Austin's Artwork

Austin has produced drawing artwork over the years, mostly for his enjoyment. He wrote comments about some of them as part of a class project in high school.

"This picture was supposed to be a comic likeness of myself."

"I don't really remember what I was trying to imitate when I drew this [man]. All I know is I did it all in pen, and by the notebook paper background you can guess that I drew it at school."

"This was a picture I drew when I was experimenting with color. I normally only draw in black and white, but this turned out alright."

And this was how he drew it. The lamp was turned down low, and set to give good contrast on his face.

For a while, Austin was in a sculpture class at a local art studio. This tiger was made with a plastic molding compound, fired, and then painted. The instructor noticed that he instinctively used a dry-brushing technique during the painting.

We really enjoyed this one because of the tiger's mischievous look.

In 2006, Austin and Janae's Christmas gifts to family were watercolor paintings that he did of Japanese dancing cranes.

He did several poses.
