A Gallery of all my Aquarium Drunkard Musician/Band Drawings

b_booker

One of my (many) trouble areas art-wise is facial likenesses. If you follow my work you probably recall that in 2011 I set about trying to improve in this arena via a weekly “portrait night” drawing–you can see the end results in a gallery here. After that concluded, though, I wanted to find a way to make …

Think of a City

tumblr_nbu4u4gne31spy5pdo1_r1_1280

Here’s my contribution to the wonderful Think of a City collaborative project. The idea behind the project is that each artist participating draws a cityscape or scene that takes place in a city with his or her contribution containing one drawn element and one color from the previous artist’s submission. There’s some pretty amazing artwork …

A Grid of Monsters

Spooky Scary color

Here’s a grid of monsters I drew as a pinup for Jess Smart Smiley’s Kickstarter book, Spooky Silly Comics: I really love bestiaries and things of that ilk so (after a bit of machinating about other possibilities) I decided that’s the route I’d go here. For projects like this, I like to introduce some randomness–just …

WFDD T-Shirt Design

Shirt_Design_on_Red_Shirt_0

I don’t usually do “freebie” work, but when our local NPR station asked me for a t-shirt design, I was glad to oblige. I’m a regular listener and an on-and-off member (mainly depending on whether I manage to remember to let them know my most recent credit card number for my monthly contribution) so I …

Lou Reed – 1942-2013

lou reed

Here’s a drawing of Lou Reed I started the evening he died and just wrapped up this evening. Since his death, people far more eloquent and far more knowledgeable about music than I have written about Lou Reed’s significance and importance. I’ll just say this: I discovered the Velvet Underground when I was in high …

Black Sabbath

sabbath

I drew Black Sabbath. I was mainly just looking for an excuse to play with coloring in Manga Studio. I’m only on EX4, but I hear there’s some pretty serious coloring features coming to EX5 later this summer. I’d really like to get Adobe products entirely out of my workflow, given their odious new pricing …

Merida from Brave, done Popeye/E.C. Segar-Style

brave_colors_halftone

I recently saw Brave and absolutely loved it… but was mystified by the lackluster reviews of it I read after seeing it. I’m going to write a post with some of my thoughts about this discrepancy between how good I thought the film was and the critical reaction to it, but I just haven’t had …
