Chinese Brush Paintings

Illustration hasn't been treating me all that great these days, so I've taken up the idea of painting people's pets for $$. It's a little kitschy, but there's got to be some way I can make a living off these grossly impractical skills of mine, and the pet portrait thing seem pretty popular these days.

So here are my first few attempts, using a Chinese brush as my exclusive painting implement:

I find that I enjoy this quite a bit, so who knows, maybe this could turn out to be an alternative source of income? More portraits soon, plus: human portraits. More on that later. (I've actually been doing quite a bit of work lately, just haven't gotten around to getting it all scanned and photographed)
