Winner of the H Contest

I'm thrilled to say that I won Han's "H" Contest with my "Heaven or Hell" drawing. Thank you so much, Han!

Here is what Han had to say about my piece:

Heaven or Hell, by Jeremy Deveraturda

Congratulations Jeremy Deveraturda, for winning my little graffiti challenge! I love your graffiti piece; it made me go "wow". Heaven or Hell left me speechless for a minute. I kept watching the replay over and over! The mysterious winged being on the cliff; the tiny minions(?) below; the blindingly bright moon are so perfectly composed. I can’t say enough how much I love this piece!

Graffiti Round Up

The latest roundup of Facebook's Graffiti program: I'm beginning to think it's replaced my regular drawing habits [aka ambigious scribbles on post-its] Other than Graffiti's annoying permanent landscape format, I think it's lovely.

Heaven Or Hell?

Han invited me to her Invite-Only Graffiti contest to compete against other great artists. How lucky I am! The theme is the letter H.

Wasted Time

Wasted Time 19x12"

Facebook sponsored another drawing contest, this time about going green. (naturally, it's become the fabulous trend thanks to one Internet inventor, Mr. Gore....;). But seriously, please save the pandas.)

Wasted Time crept into the Top 150 after a million votes -- Hooray! Also, I have two versions: I started with the graffiti drawing posted above and liked the direction so much I ended up fleshing it into an actual digital painting. Also the title is loosely inspired by the Fuel song of the same name, somehow the lyrics fit.
