Ybasthten of Eir-Endi
My character in a friend's D&D campaign.  Ybasthten (rhymes with "Sebastian") is a student of the swordly arts. Marooned in a distant land with no master to teach him and no books to study, he makes his way as a warrior for hire in a city that doesn't share his concepts of honor...

Mixed watercolor, ink, and pencil. 
Extraplanar eusocial ant-creatures.  I did these in pen and watercolor pencil.  I like what the pen does for my lines, but the watercolor is not consistent enough for me yet.  Still, it very much helps with visualization.  :-)
Random Encounter
I was teaching my son to program, and he made a random monster generator. I present to you my rendering of its first production output: an aquatic, exoskeletal creature with a spiny tortoise shell and a radioactive spear.

My long-awaited vacation has come... I'm so looking forward to it, both for the relaxation it promises and the likelihood that I'll have time to spend with not only my loving family but also my sketchbook, which I often treat like an estranged lover during my day-to-day life.

Maybe one day I'll be able to just take an art vacation.  That would be awesome... :-)

Do you find off-time to be artistically inspiring?  If so, are there places you go that help stimulate you, or is it just a break from the daily grind?  :-D
