Niice! I like 'em both, but the yellows in this one really do it for me for some reason. I'llhave to check your website (and congrats on the show!).

Both pieces are from a wonderful color/texture palette you've developed over the months. My wife and I visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and these two posts are marvelous reminders of the critters.

Yes, this could be right out of the Monterey Bay Aquarium! I love the colors and the touch of purple. Brilliant!

I really like this yellow one. The composition is very nice with all the extra space at the top.

Scott - These are both great, so realistic looking, yet stylized and graphic, as well. very cool!

I really like the style you have developed. Great combination of line with sweeping painterly strokes of colour on a textured surface.

Mmmmmmmmmmm.... this has really been a great subject for you. This illustration is wonderful. The combination of colors, the difference in the softly rounded fish and the pointy anemome (sp?) the texture. Your wonderful line work with the varied tapered strokes is subtle but so effective.

Yes, both are good, but this one is just a little more appealing IMHO. In fact, I could see this as a published illo in an aquarium mag.

Something fishy around here... all kidding aside I love the punch of purple. Of course I am a color magnet...the brighter the better...maybe I'm a crow!hmmm...

Nice job! Congratulations on your show too!

Love the colors on both illos - very sharp!
I also checked out your website - I like how it seems like your flipping through a sketchbook - very cool.

The mood of this piece is powerful. It's the purple playing off of the yellow. A great, creative take.

Both of these are very strong and well done. I love the texture in the background. All of your work is great.

Wow, gorgeous colors. I like the warmth of this piece, and the way the lips and anemone stand out on the otherwise monochromatic painting. Very nice. One of my all-time faves actually!

Ummm, very nice.! I love the fish with it's zebra stripes, and that great mouth, and the yellow water colors, with the purple of the urchin?

Great website, by the way.

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I love them both, mainly because your colour choices are fabulous! I love surprises--and your sudden pops of colour really brings out the whole picture.

I agree with everyone, I like both of them...you have an amazing compositional style and color combination.

I agree with Forever Young; this piece is very nice but I prefer the color contrast and the flowing composition of the first one.

By the way I haven't seen you around lately. You must be lost in the "real world."

I like them both. But my favorite is TWO. I like the movement of the pattern on the fish, very catch my attention. Great color and feel of vintage.

Been away from IF for a long time, so didn't see these when they were first posted - both striking illustrations, and the anenomes are beautifully rendered! So now you're the offical "Hand and *Fish* Master"!

Scott, you never cease to amaze me. Thanks for having coffee with me last Fri at Barnes&Noble. I like this fish. Your creative talent is wonderful to watch!
