more photoshop as I go on with this blog. Photoshop is my obsession…it is driving me to draw and take photos just to get to the processing stuff it does. It has the power to make magic out of great ideas- I want to be a magic man! I am slowly getting there.

      1. It looks like a fantastic program. I wish I had more time to play around with that stuff. It’s all I can do to get my pictures onto the computer! 😉

  2. Great job, Wayne! I do a little drawing myself and I bought photoshop for my teenage daughter to use, but I don’t know how to use it at all. Thinking about taking a class in it over the summer. I would love to hang my stuff on the giant fridge too, lol!

    1. Careful with dabbling Marie….Photoshop is the crack cocaine of graphics programs…your eyes get all red and faraway- your family tries to unplug the computer and you snarl at them -you dress like you are a walker on the walking dead…..BUT you can’t help it …it becomes an obsession.

  3. My blog started as a diary of the video games I play, but I have so many interests I felt the need to talk about those things too. My husband told me to go for it, and so far it’s been going well.

    I don’t know if your wordpress layout calls for it, but maybe you could put a widget on the side panel and display your latest artwork. Call it the “Cave’s Fridge Door” or some such. Might be a fun way to display your drawings (which are really fun, btw!).

    1. I like that idea- it would be fun and clean up the look of my site. I change my layout from time to time- still looking for a better fit. I love the feeling of just throwing something out to world and letting it roll. I know I can draw and I know I am not terrible so this might work.

  4. You did an awesome job with that, you are super talented. I hope you will post them here, if one creative outlet brings in more followers that decide to stay and chat about music, then you’ve done a cool thing. I decided early on that my blog was going to feature the different sides of myself that I wanted to share.

    1. Thanks- I would not have even started this image without the dragon award that got the fuel pump going in this cranky creative engine of mine. So this was WordPress generated- it would not exist without the community of bloggers. What you blog about is always in flux with this call and response thing out here. Almost like great blues music—-so we will press on and see where she goes.
      I am me and don’t care who knows it-it has not always been this way. Blogging has helped me get there.
