Well, I've been a little too busy to scan and post most of the stuff from my sketchbook. Now that school is winding down I should be able to catch up. I'll start with this "Indy" commission, I did as a favor to a student at my wife's school. It's a simple piece, done in pencil & pencil crayon on tinted paper. Hopefully he likes it. Didn't quite nail the likeness, but it's close enough, for free. I should do more of these--it was a good academic exercise.
Another recent traditional media piece. I used marker, pencil crayon and chalk pastel. I started out kind of cartoony then kept noodling away until I decided to stop. I'm giving it to one of my boys, even though he'd prefer a Nosferatu. I'm sure he will be thrilled.
Some recently scanned stuff from a couple of sketchbooks. The two figures & the wolves are from my small moleskine (almost finished the book, just one empty page left!), the "Po Nudo" is a quick in front of the tv sketch with ref. from one of the SW encyclopedia books that was lying around. Po was done in a larger 9"x12" sketchbook. Think I'm going to add color to these at some point, and maybe work the first two up into more finished illustrations.
Thanks Mike! I hope to do more traditional painting soon. I've been cleaning up my bigger studio for that very purpose! Meanwhile, I've been attending cool drink & draw events like "Drawn & Plastered." It's a new local event that looks promising so far--monthly events with distinct themes. The first one was Victorian Asylum. Nice models & costumes. It ran kinda late (midnight), so it was a bit tricky to get some good looking sketches done after a few beer. Think I might paint some of these up at a later date.
