A Brother from Another Mother

Parallel Evolution

Parallel Evolution

I have long been a proponent for parallel evolution because of all the subtle changes that have been made along the way. While there are many similarities in the Family Tree, there are just as many minute changes that separate each line. Hair type, eye color, body structure and even overall construction of the body.

The next time you look in the mirror try to envision some slight modifications in your own 'construction' and wonder where all of your parts might have come from...

Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
Your drawing is fantastic! I could stare at this for hours. Your attention to detail and how you achieve effects is something all beginner artists need to study.

Btw, I tend to avoid looking in the mirror so I won't be taking your advice anytime soon!

The Soldier

...before

...before

...before
...after... How Good Is Your Memory Now?

Sooner or later it will eventually become clear enough to the most dim-witted fool - such as our former President - that enough is enough. It was once said that pride goeth before a fall... If that indeed is the case, it is quite obvious that the predecessor didn't fall... he was hurled against an oncoming train...

It seems that the longer your tour of duty gets, the worse the memory of your Commanding Officer becomes. For example, after your first tour of duty they tell you that 'Hey, as long as you're over here already...'

The more they are out of the public eye, the easier they are to forget.

Hi Jim
We all want our men to come home, I couldn't agree more. Fantastic piece of art!

What do you see?

I could begin anywhere, but maybe I'll just sit back and wait for inquiring minds to shake off the dust of the impossible...

What would you do if...

Note from Kerry:
Jim, this is a terrific drawing (I'm sure you already know that) and, again, the eyes are so compelling...

Different Portrait Drawing

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah)

...One from column A and TWO from column B damnit!!...

...One from column A and TWO from column B damnit!!...

I'm trying to share the spotlight with human type portraits instead of my ET contributions all the time.

I'd love to get feedback here...


artist
Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
Actually, I prefer this type of art but that's just my taste only. You've done a great job but I have the feeling I've seen portrait drawing by you previously. I KNOW you are good at whatever you put your hand to.

I would love more explanation about the title you have given here, I'm sorry to say I'm not connecting with whatever it means.

If you ever wonder why I change some titles, it's because of the Search Engines and the impact that titles actually have on a website.

"...A Sister out of Time..."

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Sometimes when just staring at the night sky, I feel the tug of family unlike I've ever experienced it before. Over time, I've come to understand why...


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim,
I could feel your emotions just by gazing at your drawing. You really astound me with your conceptive drawings, well done Jim.

Our Mother is dying...

...Our Mother is dying...

...Our Mother is dying...

I really do not feel any additional comments are needed here after the Gulf spill... Do you?


***Note from Kerry:
Wow Jim, this could be the symbol of this traumatic event forevermore. Simply unbelievable, simply brilliant.

Buddy, Can You Spare A Dime?

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


What is it that they say?... Once I complained because I had no shoes, until I met a man that had no feet.

One day soon, people will come to realize that Gaia does not have an infinite supply of everything 'we' need.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
Oh so true. Your drawing is v good.

An Alter Ego

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Inside every day-dreamer resides a weight room with nowhere near enough weight to lift; a car lacking adequate horsepower to challenge your driving abilities; or an airplane that can fly high enough to make sky diving a challenge.

Then, of course, you wake up...


***Note from Kerry:
Jim, this is a jaw-dropper, the detailing is incredible. Love the hair on the big guy's arm and the glasses on the smaller man. You are good. The first question to pop into my mind was "How long would this take to draw?" You have fantastic patience! Is that a hat that the smaller man is holding? Brilliant drawing, I'm outa words.

Cap'n Will Doggett

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Capt. Will, as he was wont to be addressed, ran a taut but interesting high-drafted two master out of the Ivory Coast.

When he and his crew were not running down treasure-laden British Frigates, he spent a great deal of time hustling rum to and from the Spanish barks that drew too much water to make the channel successfully... and the 'black marketeers' hiding in tunnels all up and down the coastline.

There has always been one dream that keeps recurring and that is watching a 'tall ship', at least a four master, catching a following wind and running in about 8 - 10 foot seas. The creak of wood as the masts strain against the wind and the ominous groan from deep within the over-stuffed hold...


***Note from Kerry:
Jim, I can see in his eye that he is one mean cookie! Absolutely great drawing!

Highway Patrol

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Driving the scenic backroads of Georgia, Tennessee and Kentucky and no doubt you'll run across this fine looking gentleman. (here's a hint: don't throw him any raw meat)


***Note from Kerry:
Jim,
I wouldn't like his dentist bills! Cool drawing.
