New blog for a group of guys in art purgatory trying to find out where we want to go with our love of art. We are currently working at legoland as caricature artists. This blog is a means to challenge each other and showcase our work to each other and also stay in touch and continue to motivate and inspire each other. every week (or whenever theres time) theyll be a subject posted and the members will have a week to meet the challenge and post it. Or just post whenever you want as long as you get your stuff up there. they can be sketches, rendered paintings, digital work or fingerpaints from your own blood whatever media!! ok biznatches. do work!

Coby at that big easel in the sky "challenge"

I just found out moments ago that our good friend Coby Castro has passed away. Coby was a great person with a huge heart as im sure you all have had a chance to experience. This news comes after only a few days of texting him and wondering where he was so i could visit. Usually hes quick to respond and since he had been in the hospital i thought that he might have just been away from his phone. I will miss his presence at lego and his awesome ball point sketches! There will be a get together at his home on the 21st from 1-4 and from what i understand from his mother all who knew him are welcome. man, i still cant believe it. he was a good guy to know and have as a friend. 
this next purgatory challenge (sorry for the hiatus) will be a tribute to Coby. create something that makes you think of him or anything that his memory inspires you to do. and if you can, bring the original to the gathering as an offering to his family. on your post say a few things about Cobes if youd like. I am still rather shocked and speechless so forgive me if i dont do this tribute post justice. all i know is Coby deserved peace from his pain and he now has it and i am at least thankful for that. Enjoy your new life free of pain and over priced art supplies Coby.
