GREEEEEEEEETINGS EARTHLINGS God is Gooooood.

 Ok, so long time no post. But for those who are not following on Facebook here you go.

  I LOVE Putin's face and wanted to finally paint him in oils since the last time I painted him it was in acrylics. (I've enclosed that image here as well.)

 So I created this scene of Putin showing off his roosky pecs in undies.  I hope to paint it soon.

Gotta run.

Greetings Earthlings GOD IS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!
 Happy New Year and sorry for the lack posts.
 I still have'nt given up on blogging.  I am on a Facebook sabbatical so I figured I'd post here.




 This post is the latest cover of The Weekly Standard.
The goal or object of the commission was to depict Harry Reid as a tiny man in a big job.

 I'm enclosing the art directors rough and a few sketches and the final. Philip Chalk is a very sharp art director whom I've had the privilege of working with all these years.

 I always sketch the face and establish the likeness before I move into the job. Finding the right image is always THE KEY.

 Gotta run. God has been good to me.

Thankful Jesus sits on the throne.~T

Jesus lives and so does T. Lively!


GREEEEETINGS EARTHLINGS.  GOD is GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD and He reigns over all no matter who is in the WHITE HOUSE.

 Today just a quick post to inform you of my new children's book website tlively.com.

 It's my new site soley devoted to my childrens book work.

 In case you are wondering why the name tlively ~ Lively is my middle name and so Tlively has a cool ring to it.

 The best way to get to the site is type tlively.com into google.

 I'm also posting a  few sketches from the book The Boy and the Ocean due out in March. It's available for pre-order at Amazon now.  I've also posted a manuscript page with a few of my initial scribbled ideas before I commit to anything.
 




Gotta run.  Thankful Jesus lives.

Greetings Earthlings.
God is gooooooooooood!!!!!!!!!!! Long time no post. I'm basically on Facebook.
It seems like Facebook is the new blog.

I just wanted to post  a quick post of an upcoming book on the Cross of Christ that I might begin painting in 2013. The book is a narrative on the Cross from my great friend Rick Gamache, who also happens to be my pastor. The title is "The Crucifixion" a narrative by Rick Gamache.
 Here's a few sketches.

 Gotta run, thankfully I'm busy. I'm also painting a new children's book due in Jan., out in the spring for the great Max Lucado.
 Stunned He loves me and was crushed for me. He lives~T

GREETINGS EARTHLINGS!!!!!!!! Long time no post. Forgive me.

Today I'm posting the book cover for Matt Labash's book, Fly fishing with Dick Cheney/Darth Vader.
 This is the Dick Cheney who used to be fun to draw. Now that he's lost weight he's just not as fun to draw.
 Also included are the sketches I did of his face. Usually if the first choice does not feel right I do another face. Sometimes the client will make a change as well, but usually if I'm really happy about the sketch they love it. Also included is the back cover.




 GOtta run.

Have a few things happening on the children's book front that I'll be posting in the future.

 Glad I'm held by the King and married to the Queen. ~T
