Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles (SILA) held another "Art in the Park" mixer at Griffith Park this past Saturday. I showed up for the later half of the event, but managed to do some sketching & mingling with other artists. Below are a couple of pages:

As a Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles (SILA) member, I had the privilege of taking a trip to North Carolina last year to participate in the United States Air Force "Brush of Blue" Art Program. In this program, the Air Force gives participants the opportunity to travel to various locations – after which the artists donate illustrations/artwork (reflecting experiences and observations from these trips) to the permanent Air Force Art Collection.
Below is my painting, which is based off of a photo I took at the Luzon Drop Zone in NC. Students were training for combat control, and this particular soldier was incredibly focused and alert.
Many thanks to the kind folks at Pope Air Force Base in NC and the Air Force Art Program Office – and of course, to the brave men and women serving our country. For more information regarding this art program and SILA, please visit: http://si-la.org/airforce.html
