Big ol' funky eyewear.


More brush work. There's gonna be a lot more of these coming down the line.


Working on that brush thing. Sketching is one thing but inking is a whole other animal.

A sketch for something I have been fooling around with for a while.

OutDoor Sketching

Here's todays story. There I am sitting outside one of my favorite diners in the neighborhood. It's one of the first days where the temperature is above 30 degrees. My sketch book is on my lap and I'm just sort of doodling. You know how sometimes when you sketch your not working on any one thing. You just do that stream of consciousness thin. Well that was me on this fine and lovely day. Well anyway I'm just putting the pen to some blue line when I notice a shadow over my left shoulder. I do what I always do and ignore it thinking that the person will go away. (this never works by the way.) After about 3 or 4 minutes the person leaned in close enough that I could smell the onions from their chicken wrap lunch. With out even a greeting these words emerge from their mouth. "Did you draw that?"

How am I meant to reply? I mean they stood there and watched me finish the blue line and start to put ink to it. It's like walking over to some one and asking "is that your underwear". Or maybe asking "is that your left earlobe". And this is not the first time I have had some one watch me draw some thing and then ask me "Did you draw that?". It's some times like they think it's a joke or that they are not quite sure what they just saw. Maybe There was a rip in the space time continuum and the drawing just flew out of my butt. Maybe I will never find the answer to why people ask me the same stupid question over and over again. Crack smoking twitch monkeys.

Revisiting Process Junkie

A little less than a year ago I posted a couple of lines about the goings on over at Process Junkie. Back then they were announcing some of the new books they were publishing. They were also calling for entries for one collection of online artists. One year later and the list has grown. Amongst the many changes is the growth of a new publishing branch. Brand Studios now publishes sketchbooks and artistic collections. Talents such as Phil Noto and Ross Mitchell have found a new place to publish some of their more creative work.

And now they have published a new collection titled "Eye candy from strangers". A new collection of talent that you may not have heard of but you will grow to know. So when you get a chance drop on over and browse. Buy a book and help spread the word. Plus you can check out the artwork of Alberto Ruiz and see why I keep writing about these guys.

The blackout

I don't understand why more people are not visiting this guy. J.C. Hutchins is a podcast novelist. Maybe you have heard of him or his audio novel "7th Son". And maybe you have been to lazy to check it out. Well do it now! For information on the upcoming 7th son: Obsidian J.C. Hutchins announces 7th son: Obsidian

Head sketch

Another headshot from my sketch book. I hope to post a lot more of these.

In the grenn

Lateley I have thought that some of my work is a little storyboardy. I think after this one maybe I'll try a switch.
